When I began to carry concealed, I was wearing a thin leather belt that I had bought from Target for $14. I had seen people rave about having a good, sturdy belt for carrying, but I thought mine was great for it. Eventually, I decided to see, first hand, what all the talk was about, and MAN, was I wrong. The Concealment Solutions Python Gun Belt is an amazing belt for carry. It is made of two thick pieces of leather, sewn together, which make it very rigid and sturdy. It is 1.5” thick. The buckle is all metal, with no physical gaps, which prevents it from eventually spreading. I wanted a greater range of adjustment, so I asked for the holes to be spaces closer together at .75” rather than 1” and Jason, the owner of Concealment Solutions, happily obliged. The thickness of the leather keeps it from twisting, folding and sagging under the weight of the holster and firearm. I do with there were more buckle options and tooling/pattern options, but I’m sure if you contacted Jason, you may be able to work something out. For added rigidity, Concealment Solutions offers a Kydex lined model, but I didn’t feel it was necessary, for me. I have been wearing this belt for over two years, and it is still just as good as the day I got it. I recently did have to buy a new one, but that is only because I have lost weight, and it was beginning to wrap around my waist. My experience was just as great the second time as the first. You can also expect very good and quick service from Jason. If anyone needs a great leather belt for concealed carry, I can definitely recommend the Python Gun Belt.
