Episode 405 On Selecting a Quality Concealed Carry Belt

When it comes to carrying a concealed handgun it pays to understand that your belt is the foundation for successful concealed carry.  Instead of acknowledging this simple idea, many people focus on the gun.

We all understand why this happens, because guns are sexy and mysterious.  The fact remains that without a good belt, you aren’t likely to carry your gun.


Why?  If you have tried to carry with a crummy belt, you know:

  • A belt that doesn’t support your gun is uncomfortable
  • A flimsy belt meas a gun that is constantly changing position.
  • A belt that is the wrong size for your holster loops doesn’t stay where it belongs.
