    good gun belt?

    What is a good sturdy best to use for a IWB holster. I have the Galco Summer Comfort. I have a regular leather belt but it doesn't feel very sturdy. The belt doesn't have to be leather. Just need something that doesn't flex much

    Sootch00 from YouTube swears by the "Bull Belt" from:

    You can even get a discount with the code "sootch00"...

    Belts from DeSantis are supposed to be great, too. They are made for concealed carry:

    BELTS — DeSantis Holster

    If you want a really stiff, strong, belt; Comp-Tac makes belts reinforced with Kydex:

    And, since you have a Galco holster, Galco also makes gun belts:

    Galco holsters; Holsters; Gun holster, pistol holsters, western holsters, shoulder holsters, leather holster and Glock holsters

    There's lots of places you can get a good, sturdy belt. If you have a "western wear" store close to your house they usually have lots of leather belts. You'll want leather; nylon or other fabrics won't have the rigidity that you are looking for. If you have a flea market near to you there might be a leathersmith there who'll make you a custom belt--expect to drop some $$$ for that, though. I hope this helps and gives you some ideas.

    Here's a belt maker that a lot of people recommend, an alternative to mass produced "name brand" that may or may not be all that and a bag of chips: Gun Belts by The Belt Man

    My personal favorite is a nylon web belt I found at Walmart. Good width, very stiff and supportive, came in black or brown, and was only $10-12. Everyone else wanted $30-50. That sold me!

    I'd second this!

  7. I use this one and like it. It is only $20 and is double sided (black/tan):

    5.11 Tactical 1.5" Double Duty TDU Belt

    I've tried the "super stiff" belts, and had never been able to wear them comfortably. I was thinking about ordering from the beltman when I found these good folks at a local gun show. A Better Belt USA Their dual layer bull hide belt is a true "workhorse". The price was great and the belt is even better. I've worn mine for about a year, and it still looks and performs like new.

    Crossbreed holsters also have good gun belts at relatively cheap prices
