A Good Gunbelt

Posted by Rob Longenecker on August 2nd, 2006

“Do I really need a real gunbelt?” is one of the frequent questions on gun forums on the internet. 

The answer is yes, you do need a good gunbelt, not a belt made with only a single strap of leather.

A Tucker Gunleather gunbelt is made with two strips of premium leather, bonded and sewn together, which prevents twisting and sagging. The lamination provides the strength – like laminated wood does for construction.

Wouldn’t you rather feel your gun is a natural part of you when you move instead of something heavy you have to put up with all day?

A good gunbelt spreads the weight of the gun over a large area on your waist instead of just where your holster is riding.

Why should you care? Comfort, number one. You don’t have to wear your belt so tight to hold the gun securely. Secondly, you aren’t constantly pulling at your holster to hike it up or reposition it which calls attention to the fact you are carrying.

When you order from Tucker Gunleather you specify which belt width you want, 1-1/4″, 1-1/2″, 1-3/4″, etc. Occasionally, we’ll even make belts up to 2-1/4″ wide.

Keep in mind that belts are made 1/16″ narrower than the nominal width of the belt in order to fit readily available buckles. That means that a 1-1/2″ belt is actually 1-7/16″.

I’ve actually had one or two customers call after receiving their belt and fuss about the 1/16″ inch. I just tell them that it’s the same with all the makers I know of. Now you know.

The belt slot should be slightly oversize to allow for belt insertion and repositioning the holster a bit. It does not cause a problem with holster stability with our holsters.

For you big kids out there, we make belts in lengths up to 70 inches long and only charge $10 extra over 50 inches.

For those who like to change out your belt buckle, you can do that easily with a Tucker gunbelt because we use Chicago screws, not rivets or stitching where the belt holds the buckle.

    I’ve also found that a good belt is more comfortable and hold my pants up better in the long run. They don’t get that sag/twist/bend thing in the back.
