Can a Good Gun Belt Assist with Concealment?

Can a Good Gun Belt Assist with Concealment?

 bhgb_02

People often ask is it really necessary to carry a heavy gun belt when concealing your weapon? Some people may argue that a gun belt is noticeable and people will know that you have a weapon on. FALSE!!

A gun belt appearance is like any other belt. They look the same. However, it’s the quality and internal that make a belt a gun belt. It’s like being a twin, you may look the same on the outside, but inside is what makes them different from each other.

Just a few reasons why it is necessary to wear a gun belt when concealing your weapon. A full grain leather gun belt will help reduce the movement of your weapon and or holster. There will be NO sagging of the pants, weapon or holster. The holster will ride very close to your body. That will help to minimize the possible printing of your weapon against your shirt.

How To Choose the Right Belt?

How to choose the right belt?

 bhgb_00

When it’s time to buy a new belt one may think about the price, style, brand and quality.

When you are carrying a weapon you need to think about what you are going to be carrying that holster on. VERY IMPORTANT!!!

I would not suggest carry a Dan Wesson on a $20 belt, that just a down grade.

Department store belts are flexible and thin. They may say genuine leather, but actually you’re getting leftover leather scraps that have been glued and sewn together. You may get lucky and the outer thin layer of the belt may be covered with top-grain leather. Most of the time it’s synthetic leather material.

If you are going to be carrying a weapon on your belt you may want to consider something stiffener and more durable to with stand the weight of your holster and weapon.

By carrying a stiff belt you will increase the draw of your weapon.

You can buy a regular gun belt, but make sure it is double layer with full-gain leather not synthetic, genuine or bonded.

Variations that you can add to your belt to increase the stiffness:

  1. Double stitching
  2. Internal stiffeners
  3. Wider belts (standard 1-1/2”, dress 1-1/4”, tactical 1-3/4”)

When carrying a weapon OWB (outside the waistband) you will need a stiffener belt than carrying IWB (inside the waistband).

Why NOT to buy CHEAP holsters/belts?

Why NOT to buy CHEAP holsters/belts

 elephant rig.jpg 3 resize    The belt is not sagging with the weapon in the holster. 

Keep in mind that any material pliable enough to wrap around your body comfortably, is going to stretch. Stretch a material too much or too often and it will began to lose its ductile stretch. That is why cheap holsters/belts are called CHEAP…they have to be replaced over and over.

MTR Custom Leather uses 2 pieced of leather. We then bond and sew the 2 pieces together making the leather product harder to stretch.

A solid foundation is needed when carrying firearms. The foundation needs to be set in a permanent position as well. If the foundation is not solid than the weapon will not be secure. A good leather product will lock in the weapon or the holster to the belt. The balance of your weapon and or holster will be effective by the thinner material. A good leather product will help minimize the movement of your weapon and or holster, allowing the leather to ride close to the body and reduce the possibility of printing. These are the main factors why we make our product tight and out of heavy leather. This will assist with proper conceal carry and protection of your firearm.

On the flip side, one may say why do we make your leather holsters so tight, I can’t even pull my gun out fast..after only a few days of having the holster? Reason one, how our body works. When we are under stress due to an emergency that may be occurring we have some cognitive symptoms. Cognitive symptoms are memory problems, inability to concentrate, poor judgment, seeing only the negative, anxious or racing thoughts and constant worrying. Therefore, our motor skills become depressed. Causing us to be clumsy. If our leather is loose, sagging, stretching out against the body and moves, than drawing your weapon may be a problem. However, practice and repetition of your weapon can help produce you to overcome those factors as well.
