    I found some quality leather gun belts while visiting family here in Ecuador for $20 and I want you guys the opportunity to get them too.

    First question, what kind of belt do you use for carrying? Is it a regular dress belt? Those don't tend to be the best when it comes to daily carry. They get out of shape easily and some holsters have issues grabbing ahold of them. And they don't hold up the weight of even light guns securely. Another reason to use a thick belt is so loop holsters have a much less tendency to slip around and end up in an uncomfortable or otherwise bad position. They measure 4cm wide which is a bit over 1.5inchs.

    Attached below are the pictures. They are genuine leather double thick belts with a composite layer stitched inside to help it maintain it's shape for the long haul. They are really sturdy. I bought myself 2 already, one brown and one black.

    They also have a zipper pocket (pictured) that is very low profile for whatever small item you'd like to keep safe, IE cash, handcuff key et.

    If you want one I'll be goin back to the area of Ecuador that sells all the leather goods prior to leaving. Please post the overall length of belt you want (measure a belt you currently use) and what color and I'll make it happen. If you need it shipped it'll be an extra 2 bucks. I'll ship all orders on the 19th.

    I'd appreciate it if you use paypal for the purchase unless I know you personally. That way I can keep it all organized. The email for that is

    stjohnmo@gmail.com

    Compare to belts of similar quality at different leather and holster websites and you are saving over 60 bucks a belt.

    Pocket, low profile. I think it's a pretty useful idea. Sewn directly into the leather and seems to be a high quality zipper.

    Side View (2 layers of leather and 1 of a composite).

    If you are interested or have questions just post on this thread or PM or contact me at

    sweet. just wanted those that are around that don't use a good belt the opportunity to get one at a good price. I know a few people personally, i won't mention names that use stretchy belts and other not so ideal type belts for carrying with the excuse... it's good enough..

    When are you leaving? I'm pretty sure I'd like one, but I'm not sure you are still in the area? I live in Cruces.

    This is awesome, I need an OC belt, but don't have paypal. They require a bank account/card and I quit both of those habits a while ago. Can we arrange something else?

    I could send a money order. Make it $25 for the bother.

    I use one of two:

    Comp-Tac kydex reinforced belt

    This is a great belt.


    Galco Matrix Belt
    http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterP3.asp...;CatalogID=254

    The Galco has the advantage of being low priced. It's pretty good, but doesn't support heavy guns as well. It's fine for polymer and smaller framed guns.
    Does anyone here actually believe that the Founders were sitting around in John Adams' tavern UNARMED because they believed a bar should be a gun free zone?
