    Big Ed that works there has always been great to deal with.

    Those guys sell a ton of web / mail order. Lot's of holsters belts, leather. They can also order just about anything you ask for, firearms included.

    Oh and they sponsor GRNC

    1"1/2 wide dress gun belt. Its on their web site under the belts. Was gonna order a 1'3/4 wide but the man said the 1"1/2 inch will hold up a heavy 45 or Hi-cap 40 etc. Measured all my belt loops in jeans an couple pair of dress pants and the 1"3/4 would work. But some of my dress shorts it would have been too wide. Anyway it was around 90 bucks hope it was worth it.

    The Belt Man makes awesome leather belts. I'm pretty happy with my Wilderness Tactical nylon belt though.

    The guys at Gunner's Alley are super-nice and very helpful. If I recall, the leather belts they sell are made by The Beltman (Jim). If you search the 'net, you'll see that Jim has a reputation for high-quality belts. I visited his workshop in Apex and ordered mine in person. It's a black 1.5" bullhide with a shark skin cover and it's a fine piece of art that holds my gun very nicely IWB or OWB. Worth every penny.

    I also have a Wilderness instructor belt that I believe is available at Gunner's Alley as well. It's not nearly as "nice", but it works very well, is infinitely adjustable between the various comfort zones depending on what I just ate, and I don't have to worry about it getting dinged. I wear it with my work clothes and my Beltman belt otherwise.

    Great guys to deal with! I go by there every couple of weeks and have two belts I ordered from them. I also have a dozen holsters, shooting glasses and Pro ears for me and my son that have all come from Ed and Bill. Feel free to just call them to check on the status of your belt order.
