Concealed Carry Tips: What to Look for in a Gun Belt

by Ella Wilson Love to write
After you purchase a firearm, your mind as a consumer may immediately go to holsters and ammunition. However, you should always focus on the benefits and overall efficiency of investing in a gun belt to use with your new firearm or existing gun collection. With the vast number of options available, it may be difficult to narrow the list down to one specific model or type. Here are several key points that you should seriously consider and examine before finalizing your purchase: 

Focus on High-Quality Structure

You invested a considerable amount of money into your firearm (and even into your holster) to ensure that you purchased high-quality products. Not very many consumers would enjoy paying any substantial amount for a low-quality gun. This is the same mentality and approach that you should have when it comes to shopping for a firearm belt. 

There may be a wide variety of different types of these belts available with different types of sizes, materials and structures. However, you should primarily focus on the highest-quality material that is designed to secure your firearm for extended periods while also fitting comfortably on your waist along the way. 

Stay Away from Traditional Belts

A common mistake that is made by inexperienced gun owners is the belief that “all belts are the same.” To save a few bucks or even avoid the inconvenience of buying a separate belt, you may even consider using your ordinary belt to carry your firearm. Keep in mind that normal belts that you usually find in clothing and department stores are made for fashion and the basic function of keeping your pants secure – not your firearm.

Your ordinary belt is not specifically designed to last very long after carrying and securing the full weight of your gun and holster. Studies have shown that you would likely have to replace that belt every 1-2 months at the most. However, paying the added cost to invest in a high-quality gun belt made out of thick leather with double stitching, an internalized stiffener and impressive craftsmanship could easily last you 8-10 years. It does not take very long to do the math and discover it is the most fiscally responsible option for long-term investments.

Comfort is Not a Top Priority

Another key element that you must consider as you shop for firearm belts is the fact that comfort cannot be your top priority. As mentioned above, department and clothing stores offer regular belts for fashionable purposes that blend style and structure with comfort. However, the very best gun belt on the market to meet your specific needs may not necessarily be the most comfortable option available. A general rule of thumb is to focus on the quality more than the comfort – knowing that even the most comfortable belt can become uncomfortable after wearing it for a considerable amount of time.

Explore All Options

As is the case with any type of shopping, you should explore and study the market of available firearm belts closely, carefully and competitively. Make sure that you explore all of your options and avoid being too quick when it comes to buying the very first belt you come across.
