    I've carried for a fair while (20+ years) but only very recently (2 years ago) followed advice I'd read over and over: if carrying a handgun of any appreciable girth, do yourself a favor and get a decent belt.

    I've worn-out more cheap belts than I could keep up with over these years. Typically favoring heavier handguns (SIGs, 1911s, etc.), I constantly battled holster-sag to no avail.

    Granted, I don't pack a gun on the belt ALL the time these days. But a couple of years ago, I purchased a double-thickness leather belt from A&G Gunleather and now, frankly, I'm spoiled.

    I wear this belt virtually all the time, whether I'm carrying on the belt or not. I actually have TWO of them I like them so much!

    I opted for A&G's "Quick Ship" belt in brown, 1.5" width, with a brass buckle. The choices are virtually limitless with them and, in sure, with the many, many other leather-crafters out there.

    While I've not yet personally tried them, I hear very good things about various "gun-carrying-oriented" non-leather belts such as the 5.11 Wilderness Instructor line. I'd like to give one of those a try sometime.

    What have your belt-carrying experiences been?

    Funny you say that - some of the best belts I had prior to getting one from A&G had come from either Walmart or Academy Sports!
