    Greg Peters (Peters Custom Holsters) is making a Holster for my HK P2000SK and I was looking for advice on what gun belt to choose. Greg mentioned he switches between a Ted Blocker double thick 1.5" black leather dress belt, and a Wilderness 1.5" instructor belt. Suggestions, comments, what's your gun belt?

    I have belt from The Beltman on the way as well as a Milt Sparks. Both 1.5", bullhide just different colors.

    I'm holding of on more until I see the one from The Beltman. His prices are decent and it seems no one can find anything bad to say about his work.

    One concern is the thickness, especially in the front since most good gun belts are near 1/4" thick to start with.

    My gun belts (which I wear every day) are by Lou Alessi. Josh Bulman and Milt Sparks also make good gun belts.

    The Wilderness belt is my choice

    We don't sell them but two of us wear the Wilderness belt daily or at matches. You can see them at http://www.thewilderness.com/ . I've also been known to visit Ross and buy a nice thick leather belt for cheap.

    Another vote for The Beltman belts and Milt Sparks VM2's. Both are great quality and will last you for years.

    My Beltman came in today. I'm really pleased!!

    I wear about a 32 pant and 34 belt. I used their method of measuring and came up with 35" which I thought might be a tad too big. It's not at all!! It's actually got me in the middle of the holes (I had mine made with 7 holes spaced 3/4" apart) to I have good flexibility with any pant or either holster I use, and without a holster it fits great also.

    I also have a Milt Sparks in a 36 that's a tad bit to big. Based on it, I'd say I need a 34 in theirs.

    The Beltman also sent a list of my size belt that they have being discounted to about half off. They are belts ordered and canceled or wholesale deals that left extras. It's only 5 and 1 are oddballs and 2 are 1 1/4" but I need a 1 1/4" so I'm going to buy at least one of them.

    He's great to deal with. I emailed after I realized my email had changed since I ordered and he replied over the weekend letting me know he was shipping mine on Monday. It was right at 2 weeks which is what they say.
