Need bloggers to do a review of a handmade gunbelt!Well, look what showed up yesterday:
Yup...holsters is something that lots of folk have, and my rigs tend to be hard to do a good review on, because I love to upscale them and make them eye-candy. Tough for folk in CC-only states...
So, I need testers / reviewers to write their thoughts, (good or bad...I don't send swag for *good* reviews, I send swag for *honest* reviews...) and post reviews.
Ideally, 4 to 6 weeks after you get them, write about them. Sooner if you feel like it is fine. I mean really...its a belt, its built like a brick shithouse, and to be honest its probably a bit overbuilt. Upside is that it'll probably be the last belt you get new for about the next 20 years or so, unless you tend to grow horizontally instead of vertically. ;-)
All my gunbelts are 1.5" wide, double-layered veg tanned leather, with a stitched-in nylon core to keep the belt stiff, prevent stretching, and most importantly, prevent sagging when you've got that 4 pound extended-slide STI in 10MM hanging off your belt. Or that Vaquero. Or any other of the big-bore bludgeons. (You can see my sales page on my website for pictures/particulars.)
This is for belt only...you gotta supply your own buckles.
Boy, howdy, that's a great looking belt. I put a buckle on it (off an old, busted 5.11 belt, actually) and wore it around the house last night, and while it's thick and tough, it wears very well from what I can see. It's also heavy - I'm fairly certain it will make a good melee weapon if needed - and I expect it to last quite a few years.
Here it is next to the 5.11 belt that donated the buckle:
Yeah, there's just a little difference in thickness there, eh?
I'll put up a formal review in a few weeks, after I've had a chance to wear it for a bit and use it to carry a handful of different sized pistols. I'm guessing, based on the thickness and toughness, that it'll stand up to whatever I want to hang off it up to and including a pistol grip shotgun. Everything I've gotten from Dennis has been ridiculously tough and overbuilt, and this certainly seems like no exception.
Full report to come!
That is all.
