Thank you.:drinksI can't speak for Dave, but in general, it's usually bad juju to use your pants size to determine your gun belt size. Very often, six XX" in brand XYZ does not fit the same as the same size pants from brand PDQ. I've seen jeans from the same maker have different fits for the what is supposedly the same size.
For the belt, as that should be somewhat constant, use the hole you normally use to buckle your belt without having your rig attached as the base measurement, and depending on manufacturer, use the end of the leather where the buckle attaches, or the buckle itself, as the other measuring point. The pants size usually does not factor into the gun belt measurement.
Dave doesn't measure his belts that way. He needs to talk to Dave specifically.The Beltman has great info on sizing for a gun belt at http://www.thebeltman.net/faq.htm
He also makes great belts, I have 2 of his and they are fantastic.
Already done sir..Thanks.:drinksDave doesn't measure his belts that way. He needs to talk to Dave specifically.
'Bonz, send him a PM/email with your question, or just call him...number is on the website.
Moylan, you're either gonna have to lay off the beer or the candy bars. Bloody candy bars, should be outlawed. Oh wait, they may soon be!So now I either have to try to lose some weight or start buying some bigger pants, and shorts.
Well, I know the short term solution.
I had a really nice, 1"+ leather belt that was noticeably thicker than your average belt and I thought that was good enough. Then I got a real gun belt.I was with my wife the other day on a shopping excursion to Ross (trying to increase my brownie points) and I purchased a nice 1" black leather belt for $10. I was already carrying so I found the right size and now have a new black belt for $10. Granted it's not as pretty as some of the custom belts and probably sagging some (not as much as my old 3/4" belt), but hey the price was right and since it's black, you can't see the retention clips from my CB IWB holster.
