As I have heard, they make a big difference with comfortable carry, I am in need of a good gun belt. Something sturdy and stylish for edc for use with an iwb holster. I would like to hear what you guys use. I'm looking for information on makers and what to look for with the construction or materials of a quality gun belt. I've read that horsehide is stiffer and wears longer than cowhide. I've also seen some that use internal stiffeners so I'm not sure what would work best for lifelong durability and function. Are there local craftsmen or other retailers in the Portland area who carry a selection? I'd rather go try one on to make sure it fits and feels right instead of ordering online.
