Just as choice of tires make a difference in driving performance, choice of a belt makes a big difference in carrying a gun with a holster effectively. In fact, the performance of most holsters largely depends on the belt they are used with. A thick and sturdy belt works best with most holsters. Unlike many flimsy belts made out of thin leather with or without a plastic core sandwiched in between, Master’s Holsters leather gun belts are handmade from a single piece of thick and heavy bullhide leather - no plastic inserts, no glueing, no stitching. The thick leather does not stretch or sag even after years of use and ensures that the holster functions as designed.
