can I use this belt with the normal belt ratchet buckle, or does it need to be used only with a precisefit belt buckle?
Hi Brian - you can use that strap on any of our buckles that fits the 1 3/8" strap. You can mix and match to your taste.
Is this stiff enough to use as a gun belt?
Hi Harry - It's not as stiff as our gun belts. Before we came out with our gun belts, many were using it as a gun belt including former 3Gun champion Travis Gibson. We would recommend that you use it with the upgraded buckle that has set screws in the clasp for a stronger reliable hold.
