How stiff is the leather on this belt? Can it double as a CCW gun belt holster?
Hi Greg - this is a tough question. Before we started making EDC belts, we had customers buy our products and used them as gun belts. One person that uses our normal belts is Travis Gibson, former 3Gun Champion. He felt it was stiff enough because with the micro adjust system, you can cinch the belt/gun snugly to the body to avoid roll-overs from the belt. We had a detective recently from the Rialto Police Dept. buy the Portofino dress belt as his gun belt. That belt is less stiff than the belt you're looking at. You can see the picture he sent to us on our Instagram account - nexbeltprecisefitgunbelts.
Does this belt show through the buckle like the nylon gun belt design (and enabling a lower-profile buckle thickness)?
Hi Keith - it is the same buckle as used on the Titan gun belts. It just has a different finish. Hope that helps.
