That’s a nice Ruger SR9c you have there.
1 have 4 of them. 2 leather and 2 nylon . I match them with Vedder Holsters for whatever firearm I’m carrying for the day.
I have two other ratcheting belts and the day came when my SIG 9mm carry came off of the belt: completely. They are just fine for a everyday wear but NOT for EDC. Been wearing my NEXBELT for 3 weeks now and will never (ever!) wear anything else. Period.
Welcome to the group @Michael321! Are you sporting the web version or the leather?
The more I hear about this belt, the more I want one.
The leather; the one that looks like a normal buckle (but is so not). The way the way the “buckle “ is connected to the leather is with SS set screws - not coming apart. This is now my idea of a Gun belt.
I got the USCCA branded Nexbelt. It didn’t come with all of the screws. The USCCA branded plate came off of the buckle. I broke two scalpels trying to trim the belt down to size (the blades shot off with impressive velocity). It’s falling apart, and every time I fasten it, the buckle tries to come off.
This all sounds very negative, but the thing works, and works well. I had some unexpected expenses recently, but when I get caught back up, a new Nexbelt is on my list of items to obtain.
I have two of them. They are ok for slacks and a fairly light handgun but I didn’t find them adequate for my heavier guns or my jeans.
I wear either Carhartt Jeans or 5.11 “tactical pants” most of the time.
These are the belts I wear most of the time now.
Very practical, extremely comfortable, never rolls or stretches and will support and properly distribute a lot of weight. They also help me a lot support wise for my lower back issues.
Ok, here’s that deer season report. The Nexbelt handled all that’s weight, without any problems. To recap it was
A Ruger GP100, 6 inch
A Buck 110 Hunter
Worn while walking, climbing, sitting, walking some more, and squatting while shooting a 12 gauge slug gun.
I wear the web style Nexbelt and love it. Very secure and holds my Glock 19 or my Smith and Wesson M&P with no problems. I love the ratchet style, very easy to get the perfect tightness.
What about the rest of the deer season report, @45IPAC? Will there be venison in your freezer soon?
Not yet. Somehow in the last few weeks, the front sight was knocked loose on my shotgun. 2nd season is in a week and a half, and I’ve spotted a big 8 pointer that ran through dads cattle fence. I feel it is my duty, to end his reign of terror.
@45IPAC I’m thinking you need to spray paint “COW” on Bambi now Chet but I know it’s private land
Hey , if a 104 year old lady can do it, so can you.
Well, there are cows in the property also. But they’re black. I’ll just shoot the brown thingys.
Only the Deer’s nothing more.
This thread has convinced me… and after 3 weeks of looking at the posts I’ve decided to buy… KORE
… but only because of the buckle.
Both Companies make great EDC belts, they are almost identical, so I’ve chosen more elegant which perfectly fit my pants design.
