    Big Box Store Belts VS a Hanks Belt

    • 1 min read

    When it comes to your belt once you start using it for CCW use it becomes more than something to just hold you pants up. Now it is a critical piece of gear that is essential to make sure you are practicing safe and responsible Concealed Carry. It needs to support your Firearm securely, safely, and without any discomfort throughout the day. You should pretty much forget your firearm is there until you need it.

    Like many of you, I have spent countless hours shopping with the better half in various Malls, outlets, and big box stores. Of course, I always have to check out the belts, and I have yet to find a USA Made belt, let alone one that I could recommend for responsible CCW use. Now to be fair, I have seen some nice looking belts, but they were not designed for heavy duty use. They are more fashion, but the fact remains they are not a proper belt to support your weapon like a purpose built Gun Belt.

    You have invested a lot in acquiring your CCW permit, your firearm, and gear. Now your belt has become a critical component for practicing responsible Concealed Carry. So head on over to and get yourself a heavy duty Full Grain Leather Belt purpose built for CCW use. All our belts are also USA Made, and this is important to many people.

    A chain is only as strong as its weakest link...don't let that weak link be your belt!
