I usually wear my handguns in a holster on the belt that holds up my pants. For concealed carry, if the belt is involved, it is the trouser/skirt belt. Out here in the country, I open carry most of the time. I end up not carrying when I am working around the place because it is annoying and time-consuming to pull the belt out, remove the holster, find a place to put things, hook the belt back up, and do whatever it was I needed the firearm off to do then do all that in reverse.
A gun belt solves that problem, especially one with a quick-release buckle. I have used a leather cartridge belt for my Single-Six and the High Standard that preceded it since about 1975 – that’s not a joke. It’s the same belt. It’s showing a little wear, but I have taken care of it, and it still does the job. The other day I bought a new .22LR auto handgun – the S&W Victory. I think it is the first Smith and Wesson, I have ever owned. I know it’s the only one I have now. I plan to do a review on it soon.
Yes, I really needed it. I know.
Anyway, I got an Uncle Mike’s holster that it sort of fits. Since it is a fairly new model, there aren’t a lot of choices. I decided to buy a cheap gun belt at the same time. I don’t know what brand the belt is, and it doesn’t matter. I adjust it to where I want to wear it on my waist by a Velcro hook patch on the long end. It runs through half the buckle so you have a loop that attaches inside. The belt is wide and holds the holster tightly in place. The buckle is one of the male/female arrangements that just snaps together. Once the length is adjusted, it’s just a matter of snapping it around my waist, and everything is where it is supposed to be.
If I need to take the rig off to do something with a piece of equipment, I unbuckle, buckle it around the tractor steering wheel , the ATV handle bar, or some other convenient location until I am ready to put it back on. I am thinking about getting a couple more for other holsters and handguns.
