Gunbelt Measurement and Add Ons

A simple and easy guide to accurate gun belt measuring. 

  1. Put on a pair of britches/pants you plan to wear with your gun belt
  2. Have handy any belt that currently fits you. You can even use a piece of string.
  3. Put the belt on and buckle it where you will wear your gun belt Slightly down over your hips in most cases. Remember the gun belt will be supporting another 4 pounds per pistol and holster {about 3 lbs for the pistol; 1 lb for the holster} That weight will drag the belt down. You may want to go another notch tighter in your measuring.
  4. Make note of the most comfortable hole in which the buckle goes through.
  5. Lay the belt on a flat surface and measure from the end of the buckle to the most comfortable hole. See picture below.
  6. Distance from the buckle end to the centre hole of your belt will be the Gunbelt Measurement you supply us with. This is now your gun-belt size.
  7. Generally this measurement should be about 3 to 4 inches larger than your jean size.
