The gun belt and holster that you wear are almost as important as the handgun you carry. The selection of carry gear must be made with deliberation and not merely dictated by the figures on a price tag. Good products can still be had at good prices, but belts and holsters must conform to the gun you plan to carry and the mode you intend to carry it in, be it concealed for self-defense, out in the open for field use or in a duty-type rig for occupations requiring a handgun. Whatever the need or intent, there are plenty of suppliers out there, so without further ado, let’s take a look at a number of top-quality designs—some new and some old favorites—to help you find the best setup for your needs.
