My wife got me a Beltman belt for my birthday this summer. Because I'm retired and mostly live in shorts and a t-shirt, especially in toasty Texas, I'm used to pocket carrying or using a paddle holster ... when I got my first holster, for my Smith 637, I was amazing at how much easier it is to conceal the gun as opposed to the paddle I was using, and how the weight of the gun, light as it is, feels far lower with a sturdy belt distributing the weight than with the paddle ... I'm not going to convert completely, especially when I'm home and pocket carry makes so much sense ... but I'm sold on gunbelts now ... incidently, mine used to part of a cow and it cost -- I think -- about $70 ...
