Having a good belt really does make a world of difference. I use an Aker B21. They're relatively inexpensive (~$50), and they don't scream "GUNBELT!" Given my normal mode of dress (which ordinarily includes a blazer even for casual wear), black nylon "duty gear" or the like just doesn't work for me. The Aker was a very good alternative. After about 1.5 years with it, I have no complaints.
A gunfight is not the time to learn new skills.
If you ever have a real need for more than a couple of magazines, your problem is not a shortage of magazines. It's a shortage of people on your side of the argument. -- Art Eatman
