Question.
I carry an LC9s Pro and an 9e in Alien Gear IWB 3.0 tucks. Going to be going for the mag holders when they release next month as well. The question, is the 14 well up to this task or should I get the 18?

Allenbepro ... The 14 ounce should be fine with the lighter pistols you've listed. I opted to go with the 18 ounce due to my carry rotation which includes two steel frame pistols that each weight well over 3 pounds when loaded.

Looks like a fine belt. How is the adjustment on this belt?
I'm average size with a 34-36 waist, but depending on the belt adjustment hole location, (some are spaced further apart than others) I always find myself punching another hole with a drill bit to get the belt to fit properly. Thanks for resurrecting the thread, I was looking for a belt

robistro ... I can't speak for your situation, but the holes on the Bigfoot allow for proper adjustment for me. One of the benefits of the steel core is that I can wear it one hole looser than I wore my previous belt and it still supports without sagging. I find this much more comfortable .

Is the finish on the black buckle pretty durable?

It's proven very durable. I've been wearing it daily for going on 5 months and the buckle as well as the leather is in great shape

Thanks BuckJM53. I was on the fence if I wanted to spend the extra $ or if it was going to be overkill going to the 18. Thanks for the advice. I will be ordering tonight.

Great endorsement Buck. Good enough for me. I know where I'll get my carry belt now when I get my CCW permit.

Thank you for resurrecting this thread.

I, too, am in need of new belts.

So I ordered last night. Got the e-mail saying it shipped today. Now it's up to the post office. I don't have the best of luck with things shipped USPS. Hopefully I see it in 2-3 days. I will post up when I get it.
