With all the chaos in the world (and even more now with corona), Feeling like I need to upgrade my setup this month. Right now I cc Glock19, iwb with Kore 1.5" tactical belt (my favorite belt) Want to look at a new holster and the new kore 1.75" garrison belt. Holds more mags and gear. So I wanted some feedback on any new holsters folks have tried or would recommend that wil work with my glock and 1.75" belt?

For leather holsters I really love the Milt Spark holsters especially the VMII line which is my exclusive holster for 1911's. Lately I've made the switch to a M&P in a Tier 1 Concealed holster (my first AIWB) Axis Elite. Its taken some time to get used to carrying in that position but its getting better lately.

Since my last post I’ve clearly had a lot of time on my hands at home to do my research and order my new setup- so I
went back to kore and picked up their new garrison belt. I measured it and it really is a full 1.75 inches wide as the company states. Same ratchet system as other belts which I am familiar with an really like.

Thanks for the recommendations on holsters- I went with the KINGTUK IWB and loaded up the belt- the Garrison could handle the holster and with the wider belt I can now carry more mags and a knife now. My wife thinks it’s a bit crazy to see all this loaded up and doubts it can hold the weight but I showed her how to adjust the belt tighter to my waist for support.

First impressions having just tried it out for the day around the house and yard is that its a beast. next month if this damn lockdown is lifted after I test this thing out for any of you who are interested.

Milt Sparks makes some beautiful stuff. I had a shark skin belt from them that I loved, wore every day for 10 years, then somehow LOST. How do you lose the belt you wear every day?!

That's a good looking belt. A couple years ago I had a good month so I sprang for a Ronin Task Force belt (primarily for classes and such). I still haven't worn the thing as I haven't found pants that will fit a 2" belt. I know there out there, I just need to look for some and place an order. Maybe I'll start a new thread :)
