Looks like you need a new belt Gary. I HIGHLY recommend Relentless Tactical. Have had one of their belts for at least 3 years and you can't tell it's been worn except for the indents where the buckle sets on the hole.

OK, here goes.

Spyderco Para 3 (my Sheeple blade) right front pocket
Spyderco PM2 (cause I like it and, well I just like it) front left pocket
Emerson CQC 15 (INSIDE front right pocket. Never comes out unless "Needed")
Yeah I know, but I LIKE knives and I have done this so long that I feel naked without them.

One of three
Sig Sauer P239 40S&W in a Milt sparks VM2 IWB holster (it is NICE) with two spare mags In a Bianchi dual single stack mag holder
Ruger SR1911cmd 45acp in a Galco V-Hawk IWB or a cheapie belt rig with 2 10 round mags in a Bianchi dual single stack mag holder
SCCY CPX-2 9mm in my Fatboy with 1 10 round mag reload. If on my belt a Tagua holster and 2 reloads in a Bianchi dual stack mag holder
I SOMETIMES carry my Ruger LC-9 with the Crimson Trace Laser guard and 2 reloads in my Fatboy. If on my belt it will be in a TAGUA with 2 spare mags.
Standard keys, phone and a Maratac 3aaa flashlight is ALWAYS in my pocket. Oh and I carry a Fenix 1aa on my Fatboy.
I also carry assorted meds for Patty and I, including her Epi pen (that she has had to use twice) because her throat started swelling shut. Oh and an assortment of bandaids plus an EZ-Lap model M Sharpener.

I definitely need a new belt. I've considered MagPul's El Original, The Beltman, TT Gunleather, and others.

Before I spend $100 on a belt I want to make sure its the correct choice.

The one I mentioned is quite a bit less than the amount you mentioned.

As you will see, they have more than one style. They have the plain, steel core and basket weave.

Gary,. I am sure that your Mad Max holster is nice, I have a Galco V-Hawk for mine, but for the money you might want to consider a custom house for your Wilson. I have a custom made Milt Sparks VM2 that is really nice for my Sig and the cost is not really that much more than a "mass produced" holster. Of course you will have to wait, but to me the wait was worth it. Oh and I HIGHLY recommend Horse Hide.

Randy,
I've had a couple of VM2 and they are excellent quality holsters. I wanted to try a DeSantis MadMax as I found them for $55 delivered. I was very pleased with the holster at first, but it has started to stretch on me. The holster will no longer retain a 1911 if I turn it upside down. I'll likely order a VM2 and use the MadMax for range / training / inclement weather (wherein I wouldn't want my Milt Sparks getting soaked).

When I got my V-hawk (Galco) I paid 107 for it on amazon. My VM2 made out of Horse Hide ran me I think 147. So for 40 dollars more I got a holster that isn't really prone to stretching (my V-hawk has some). I also got the magnetic closures and man are they nice. If you do go Milt Sparks again, check the magnetic snaps out. I REALLY like the holster I got for my Sig. My next holster purchase will be the same thing as I got for my Sig. Maroon body with black snap straps. I've had it about 3 year now and it is still as good as new. Nope I only wear it about a week out of every month (I alternate carry/guns) but even with this it gets a fair amount of carry. When I am wearing it I usually average a 12-16 hour day.
