Dennis Badurina of Dragon Leatherworks has branched out into gunbelts, to complement his line of holsters. I received one for review and evaluation last week, and fitted one of my own buckles to it (a nice touch, as it lets you customize your belt to your own satisfaction).
In short, it's a masterpiece. It's stiff as heck, which is precisely what you want to keep your holster where you put it and ensure that nothing moves during the drawstroke. It frequently astonishes me to see someone with a first-class firearm, in a top-notch holster that cost well into three figures, attached to a cheap, crappy belt that allows the combination to flop all over the place. That's like driving a late-model sports car shod with worn-out, no-tread-left tires off an early 1990's Korean economy car. Sooner or later, when you need traction, you're going to come horribly short!
On the basis of Miss D.'s and my previous experience with Dennis' handiwork, and the superb craftsmanship of this belt, his new product line gets my thumbs-up.
