    My buddy is hunting a gun belt. He has never used a gun belt always tried to use a regular belt and it rolls under. Here's the catch he has 60" waist I use an aker but they only go 48" and will he still have problems with it "rolling under" I guess an 1 1/2" on 60 " would be different than on 38" Any ideas Yes it really is my friend not me

    http://www.banderagunleather.com/ I use a 1-3/4" Beltster every day to hold up my pants and carry my 1911. Best thing I've ever bought. I have no idea where he gets leather this thick and tough. I'm a 54" waist.

    The BeltMan goes that big.
    This fatty is happy with his beltman belt, I'm at 48-50, your friend might want to go all the way and get either horsehide or a 13/4'' for the added stiffness.

    That made me laugh like mad. I believe you but saying that is just hilarious to me for some reason. :D

    Healthy waist to height ratio is about 50%. I hope your friend is about 10 foot tall.

    A waist size >40 inches (35" females) is considered a significant health risk... this guy shouldn't buy green bananas much less the expense of 60 inches of good leather. Try walking a few miles with your friend to help him shed a few pounds... if he can't walk that far he doesn't need a holster.

    Speculating about a stranger's health needs is hardly the topic, and hardly high road.

    Beltman would be a good choice:

    So if your friend slims down in the future, he doesn't have to buy a whole new belt.

    The Wilderness Original Instructor Belt might be another option. I'm not 100% sure it'd be stiff enough, even with the CSM liner, but it'd be about half the price of 60" of leather.

    We need all the "pro gun" people we can get so keeping them healthy or encouraging them to become so with subtle hints is a very high road thing to do.

    You want to lose your buddy, follow this advice. I'm a fat guy, and I feel like I know a bit about this subject. Nothing worse than somebody skinny reminding you that you don't measure up to their yardstick.

    If he brings it up, encourage him. Otherwise, assume he's an adult and has had an earful from almost everybody else in his life. You don't need to pile on.
