    Here's my dilemma. I'm a fan of leather gun holsters and leather belts. The problem is I'm also a collector and wearer of brass belt buckles. The current belt I have now is nice and I can unscrew a small screw and switch out the buckle. The problem is with that belt, it's not quite a gun belt and it causes the OWB holster I have to sag out a little bit. I would switch to IWB holsters, but I'm really not a fan since I'm a slim guy and I'd have to either lose weight or start buying a bunch of slightly bigger pants to compensate.

    My question, does anyone out there mass produce or even custom make a leather gun belt where the buckle is interchangeable? Thanks for any input.

    Just about every belt maker. They use what are called "Chicago screws".

    Name your favorite holster maker, Milt Sparks, Mitch Rosen, Tucker, High Noon, Kramer, etc., they all use Chicago screws for their belts.

    I bought my belt from "The Cowboy and Shooter's Supply" and it has snap buttons to change out the buckle.

    Every belt I make has Chicago Screws, I don't trust snaps!
