    Hi, y'all.

    I've decided to buy a Wilderness Tactical Frequent Flyer belt in 1 1/4". My carry gun will be either a S&W 3" K-frame or a Glock 17. Do any of you know if the 3-stitch is sufficient or do I need to get the 5-stitch? I don't really want the extra stiffness of the 5-stitch unless it's necessary.

    BTW, I just got my first real gun belt from Beltman, and all of you were right. A dedicated gunbelt is a necessity.

    Thanks.

    I have a Bison Design which is a carbon copy of the 3-stitch Wilderness. It is noticeably more limber than my 5-stitch Wilderness, but is ample for guns the size you say.

    I like the stiffness of the 5 stitch. I've never felt uncomfortable wearing it.

    Thanks for the replies, I'll probably give the 5-stitch a try.

    I've been wearing the 3-stitch for years and have never had a problem with support.
