    I can find many many holsters for my S&W 4013. What I can not find is a good 2" belt Leather or synthetic. That does not fold or turn over in short order. I have out grown my original Belt that was very thick with a fiberglass reenforcement. It is looking very worn also. For the life of me, short of a heavy duty service belt. I can not find anything????

    go to southforkholsters.com. I have bought several holsters from this guy and each has been great. He has several belts available too. I met him on a 1911 forum and he does good work. John

    You don't say whether you're looking for a pants belt or an outside-the-pants belt, but the most durable pants belts I've ever found (and I've been wearing one since I found them) is the Instructor Belt from The Wilderness.

    Good people, too.

    I prefer a 1/4" very thick & heavy 1.5"-wide belt, two layers stitched together, the more stitching the stiffer. You may find that a 2" won't fit in any of your pants or holster loops. I do have some lighter single-layer 1.5" belts by Bianchi & others for wear with nicer clothes, but a very thick 1.5" belt will do what you need, with a proper holster. My current favorite belt is by Animal Jack Leather of Medford, OR, 541-301-8653. He attends western OR & WA gunshows. Phil E
