    Since I had to order some emergency duty gear and have it shipped overnight I decided to round out the order from my supplier.
    One of the items I decided to try was the above mentioned belt. I have been very leary of getting a belt sight unseen as I had no real idea what to expect.

    On some of the various "Police" boards folks have been raving about the $30.00 Aker belt and I figured the G&G was probably about the same and it cost me almost 1/3 less.

    Actually not all that bad for the price. Probably worth around $30.00-$45.00 over the counter, depending on retail shop or mail order.
    Nice decent peice of leather that has burnished edges, the front is slightly tapered for a dressier look. Chicago screws hold the brass buckle in place (I prefer chrome).The outer layer is a nice leather and the inner layer is synthetic so there is no chance of color bleed. Stitching is nice and even around the edges but is not a contrasting color as these belts are supposed to be more dress than sport and are marketed towards plain clothes and off duty cops.

    The belt is constructed with a Polymer stiffener between the outer layer and the lining layer. This makes the belt very stiff laterally it will not roll at all. I am currently carrying a full size 1911 using this belt and it is comfortable.

    This is by no means a custom belt but it is a very decent belt for everyday use that you can beat and not worry that you scratched an expensive custom made belt.

    Great review. I just got a Gould and Goodrich double mag paddle carrier for IDPA and CCW. It is VERY high quality for only $26.95. Their stuff is made here in NC.

    When ordering a G&G mag pouch for a Steyr 9mm, which weapon choice should I give? Obviously they don't make one specifically for Steyr pistols.

    I do seem to recall that their mag pouches fit a variety of magazines.

    I'm looking at the package my G&G Gold Line Black Leather Double Magazine Case (Paddle model) came in and it is model B831-4. It is the one that reads "Fits BERETTA Cougar (all); GLOCK 17, 19, 21, 22, 23, 26, 27, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36; H&K USP 9, .357, .40, .45 (all); KIMBER Polymer; PARA-ORDNANCE P10, P12, P13, P14, P15, P16 (all); S&W Sigma (all EXCEPT .380)"

    Mine was $25.49 + tax from a local police supply store. It has 2 adjustment screws for tension and is very nice leather. The paddle is a little small compared to Fobus and Uncle Mike's paddles but it works perfectly for IDPA matches.

    DT Distributors has G&G Gold Line single mag pouches (belt or paddle) on sale for $17.95

    I sent them a note with my order saying that the Steyr Mags I was using are the same dimension as S&W Sigma 9mm mags. I see that the Sigma is last...but not least...on the list.

    I seem to recal that G&G mag carriers are made to fit:

    1. single stack 1911 mags
    2. double stack 9mm/.40/.357Sig mags
    3. double stack .45/10mm mags

    I just wanted to make sure.



    JNG thanks for your post. :)

    Very cool, do you have a link to DT Distributors?

    Also, I tried the G&G double-column mag pouches that started their compatibility list with "BERETTA 92..." and these DO NOT FIT, they are too small. Weird, I thought the 92 and Cougar were the same, but then I know that the Cougar does come in .45 so perhaps that is why they are wider.

    CRAP! I also told them I I was pretty sure a Steyr mag was the same size as a Beretta 92 mag!

    I guess I'm gonna need to call them tomorrow.

    Very close to the Walther P99 magazines also.
    Some G&G magazine pouches have a a tension screw adjustment (my single stack paddle with cuff case does).

    I think they make the magazine cases to be a bit more generic.
