Bear Creek Holsters Belts w/Chicago Screws

A good solid belt makes a big difference when carrying a gun.

If you buy a holster and use a cheap thin belt, it may not be comfortable or secure your holster very well. Also it is likely not going to hold up as well as a good strong belt.

Bear Creek Holsters offers a well-constructed belt that can be used for carrying a gun (as well as other gear) or just for everyday casual use. Even if not carrying a gun, they look great and can be used even when you get “dressed up”! This is not your big box store belt. Our belts are built tough and built to last, but look great at the same time.

Bear Creek Holster Belt Construction

The Bear Creek belts are constructed of two layers of bull hide. The top layer is dip dyed in high grade professional oil dye and the bottom layer (body side) is left natural. The two layers are glued together and then sewn together with heavy bonded nylon thread. Bear Creek Holsters uses Black thread on all belts. The two layers along with the heavy stitching makes a good stiff belt that can be used for carrying a gun In Waist Band (IWB) or Outer Waist Band (OWB). After the belt is constructed, it is very slightly under ¼ of inch thick. This helps eliminate or significantly minimize sagging in the belt as well as stretching. Single layer belts have a tendency to sag or stretch with use and especially if you are carrying a firearm or other gear.

Your belt is hand buffed and the edges are rounded, sanded and burnished to a smooth finish. The edges are also sealed with an edge dye and then buffed to make the belt look and work great. The entire belt is sealed with a leather sealer to give it a great look. The belt keeper is hand sewn with the same heavy duty nylon thread, not stapled like some belts.

We punch 7 holes in your belt. The center hole is the measurement you give us. See how to measure an existing belt below! Then 3 holes are punched on either side of the center hole. These holes are ¾ of an inch apart, which allows for adjustment. If you prefer 5 holes 1 inch apart or in any other combination, just let us know when you order.

For some larger size belts, excellent top grade cow hide is used and you get the same quality belt.

How to Measure for a Bear Creek Holster Belt

Take an existing belt and find the hole you most commonly use. If you wear with a gun, make sure you have the gun on when you are determining which hole is most commonly used. Then remove your belt and lay it on a flat surface. Measure from the inside of the buckle end to the hole most commonly used. See the picture below to see how to measure your existing belt.

YOU MUST MEASURE THIS WAY. We cannot exchange your belt if you measure incorrectly.

Bear Creek Holsters expected delivery time is approximately 3-4 weeks!

Some holsters may be completed a little sooner depending on the gun and construction requirements. If you call in your order, I should be able to give a little better estimate on the delivery time after we discuss.

Delivery times are approximate and can change and are not guaranteed. We build our holsters one at a time to assure you receive a quality product. Stay tuned for our online shopping cart, where we will have an inventory of holsters/products that available for immediate purchase and shipping. If you can't wait I understand and you may need to inquire elsewhere.

Important Notice-Please Read Prior to Using Bear Creek Metal Works, Inc.

These warnings should be read prior to the use or purchase of Bear Creek Metal Works, Inc. products. All firearms are potentially dangerous weapons. Firearms should be kept out of the reach of children. Use of a handgun under any conditions may be dangerous. Serious personal injury or even death could occur without proper training in the safe handling of firearms by an accredited firearms safety course. No person should handle any firearm unless such person has successfully passed an accredited firearms safety program. Great care should be used when handling, storing or transporting firearms or when placing or removing a handgun from your Bear Creek Metal Works, Inc. holster. We strongly recommend a regular practice routine, with an unloaded firearm, be utilized to assure the continued capabilities of both product and user.

Never place a loaded handgun in a holster without first testing, in an unloaded condition (double-check to make sure the chamber is empty), for proper fit with the handgun. Bear Creek Metal Works, Inc. holsters are designed to fit factory equipped handguns. The use of trigger shoes or grip adapters or any modifications to the handgun may cause improper holster fit and accidental discharge. All Bear Creek Metal Works, Inc. holsters are designed and are made for specific handguns. DO NOT ALTER YOUR BEAR CREEK METAL WORKS, INC. HOLSTER IN ANY WAY, INCLUDING ANY SAFETY DEVICE INCORPORATED IN ANY BEAR CREEK METAL WORKS, INC. PRODUCT TO ACCOMMODATE HANDGUNS OR OTHER EQUIPMENT FOR WHICH THE BEAR CREEK METAL WORKS, INC. PRODUCT WAS NOT DESIGNED OR INTENDED.

Holsters are made to fit for specific handguns. However, continual changes will occur due to the number of handgun makes and models available on the market. Bear Creek Metal Works, Inc. will not be responsible for typographical and other human errors that can and do occur. It is the user’s responsibility to personally check for holster handgun compatibility using actual products. It is also the user’s responsibility to regularly check the holster and its hardware for proper fit and function. Although Bear Creek Metal Works, Inc. attempts to fit the most current model handguns, manufacturers of handguns constantly update their product specifications. Slight manufacturing changes in a handgun model can affect the proper and safe fit of your handgun and holster. Bear Creek Metal Works, Inc. will not be responsible for such changes or for typographical or other human errors, which can and do occur despite diligent efforts. Should any Bear Creek Metal Works, Inc. product become worn, loose, broken, defective or ill-fitting, or if in your opinion is unsafe, cease use immediately.

Carrying any handgun with a live cartridge in the chamber immediately in front of the firing pin may cause an accidental discharge. Single action revolvers and some semi-automatic pistols should be carried with the hammer or firing pin resting on an empty chamber. Bear Creek Metal Works, Inc. holsters that are “open top” (no safety strap and no thumbreak) are designed to carry in all safe “conditions of carry” as specified by the firearm manufacturer.

It is the user’s responsibility to exercise extreme caution when handling or carrying any handgun and to assume at all times that the gun is loaded. Do not attempt to cock a handgun while it is in the holster. Cocking the handgun while holstered can cause damage to the holster, gun, or both and may cause an accidental discharge. For information on how to safely carry your particular handgun, please refer to your handgun manufacturer’s safety and instruction manual.

You must be certain that your gun is securely seated in the holster each time you holster your firearm before removing your hand from the grip. Firearms must snugly fit in holsters to guard against accidental loss of the handgun. However, a snug fit may cause the slide to go out of battery when holstering. Therefore, you should always place your thumb on the back of the slide to insure that the slide does not go out of battery while holstering. Never place your hand in front of the firearm barrel while trying to holster or un-holster your firearm.

Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot. Keep fingers off the trigger and out of the trigger guard when drawing or replacing the handgun in the holster. This is where a good practice routine, with an unloaded firearm, is essential.

Always make sure your gun is fully seated in the holster. During vigorous physical activity, including running, you should not rely on your holster’s retention capabilities; the gun should be held in place with your hand to prevent the gun from falling out of the holster.

Claims for returns or exchanges must be made within ten days of receiving the product. No returns will be accepted without prior authorization from Bear Creek Metal Works, Inc. Return shipping is at the buyers expense and item(s) may be subject to a 20% restocking charge, any refunds will not include shipping and handling.
