When I ordered the belt It was being presented without the grommets. So when I opened the package & saw it, I was kinda pissed. Mad

Luckily with a little time & elbow grease, I was able to make it work. Not bad for only $7 bucks

Absolutely, and now people can think of that as an option if they want or can't find a better belt.

There are a few vendors that sell them without, but I do not think they are cheaper than 7$. Really a smart way to get the right look at the right price.

Watch out buying those cheap belts though. I bought a leather belt once for cheap on Ebay with the right holes and everything. Thought I was getting a good bargain. It was less then 15 with postage I think. Anyway it creased and fell apart after a few troops. Thin cheap leather. Finally went here and got a very nice one at a decent price. Nice and sturdy. http://www.beltoutlet.com/threholbridj.html

I found the boots in Hollywood, at a movie studio prop liquidation warehouse. Only $80 if you can believe that. Mr. Green

If you break the gun down to all metal you can use Gun-kote to get a bit more authentic gun look... something to think about. Its easy to use and really does have a nice finish.
