First Look: Nextbelt Frances EDC Gun Belt

posted on August 23, 2020

Nexbelt, known as the belt with no holes, recently introduced its new Frances EDC Gun Belt, designed especially for women. The ratchet-style buckle of the Frances EDC Gun Belt is a stylish take on the traditional equestrian D ring and features a 1⅜-inch smooth leather strap in either Black or Brown. The strap backing is made of nylon to resist sweat from penetrating the outer belt surface, and fits up to a 50-inch waist.

Nexbelt’s EDC Gun Belts can secure your defensive gear and still look good while doing so. Whether you are dressed to impress or to train on the range, there is a Nexbelt that is right for you. As an added bonus, all the EDC Gun Belts have a stiffener in the strap to prevent belt sag or rollover when carrying your firearm.

Nexbelt belts feature a unique PreciseFit ratcheting system that allows the wearer to adjust his or her belt in ¼-inch increments instead of the normal 1-inch adjustment of a traditional belt with a pin/buckle system. This ability to fine-tune a belt in ¼-inch increments not only provides unprecedented comfort, but is also important for people who carry a firearm on a regular basis. The PreciseFit ratcheting system gives you just the right amount of tension to safely secure your firearm, and the ability to quickly switch from an IWB holster to an OWB holster is useful. Nexbelt’s EDC Gun Belts are great for light duty tactical or everyday carry and are much more comfortable than a normal rigger belt.

MSRP on Nexbelt Gun Belts varies by model. More information on these belts and other products from Nexbelt is available at

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.
