    Right Belt/Rig for Competition and Range Use

    Hello all,

    I am very new to the shooting world and recently acquired a Glock 17C Gen 3 Austria. I would like to ask for guidance as to what kind of gear specifically a belt rig/setup should I invest in. It will primarily be used for range practice at the moment until I get my shooting skills sharpened, then will be used for Shooting Competition later on. Is a War Belt setup allowed for competition use?

    I was initially looking into some cheap local 2-pc belts and mag pouches, but a friend of mine recommended some tactical set-ups for more flexibility.

    So now, I have my eye on the Ronin Shuto Belt with Inner Belt, 4 pcs T-Rex Arms MARS Pistol Mag Carrier with Tek Lock, T-Rex Arms Ragnarok Holster with Safariland Mid Drop/Ride UBL with QLS Receiver and Fork, and T-Rex Arms Thigh Strap.

    I am female, at about 5'4" height.

    What do you guys think should I get?

    Thank you very much for the advice.

    They used to survey the competitors at the IDPA national match and report what they were using. I haven’t seen a recent report but for years Comp-Tac was by far the most used holster manufacturer.

    I would recommend searching some of the female competitors to see what they’re using for belts and other gear. Team Glock has Michelle Viscusi and Ashley Rheuark and formerly Tori Nonaka. I don’t know if Tori is still competing but there should still be posts about what she used. Gabby Franco is one of my favorite females in the sport she isn’t as accomplished in pistol as the Glock ladies but still an amazing professional marksman who knows what she is doing.

    Thanks MtStream. I have yet to see a Competition Rig setup using a War Belt/Tactical Belt, but I was wondering what are the pros and cons of using a Tactical Setup vs Quick Draw Competition Rig. I want something that has the flexibility for any situational use.

    I do not shoot competition, but do conceal carry. I have about 8 different belts for different occasions, do not discard the thought of getting a couple of setups and wearing what fits the occasion..

    For everyday IWB carry I found these to be very fine belts :

    Hi, Miami...

    Welcome to the Glock.pro forums!

    You mentioned competitive shooting, but don't say what sport you are considering... It makes a difference... I shoot USPSA and SCSA Steel Challenge... Most pistol shooters in both of those competitions use double belts... The stiffer the better... DAA belts are very popular.

    The best thing to do is attend a few matches in your area and see what people are using... Believe me, shooters are always happy to show off their gear!!!

    Welcome to the forum and the shooting world.
    Two recommendations for new competitors; Join Glock Sport Shooting Foundation and visit local matches. It's purpose is to help new shooters that want to try completion shooting. You can see what other shooters use and then decide. Most beginner matches don't require a belt and holster rig for GSSF matches or USPSA steel matches.
    I have found both are very welcoming and helpful to new shooters.

    Hi jb,

    Thank you for the warm welcome! I am glad that this forum is more active than the others. I am not quite familiar yet as to what we have here in the Philippines, but I think it is PPSA. I am seeing double belts being used and quickdraw holster and mag pouches. However, a friend of mine recommended that I do a tactical rig instead for more flexibility. Then another guy that I asked about it mentioned that yes it can be used in competition but people usually "frown at you" if you are not using the typical quick draw setup.

    I am really confused what to get at this point because the setup that I am looking at is quite expensive here.

    Hi Otintx, yeah I might end up later on owning different belts depending on the use... Too bad though that we cannot conceal carry by holstered gun here in the Philippines... We can only conceal carry a gun inside a purse or bag... huhu

    Hi Gaz,

    I think I will do this at the moment and try to look at the rig of other shooters in my area.

    Thank you very much for the warm welcome!

    Enjoy your search, Blade-tech is a good entry level belt and what I started with. As most belts the make many types of holsters and accessories for the belt. The more you hang of the belt the stiffer belt you want.

    It's good info from the other posters above as well.

    Don't be surprised if you end up with multiple belts and holsters as it comes down to personal preference and comfort.
