Oh, that makes it okay then.
I’d make sure he’s driving with you in the car when transporting through the state just so you can put him on the spot if you’re ever pulled over and he can do the explaining for you.
I go one size up on pants - I've been buying a size large to accommodate. Buy a belt a size or 2 large as well - I use a Hanks Stitched Gunner belt - it's leather, and stiffer so it definitely holds holsters via clips properly. Hanks says go 2 sizes larger for CCW... I agree.
I assume these are the 5.11 leather belts? I just bought a 5.11 nylon belt, thinking it might be useful for casual summer carry. It's fine as a belt, but it's pretty flimsy--no real resistance to twisting or bending.
It was inexpensive enough that I may keep it as a belt, but I don't see it being useful as a gun belt.
