Where is a good place to buy thick, heavy-duty elastic of the kind from which belly bands are sewn?

If you want to get hands on to compare a craft store (like a Hobby Lobby or Joann Fabrics) locally or sewing department at local Walmart (Walmart is spotty for quality of goods & service of course).

My significant other does a lot of sewing/crafting projects, & sells stuff at craft shows.

So I've been chauffeur more than once to such locations, "it's just take a minute"

The non Walmart suggestions though will generally have fair number of staff that know what they are doing.

You could always say your making a passport wallet belt or something like that if you don't want to mention CCW but want to solicit advice.

Slightly off-topic, Midway has a new elastic-and-velcro bellyband holster for $18: called the Peace Keeper Concealed Carry Belly Band Holster.

I went to a Joann Fabrics today. The elastic they had was much flatter/thinner, with much less resistance to stretching as compared with, say, a Galco belly band. I think that's made of a type of elastic that's more commonly used in medical / surgical support products. But I don't know where manufacturers of such products get their raw material.

Take a look at Elastic Cord and Webbing, Inc. (theecwcorp is the website). Their woven material might meet your requirements. You can also search online for industrial strength elastic.

For one of my projects, I went to a local fabric store and asked for the strongest thread they sold. The thread the store owner recommended was for upholstery.

If Charlie's suggestion doesn't pan out, maybe look into scuba gear/dive suits?

I believe at least some types of dive suits are heavy duty but stretchable.

I knew a guy, medically retired LEO, that used to make a type of belly and but he's no longer with us.

Never thought to ask him where he sourced materials.

English holster maker Andy Arratoonian used to offer a velcro/'surgical elastic' deep concealment system called the TJM. He says on his website he had to stop making it because he could no longer find a source for the elastic. FWIW.

So, if I have to pay for a pre-made belly band even though I'm going to sew my own attachments, which is the best one to buy? I'm thinking about both comfort and the ability to support a very heavy gun.

I'd like to know how things work out, if you find type of elastic you need or if you give up and buy a holster.

One of Tom Givens' instructors has used the Gould and Goodrich bands as a base for customization. I believe there's mention of it in the March Rangemaster newsletter
