Welcome to the shop!

Welcome to Zach's Gun Belts, the original truly custom gun belt shop. Your belts come from a family owned custom leather shop tucked away in a garage in historic Athens, Georgia. No fluff here in this shop. Each gun belt is custom made to order to your specifications. I carefully select the finest leather from the most reputable tanneries in the country guaranteeing you a quality product every time. The majority of the leather I work with is from American Leather Direct and Hermann Oak. The leather that comes from these tanneries is consistent and clean. Although, since it is leather and 100% natural, sometimes you will find slight imperfections.
