    I have a nylon belt like this one.

    Blackhawk Reinforced Web Duty Belt - X-Large

    It is VERY stiff. Does anyone have any secrets on making this nylon webbing stuff softer or more flexible?

    Thanks.

    You want it stiff to best stabilize your holster. I bet it will loosen up somewhat if you just wear it awhile. Good Luck.

    ^^^^^What he said. The whole point in buying a gun belt is that it will be stiff. If you soften it up it kind of defeats the purpose of spending the extra money on a nice belt.

    it will loosen up a bit after you wear it for a while.

    I have the same one, still pretty stiff, as intended well broken in.

    just wear it.... nothing I ever heard of to do?
