    what kind of pistol belt would you recommend to someone interested in competitive shooting? what is the most common brand and caliber of pistol most used?

    It depends on what you want to shoot. In USPSA most common are Double Alpha, CR speed and Safariland belts. These are dual belt systems with an inner and outer belt. 3 Gun these work, but Safariland is pretty popular. If you want to shoot IDPA, none of the dual belts are legal. Any stiff leather belt will work fine.

    Brand and caliber are very division dependent. Production you see Tangfolio, CZ, Glock, XD, and many others mostly 9mm since you only need 125 power factor. Limited is dominated by double stack 2011 pistols in .40S&W shooting 165 power factor. Open is primarily tricked out hot rodded 2011 pistol in 38 super or 9mm major power factor.
