To that I would add; buy a better belt than you normally might as well. Get a proper, sturdy 1 1/2" or 1 3/4" (which I use) belt meant to handle a gun. El Paso Saddlery, Simply Rugged, etc. You won't be sorry.as much as i hate to admit it, ive added a little to my love handles since i quit smoking.. lol.. working on it though. i still prefer to carry my 5 inch 1911 inside the waistband. get a good holster and you shouldnt have any problems. while its not as comfortable as outside the pants, its secure and much easier to conceal.
good luck to ya
T'aint no Champion, that's my $340 Rock Island "budget banger"! And yes, it's held quite solidly, never had an issue with looseness or fit. Only real problem I've had is the slide rubbing against the rivets in my jeans and leaving copper marks. Fixed that problem by grinding off the rivets.That Champion Stay pretty secure there rondawg?
