New Bianchi M&P Shield Holsters at the 2017 NRA Annual Meeting
Bianchi®, a brand of The Safariland Group, today announced the availability of several new gun fits among their popular and newest inside waistband (IWB) holsters, meeting a steady growing consumer demand. The Bianchi Models 6 Waistband, 100 Professional, 100T Professional Tuckable, 135 Suppression, 145 Subdue and 155 Subversion are now offered for the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield. The holsters will be on display at The Safariland Group booth #2142 at the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, April 27-30 in Atlanta.
“As we watch trends and growth curves for new guns on the market we incorporate these trends into our product planning,” said James Dawson, category director, Safariland Duty Gear. “With the growing demand for IWB holsters, it was a logical extension to add these gun fits to these six inside waistband models. With some models, like the Model 6, we’ve had them for years, and they’re now updated for these firearms. The Subdue and Subversion are new offerings that are gaining a lot of traction right now with their enhanced comfort features and a lower profile suitable for everyday use.”
The Bianchi Models 6, 100, 100T, 135, 145 and 155 all feature an inside waistband (IWB) design, with narrow profiles for optimal concealment. Each of the models provide specific features to address important user requirements. The Model 100 Professional and 100T Professional Tuckable offer a comfortable, deep concealment design with a suede, non-slip exterior next to the body. The 100T meets the demand for an IWB holster that can be worn with a shirt tucked in.
Alternatively, Models 135 Suppression (also tuckable), 145 Subdue and the 155 Subversion all have antibacterial and antimicrobial foam padding on the liner, which provides comfort and helps to prevent the accumulation of germs and odors against the body.
All are constructed with high quality full grain leather and/or suede leather depending on the model and are available in plain finish, Tan or Black, with the exception of the 145 and 155 offered in Black only and the Model 6 in Rust suede only. Available now.
