BIANCHI mODEL 101 FOLDAWAy HOLSTER GUNNYSACK Roy Huntington O kay, this was another one of those, “Aw geez, how come I didn’t think of this?” moments. Hope Bianchi-Sjursen (yup, Big John Bianchi’s daughter) sent me these two samples of their new “Foldaway Holster” after I spotted them in a press release. I couldn’t quite get my head around how they worked. Once I had ‘em in my hand I got it. Even though they only list autos on the “fit” chart, I didn’t see why a J-frame wouldn’t too, and sure enough it did. Hey Hope, list small-frame revolvers on the fit chart, would you? However, if you carry one, you’re on your own since Bianchi didn’t list it. Get it? Essentially, the simple flap uses the outside of your belt as the inside back of the holster pouch. Check out the “reverse” photo to see how it works, and to check out the J-frame and a Springfield XDm in the same fit! The amazing thing is it only takes two “fits” to handle just about any common auto out there, from SIGs to .22SA or who-knows-what-else. Honestly? I went through my gun safe trying every auto I had, from tiny to big and everyone fit in the Size 10 (shown). That’s a Rohrbaugh R9 in the tan one, and a full-sized 1911 in the other. A size 16 handles SIGs and Berettas and I suppose other brawny beasts. It’s now my new favorite holster since it’s minimalist, lightweight, comfortable and actually carries the gun comfortably. And, can you believe it, only $15! Oh, and that belt? It’s from Purdy Gear and doubles as a money belt, with a hidden flap on the rear to stash your cash.
