The fullgrain leather holster is available for small-frame revolvers and semiautomatics. “Many pocket holsters look and function more like a bucket, with the handgun simply dropped in and not fitting well,” said James Dawson, category director for Duty Gear products. “We took the pocket design for Bianchi one step further, incorporating its reputation for precisely fit holsters into a good looking and extremely functional design.” The Model 152 has a squared-off design to mimic a wallet, and is available in reverse-out, full-grain leather in plain tan. The holsters, with an MSRP of $29.75, are available for the S&W J-Frame, and the Ruger LCP and LCR. Additional models will be available later this year.
