Bianchi 3S inside the waist holster

Bianchi 3S inside the waist holster

I am currently revisiting on an old idea for turning the easily acquired Bianchi 3S inside-the-waist-band holster into a practical snub holster with the addition of only a dollar’s worth of Kydex. To paraphrase a line from my friends at JS …Holsters (http://www.jsholsters.com/) “It’s won’t be pretty but it will work.”

On a slightly related note Saturday’s guest snub book posting from Mike Boyle regarding Pocket Concealment Systems Cross-Draw holster (www.pcsholsters.com) led to a nice conversation with PCS’ owner Michael Meredith. Mr. Meredith and I talked about the commonly ignored elements that make a practical snub holster. Mr. Meredith subsequently shared with me information on an appendix style holster he made up many years ago for some unusual customers. Several of the holster elements that Mr. Meredith described match nicely with some very similar elements Bobby McEachern (www.bobmacs.com) puts into his currently available appendix holsters, one that he co-designed one with EQC trainer South Nark and the other that he co-designed with late and much missed Paul Gomez.

Halleluiah! Christmas is here and Mike LaRocca is finished with my bobbed barrel, rounded butt .22 K-frame. As soon as his shop opens that I am off to pick it up and make a beeline to the range. Thank you Santa!
