JACKSONVILLE, Florida – Safariland™, a BAE Systems line of business, announced today the introduction of the Bianchi® Model 101 Foldaway™ holster, a brand new design for semiautomatic handguns. This simple, yet innovative holster essentially turns the exterior of a belt into the interior of a holster, allowing for an extremely compact, concealable carry for a handgun.
The Model 101 Foldaway is constructed as a rectangular piece of full grain leather, with dual 1.5″ belt slots, a full leather lining and exterior stitching detail. The user may slide the holster onto the belt loop in the desired location on the hip. As the firearm is holstered, a cutout slot in the leather grips onto the trigger guard to help retain the handgun. This brings the weapon as close to the body as possible by eliminating the normal thickness associated with typical holster designs. When not in use, it can be folded away flat against the body visually fading into the belt and giving no indication that it is a holster.
“This product gives new definition to the term ‘minimalist design’ in holsters,” stated James Dawson, Category Director for Duty Gear products. “Lightweight and inexpensive with a secure handgun fit that’s never before been seen on the market, the Foldaway offers legendary Bianchi innovation at a price for today’s consumer.”
The Model 101 Foldaway is available in tan and black full grain leather in a plain finish to match the wearer’s belt, and is offered on two sizes to fit a variety of medium and large frame semiautomatic firearms including Glock, Colt 1911, S&W and Springfield Armory models. MSRP is $15.25 and it is available today.

Uncle Mike’s® New Reflex Holster is a Perfect Fit for Concealed Carry
Overland Park, Kan. — Uncle Mike’s, a leading provider of shooting accessories for more than 60 years, has introduced the new Reflex Holster to provide concealed carry permit holders with a durable, easy to use product that doesn’t require a lot of thought or complicated buttons or straps to operate in the event of an emergency.
The Reflex Holster securely retains the firearm using Integrated Retention Technology (I.R.T.), which features a retention lug on the outer wall of the holster in combination with a press arm on the body side of the holster. The shooter is able to get a full and secure grip on the firearm before they begin to draw. While the I.R.T. secures the firearm in the holster, the technology allows the shooter to easily release the firearm from the holster by griping and turning the mag well of the firearm toward the body.
Studies have shown that fine motor skills diminish quickly in stressful or threatening situations, leaving average gun owners unable to operate holsters with buttons, levers or retention straps. The Reflex Holster’s simple retention system allows users to easily draw the firearm when fine motor function has given way to gross motor skills.
“One of the most important aspects of firearm survival is the relationship between the individual, the holster and the firearm. With the Reflex Holster, Uncle Mike’s has simplified the retrieval process by developing a holster that allows users to react quickly, without hesitation or complicated thought, and perform effectively when their gross motor skills take over,” said Dave Young, Uncle Mike’s consultant and ARMA Training director and founder.
The first model, with a suggested retail price of $38.95, is designed for the Glock 17, 19, 22 and 23.
