Bianchi Introduces PREVADER Concealment Holster at SHOT Show

Saturday, January 19th, 2019

Slim, low-profile design features Pinch retention in a multi-fit open-top holster


ONTARIO, California – Bianchi®, a brand of The Safariland Group, a leading global provider of safety and survivability products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, announced today the release of the Model 4585 Prevader™ Concealment Holster. This ballistic weave model features the exclusive Pinch® Retention Device (PRD™) which secures the holstered firearm by gripping both sides of the trigger guard when the gun is fully seated.

“By incorporating Bianchi’s PRD retention, this model offers a super slim holster body and added security with an instinctive draw,” said James Dawson, category director. “The growing concealed carry market with the demand for quality yet cost-effective holsters with retention capabilities led us to expand upon our hugely popular ballistic weave Evader™ model. The new Prevader holster does just that.”

The Bianchi Prevader holster features a low profile making it highly concealable and comfortable for everyday carry. The internal Pinch Retention Device is formed of a durable high-tech polymer and allows the user to feel when the handgun is fully seated in the holster. The Prevader holster rides high and close to the body for comfort and the open top design has a reinforced opening, making one-handed reholstering easy and efficient.

The Prevader model features a durable trilaminate construction of a 1050-denier ballistic weave exterior, a closed-cell foam center and a nylon lining for a smooth draw. The closed-cell foam allows the holster shape to “set” in the holster providing a confident fit for a variety of pistols. Once the firearm is removed for a day, the holster resumes its natural shape, allowing for a good fit with a different handgun model. The holster attaches to a belt with dual snaps for easy on/off access and fits up to 1.75 in. (45mm) belt widths. The Prevader is offered in three sizes to fit a variety of Glock and S&W M&P models, as well as the Colt Commander, Ruger SR9/SR40 and the FN FNS 9mm, .40. It comes in black and has an MSRP of $38.00.

The Model 4585 Prevader Concealment Holster will be on display at The Safariland Group booth, #12762, throughout SHOT Show 2019 from January 22-25. For more information, please visit

Team Bianchi’s Kenda Lenseigne Wins Big at 2016 CMSA World Championship

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

Lenseigne impresses the crowd once again with a new world record

ONTARIO, Calif. – After setting not one, but two, world records at the 2016 Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association (CMSA) National Championship in May, Team Bianchi’s Kenda Lenseigne added another record to her impressive repertoire at the CMSA World Championship in Amarillo, Texas last weekend. In a world record run, Lenseigne won the Cimarron Eliminator CMSA World Champion Cowgirl title.

As one of Cowboy Mounted Shooting’s most renowned competitors, Lenseigne holds numerous titles and records prior to this victory. She has won this event four times before on her champion horse, Justin, between the years of 2005 and 2014. However, this is Lenseigne’s first World Championship win on her mare, Sparky, since retiring Justin last year.

“This win is incredibly special to me,” said Lenseigne. “I knew I could trust in my equipment to perform perfectly, but it is a big feat to be the World Champion in a first year partnership between rider and horse.”

Lenseigne finished the competition in 10.764 seconds, which was 0.12 seconds faster than the previous world record. Beating out the other 163 competitors entered in this category, Lenseigne ended with the overall fastest time for women.

“We are thrilled to congratulate Kenda and Sparky,” said Scott Carnahan, vice president, Safariland and Bianchi. “We are so proud of their accomplishments together and we thank Kenda for continuing to be an incredible ambassador for our brand and the sport.”

Team Safariland members are an integral part of the company’s product development process by regularly testing Safariland materials and products to ensure design and development. During the championship, Lenseigne utilized her Bianchi exclusive Kenda Lenseigne Signature Series Smokechaser™ Cowboy Holster.

Saturday, October 17th, 2015

ONTARIO, Calif. – Building on the momentum from her wins at the Western U.S. Championship in Las Vegas, Nev., Team Bianchi’s Kenda Lenseigne added another buckle to her collection at the 2015 Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association (CMSA) Arizona State Championship. Finishing the competition almost 1.5 seconds ahead of her nearest rival, she once again led the women’s division and dusted the men’s division, as well.  

“My last two matches have seen a lot of improvements in the competitive package I’m bringing to the sport,” said an elated Lenseigne. “My Bianchi holsters have always been the fastest and best in the business, and now my new horse is proving herself a winner among champions.”

The coming weeks see Lenseigne hitting the pavement to defend her current World Champion title. Her road to the World Championship started with the Lone Star Classic in Vernon, TX on October 9. The following week, fans in Amarillo, Texas will see the fastest single action shooters on horseback compete for the chance to be crowned this year’s World Champion title. 

As one of the Cowboy Mounted Shooting’s most renowned competitors, Lenseigne is a four-time World Champion, two-time Overall National Champion, four-time World Point Champion and she has set 11 world records. As a precursor to her most recent win, Lenseigne clocked the fastest overall time at the CMSA Western United States Championship in August.

Bianchi Concealment Holsters Available for Glock 43

Carry Your Glock 43 Inside the Waist or on the Ankle

ONTARIO, California – Bianchi® announced today the addition of three concealment holster fits for the new Glock 43 handgun. Popular models such as the 100 Professional™, the 100T Professional™ Tuckable and the time-proven 4750 Triad™ are now available to order.

For comfortable deep concealment, Bianchi offers two inside the waistband (IWB) carry holsters for the Glock 43 – the Model 100 Professional™ and the Model 100T Professional™ Tuckable. Both models are constructed of premium high-grade, full grain leather with a suede-lined exterior to provide a non-slip material against the body. The high-cut rear of the holster rides comfortably against the torso and eliminates discomfort associated with sharp-edges. The Model 100T includes a patent-pending C-clip design that has an adjustable cant for a customized draw and allows a shirt to be tucked in as needed.

For ankle carry of Glock 43, Bianchi’s Model 4750 Triad Ankle Holster is a great option. The Triad ankle holster has three unique features – an Achilles arch that keeps the holster in position, a detachable ankle pad for maximum comfort and a compression strap design that pulls the butt of the gun into the calf to keep the firearm securely against the leg.

All models are available now and are now available online at
