The New Easy-to-Conceal OWB Solis Holster from Safariland

Safariland is probably most well known for catering almost exclusively to the Law Enforcement and Military market. However, it’s become clear in recent times that Safariland is taking an increased interest in providing everyday customers with products more suited to their lifestyle with firearms. That’s why Safariland is excited to announce their newest OWB holster – the easy-to-conceal Solis. I’ve had one of these little rigs for the last month or so and what’s great about the Solis is that it provides a lot of versatility for a customer who may only have the money for one holster, but wants to use it for everything ranging from ECD to possibly even competition shooting. The holster comes with a paddle-style attachment for your waist and belt, but in these photos, you’ll see I’ve adapted it for use on a battle belt for some recent range trips.

TFB Review: Bianchi Universal Revolver Holster – UM84R

The holster maker, Bianchi, recently launched a new website and updated their logo, and asked us to spotlight a few holsters to bring that fact to light. Bianchi has been in the holster making business for more than four decades, and have continued making all types of holsters for armed citizens, law enforcement, and the military under Safariland’s umbrella. Despite Bianchi’s new logo and website, they still remain under Safariland’s ownership. Today, we’ll focus our attention on Bianchi’s Military Universal Revolver holster, model UM84R. This holster is configurable in many different ways to mate numerous different carry styles into one, do-it-all, outside the waistband (OWB) holster. Since I’m an contributing member of TFB’s Wheelgun Wednesday squad, I specifically chose to review this Universal Military Revolver holster from Bianchi, let’s see if this older design is still relevant.

Bianchi has been in the holster making business since the 1970s, and they’re known for their quality leather and nylon holsters. Bianchi just changed their logo and launched a new website, and to highlight that fact, they offered us a chance to test out a few different models, of which I chose the Bianchi P.I. holster for my Smith & Wesson Model 36 J-Frame in .38 Special.
