Bianchi Unveils Model 145 Subdue Inside-The-Waistband Holster at SHOT Show
Part of the Allusion line, Subdue offers deep concealment in leather and synthetic combination

ONTARIO, California – Bianchi® announced today that it released the new Subdue™ IWB Model 145 Holster at the 2016 SHOT (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade) Show at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 19-22. Part of Bianchi’s Allusion™ line, this inside-the-waistband holster offers a compact, highly concealable design. The back is constructed with an anti-bacterial and microbial mesh padded liner, which prevents germs and odor from accumulating against the body.

With the new Subdue, Bianchi adds a second Allusion IWB holster to the line that features both an extremely comfortable inside the waist design for all-day comfort, and prevents bacterial growth. The Subdue offers a smaller, more compact footprint than its predecessor, the popular Model 145 Suppression™ model.

Key features of the Subdue IWB holster include:
• Premium full-grain leather exterior with a laminate synthetic liner that makes for a smooth draw and long-lasting wear
• Heavy-duty spring steel belt clip that securely anchors holster to the wearer’s belt or trousers
• Anti-bacterial and microbial foam padding on inside liner of leather backing to prevent germs and odor from accumulating against the wearer’s body
• Padded liner provides added comfort not normally found on bare leather designs
• Slight detent in trigger guard for enhanced weapon retention
• Fits up to 1.75” (45mm) belt widths

“The new Subdue is worthy of Bianchi’s reputation as a leading designer of innovative, high-quality leather handgun holsters,” said Scott Carnahan, Vice President, Equipment for Safariland. “From its smooth draw to the technology embedded in its design, SHOT Show was the perfect place to launch this holster.”

The Subdue IWB Model 145 is available in black for various sizes with an MSRP of $68.00.
