John Bianchi is back in the saddle again, with an all new select line of premium quality, hand-crafted Western gunbelts and holsters for the discriminating buyer.


Each rig is one of a kind, handmade outfit crafted by John Bianchi personally and accompanied with an engraved certificate of originality signed by the maker, suitable for framing. Plain or fancy with elaborate floral carving and sterling silver, these new gunbelts capture the flavor of old world design and craftsmanship... handmade by the master himself.


Bianchi is known as the "Father of the modern holster" and the "master of concealment" and is responsible for the design and production of an incredible 20 million high-quality holsters, belts and related accessories during his prolific 40-year career as a holster manufacturer. No one in history has had a more profound effect on holster design and gun concealment than John Bianchi.


Starting in his garage and working as a police officer in the mid-1950's, Bianchi produced totally new design concepts in holsters that were years ahead of their time. In so doing, Bianchi completely revolutionized the way handguns are carried and as a result built the largest international holster-manufacturing company, which still bears his name.


During his long career that spans more than five decades, Bianchi has become one of the most familiar personalities in the Firearms industry. His image is recognized by millions of police, military and sportsmen, worldwide.


Following the sale of Bianchi International, the company he founded 40 years ago, he retired as Chairman of the Board. Prior to his retirement, Bianchi led the design team that created the M-12 military holster, now the official holster of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.


Among John Bianchi's numerous achievements, which include authoring the industry best seller Blue Steel & Gunleather, the definitive book on the history and use of holsters. Bianchi has accumulated over 200 patents, trademarks and copyrights. Bianchi has been a life member of the NRA since 1949 and founded the "Bianchi Cup," now the NRA's premier international pistol competition.


There is scarcely a holster produced today that does not show the early Bianchi design influence. Enduring and pervasive, the Bianchi design concepts have profoundly affected the way millions of shooters think about guns think about guns and holsters throughout the world. Named the Outstanding American Handgunner in 1986, Bianchi received the prestigious Firearms Industry's highest award for lifetime achievement.
