Let’s examine three strong-side hip holsters crafted from top-grade cowhide for large frame autopistols from Bianchi International, El Paso Saddlery and Wilson Combat.
Bianchi Covert Option
Prior to World War II there were three major US holster manufacturers. They were S. D. Myres, H.H. Heiser and the George Lawrence Company. None of these are in business today, and as a result, their holsters are expensive collectibles. Bianchi International is the closest thing to these old-line holster makers, being founded by John Bianchi, celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. Bianchi International continues the tradition of producing the finest genuine leather holsters with their new Covert Option inside-the-pants concealment holster.
