very interesting. I hope someone here buys one and gives us a report
It may work as any holster should but for those of us that have nice, somewhat pricey belts this is a huge no-go.
Like any holster, without a barrier between the gun and belt, your belt will wear with repeated use making your belt less attractive and severely blemished when the holster isn't in place.
I wouldn't waste my hard earned money.

None for me Bianchi...Thanks but, No Thanks.
I don't like the idea of "minimalist" holsters in general.
They don't protect the firearm muzzle crown or the front sight.
I give it a year before you don't see that one advertised anymore.
I’ll pass also, seems like it is just half a holster that provides little retention even with part of it slipping into the trigger guard. Bianchi is known for making good-looking quality holsters but what were they thinking on this one.

I can see that being ok for a person that never walks fast, runs, bends over, breaths, eats, sits, stands..err wait might work if you mounted it to your head board ..Think I'll pass as well
I got 2 of these holsters at the NRA convention this past weekend. For what it is it works GREAT. Yes it doesnt protect the muzzle. Yes it may mess up you high end belt. But working where I do (Cabela's firearms department) I am not allowed to carry a gun at work. This holster has solved my issue of having to take my holster off every day when I get to work. I can now leave my gun locked in my truck and still keep my holster on me. This holster does have a supprisong amount of retention for what it is. Granted this is NOT the end all be all holster but it fills a niche for me quite nicely. That and the fact that it holds my dads Sig P238 all the way up to my FNH FNP 45 makes it nice for people that have multiple guns but can't afford to drop $60-$100 on a good holster for every gun. Say what you will about it but at $20.00 for 2 of them; one brown and one black I feel it was well worth my hard earned money.

I get the feeling that Medicman218 doesn't care for the concept or the holster.
