    Bianchi 19L Thumbsnap Holster for Sig P229

    Ordered last Wednesday from Opticsplant.com and got it today (6 days later). It fit my Sig P229 SAS Gen 2 E2 like a glove; no massaging needed. I did have to work with the thumb-snap for maybe a minute to get it to snap. I spent the most time, and still only a couple of minutes, working my 1 1/2" 511 Tactical dress belt through the belt loop. CAVEAT - I'm not sure if a thick, or double layer, leather belt will fit.

    Initial impressions: I like it! Looks and feels solid and well-made. I got this to replace my Atkins holster, because it covers the entire barrel and has a thumb-snap.

    Although after leaving Bianchi in the late 1980s I worked in Mexico for a sporting goods company; and because of that I have a high regard for the capabilities of Mexican workers when they're trained -- nevertheless I'll never get used to the "made in Mexico" markings on my beloved Bianchi product line. It would seem an affirmation of handing the King of Gunleather crown to Galco, for example.
