Gear Safariland Group Releases M&P Shield .45 Holsters Incoming June 1, 2016 Join the Conversation At the 2016 NRA Annual Meeting, S&W debuted a new caliber for their popular pocket pistol: .45ACP. Seeing as how you can't just stuff a .45ACP into a 9mm frame, dimensions were appropriately increased. Of course, that means new holsters are required. Safariland Group has stepped in and released more than a dozen of them specifically for this new offering. Here's what they have to say about it: Safariland announced the expansion of Safariland® and Bianchi® concealment holster lines with several new fits for the incredibly popular Smith & Wesson M&P Shield .45. “With the launch of the Smith & Wesson’s M&P Shield .45, we are excited to debut fits in several of our most popular holsters across the Safariland and Bianchi brands,” said Scott Carnahan, Vice President, Equipment.“With more than 15 concealable options between Safariland and Bianchi, consumers and professionals will find the perfect holster for their concealment needs.” Renowned for innovation, quality and performance, Safariland holsters are the overwhelming choice of law enforcement agencies and competition shooters. Safariland concealment holster models fitting the M&P Shield .45 encompass ten models for belt slide, paddle and inside-the-pants carry. The Bianchi holsters for the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield .45 demonstrate the brand’s legacy craftsmanship in leather products that balances functional design and quality. M&P Shield .45 users have several carry options with choices for two belt slide holsters and two inside the waist models, including Bianchi’s best-selling Model 100 Professional™ and, three holsters from the Allusion™ series.
