I always try new things and I love the Bianchi model 100 for my 1911 pistol. This is the inside the pants type of holster.
Anyway, I went to try the same type for my little 38 J frame I tote around. I placed the holster inside the pants and placed the revolver in. It felt like the gun may pop out easily, not a good thing. I figured that I should at least try it at home before hitting the streets. So, I went to wash the truck. The revolver popped out of the holster whacking the pavement leaving a couple good scars on the frame. Well, at least I don't have to call the police and inform them, as I was riding my motorcycle the gun fell out of it's holster and it's somewhere on route 84! #:-s
I tested this holster and it utterly failed. It is being sent back!
SAY NO TO THE MODEL 100 for the J frame!!!
I've told this story many times before. I had the same experience with my M-36, when using an UM's nylon open top IWB clip on holster. When I squatted down, my thigh came in contact with the barrel, and pushed the gun out of the holster. It then fell onto the floor, with a 'too loud' crash. Everybody in the gunshop heard it!!!! Bob
My gun I carry is the 649 bodyguard. That's the one that I had to refinish last night. I took the scars out! :ymapplause: Your holster won't work for me. It doesn't have a hammer spur so strapping it in that fashion is impossible for the 640 & 649.
If not take a look at Galco's summer comfort IWB, I've got some pic's of it with my 640ND, but the lip band on the holster actually locks in behind the cylinder holding it in place. Its a very snug fit. You can't even shake the gun loose.
I used to have a Bianchi 100 clip on IWB holster. I found it to be too long for my use. I have a long back/short waist, and it wasn't suitable for my body build! Very uncomfortable!!! I now use a Don Hume IWB w/belt loops......which is great!!!! Bob
