posted on June 8, 2021

Safariland is known for making safety products that are designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, and now they are rolling out holster that are designed for the new microcompact Taurus GX4.  

“The new Taurus GX4 is a compact pistol that’s ideal for everyday carry,” said Eric Gasvoda, Vice President and General Manager for The Safariland Group duty gear division. “And Safariland specializes in how Americans carry. These holsters for the new micro-nine GX4 offer immediate options for anyone looking to carry a GX4. From the classic leather of Bianchi to the innovative retention systems developed by Safariland, we have the holster you need.”

Bianchi offers different right and left-handed holsters which offer in-waist-band concealment of the GX4. The Model 6 and tuckable 6T provide classic inside the waistband (IWB) concealment, while the Bianchi Model 6 ATB combines IWB carry with a thumb-break strap for even more retention.

Safariland’s IWB lineup for the GX4 includes the minimalist Model 17 and tuckable 17T holsters. The Model 27 as a unique "J" shaped belt hook that allows it to be worn with almost any belt, while the open-top, semi-rigid body with adjustable tension for smooth, fast draw. For those who prefer more width to their holsters, the two attachment points on the Bianchi Model 135 allows for all day long comfort with maximum concealment. The Safariland Model 25 is designed for pocket carry if you want to take advantage of the small size of the Taurus GX4, and for even deeper concealment, the Bianchi Model 150 Negotiator provides you with a great ankle carry option for your GX4.

The GX4 is also large enough for carrying outside the waistband. The Bianchi 126 Assent combines leather and synthetic materials, while the Bianchi Model 105 Minimalist is a leather holster with a compact, open-top design that is ideal for daily wear. For increased retention, the Bianchi Venom offers a thumb break strap, while the Bianchi Model 82 offers Safariland’s CarryLok system to accomplish the same goal.
