FoxFury and John Bianchi to Release Limited Edition Flashlight and Custom Holster Set at SHOT Show 2012
FoxFury Lighting Solutions has teamed with John Bianchi, CEO of Frontier Gunleather and founder of Bianchi International, to create 200 limited edition CheckMate JB flashlight and holster sets. Each set consists of a serialized 600 torch lumen Rook CheckMate JB LED flashlight together with a leather holster designed by John Bianchi. Come see this limited edition collectible and meet John Bianchi in FoxFury's booth #26206 at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
John is considered the Godfather of Gunleather who revolutionized gun carry methods and handgun performance throughout the world. John also helped pioneer the tactical light market in 1975 with his robust Bianchi B-lite, which served as the predecessor to the modern police flashlight. John?s influence to this day can be seen in the design of many holsters and the promotion of competitive shooting though the Bianchi Cup.
The serialized FoxFury CheckMate JB flashlight delivers an impressive 600 torch lumens of light. Each of these CREE LED flashlights sports a hard anodized gunmetal gray exterior with John?s famous signature. This limited edition set comes with a custom leather holster designed by John Bianchi exclusively for this project. Holsters are available in either black or tan.
"I want to thank FoxFury for the opportunity to partner with them on this limited collectors' set. A flashlight and holster, while being important tools, can also be things of great beauty. I look forward to big things in 2012 with FoxFury," said Bianchi.
Only 200 of these collectible sets have been created making this a must have for collectors. Each set sells for $299.99 and will come with a certificate of authenticity. A limited quantity of this first Limited Edition may be pre-ordered from FoxFury prior to the start of SHOT by contacting FoxFury?s corporate headquarters in Vista, CA at 760-945-4231. FoxFury will have one of these limited edition sets on display at their booth (#26206) at SHOT Show.
SHOT Show will be held January 17 to 20 in Las Vegas at the Sands Expo Convention Center. John Bianchi will be in the FoxFury booth signing autographs and available for photos on Tuesday January 17 and Wednesday January 18 from 2 pm to 3 pm. There will also be a special press conference at the booth on Tuesday at 1:45 pm where Mario Cugini, CEO of FoxFury, and John will be discussing their new partnership.
About John Bianchi:
Starting in his garage and working as a Police Officer in the mid-1950's, John Bianchi produced totally new design concepts in holsters that were years ahead of their time. In so doing, Bianchi completely revolutionized the way handguns are carried and as a result built the largest international holster-manufacturing company, which still bears his name. Through the decades, Bianchi has produced gunleather for such names as John Wayne, Elvis Presley, Paul Newman, Sammy Davis Jr., Roy Rogers and many others. There is scarcely a holster produced today that does not show the early Bianchi design influence. Enduring and pervasive, the Bianchi design concepts have profoundly affected the way millions of shooters think about guns and holsters throughout the world. Following the sale of Bianchi International, the company he founded 40 years ago, he retired as Chairman of the Board. Prior to his retirement, Bianchi led the design team that created the M-12 military holster, now the official holster for all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.
