The Legendary John Bianchi and Mario Cugini Talking Tactical Lights

VISTA, Ca. - The legendary John Bianchi, CEO of Frontier Gunleather and founder of Bianchi International, and FoxFury Lighting Solutions announce an alliance to redefine the look and feel of the flashlight experience for all users. The goal is to create the lighting tools of tomorrow using the latest technology along with old-school quality and craftsmanship. Come meet John Bianchi and Mario Cugini, CEO of FoxFury, at SHOT Show booth #26206 to learn about the new projects they'll be embarking upon.

John Bianchi has been a police officer, a military general, competitive shooter, author and THE authority on holsters.

Bianchi's D-cell powered B-lite and Super B-lite have influenced many of the police flashlights from the 1980s to modern day. 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.

"I am excited to be working with FoxFury on the introduction of some great new products," said Bianchi.

Mario Cugini founded FoxFury Lighting Solutions in 2003 to revolutionize the lighting experience by offering a hands-free LED surfing light for recreational use. When Cugini learned of the unfilled niche lighting needs of first responders, he redirected the company's focus towards professional markets. FoxFury designs and manufacturers LED lighting solutions (including headlamps, area lights and flashlights) primarily for fire, law enforcement, military and industrial applications worldwide. FoxFury formed partnerships early on with top LED manufacturers including CREE and OSRAM. FoxFury was the first company to exclusively use LEDs in all lights in order to target the niche needs in professional markets.

"FoxFury is thrilled to be able to work together with John Bianchi. John and I are eager to give shape to our vision of a new type of flashlight that will feel like a natural extension of a person's hand," said Cugini.SHOT Show

John and Mario will be available at FoxFury's booth during SHOT #26206 to mingle with press, buyers and flashlight enthusiasts about their new relationship and the elements of the future product designs. SHOT Show will be held from January 17 to 20 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.

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.
