Posted on 09/06/2012 6:03:12 PM PDT by West Texas Chuck
A man who built some of the most favorite of my holsters has gone to the big gun range in the sky.
I own a couple of his IWBs and I consider them very comfy and concealable. But WTF do I know? Nuttin much.
See ya up there brah, I'll be the guy on the bicycle.
Super Tuck Deluxe, baby. It works for me. Yay Crossbreed.
I got one of these holsters for a Christmas gift for Hubby. He loves it. It was recommended to him by a co-worker who loaned him one for the day to “try out”. It promptly went on the must have list. He rarely leaves home without it.
When milliseconds count a gun in the drawer is seconds away.
I like the way yer big old brain thinks Johnny.
Send ‘em downrange when yer ready.
That’s cool, fo sho. But I like to roam around with something that has a little more meat on it ;)
I use the very same little magnum cannon as a back-up, except when cutting the grass, then it’s the primary. I wouldn’t even take out the trash unarmed nowadays.
Mark was a good Christian man, and his company makes a great product. Hope he has someone to carry on for him.
Do you carry ear plugs with you at all times, indoor and out?
After collecting the proverbial box of holsters Mark decided to design his own and incorporated the best features and discarded all of the nonfunctional design elements.
The result of these efforts saw Mark making a new breed of holsters and selling them from his own garage. Within just a couple of years, Marks holsters were achieving such popularity that his company, Crossbreed Holsters, gained national recognition as a maker of some of the best and most functional concealment holsters available. Each holster is made by hand by craftsmen personally trained by Mark. CrossBreed Holsters currently occupies a 2400 square foot commercial facility and employs 7 craftsmen, and 2 administrative staff with Mark overseeing all daily operations. They make each holster by hand, right here in the USA.
Marks company also raised the standard for customer service in the holster industry by offering a two week try-it-free guarantee and a lifetime warranty. CrossBreed Holsters customers are usually customers for life.
Mark is often asked about the origin of the name CrossBreed Holsters. He is not ashamed to answer that, although there is some reference to the hybrid nature of his designs, the larger meaning behind his companys name references the Lord Jesus Christ and His sacrifice upon the cross which was made for all mankind.
We appreciate your interest in our products and look forward to doing business with you"
I was unfamiliar with them. I checked out their site. Some company. I'm ordering a belt and looking forward to receiving the best belt I'll ever own. Thanks for the post.
I bet MC will rest in a well appointed coffin. True loss.
I have two of them. They work really well.
I can’t find it on their website! What’s the caliber?
I had never heard of NAA before reading a thread on FR and someone made tangential reference to a Mini. IMO, they are quality and have high utility. Ended up with a Snake Slayer the same way.
100% of the time I am wearing pants I am carrying ear plugs.
Oh well, I had my hopes up that they had finally made a .32 in the little derringers. I like my .22 winmag with folding grip. Up to twenty feet it’s quite accurate.
