Crossbreed Holsters 
Innovative CCW Options

by Jim Taylor

With the ever-increasing number of CCW holders in the country the need for holsters to carry those weapons has increased also. There are a number of options available these days and surprisingly I found one nearly in my backyard!

Crossbreed Holsters, an innovative company with unique designs for CCW is located just a few miles up the road from me. I was not aware of their existence until good friend Jeff Quinn of www.gunblast.com emailed me about them. He had visited with the owner, Mark Craighead at the SHOT Show. Jeff said, “Republic, Missouri is near you isn’t it?” Yes it is, so I gave Mark a call and set up a time to visit him.

Mark is a very personable guy and was happy to show us around his shop. Their operation, while not large, turns out a lot of holsters. They make several different styles of what they call “tuckable” holsters. The Super Tuck Deluxe, the QuikClip, the Standard IWB and the SOB (Small Of the Back). 

These all have a generous backing of supple leather that makes wearing them really comfortable. If you have ever worn a small IWB (Inside the Waist Band) holster with a revolver you know the feeling of getting poked by the hammer spur of the revolver. The CrossBreed holsters take care of that problem quite nicely. 

I have been wearing a CrossBreed QuikClip holster and even when worn against the skin it has not chafed me. The wide body spreads the weight out and makes concealed carry more pleasant. Combined with a Kydex holster, you have the basis for the name “CrossBreed”. The hard Kydex holster holds the firearm securely, rigidly and comfortably. And importantly the holster will not collapse when the gun is drawn, making re-holstering it literally a “snap”. (pun intended)

The wide body of the holster makes it very concealable. It pulls in tight and does not “print through” a shirt or vest. The “Super Tuck” is probably one of the better holsters available for concealing a large handgun such as a 1911 or a full-size Glock.

CrossBreed also offers concealment magazine carriers in addition to “OWB” or “Outside the Waist Band” holsters. All their holsters are available in either right-hand or left-hand configuration. For more information on their products you can visit their website at http://www.crossbreedholsters.com or call toll free at 888-732-5011.
