CrossBreed® Holsters, LLC was started in 2005 by Mark Craighead. An avid shooter, re-loader and CCW permit holder, Mark was introduced to firearms by his father as a young boy. His interest and involvement with firearms, and particularly handguns, continued throughout the years. Through much trial and error, Mark became familiar with holsters, learning what worked and what didn’t.
After collecting the proverbial “box of holsters” Mark decided to design his own and incorporated the best features and discarded all of the non-functional 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, Mark’s 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.
Mark’s 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 was often asked about the origin of the name CrossBreed® Holsters. He was never ashamed to answer that, although there is some reference to the hybrid nature of his designs, the larger meaning behind his company’s name references the Lord Jesus Christ and His sacrifice upon the cross which was made for all mankind.
