My Concealed Carry Holster

For concealed carry, I use an inside-the-waistband (IWB) holster. It's made by Crossbreed, and I'm very much satisfied with it.

The one pictured above is identical to mine in design. The weapon and holster slide inside the pants, while the clips remain outside, affixed to the belt. This arrangement allows the weapon to hug the body, while the leather back keeps the hammer and sight from digging into flesh. I find mine extremely comfortable.

The pictured holster differs from mine only in its black color. I ordered mine in natural horsehide. (Horsehide does not absorb sweat and body odors as readily as cowhide.)

Mark Craighead designed the holster. Although he has since died, he leaves behind a legacy of faith and customer service that looks a lot like the Biblical concept of servanthood.
  1. 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. 
  2. CrossBreed® Holsters raised the standard for customer service in the holster industry by offering a two week try-it-free guarantee and a lifetime warranty.  This service continues today with each and every holster that goes out the door. CrossBreed® Holsters’ customers are customers for life. (link)

I have no financial stake in Crossbreed holsters. I'm just a satisfied customer.
