Under the direction and ingenuity of Mark Craighead, CrossBreed® Holsters LLC took life in the family’s garage in 2005. Mark was an avid shooter, re-loader and concealed carry permit holder who was introduced to firearms at a young age by his father. With a strong interest in firearms – particularly handguns – Mark grew his knowledge of the firearms industry and with his experience, Mark became familiar with holsters, learning what worked and what did not.

2006

Within a couple of years, Mark’s hybrid holster design had achieved such popularity that his company, CrossBreed® Holsters, gained national recognition as a leading manufacturer of some of the best and most functional concealment holsters available on the market today. This growth made it a necessity to move in 2006 from the family’s garage to a larger facility, There he hired and trained several employees with his craft, most of who still work for the company today.

2009

Mark was often asked about the name CrossBreed® Holsters. He was not ashamed to answer that, although there is some reference to the hybrid holster designs he created, the larger meaning behind his company’s name references the Lord Jesus Christ and His sacrifice on the cross that was made for all mankind.

Mark raised the standard for customer service in the holster industry through its two-week, try-it-free guarantee and a lifetime warranty*. Those standards continue today with every CrossBreed® holster that is manufactured and sold. CrossBreed® Holsters ensures that every customer is a customer for life. The combination of the families belief, great products and unmatched customer service, the company continued to grow resulting in the need to move into yet a larger building in 2009.

Mark was called to be with his savior on August 24, 2012. At a young age of 43, Mark touched many lives with the success of his business and in his own way, he Carried the Cross for many of his friends and family. In an interview before his passing, Mark was asked what he would most like to be remembered for and in his way of always thinking of others first, he stated:

“Touching other people’s lives in a positive way and making a difference, because that, no matter where you are at in life, is really more important than business success, finances, any of it! I don’t care what your financial level is. When you learn to bless other people, you truly get blessed yourself.”

Under the direction of Carol Craighead, along with several members of the family and many long time employees, the business continues to grow making it necessary to move into an even larger facility in July of 2014

The new facility is more than just a building, but a tribute to Mark and his success in achieving the American dream. The move to the new facility in July is taking CrossBreed® to the next level allowing them to provide a quicker turn around time on their handcrafted holsters as well as the space and ability to introduce new products.

Because of Mark’s great passion for the firearm industry, business and customers, we honor Mark with every holster crafted for you, the customer. The Craighead family would like to thank you for your support of CrossBreed® Holsters. They are committed to promoting that same passion throughout the company as they carry on Mark’s vision providing the highest-quality concealed holster on the market.
