    tuck for my glock 36.
    Looks like an easy carry holster.
    Anybody with any experience with this holster

    It comes with a 2 week try it they will buy it back
    if you don't lke it guarentee.
    So I am giving it a try.

    If I were you, I'd send it back. Look at the Minotaur and Spartan holsters from Comptac. Same basic design, but the kydex shell is attached with screws/fasteners and NOT permanently riveted through the leather like the Crossbreed is. They sell the kydex bodies separately and they are very inexpensive. That way you can have one holster for several different pistol types or transition between a summer and winter pistol. Very comfortable holster design and Crossbreed is not the only (or even that great) game in town. Even though the Comptac holsters are a tried and true and VERY durable design, Mark at Crossbreed will not change his design and states that they won't hold up as well as his, which is complete BS. He has had many requests to make the kydex shells interchangeable, but no... Instead, make his customers buy completely separate holsters and spend all that money all over again. :fire:

    Well gosh. Hope I don't irritate anyone, but I like them. I have 3, and I have been very happy with them. I think they are comfortable, and they do what they are supposed to do well. I can carry my PM9, or my 220 Sig with ease. I really like the ability to adjust the depth and cant using the belt clips.
    I will admit that I have looked at the Minotaur, and it might be a plus that the Kydex is interchangeable, but I might carry a different gun every day, and I don't want to sit down with a screwdriver and change the Kydex every time I change guns, so that's not a big plus for me.
    Both the Crossbreed, and the Minotaur are worth looking at, and you will pick your favorite, but I believe you would be happy with either.

    Good luck.

    I'll chime in with MuddFlap. I'd rather not "swap out" my holsters, but have a dedicated holster for each gun. I'd rather pick up my carry gun and go. I've got another Crossbreed on the way, actually!

    Well, to each his own, but Crossbreed is not for me at least for not offering the interchangeable option at all. I know I won't be buying another one.

    Yup, his choice and people are actively seeing his market share decrease and I'm glad to be doing my part. ;)

    OK, blackcash88 that is quite enough. You have stated your opinion now please stop cluttering up jcd15's thread.

    Back on topic. I have been looking at a bunch of different holsters and the supertuck is one I really want to check out. Make sure and give us a review once you get it in.

    I also picked up one of their "messenger bags", with the side zipper. My wife, and my brother both love it, as its exactly the kind of bookbag they use.

    I use the Supertuck for my M&P, and a Milt Sparks for my 1911, but thats just my preference. Overall, a great holster. My brother has been breaking in a supertuck for the past couple weeks, and thinks its great as well. I got the horsehide, but your preference.

    I have found the dedicated holsters to be more durable, and I applaud Mark for keeping his quality to the highest standard. If blackcash88 or others want a modular holster, there are certainly options out there. Doesn't say anything about the quality of Mark's holsters, and certainly no reason to send it back!

    His holsters are no higher quality than anything else out there in the price range. ;)

    So, I think we all know what your opinion is. Here's an idea: How about putting your own money at risk and start making a product you feel is better? I have no doubt you would be successful if you spent as much time working on a product, business plan, and marketing as you do trolling the various threads trying to tear down an honest businessman trying to make a buck with a product that, from what I've seen, most people swear by.

    I don't have dog in this hunt; I don't own a Crossbreed, MTAC, or similar style holster. I do know that Mark will get my business if and when I do simply because you've pi$$ed me off enough to send money to him. Experience tells me that when you try to make a product that does too many things, it doesn't do one well.

    Do you get this upset if Ford won't put a small block Chevy 350 in the pickup you want?:scrutiny: Mark, keep to the high road.

    I feel better...

    Regards

    Why do I need to waste my money to show down an inferior design? Comptac already provides the superior solution.

    People seem to have the wrong impression with the MTAC interchangeable bodies. They are not meant to be changed out daily to suit a different firearm, they are meant for long-term use so that the leather backing can conform to the firearm (and your body-shape) for a better fit. If, in the future, you want to carry a different handgun in the same rig, then all you would need is the kydex shell. There would still be a break-in period for the leather backing so that it can conform to the new firearm, unless it is of a similar design.

    Also, the kydex on my supertuck had stress cracks at the bottom corners in about one month of use. :rolleyes:

    I didn't bother sending it back because I went with another superior design. :cool:

    Wouldn't be my first choice but a lot of people seem to like theirs. If I got one I would at least plan to put my gun in it and sketch out where the backing piece blocks the grip and take a box cutter to it so you can get a full firing grip without it in the way. I'm not a fan of generic cuts on holsters.

    While the majority of our customers are fine with our standard cut, you do make a good observation there, two remdies come to mind that are quite common.

    A) Some folks do just as you mention and custom trim thier backers to suit them.

    B) We also offer a "combat grip" trim which accomplishes the same thing should the customer desire it.

    Why do you charge more for less leather? IIRC, it was an additional $8 or so for the combat cut. It's not like it's rocket science or ANY extra expense to have the blade zig one way instead of zagging another way. You make these to order right? Don't tell me about having to modify the "stock" ones. :rolleyes:
