    That's kinda what I was thinking. If I were the crossbreed guy, I'd be honored somewhat that a big company like Comp-tac would even consider an idea that I came up with.

    On the other hand, the Mtac is getting a LOT of attention.

    I am pretty sure it was a Crossbreed idea to begin with. Comp-Tac saw a good idea and jumped on board.

    I am just wondering when there will be a UBG version.

    I thought it was Tucker Gunleather's "The Answer" - but then again I have no reference for this other than I heard of it first. I remember reading a blurb in American Handgunner about it. I'd never heard of Crossbreed or Comp-Tac until I came to this site.

    As I understand it, Tucker made the "Answer" first, with design help from Comp-Tac's head guy, and Comp-Tac supplied the kydex part to Tucker. I don't know if that's still the case or if Tucker now has a different supplier. FWIW, I remember when Tucker first started making the Answer and it had to be at least 5 or 6 years ago, maybe more. I don't know how long the Crossbreed has been around.

    Either out of professional courtesy, or maybe just because he had enough on his plate to keep him busy, Comp-Tac didn't offer a similar product for a long time, but just recently decided it was time to get in that market. With typical Comp-Tac results, it seems to be a big hit and the guy at Comp-Tac tells me they've sold a lot more, and a lot faster, than they expected.

    In case you didn't know it, Comp-Tac is now offering kydex reinforced leather belts, too.

    Chicken or egg?? How about before it was even a glint in their daddy's eye!

    Tuckers Answer has been around since mid 2002. Here's the thread where they were originally trying to come up with a name for it. Note the date of the first post.

    It's interesting that one of the suggested names for the Tucker holster in that thread was "Crossbreed".

    I always thought the "hideinator" was a better name...my cousin is a crossbreed and his folks keep him locked in the basement.

    I thought Minotaur was a very clever name:

    Minotaur = half man, half bull = half man-made (kydex), half cowhide

    I guess I just picture the Minotaur from Dantes' Inferno getting his throat slit in hell....

    Your explanation is much better. Thanks.

    Well, which ever really makes no difference to me, I REALLY LOVE my M-TAC. They are slightly different. M Tac has a double layer of leather and the holster shells are interchangeable. Crossbreed appears to be a single layer of leather, with the kydex shell riveted to it. Users of both appear to be satisfied.
