    Why would a holster manufacturer do this?

    I am looking for an IWB for my LCP. Been following some of the threads here. When I click on a favorite holster or "this one works for me" link, I find that the manufacturer will put a honking big insignia or some other give away on their belt clip.







    There are enough smart people out there that I do not need to be made...especially at work.

    Agreed. That is NOT the place to put their logo.

    And based on the pic, I hate that style of j-hook. It won't hold onto a belt for squat.

    That is a little odd. None of my holsters have anything of the sort.

    After owning a pretty shoddy holster from that maker, I have avoided their products.

    Thankfully the CrossBreed symbol on their belt clips is just a cross, so I feel like I am displaying my Christian beliefs rather than telling everyone that I'm carrying a concealed handgun.

    But if someone knew what those crosses actually meant and wondered for a split second why you have two of them on your belt... its not hard to put two and two together!

    Most mass produced holster makers do this for advertisement. They figure (IMO, I am not an expert) that since you will be concealing much of the holster, they have to "announce" to everyone what product you are wearing. Take a look at some custom holster makers, you will see that their mark (if any) is on the holster itself, out of the way.

    I agree. My maker's stamp goes on the back of the holster...ONLY. I am proud of my work and if my clients want to show someone my holster, that is great. I do not want to advertise that they are wearing it though.

    Look at me, look at me...I have a gun...lol (I don't think so)

    Dumb design. Couldn't you place the belt in front of the clip?

    You could with a 'J' hook...

    A lot of gangbangers and other bad guy types might be as informed as we are about holsters. You might, just might now, be deluding yourself.

    Look toward something with a J-hook like a Comp-tac or something. Maybe even Don Hume. They dont label their hooks. That hook you show can also go under your belt for addition cinching and security.

    Because the director of advertising and marketing is an idiot and there's no one in the company that has the cajones to tell him/her so.

    That doesn't work so well if you're not a Christian...

    Disguise it - epoxy a "Peace Sign" over the round holster name, or a Mercedes Benz logo from a keychain. Disfigure it - sand it off. Or, best yet, buy a different brand of holster.

    I would buy a crossbreed in a second if they would get rid of the stupid cross/advertisement on the belt clips.
