Under the direction and ingenuity of Mark Craighead, CrossBreed Holsters LLC was born 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.
CrossBreed Holsters has 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.
Founded by two best friends, in their garage, Girls with Guns® Clothing (GWG) was born out of a dream and fashioned through a partnership that’s one part risk taker and one part conservative.

A perfect combination of our passion for the sport of shooting, hunting and fashion, GWG clothing and accessories let women show their love for hunting and shooting in an edgy way. Our line, designed by women for women, was created for all women from the avid hunter and shooter to the fashionista, to allow them to keep warm while looking good! It is your everyday, outdoor lifestyle apparel. There’s something for everyone: from gun and shell bags to t-shirts, pants and sweatshirts, including the ever-popular fur hoodies.

Gun Tote’n Mamas™, an affordable line of Concealed Carry handbags, was inspired and developed BY WOMEN FOR WOMEN. We don’t make this statement lightly. Our parent company, Kingport Industries LLC, is a Certified Women Owned Business (WBE, WBENC) since 2004. In 2008 we exhibited at the Shot Show for the first time. Being in the travel goods and accessory leather products industry for over 35 years, we displayed and demonstrated these products which included handbags. We were not prepared for the OVERWHELMING response from Instructors, Law Enforcement and Security Personnel (men and women) asking if our handbags were made for Concealed Carry. That AH-HA moment proved how important it was to provide reasonably priced, high quality and multi-tasking concealed carry bags without compromise on design, construction and, most important, LEATHER. We spent over a year doing extensive research and development. We collaborated and worked through issues and concerns expressed to us by Instructors of CCW classes all across the United States.
Every one of our products has been TESTED, TESTED, TESTED by Instructors from facilities training CSI, FBI and Navy Seals to the consumer like yourself. We want to hear it all – we are not afraid and HIGHLY encourage your feedback. It is comments from the field that will continue to make these bags the best for the job. Please email us at GUN TOTE’N MAMAS™. You are what you carry, so let Gun Tote’n Mamas help you be safe, secure and TAKE CONTROL IN STYLE!
Hornady Manufacturing has gone from a start-up in a small Grand Island former auto body shop to become the largest independently owned maker of bullets, ammunition, and tools in the world. That’s quite an accomplishment. It demonstrates that a great many things have been done right throughout the company’s history. It suggests as well that the future may prove just as promising.
The Hornady Manufacturing Company is truly more than the sum of its employees, equipment and facilities. A visitor to Grand Island, Nebraska, can quickly discover how active the Hornady family has been in community affairs, how generous in its philanthropy, how concerned for helping others—including the larger shooting community.
The Hornady heritage and the Hornady vision are one and the same.
Forrest and Charlotte started Lucas Oil Products with the simple philosophy of producing only the best line of lubricants and additives available anywhere. Since its inception, Lucas has steadfastly adhered to this corporate objective. Through innovative product research and development, along with aggressive marketing programs, Lucas has established itself as a top selling additive line in the American truck stop industry.
Lucas is also one of the fastest growing additive lines in the consumer automotive industry. A premium line of oils, greases and problem solving additives has helped to firmly establish Lucas as a prominent figure in this marketplace.
Lucas also produces a heavy duty line of products for the industrial and agricultural markets. President Forrest Lucas sums it up, “Our forte’ is to make better products for industries and specialty situations that are not having their needs completely satisfied by other oil products and, believe me, the major oil companies have left a lot of weak spots. We have an excellent staff and a world of technology which we have gained through years of research. Together we have done a great deal in a short period of time and we intend to do a lot more.”
Lucas has long been directly involved in the American racing industry through multiple vehicle sponsorships and racing event promotions, at all levels. Seeing a need for better lubricants in this industry, the Lucas people went to work again. The end result being a line of high performance engine oils and gear oils that are second-to-none in the racing industry.
The Lucas success story has been built upon hard work, an unparalleled line of premium products and an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction. This single formula for success will continue to guide Lucas Oil Products as it grows in the years to come.
