I have been a Crossbreed fan for some time now. The one thing I find the most beneficial is the comfort it provides when carrying a full size 1911.
I was going to order another for my Browning Hi-Power until I found out that the FS Government is the same part number as the BHP. I have tried to carry my Browning in the Crossbreed and there is a lack of "capture" on the BHP. It rattles around in the holster.
I thought about purchasing the Crossbreed in horsehide because of the weather here in south Florida. Decided to go with cow hide to save the premium up-charge and wish I had spent the extra cash.
I started to look around for a new holster and ran across a member's suggestion (Goju was that you?)
to check out Theis Holsters of North Little Rock, Ar. I did and I contacted Tommy Theis posing my concern of Kydex holsters sold for the Browning HP are actually formed using a 1911 blank.
Tommy made it very clear that his BHP holsters are made with a Browning blank and they hold the pistol securely. He went on to add that all his holsters come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, lifetime warranty. Wear it for two weeks and if you don't like it, return it for a full refund.

I just got my Browning Hi-Power Theis Holster yesterday. It was $65 including shipping for the horsehide version. It is going into a two week test periord and I will post a staff review of my thoughts when finished.
Things are looking good for Tommy's holster, it passes the canebrake, upside-down shake test. The Crossbreed failed the test without the shake part!
