    Question Holster Surrogate for FNS-9

    So I just bought my first gun FNS-9 and picked up a holster that is friction only as it was the only holster I saw that was labeled for the FNS.

    I've been searching online for a holster with Level II or III retention for when I'm on my motorcycle, but being left-handed the only thing I've seen are shoulder holsters that are pretty outrageously priced.

    I used the search function on here and did a lot of reading, but couldn't find an answer.

    So do any of you have advice on what guns to use as a surrogate when searching for fit online?

    Thanks,

    Alan

    Check Kydex Tech.
    Not Level 2 or 3 but the gun won't come out until you WANT it to.
    They have a rubber band thing to "make it Level 2", but it's not necessary at all.

    Raven concealment Phantom has excellent retention, but it's friction only. I have seen where some m&p holsters will work with the fns

    i'll second that holster. i love mine. my brother bought one for a duty holster as well.

    they're VERY comparable to raven concealment in the same model.

    This probably won't help, as I'm guessing you're lookinng for a concealment holster........but my safariland 200-83 for glock fits my FNS-9 just fine. Wword of caution: the finish on the FNH pistols is nowhere near as robust as the glock stuff, so you'll see holster wear pretty quick.

    I third KT holsters. They are set to level 2 as default. You can ask to make it Level 3 if you want. They also have the Akela model which is adjustable. It says so on thier home page. I have a USP holster at level 2. It fits very securely and its true that it takes a good shaking to let the gun loose by itself. I've ordered one for my FNS-9 as well.

    Holster wear = character.

    No holster wear = safe queen.

    +1 on Alien Gear.
    I wear my Sig 1911 in one.
    As comfortable and comforting as can be.

    Thanks for all the advice guys. I'm definitely looking for something with more than just friction retention as I want to wear it on my motorcycle as well.

    Hopefully I can find something concealable and OWB b/c I tried my FNS IWB at my LGS and it was not comfortable/slightly unnerving to have the barrel of my gun pointed towards my thigh ya know?

    I'll start through those links, thanks again everyone.
