O hell I was out of it when I posted that. I'm surprised my typing wasn't all butchered and was even understandable. :laugh:

I visited quite a few of the suppliers on the list but I had no success. I ordered a Veridian CL laser (no light) for my 5.7 and it seems to be queering the deal. Evidently the laser is difficult to work with. I am open for suggestions!

In a way this is a good thing. I now have an excuse to buy leather working tools.

Yes, lights/lasers make things more difficult. Even with this thread being a strictly FsN list, the people/companies named are not FsN specific. There are too many variants out there for people to stock or even keep molds of for every gun/light/laser combo. As such, your best option is custom & they'll probably need you to send the light/laser.

Would anyone have any suggestions on a shoulder holster for a medium/ smallish frame person?

I hope this holster review proves helpful to some of you. I posted it in a new thread so we can keep on topic on this one.

I ordered on of these that I found on E-Bay.... Got it in and I love it. I am a private investigator and I carry my 5.7 daily. It is comfortable and rides nice. He shipped within a few days.

ebay doesn't count as a source :skep:

However, the ad did state the manufacturer & provide a link we didn't have.
The website doesn't show they offer one for the FsN. But since you do have one & I like his "police" note :lmao: I'll add them :thumb:
NOTE TO THE EBAY POLICE>>>The firearm in the picture is an aluminum dummy gun NOT a firearm.

Found another source. They are making hybrid leather/kydex IWB holsters.

They list them for the FsN and the FNP9.

They make them for the FsN, FNP9 and 40, and the FNX9 and 40.

Custom leather holster company. Looks like they will make a holster for any gun whether it be ankle, shoulder, belt owb or iwb.

I didn't see the FsN on their site so I contacted them. They do make holsters for the FsN.
Thanks, added

I pretty much assumed they would make anything to fit. When you go to their holster selection you just type in what you have and the details of it, no pre set drop down list.

Yes, but I do not (intentionally) list places which need you to send in your FsN so that they can make something for it - didn't know if this one was such a place. I have also seen places who say they do custom work but they don't make one for the FsN :facepalm: I check that the sources either list the FsN or can make it without sending in your FsN before I put them on the list.

Ahh ok. Wasn't sure what this place was limited too. I'm considering having them make me a shoulder holster for my commander size 1911 (my dress gun) for when I have to rarely wear a suit. I'd like to give that gun a nice holster to go with since that's the only time I carry the thing.

Removed Westwoods Landing. Went to check something & found this:

Elite's people can make one for the FsN with Viridian C5L without sending in your gun now, since they used my laser for the mold.

Here is the finished product after i did some beveling and material removal/reshaping with my dremel:

Cost was $85 i think.

add in Kangroo Carry at http://www.kangaroocarry.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; for conceal carry underneath shirts and polo's

the website has some great videos on wear, sizing and use. (which is why I'm not posting one :p )

a friend of mine has one and uses it to conceal a glock 45 (and did it very well, considering he has a very slender frame), so I bought one and use it when I cannot use a vest, jacket or other items. it hides my 5.7 real easy :thumb:

I will add that Tennessee Holster Company makes a very nice all leather, adjustable cant IWB for the FiveseveN. I have one for my XDm and one for my FN. It's one of the more comfortable holsters I've worn, including a Crossbreed and N82tactical.

I'm not affiliated in any way with Tennessee Holster Co. Just a happy camper/customer. And Larry and Isabel have fantastic CS.
