I also prefer Kydex but I've gone back to shoulder holsters because carrying on the waist tends to be hard on my guns (for instance, yesterday I was ib waist deep snow, and there
always seems to be dirt, brush, bumping and banging) and this was about the only shoulder holster choice if you're going to attach a light. The tie downs are heavy nylon alligator type clips, like suspnder clips, that will bite on anything from zero to about 3/16" thick. I'll post a photo or two when I get a minute but if it requires photo bucket we might be out of luck. I will say that the FiveseveN is kinda big to conceal horizantally in any holster so I might set it up vertically but then it'd take me all day to draw the darn thing.

I recently bought a five seven and also ordered a comptac CTAC holster IWB, I've used Comptac minataur for another handgun so I knew the Comptac brand is excellent. The CTAC fits the five seven like a glove and is tuckable, also adjustable cant. Love my CTAC and Five Seven combo, does take a little getting use to if you carry full time. Will use the moleskin man made adhesive felt for backing to add a little extra comfort.

I'm going to be getting my concealed carry by the time summer rolls around and have been reading all the holster threads on here over and over. I keep coming back to the blackhawk serpa with the carbon fiber. One thing that is holding me back from getting this one is in more than one thread people have talked about their Five seveNs getting what they call the serpa kiss or a mark or scratch from the black hawk holsters. I was just wondering how many of you have actually got this and if you have any pics of how bad it actually is? My gun is no safe queen by any means but I Have been known take very very good care of all my guns...lol it bugs the crap out of some people that I do that. I know my truck won't go a month without me detailing it completely. Maybe I'm just a clean freak.

FYI THEY ARE NOT NEW.

One was fairly new and the other totally worn out. I am like WTF extra holster tried my 1911 in it but it fell out since this is made for the blocky Sig. Well then I tried my FsN and it fit perfectly.

Just a housekeeping note: I've moved some of the review type comments from the holster source thread over to the associated review thread (if there is one). If y'all notice a strange or missing comment, that is probably the reason.

Sorry Renegade, I somehow missed your post before. I checked their website & the FsN isn't listed on the "models supported" section. I can't put it on the list if we can't verify they make it. It says they may do custom work though :ponder:

I just got the Veridian belt holster for the fiveseven. There is a review on youtube panning the thing because you can't draw the firearm without two hands. Yes this is true, no quicks-draw-mcdraw in my future. Then again I don't need to pull a Barney Fife or like that dork that shot himself in the leg. I actually want a leg holster for woods walking.

Anyway, the real problem with the holster is that the holster is open on the end and about a half inch too short so the front sight (which is kind of high) sticks out the bottom and hooks on the holster. The holster is ok for my needs, which is really just to carry it in the woods but I would not trust it in a CCW situation.

I'm also trying to get a good horizontal shoulder rig out of Soft Armor. So far they are on attempt number three. There was no way the first two would come close to fitting the gun with the laser. Hopefully #3 will work which is on the way in the mail. The folks are Soft Armor have been very understanding. If you like shoulder rigs, they do a reasonable job, lots of adjustments and the price point is very good.

I also like the Battlestar Galactica holster from "The Vest Guy". If it would actually hold the fiveseven with a Veridian on it I would get one. I sent the company an email inquiring about it but it's been about a week with no reply. Either their email is not working or it's some little ma and pa part-time operation.

Anways, it is amazing at how little is available in the way of holsters with a laser/light. Most of the gun shops around here look like you grew a third eye right in front of them if you ask to see them.

We can make a kydex holster in over a dozen colors and patterns in any light comb you have on your FsN.

Center of Mass Holsters show an option for the Five Seven as well if you want to add that to the kydex section.
