Hot on the heels of announcing a brand new holster fit for FN Herstal’s FNX-45 Tactical, New York-based holster manufacturer DeSantis Gunhide, a division of HELGEN Industries Inc., has now unveiled a product availability for the F/N HERSTAL FNS-9 & FNS-40: the Thumb Break Scabbard and Speed Scabbard. See a brief description of each of these below, taken from DeSantis’ website, for an idea of what these holsters offer the end user.

Thumb Break Scabbard

The firearm rides high and is presented at an optimum draw angle with this holster. Its thumb break and exact molding, together with a tension device, allows for a secure and highly concealable carry. Belt slots are 1 3/4″ wide. Available in black or tan leather, with or without suede lining, plain or basket-weave finish. Retail price for plain is $72.99.

Speed Scabbard

The holster is designed to meet the needs of plain-clothes professionals preferring a holster without a thumb break while still providing firearm retention. This is accomplished with precise molding and tension screw device on most models. Available in black or tan unlined leather. Belt slots are 1 3/4″ wide. Retail price is $72.99.
