I'm going to purchase a Panther IWB holster for my FNS9C. They make several variations. Any thoughts as to which is best?

"Best" is in the eye of the beholder, but you knew that. :grin

For me, I like the Standard IWB since it offers the most slim design and I can adjust it for minimal cant. The F-series has too much cant for my tastes. I haven't tried the Legacy.

As BH stated,"best" is in the eye of the beholder. ALL my Panthers are F-Series, as I really appreciate the ability to adjust cant.

I have an FNS9 that gets carried OWB in a Panther, but it is full size and I carry all of my full size pistols OWB. Of course this is my opinion and one should take caution following my lead:grin

Family of Panthers at my home, G21 Glock in Panther not pictured. The Sig P250SC is carried IWB.

It looks like it carries pretty high. How do you dress to hide the stocks?

For business reasons, it needs to be carried iwb. I've already got a Panther owb for other situations.
I personally use the standard IWB due to wearing at 3-4 o'clock position, if you wear it more toward the back you may want more cant. I think if you get the F series it will afford you lots of adjustment room to keep you from having buyers remorse.

AD, as to how high the holster and gun ride, my Sig P250SC in a standard Panther IWB rides low enough to where the edge of grip rides just above top of belt and the rest is all tucked in like a BUG in a rug, see what I did there?

This is why the F-Series works for me. I wear it at about 4:00, and with a little can't the grip disappears under a T-shirt, Polo shirt or un-tucked button up shirt. No special cover garment needed.

:grin Exactly my experience, Vinny! :thumsup

One of my IWB is an F-Series that came with another P229 I purchased in a private sale. I converted it to remove almost of the cant because that's how I carry, but otherwise it rides the same as my other Standard IWB models, and if I ever need to wear it more around 4:00-4:30 on the waist, I can always put the cant back in. :dancingbanana

Yes, I do have thoughts. An F-Series, a straight-drop, and an OWB. :grin

The F-Series give you more cant and concealability, the straight-drop gives you a lower profile. What's more important to you?

(I believe you'd stated you already had the OWB.)

But the difference is negligible as far as concealability goes. It's really about cant.
Do you need more than 5°?

Yes, in my OWB holsters I carry at about 15 degree in the 3:00 o-clock position.
