    I'm loving my new FN 40. I'd like to use it for duty however I can't find a reasonable duty holster. Is anybody aware of one that accepts the FN 40 w/ an X200?

    With light will be difficult and I don't think there is one.

    I have a safariland 070 holster for the G17/22 that I gave to a friend of mine who carries an FN .40 cal on duty.

    It fit like a glove. Check those products for G17 / 22 that will fit your x200 light, and you just might find a match.

    I highly recommend against this.

    Agreed. In the event you need to re holster quickly, you won't be able to.

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    I wholeheartedly agree to not have your taclight separate from your duty gun if you are going to use it with the gun. You will not be able to deploy fast enough, reholster fast enough, find the clip when you take it off, etc. Ain't worth it.
