any practical gear to carry the fnx45t with the suppressor attached?
i'm thinking about carrying it in the woods. concealment is not a requirement.
"tactical" thigh holster could work. maybe a custom designed kydex? but it'd be like taking a golf club out of a bag.

I was thinking about doing something like this. Basically get a 90 picatinny rail for the pistol.

Then go over to S&S and get their weapon link adapter for picatinny rails.

And now you can have your silencer attached and not have to worry about pulling it up super high to get it out of the holster.

I hate leg mounted anything. Thats a lot of mass when you have to run jump dive or climb, also hard to get access when you side prone injured laying ontop of it. id go sideways chest mount.

jeremy,
that seems like a neat idea. i tried searching for a video review without much success.
from the following picture i can't tell if it's free to rotate or what:

but it looks like it can.

You're not going to be able to carry a suppressed pistol on your chest... unless you want to lose much use of one of your arms.

If I'm hunting legally in my state with a concealed firearm the last thing I'm going to worry about is a suppresser, back in about 95 we had a serial killer targeting hunters, and a friend of mine Jamie Paxton was killed while walking out of the woods after archery hunting and was killed by this psychopath only to be know later that he lie in wait for me and two of my friends after fishing in a strip pit in the same area as we saw his vehicle sitting behind are vehicle down on the dirt road, we waited till dark till it left before going down to leave. After this experience it forever changed my way of thinking. If I take a shot, it will be a good shot, I do not in any way need to conceal my position. Thomas Dillon killed his M,F, self in prison, to FN bad. hope it didn't hurt to bad ! :th_sign0150: MYRIP

That...is...by far one of the wildest recounts I have read on here. Sorry to hear about your friend.

I'm sure you can rig up a chest carry easily. If people can hunt with a 15" T/C Encore handgun in a chest rig a suppressed pistol can't be much different.

Myg21 is sideways on my plate carrier. How long is your suppressor?
I have an Osprey 45. Adds 8". You might be able to do something vertical or something like the safari chest holster, but not horizontal.

The only pistol I carry suppressed is my M&P 22 with my Sparrow. Modded a kydex belt holster to allow the suppressor to fit through, but I still can't sit down with the suppressor attached.
