Always wanted to get some carry use from the FNP-9 but have not made the leap into the sea of confusion, retrofits, and high dollar rigs.

I ordered an Alien Gear 2.0 IWB (they have a 30 day trial period) if it doesn't work out send it back.
This holster is similar to a few IWB types like Crossbreed. There are a few options I like with this one. Retention screws for the shell, they will swap a shell one for one if you change guns, very good warranty and vast selection of guns.

So far so good. have been wearing around the house to get used to it. The only down side is it is a little difficult to re holster as the back side closes in on the shell somewhat. I took some of the tension off the shell tension screws and had to keep in mind the pair of jeans I had on were about the tightest I have & I can stand to loose 5 pounds. If you check some youtube reviews, there are some pretty stout haters out there. Is it perfect? maybe not so much, but seems adequate for the price point, features and benefits. As of now, I will most likely not be using the 30 day return policy. Just tossing out here for a potential option that may be a good fit for someone.

I have several from Alien Gear and enjoy all of them and with their price point and warranty I can easily deal with the ever so slight difficulty in the very occasional need to re-holster (it has the same issue that ALL soft backed IWB holsters deal with to some degree). Honestly if your having to re-holster a firearm multiple times a day you either need to be using a different carry method to address the reason or you live/work in the wrong places!

The guy I got my FNP-9 from sent a Crossbreed Supertuck with it. I have an Alien Gear for my 1911. I prefer the Crossbreed, but it's also at least twice the price (the one I have is horsehide and came with all the different IWB hooks). It's easier to holster than the AG and the leather is thinner as is the kydex which helps it fit in my pants a little better. I cut a lot of the kydex and leather off my AG holster and heated it up to form it to my body better, but I've also removed a fair bit of leather from the Crossbreed as well.

They both work, but the Crossbreed works better for me, but I'm not sure the extra money is worth it.
