First Look: CrossBreed Holsters for the FN 503

posted on March 23, 2020

CrossBreed Holsters is now producing holsters to fit the new FN 503. The FN 503 is the company’s first single-stack pistol designed for concealed carry. Crossbreed worked with FN for months prior to the release of the 503 and now has a wide range of options available for the new slim-profile handgun. 

Crossbreed made its reputation with high-quality Kydex/leather holsters. From traditional strong side carry to appendix carry to outside the waistband, Crossbreed has a variety of holsters and gear that works with the FN 503, including: 

  • Hybrid MT2 Holster
  • SuperTuck
  • MiniTuck
  • The Reckoning
  • Freedom Carry
  • Appendix Carry
  • SnapSlide
  • DropSlide
  • SuperSlide
  • Ohai Modular Holster

If a holster on the belt line isn't your preference, CrossBreed also has a number of holsters for alternate carry positions for the FN 503, including Modular Belly Band, Purse Defender, Cargo Pocket Rocket, Ankle Holster, and more.  

CrossBreed makes many different magazine pouches and accessories to make sure FN 503 has the ammo it needs, including the Gideon Pocket Mag Carrier, OWB Mag Carrier, Tuckable IWB Magazine Carrier, Purse Defender Magazine Carrier and Pac Mat Magazine Carrier. 

In addition to this, CrossBreed Holsters also has Limited Edition Kydex options for The Reckoning Holster available only in March. Shooters can choose from holsters with either HexCam Adirondack or Kryptek Highlander Kydex designs, while supplies last.

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.
