    FNP9 owners - have a question for you

    123
    I really like the FNP9 and I have a question for those that own one. I heard from a review the decocker is very sensitive and when shooting your thumb can engage it. Is this true? I have small/medium size hands so I'm not sure if it would pertain to me. Thanks.

    It has never happened with my FNP45. Don't let your thumb ride the decocker. This could be the problem. If not, it needs to be addressed by FN. Good luck.

    A lot of experienced 1911 SA shooters will put their shooting thumb on top of the safety of a 1911 SA. Doing the same on a FNP will possibly decock the FNP when shot.

    Whenever I shoot any SA pistol, I maintain as high a grip as possible. But my thumb always tucks under the controls. So I've never experienced the problem you described with my trusted FNP-9.

    If you really "like the FNP-9" get one. Its pluses far outweigh its minuses. Or I wouldn't be carrying it.

    The only problem I ever had was transitions from shooting my Hi power where I ride my thumb on the safety while I shoot. My thumb sees the little lever on the FNP and says "oh boy there is my nice seat to sit down on." Now that I've taught my thumb the difference between a safety and a decocker we haven't had any more issues.

    Seriously though, just don't shoot with a high thumb.

    My wife and I have fired thousands of rounds through her FNP-9. Never had a de-cocker issue. Never had any issue whatsoever. Sounds like internet BS has struck again.

    The FNP and FNX are good-to-go.
