      Nice looking gun. I just recommended the 9mm version on another thread. I have read all good things about the gun, and have held one a few times at gun shows. Very nice DA trigger pull. As I said before - if I didn't already have 6 polymer handguns, I'd probably get one

      So...what does it do that existing .45 designs don't? The FNP 9mm/.40 design doesn't do anything that seven or eight other designs don't do as well or better.

      Have U ever shot it? I haven't, but hear no neg things about it. As I said before, if I wasn't full of plastic guns, I'd probably pick one up. If I didn't just "have to have" a USP compact, I probably would have picked up one of these.

      By your reasoning there should be no Ford, GM, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota, etc. to choose from.
      My FNP9 fits me very well. It is as good in quality as guns I tried costing hundreds more. Also, I was wanting to purchase a gun made in the U.S.(NC) . After alot of shooting it came down to an XD or FNP, made in the U.S. finalized mt decision. I will be looking forward to shooting one at the Mfg.shoot at my local range this spring. If I like it, I will probably buy it.(and keep it in my Ford, built in Kentucky)

      It holds 14 rounds, for one.

      Pardon me while I stifle that yawn from this old thread.

      HK USP/MK23: 13 rounds
      Glock 21: 14 rounds
      Springfield XD: 14 rounds
      Para-Ordnance P14: 14 rounds
      Taurus 24/7: 13 rounds

      A double stack .45 is hardly an innovation. Most of the above pistols have been around for years.

      Heh heh, you got me! I hit the wrong key. Correction: Springfield XD: 14 rounds!

      Thanks, Jeff.

      I can't belive I started this thread over a year ago. I wish FN would get off their asses and release the damn thing. My interest peaked a while back, but I would still like to get my hands on one. I really like my FNP9, so I have high hopes for the 45.

      Must be tough to be so cynical.

      I guess I should have added that it'll probably be cheap, as opposed to the HK and Para; will be made in the good ol' USA, as opposed to Croatia, Germany, Austria or Brazil; will have a safety and decocker, as opposed to the Glock and XD; not be as ugly as a pig's ass, as opposed to everything mentioned except the HK and Para, and it will not be a Taurus.

      It's nice to have options when shopping for firearms and the FNP-45 is just another choice. If it's not your cup of tea, so be it. You can certainly feel free to get back to your nap.

      A firearm needn't be innovative to be extraordinary.

      It'd be nice if they come out pretty soon. I've been looking forward to giving FN the money that would've gone to Beretta.

      At least we know that that FN is "stacking FNP-45s to the ceiling." Maybe they need to fill the warehouse before they can sell them.

      At the end of Oct 2007, at our usual FN rep question session at the Fn Forum - the rep stated that the FNP 45 would be out in Nov 07. November isn't over yet - so maybe there is hope. But, it looks like it may have been pushed back again. We'll see.

      Look at the HK45 - that took forever. Beretta still hasn't released their PX4 45.

      Things take time.

      I was (and am) jonesin' for a FNP9 but the .45 looks equally as desirable.
      Hmmm may have to get both.

      Last I heard was "mid-January", however I do know that the latest LE pricing states "1st quarter of 2008". I'm hoping for mid-January.

      Correction, the FNP45 is a 14 round magazine - so 14+1=15 rounds.
