    I just bought an FNP 9 (4 inch barrel, da/sa, black finish) for $350 on Gunbroker.com. $20 for shipping and handling and $20 for the FFL and I am spending $390 for NIB with 3 16 rd mags. The price was just too good to pass up. After reading what people say about these guns on this forum, I had to take the plunge. Unfortunately, I will have to wait 3 weeks till I return to Iowa to pick up the piece from my FFL. Nonetheless, happiness is getting a new handgun!!

    I have the Glock 23, which is basically the Glock 19 in .40 S&W, and I just bought the FNP 40. I've only taken the FNP to the range once, but I am more accurate with it out of the box than I am with the Glock after several thousand rounds. Much more comfortable to shoot and I like the DA/SA trigger in order to have the gun decocked while carrying. SA trigger is nice. A little lighter than the Glock trigger and much less stacking before the break. The feed angle on the FNP is almost straight in, so it feeds very slickly and gives every impression of being as reliable as the Glock. Too soon to tell how durable it will be, but it appears to be very well made.

    Having said all that, my Glock after several thousand rounds still looks almost new. Glocks are very reliable and durable weapons. I just don't like shooting them.

    I've owned 4 Glocks since 1993 - and I just never got into the trigger either - I finally sold my last one in Feb and gave up on them - Just not for me, personally...

    Question on the FNP:

    I'm thinking about getting either an FNP, HK, Px4, or Walther P99.

    I was at the store last night eye balling an FNP and P99 and as I was racking the slide on the FNP, I noticed it was very finicky on locking the slide back with an empty magazine in.

    It seemed like it wasn't a solid lock on the slide and it was very touchy. There were a couple of times that it didn't lock back when I pulled the slide back.

    Has anybody seen or had issue with the FNP not locking the slide back when the magazine is empty?

    Anyway, I liked the grip on the P99 better. I liked the material surface better and the size of the grip. But the FNP seems like a sweet gun and I like the way it looks. I've heard good things about the triggers too, but they had locks on all the triggers.
