    Fnp9

    I got a chance to play w/ one at my shop the other day and I have to say that I really like it.
    IMHO it grips close to if not better than the xd. I cant help but to think it feels like a sig with a better grip. It has great controls and point dead on for me.
    Before yall kick-start your flamethrowers, remember I said "IMHO."
    I have not shot it yet, and I'm having trouble finding any kind of Neutral based reviews of it.
    If anyone has had any experience with it please let me know.
    My main concerns are the Accuracy, durability,and finish.
    I need it to shoot better than I can, not rust, and be trustworthy of my life!
    Does anyone know of any duty holsters for it?? safariland, Serpa, bueller, bueller??

    I think the FNP9 is one of the finist weapons I have ever owned,
    It is second to none. Accuracy,Durability,Finish , are great . Reliability is one of the first things on my list, and the FNP9 seems to have it all.
    As for holsters the HK compact will fit. I have got rid of leather and went with the Blackhawk Ambidextrous Flat belt holster {velcro}. With this holster I can carry anything from a 1911 to 2" revolver and is very comfortable for ccw.

    Yes, I have played w/ one at a gun show, and was amazed at how smooth the DA trigger was. If I didn't have 6 polymer guns already, or my HK USPc, I think I would buy one...

    Wow, that is awesome news. I'm glad to hear that they work as good as they look. Do you know if the serpa for the compact will work?
    Thanks for the speedy responses

    I've seen them closer to the $400 mark at gun shows - CDNN also has a special on them as well.

    Hi to every one !! I just picked one up for $437 out the door. Havent shot it yet. But if its as good as every one says I'll be a happy camper. I picked it up to go with the SA M-7 Carbine I just picked up last month. They look good togather.

    Here it is.



    I like my black guns. I hope the FN P9 shoots as good as my SA M-7!
    I'll be very happy.

    The FNP pistols are quite nice. For awhile I've wanted a FNP-40, but recent developments have shifted my desire to the new FNP-45. Hopefully they will be available and reasonably priced.

    Hello. I recently purchased an FNP9. So far, it has been 100% reliable and shoots better than I expected. If it might be of use, here are some range observations, etc:

    Best.

    I bought one to replace the Taurus 24/7 Pro I sold. I must say, it far exceeded my expectations. This is a DAMN FINE handgun. The trigger is smooth and the de-cocker is a snap. As for accuracy, it is as accurate as my most accurate guns, ie. BHP,SIG 226, SA 1911 and my S&W 39 and 4563TSW.
    I would highly recommend an FNP 9 to anyone interested in a polymer handgun.
    TOP NOTCH!

    I have had my FNP-9 for about one year. It is 100% reliable so far. It weighs only one ounce more than the Glock 19, which is the same weight as the Glock 17 so carries very comfortably.

    The double action first shot trigger pull is quite light and the ergonomics are fantastic....recoil feels very light. With the flat grip adapter it fits my small hand well also.

    Both the silver (bare metal) and black slides are stainless, as is the barrel, so no worries about rust.

    The gun is fantastic and the answer to my dreams for a lightweight da/sa style, hi-cap, lightweight carry gun

    Well I got to shoot mine and I am very much in love with this gun!!
    I think this is it! No more looking around for a good hand gun. This one does every thing I wont it to do and then some.

    I dont know about you guys but I think this gun shoots better than I do!
    This trigger is so nice. Well lets just say I have had some plastic hand guns and this one takes the cake.

    I have the tu tone FNP 40 version and love this handgun.
    Very accurate and feeds everything I have put in it so far.
    Comes with three 14 round magazines.
    Many of the holsters for the HK compact will fit this weapon. (not all)
    FNs are quality firearms but relatively unknown to many people.
