    Fnp 40

    After firing more than 500 rds through this weapon I am very impressed by it's reliability and accuracy. No failures of any kind and a joy to shoot.
    My son, an Army Captain, Company Commander and West Point grad, recently returned from Afghanistan and is scheduled to be redeployed in a about six months. When he mentioned that he was looking for a handgun I recommended the FNP 40. He said he was very familar with the quality of FN weapons since they make many of the Army issued weapons.
    When he comes in town next week for leave we are going to the range to help him decide between a SIG and the FNP. Both are excellent weapons and he would go with 9mm or 45acp (when the FNP 45 becomes available).
    As you can imagine, I'm a proud Dad!!

    You got every right to be a proud Dad and besure you thank him for his service to our great country. We are proud of him too.
    The FN is a fine weapon that a lot of shooters over look. The people I know that have them hold them in high regards. Good luck with yours.

    Army Captain, Company Commander and West Point grad? Talk about impressive! I have a tremendous amount of respect for all of the brave men and women fighting for our country, and I too would like to thank your son for his service.

    I've read good things about the FNP (9mm), and I was considering it for myself until I read about the trigger weight (12 lbs double action/5 + single action), and that it isn't (according to the author of the article) a target-grade trigger. He suggested the FNP 9 & 9M were exceptional weapons, but weren't directed to be used against paper targets.

    For myself, I'm looking for a good target-grade 9mm. The Sig 228 I fired functioned beautifully - and I was never more accurate with another handgun. Pricey, but I would certainly make the buy if I could afford it.

    Rasko501,
    Thanks for the compliments about my son.
    He has been home on leave for the last week and we have had a very good visit. He says his unit will be redeployed soon so we are making the most of his visit.
    He is also a SIG fan and is looking at a P220, 226 or 228.
    The double action pull on my FNP 40 is indeed "stout" but I like the single action pull. I agree it is not a paper puncher out of the box but I hope it will smooth out the more I shoot it.

    One of my coworkers has the 9mm version. It has a very nice feel to it, but I have yet to shoot it. They seem like a nicey put together pistol.

    I have the 9mm version and it seems like you could shoot all day long
    without tiring. It's a good looking gun too, one of the few polymer guns
    that doesn't resemble Darth Vader's garden hose attachment. I have seen
    several recent Gunbroker auctions with buy now prices of $350-$375, get it
    home for $400 to $425.

    I agree - it is a great gun. If I didn't already have so many polymer 9mms, I'd get one. BUt I already have 2 other FN weapons now - so, I'm covered

    Has anyone shot this and the PX4 .40? If so what are the major differences?
