    I have both the FNP-40 and FNP-9M, both have been flawless and have very nice triggers. My only complaint would be for concealed carry the decock levers stick out a bit.

    Have the FNP-45 & 40 lots of features, very accurate, will shoot all brands of ammo, and built like a tank. Never talked to anyone that had any trouble with one. :thumbup:

    You may check this site:

    I can say I owed one for 24hr. Never fired it. But wanted an M4 too bad and so it had to go. Will rectify that ASAP. :)

    I also own a P229 so they begged a comparison. Similar guns, but at a fraction of the cost of a Sig. Only the decock lever felt a little weird. Guess once you get used to it, it is a non-issue.

    FNP's are great guns. I have one in 40 and 45 and my sister carries one in 9mm.

    For the longest time, FNP's were the best kept secret in the pistol world. A couple of years ago when FN was forcing dealers to buy their "Stocking Dealer" package in order to buy PS90's and FS2000's, dealers were unloading them cheap and you could pick up a brand new one for about $340. I paid $300 for my FNP 40 and I wish I had bought more of them :(

    If you shop hard you can still sometimes find one that someone is willing to let go for cheap but it's getting harder now that the word is out on them.

    As everyone has already expressed It's a nice pistol. I have a FN-40 and had it for almost two years with out a ftf and it eats what ever I feed it.

    The only issues I have had is finding a holster I like for CC. Any suggestions IWB or OWB, I prefer leather.

    I use a Galco OWB slide holster for my G-22 found that my FNP-40 fits in it just as well. For IWB I'm finding that the CrossBreed supertuck is my favorite holster. Kydex on leather, but pretty easy on the finish of your pistol.

    Good for you parsons, the FN9 will be a nice range gun to go with your carry .45 but burrrr! 11 deg. bet it was a quick shoot. :D
