    Does anyone own one of these? Thought or impressions. Just the standard fnx 45 (not tactical)

    I've been carrying and shooting the FNP 45 for a couple of years now. Like it a lot and wouldn't change though I've shot about every make and model over the years. Read that the FNX is the new and improved FNP, but after reading the description of improvements, I doubt I would even notice them. A fine weapon.

    I've got an FNX 40 and love it. Great shooting gun, very easy and comfortable to handle.

    I have the FNS and FNX in the 9 platforms. Really enjoy shooting them.

    The fnp-45 and the fnx are pretty much the same gun.

    Thanks for the info...I bought an FNX 45 in FDE off the net (arrives Tuesday)....bought largely off the reviews. For the two owners...what did you do for a holster?!

    Matt,

    My FNP 45 holster is a nicely made leather by Tagua in Paraguay, doesn't have a model marked but it was made for the FNX 45 specifically. A nice rig.

    Get on the FN Forums. All the info you need is there. I am looking for one right now. If you are interested in a two-tone with silver slide, PM me and I'll tell you where one is at a good price. If anyone sees one of these in black or FDE, PLEASE TELL ME!

    I have a FNX and FNS in 9mm already. Northwest had a black x45 in stock a couple days ago. Or I will sell you mine in 9mm

    Thanks. They're turning up in several places lately, but I scratched my itch with an HK45 instead.
