    with me today. I couldn't pass up the price...it was $350 and came with 3-14round mags for 40S&W. I have seen the same pistols go for $500+, so another pistol is in my inventory. The store has 48 more FNP40s and a few FNP9s as well. It is the same place that had the used Steyr I posted...not that it matters, but I do not work for the gun shop...they just have some really good prices.215-343-3103. I plan on shooting it this Sunday, so I shall post a range report and pictures.

    Because I bought that Steyr M9, I can't afford to buy the only Glock I've come across that actually fits my hands! (2nd gen, I forget the model, .45acp, with the magwell, night sights, and lightning strike components, all for less then $500. It was a display model for years, so its almost un-used.

    I have owned a few glocks and I must say I never shot glocks very well. They take a beating, but if I cannot hit what I am aiming at...I will get something else. I have a G23c that I am selling because I have other 40s. The FNP is suppose to be really good...and you cannot beat the price.

    sounds like a decent deal.

    I just traded my S9 for an M40 but would still like to have a 9mm and might consider calling up that gunshop. I know nothing about FPNs. Any opinions on them?

    My buddy bought a FNP9 - it's a very good pistol - almost Steyr-like in value. Whenever I meet someone who wants a recommendation for a quality pistol that doesn't break the bank, I always recommend the Steyr M-A1 series and FNP's.

    I ran 100 rounds of CCI blazer brass through the FNP today...it shoot pretty well at 15 yards. I need to start bringing just one pistol to the range...I took the M9, CZ Compact and FNP. For $350 I find it to be a very good value. If you need more info...there are normally some threads on GT in the non-gt room. I am feeling a little lazy today, so no pics. The FNP reminds me a lot of Sigs...it is so simple to break down for cleaning.

    I actually sold my FNP to a friend...a week after I bought it...I have way too many weapons and I decided to consolidate my collection. Please don't think that I sold it because it wasn't reliable.
