    Wondering how you guys (yes I realize it's a steyr crowd) relate the S9 to a FN compact?

    You mean the FNP-9 (same as Browning Pro-9)? If so, I have not held one but have heard good things about it. FN is located locally but have heard that they tend to alienate their civilian customers in favor of their leo/military contracts. Makes sense business-wise but sucks for us "lowly" customers. Their website(s) only rival SteyrUSA's in terms of non-functionality.

    Check General Non GLOCK firearms.
    Thread about it. Some are saying it is an awesome deal, just like the M9. I might get one. I like FN.

    Yup, thats the one. Not a bad deal but you don't get standard-cap mags. This same gun is available for $369 elsewhere with 3-16 round mags. I think CDNN gives you just 10-rounders.

    I recently found this gun and was amazed at how good the trigger is. The only thing that kept me from buying one was that I am not a fan of 9mms or .40s. I like the .357 Sig and went so far to call Bar-Sto to see if they made a replacement barrel in this caliber. No luck and apparently neither does anyone else. I would buy this gun if they offered it in the Sig or the .45 GAP. If you don't mind the caliber offerings, it appears to be well made.

    Hmm, I just mentioned that gun in a different thread (I should have come here first).

    I've handled the Browning version, and was impressed with the trigger pull, grip shape and control layout. Magazines should be interchangable between the FN's and Brownings; that should make it easier to find full-capacity mags. I think it'd be worth a try.

    Considering I LIKE to go to the range frequently and I don't have unlimited funds I'm just fine with 9mm or .40. And either one will hurt plenty if someone is unlucky enough to be hit by them.

    I too like to go to the range a lot and I don't have unlimited funds. .357 Sig is easy to come by and no more expensive than .40 S&W where I live and shoot. .45 GAP is admittedly a different story, but it might be worth the extra cost in this pistol. And the nice thing about the .357 and .45, they will more than hurt anyone unlucky enough to be shot by rither.

    See in my area .40 S&W is cheapish to find (WWB 15.97/100) whereas .357SIG I have to buy from a gun shop for about $12-14/50
