    QUICK! Help me made the right Decision.. M&Pc & FNP9

    Ahh. So I have been contemplating selling my FNP9. I bought it on a whim and I really havent clicked with it like I have some guns. I put it up for sale and got a bite. Basically I will be able to go buy a new M&P9c for equal price. What do you guys think?

    The M&P meets a lot of my criteria. Its possible for me to carry year round in FL. By running a stubby magazine all year then switch to a full-size magazine with a X-Grip in winter when I can hide it better. There is a ton of aftermarket support for M&P unlike the FNP. And lastly they make a pink grip so my other half can use it when Im not.

    But I do like the way the FNP looks. Its just pretty. GIve me your opinions!

    I've been carrying the 40c for several years and find it to be a good shooter and quite comfortable. Also, its American made.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    Thanks. I have been looking at the 40c as well. 9mm just cuts some cost since its what I carry. Have you dont any modifications to it like the APEX trigger?

    Try the XD9 sub compact. I would count it as a worthy competitor in this market. You may not like it but until you look at it you won't know!

    Glock 19....LOL

    Seriously though of the two you have listed the 9c would be my choice. The FNP seems so big and bulky to me. I am sure they are good due to being an FN product. 9c would be the way on this one.

    I'd go the the 9c. If for no other reason, there is a ton of support for the gun now.

    M&P

    Just bought a 9c. Also have a full size M&P 9. the 9c is just as accurate and easy to shoot as the full size. M&P's fit my hand. I am happy with both of them.

    Also considered the xdm compact but thought the M&P was a better fit for me.

    Both would have suited my purpose but the M&P just felt right. Either is a good choice.

    Which feels right to you? Pick that one.

    +1 to Jemmy. I have a full size M&P 9, a full size M&P 40 and a 9c. I owned an FNP 40 but traded it in to buy the M&P 40. I also owned a Glock 23 that I did not like at all.

    I can't say anything bad about the FNP, but I think that the M&P is the best pistol in its class on the market today. Its the pistol that I am most comfortable shooting and carrying. The only other style pistol that competes, IMO, is my 1911.

    Get the 9c. Mine shoots as accurately and comfortably as the full size guns, has a 12 round mag and will accept the 17 round full size mags. You can carry with the compact mag in the gun and a full size mag as a spare. The 9c is my EDC now.

    An indicator of how good a firearm is, can be how many big contracts it has to large organizations. I can think of many police departments that have the M&P, but haven't heard of a single large contract for the FN pistols. And when there are large contracts for a type of pistol, there is going to be a larger support base of aftermarket gear.

    Just a thought.
