    Steyr M9, XDM 5.25 or FNP 9

    hello all,
    I am looking to get a range toy/nightstand gun and I've narrowed my choices down to the Springfield Armory XDM competion series, the Steyr M9 and the FN Herstal FNP 9.
    which would you choose and why is it your first choice?

    I have an FNP 9 and an XD 40 service. They are both excellent guns with excellent ergos. I keep the XD handy as that is what I have trained the most with and has the least amount of process to go through before going bang! However, The FNP has the decock option which makes it a DA first pull with an SA until empty and that trigger is excellent. Shoot them both and see what you like best.

    I am looking at the FNX9 as my next 9mm, I like the DA/SA trigger.

    I have an FNP-9 and FNP-40. Awesome guns.
    I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".

    The Steyer is a nice gun but there is no aftermarket for them. Steyer has stopped importing them into the US. if you break a part expect to pay top dollar to fix it. Also holsters and accessories will be tough to find.

    The XD 5.25 is a no go for me too. All the good rounds in that caliber are illegal to own.

    This leaves the FNP9, a nice gun in a popular caliber with plenty of support here in the USA. This choice is a no brainer.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    I don't think your info regarding steyr is accurate or up to date.
    steyr has been importing again for more than a year and there is more demand for these guns than there are guns, new ones are out there but they are few and far between. The support for the gun is top notch and anything that could break is easily and quickly repaired.the biggest issue with the steyr is the lack of after market goodies, which really may not be a bad thing.
    The FN is a fine weapon but so is a steyr and if you are a glock person you can think of a streyr as glock 2.0 or the perfection that glock aims for
