    Any Opinion on FMK?

    I took a gander at one of the 9mm FMK pistols the other day. You know, the one with the Amendments engraved all over it. Appears to be designed "much" like a Glock 19. Same sort of take down lever, trigger safety, size, shape, etc. The one thing that really caught my attention tho was the grip. Soooo much better than the square block grip of the Glock. Slide seems to run nice and smooth on the rails also, and the price was only $349.

    Anyone had the opportunity to shoot one of these, or have one?

    I kinda liked what I saw, and love the grip vs the glock.

    Never heard of it, never seen one in person. I just now saw their website when I looked it up. So....hard to say. Made in U.S.A. sounds good. I bet holsters would be a challenge.

    According to their site it's got a mag disconnect. It also says Mass. Approved. Doesn't MA require a crazy heavy trigger?

    It looks like they're more proud of having a firearm covered in slogans than proud of having built a nice firearm.

    I would think that it would fit the same holsters that fit a Glock 19. I didn't try the trigger but it seemed like a well made firearm. Well one thing about a mag disconnect. It'll stop you from chambering a round, dropping the mag, then pulling the trigger and shooting yourself. That seems to be everybody's favorite way. I don't have a big issue with mag disconnects.

    Mag disconnects can be useful, but I don't prefer them on my weapons. Mag disconnect can be useful for weapon retention

    I don't intend on shooting my gun with the mag out anyhow. Might have to, but in most cases, not. Mag disconnects are a good safety feature I think, because this is how many ND's happen, when someone chambers a round prior to ejecting the mag, then pulls the trigger. I think if they all had this safety feature, there would be fewer ND's from this type of scenario.

    Another gizmo to go bad in order to correct a problem that exists because of negligence. If you practice the 4 rules of safety, you don't have ND's. The best safety on a gun is that which is between your ears. Do we make mistakes, yes, but if you keep your damn finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot, if you've identified your target and what's behind it, if you never point your gun at anything you aren't willing to destroy and if you treat every firearm as if it were loaded you won't have a ND. Firearms safety is your responsibility, NOT the other guy's. OK, I'll get off the soapbox and take a deep breath or two :)
