Well I finally got to it. I got this FNP-9 at the 2006 Florida State match's raffle and I am in love with the darn thing. Lightweight polymer frame and steel slide it shoots like a dream and has an amazingly tame recoil compared to other full steel 9mm's. The first pull of the trigger is a delightful double action (compared to the monster truck pull from my Cougar) and a crisp single action pull. No safety, just a decoking lever and very decent and visible sights for a gun coming from an "European" designer. Removable backstrap comes in 2 sizes and they are secured with a screw.
I've shot some matches with the gun and it is a joy to handle. Accurate and dependable. I have shot mags of mixed ammo (from reloads to hollow points) and the gun can't tell the difference 'cause it ate them all without a hiccup.
The three mags come in 16 rounds unless you live in a State that is nono. It has become my carry piece.
And now the Holster. Greg, I bet you were waiting for me to eamil you back to see if I got the holster, but I decided to notify you here
The Holster is Greg Dunn's Evolution reinforced mouth with tension screw. He was kind enough to answer my desperate need for a holster tailored for the FNP-9 and patient enough not to tell me to take a hike with my constant harrasment and extra details I wanted.
I got the holster today 15 minutes before I had to leave for work. Whe I opened the box and saw it size I was impressed...horribly. I thought it was going to feel like I was carrying a saddle on my side! But I decided to test it real life in order to have real data and not just a visual impresion. I still cannot believe how darn confortable that holster is! Once I put it on and stuck the gun in, I had to make sure I was carrying my gun. The holster distributes the weight of the gun so nice that you can barely tell and I found myself doing the elbow-checking-for gun thing on my way to work. I am still getting used to the cant but nothing to worry about.
Greg, thank you and than you. it is a great holster.
