    I love the FNX & FNP lines.

    This too looks very promising.
    Were I lin Law Enforcement, I would carry one in a heartbeat.

    They need to make compact versions though for the average CCW bloke.

    At first glance I thought that the gun was a S&W M&P. It looks so very similar.

    I don't see that the gun really has any new unique features. From looking at the specs on the FN website, I'm confident that the pistol will fail. Its weighs 25 lbs with an unloaded magazine, which is way too heavy for any carry handgun. That alone will insure that it flops.

    Here are the specs on the gun from the FN website:

    Yeah, 25 lbs would be a show stopper for me ;)

    That seriously looks like an M&P copy. Sounds like FN got the message too!

    I like the FN-P and FN-X guns, and while some argue the SA/DA design is outdated, I think its still a nice feature to have. I think a lot of buyers who were turned off by that might seriously consider this FNS. Might even check one out myself ;)

    if you could get one for $400 out the door, would you buy it?

    not as a carry gun but more for range toy, plates & pins...IDPA stuff.
    and as a house gun and an additional teaching gun if your an instructor.


    i do think i've talked myself into it; and it will keep the shield company.
