    FNH handguns?

    Looking for a little feedback, anyone have any feedback about this company?

    I'm looking at the FNP 45 as a carry gun. It's fully ambidextrous, which is important to me as I shoot with both hands, it's SA/DA which I like, and the price is right. It also comes with 3 14 rnd magazines, and has an optional 15 rnd magazine.

    Anything not to like here?

    I love mine. Carry it in a Pure Kustom holster. Very accurate and completely reliable. Very nice shooting gun.

    Here is a link about the company history.

    I have long admired the FN pistols. Most of what I have heard has been excellent, regarding function and reliability.

    If they made a pistol that was reliable and under 6" OAL in 9mm or better, I would be highly interested.

    Well established manufacture in Europe and have been selling guns in the US for a long time, don't own any myself but have friends with different assault style rifles and have heard no complaints.

    I have made up my mind on this one. I am getting the FNP 45 also. A little hesitant only because I have yet to put one in my hand and feel it. I have shot the FNP 40 and loved it. But I want the FNP 45 USG.

    All the research I have done, all the videos, reviews, etc. has pointed me to this firearm. Not only that, but the FNP 45 is going to be the militarys new standard issue pistol. Cant go wrong with this!

    Ok, I bit the bullet. No pun intended. I jogged down to the gun store and picked one up. I've been trying to figure out which 1911 style .45 to get for a long time, and this has a couple features that most of the other contenders don't, like the ambidextrous controls and SA/DA. And everyone that's used one has nothing but good things to say.

    I'll post more when I get to shoot it. Maybe I can get to the range for a bit tomorrow before work. If not, I have Thursday off... stay tuned...

    FN Herstal...is a European Comapny that includes Browning and Winchester. They are primarily known for their rifles and shotguns....but have made a splash lately into the duty/ccw market of handguns. And YES...they do produce the Hi-power. The 45 is kinda big but wiht an adequate holster and belt, and clothing. I am sure it will serve you well.

    Outstanding gun. Built like a tank by a company with a very rich history of firearms. Google them to be amazed. I love shooting mine!
    It's not a problem til they make it one!

    FNP-45 is my favorite firearm. But that might change next week. I might like my FNP-357 better!!

    Taurus PT709 Slim shown as size comparison. There's no way the FN is going in my pocket like the Slim.

    NO, its not a pocket pistol! Is that the 15rd mag? Good choice of firearms and your pretty lucky to have a firearm shop that can actually keep them in stock. We ordered some from FNH (we are a dealer) but the only ones we are getting in are already spoken for. They are selling like no other firearm in the shop! I have yet to put my hands on one to see how I like it. Cant wait to hear how yours shoots!

    Rocky, you just go ahead and enjoy that firearm!

    I put 200 rnds through it today. Only had one misfire, but with the DA, just squeeze again and it went bang.

    Extremely accurate. At 25 yds I had no problem keeping all 14 shots in the black ring. (And I'm not a particularly good shot) It's very smooth, a little more muzzle lift than with my 9mm pistols, and the recoil is almost the same. Quite a bit louder and deeper though.

    And 3 14 rnd magazines! That's almost a whole box of cartridges!

    Oh yeah, it's also extremely nice to be able to operate the gun totally with my left hand while shooting lefty. It's going to take some getting used to, but that alone is worth the price of admission.
