Never seen it w/o full dress. Sights are set high as are the hopes of suppressor. I rather like the idea of dual sights, RMR has possibilities.

I personally like the ergonomics of the FN better but they are both solid guns. Are you pressing the gun into a defensive weapon? If so, I would lean toward the Springfield line as the triggers don't break as easily as the FN... This might sound counter intuitive but the idea is to prevent a user from firing before identifying his target. A consistent trigger pull is important in this role too. Imagine someone breaks into your house... Your first shot on the FN is a double action shot... that is... the trigger pull is longer and tougher than a single action... Subsequent shots will be single action. Many people have reported it is easy to squeeze off excess rounds due to this change in a situation where adrenaline is soaring... Could be hard to make a case in court should things come to that when a bad guy leaves your home with 4 holes in him instead of 1 or 2... For plinking and target practice I like the single action... Lower bore axis of the FN is nice too...

The Xd series are fine guns, no doubt.

But they're certainly not in the same league as FN.

That would be like trying to compare an H&R to a S&W.

Thank you all for your input!
I went with the FNP9. Can't wait to hit the range and try it out after I pick it up.

Looking forward to it. They make a good pistol.
