I'm eliminating the FNP45 because it's too hard to get magazines. Sold out and not backorderable on many websites. Crazy $50+ price where it is in stock.There's even many rumors that the FNP45 is going to be discontinued soon. FN has already launched an FNX model for 9mm and 40 and the rumor is that FNX45 will soon replace the FNP45. FNP45 is more expensive, crazy magizine prices and possibilty of being replaced soon eliminates it.

For now, I'm narrowed down to the remaining 2 standing. Looking forward to the gunshow where my eyes will be especially pealed for an XDm 45 for under $600.

Sad to hear that about the FNP 45 because I bought the tactical version last month and love it. To think that finding a holster has been difficult, yikes!

Yes, holsters were also hard to figure for the FN. Their shooter's pack is $70.

I've actually narrowed in down to 1 now. I contacted a dealer I've bought from before and he's going to bring a XDm 45 for $585 to the gunshow next weekend. That includes (with the special offer) 5 magazines, holster, 2 pouches all for $585 plus tax. I get pretty much what I was looking for. Great price, magazines all with 13 capacity. The trigger also breaks as a SA since it's always fully cocked. So, I get "almost" what I wanted in SA/DA.

That 22 handgun might get purchased at the gunshow as well in addition to the XDm. GSG 1911 is what I'll be on the lookout for. Threaded barrel Ruger is also being considered.

Hoping my fever will cool down. I doubt I'll ever have a spree like 2011 has been. I've doubled my collection all this year and added a CCW permit and gun lockers, plus stockpiled a much beter stash of ammo all this year. =)

Nothing like a firearm shopping spree fever....I'm looking for an M1 carbine, an semi auto pistol as a back-up ccw, and a 12 gauge. There is a gun show here in Atlanta Oct 1 weekend, I may find that carbine there.
Speaking of the FNP tactical I met a guy who said he can build or modify bolsters to fit it but only side bolsters. I'm think now that I want to carry it thigh tactical or under the shoulder. I'm gonna keep it cause it's a nice shooting pistol.

Get another 1911. A wise man once said that you can never have too many 1911's.

Went to the SGK gun show today. I got both the XDm 45 Auto for $585 & Ruger 22/45 22LR for $319. The CCW permit worked to pass over the 30 day limit law in Virginia. I think this may do it for my 2011 firearm shopping spree.

Today, I also picked up a shoulder harness holster, some winter shooting gloves, Golden Saber 230 grain 45 ACP ammo and a magazine pouch.

On the Ruger, I replaced the 1911 grips with all-black replacements...

Good for you - I've got a beretta Buckmark .22LR with a Leupold Scope on top - the most fun I've ever - EVER - had with a gun.... I've shot the Ruger 22lr and really liked it too...the angle of the grip is magic for me...I don't even look down the sites - just pull the trigger like pointing a mouse and blam - can't miss...amazing. Noticed you've got the threaded barrel option - He he
