Is this it?

I'm not into FNH, but maybe Bud's could send the model you want to a local FFL?

Near as I can tell, FN doesn't make compact versions of their FNX series. I'm fairly certain that the same goes for the (now out of production) FNP series.

I've heard lots of good things about them (FNX series), and I'm sure they are quite good, functionally. However, after handling one, it just never "did it" for me. I simply didn't like the "feel." To be fair, it was a purely emotional & illogical opinion and not a "fair" or "objective" judgement by any means. But then I'm weird like that.

My lgs has one in FDE .45 with a factory threaded barrel. 15+1 45acp would chit on someone's day lol. I loved the ergos on it but all those 45s kinda made the grip a little uncomfortable for medium sized hands. I'd really like to shoot one though

Walther PPS??? Very thin and easily concealable. Great ergonomics. 9mm or 40 S&W for your preference. Reliable and well built. Worth a look.

You say their are issues you do not like about Glocks. They have a couple of grip finishes over the models, and gen 4 has adjustable backstrap sizes.

You can add a great safety, I use them, called A trigger block. Most folks hate them. Lol. So what, tens of thousands of us do like them, and use them to increase the safety of a Glock pistol.

No other handgun has the track record of dependability over army's, police departments, and government agencies. Freeze it in a block of mud, toss it off a three story roof, pull it behind a truck on a log chain on a gravel road for miles, they still shoot.

I would find a Glock shooters class and sign up. You already have the perfect gun, you just need to realize that.

My second best relationship of over twenty years, Glock.

O, and my first Glock is not pissed off, if I bring home other Glocks. In fact, they all sleep together, and invite me to come play with them. Can't beat a deal like that!

Holy crap your fanboy is showing..Zip that back up...
Do you hear yourself? Glocks are great if you just change the trigger and the grip and ...and...and...At least most other guns mods yo u can actually buy them that way. Just keep hammering. That square peg will get it's corners shaved off and for that round hole
If you actually like it fine, but you apparently don't and that's why to make it into another pistol. Kind of messed up logioc. Glocks are fine as is...If you like that kind of gun. If you don't...Then get something different.
It's like meeting a girl and getting her a boob job before you can
date her.

To the OP..Go to a few gun shops. Get your hands on as many DIFFERENT pistols as you can. You will find one that fits.

Trigger pulls can be changed but if you're not comfortable with the lack of active safety then I would try the m&pC line. Great platform and they are available with a thumb safety
