Default Any FNH fans?

If so, I'm looking to buy either the FNP 9mm or the .45.

Aside from which caliber is better, anyone have a should/shouldn't?

I like the way they look and feel, but unfortunately I've never shot one. There are plenty who own them, just wait.

Shot the .45 cal. It's a nice gun. It's not my cup of tea, but it's a good offering.

I have an FNH shotgun that has performed flawlessly and is quality from stock to front sight.

If it fits your hand well, and you can reach all the controls, then consider it. Shoot it a couple of times and see what YOU think.

What we think is irrelevant if the gun isn't comfortable to you.

I've owned the FNP 9mm before and loved the way it felt and shot, it just didn't shoot good for me. I couldn't hit crap with it outside of 10 yards but my guess it was because of me and not the gun. I would still recommend them and if I have the opportunity to, own another although I'd go with the .45 over 9 but I love the .45 acp caliber

I love the fact that it's fully ambi. I'm a lefty, and that's a big deal for me that a manufacturer would take that into consideration. I've owned 2 .45's, a 10mm, and a .40. I've never been a fan of the 9mm, though the older I get, the more interested I am in the low cost to shoot and higher magazine capacity. Plus, I don't know how many of you guys watch YouTube gunners, but TNoutdoors9 demoed some Underwood Ammo 9mm +P+ that I love. I ran Underwood 135 grain .40 +P in my Glock 23 gen4.

I was checking out a fnp45 forty first time. I loved the gun alot but hated the mag release and when I used the decocker it hit the right side of my hand and that annoyed me. But other than that. It pointed wonderful and grip felt great. Never shot one yet.

I am a fan! I just bought a FNP in .45 and love it! It is tottaly ambi, and has interchangeable backstraps. Can be carried cocked and locked like a 1911, or you can decock it like a m9. I only have about 100 to 200 rounds through it so far, but have had no problems. It is easy to shoot and is quite accurate. Also it is made in the U.S.A. I always wanted a HK USP, but they are way to pricey. I did some research and found that the FNP is very comparable to the USP. So it is cheaper and American made, but with the same quality as a HK roughly. So that is a win win!! Now I am super happy and am loving the pistol. I just took it out two days ago and had a blast.

FNP 45 owner here. It's a great weapon and it's accurate. It is my first FN product but won't be my last.

I own a FNP 9mm in fde
Love the way it shoots. Took me a little while to find the best ammo for it and it shoots like a dream with Pmc 9mm.
I've actually been pretty damn accurate with it at about 75-100 yards shooting over a reservoir hidden in the woods. Other side is just a hill basically so it makes for some good competition with the guys.

Don't own one but tried one out FNP45 and I liked the way it felt but hated the ambi decock and mag release. The decock hit the other side of my hand when I used it.
