My buddy has the FNX9. Don't know if there are many differences between it and the FNP but it's a fine pistol. Well worth the money in my opinion.

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.
I just bought a brand new usp 45 for the same price as a fnp 45. CDNN.com. at first the usp seemed too large for me but after renting it a couple times I got very used to it and now I know how I have to.hold it and its perfect. Now I.want a compact and a tactical and a 40 Cal and a nine mm. I want em all!

A USP for the same price as a FN? Nice find!

I have both Fnp-9 usg and a Fnp 45 usg, love them, I brought the fnp 9 brand new and have put 1100 round through it only one FTE, the Fnp 45 brought used with unknown round count I put about 500 round with no problems. the Fnp is a big pistol so hand size will be a factor,one the plus side it feels 1 like a 9mm when shooting, when compared to a glock 21 or a 1911

If you are buying a FN 9 or 40 just go with the FNX . I have the FNX40 and its a terrific pistol. I think the slide lock release button is bigger and mag release is as well. I can't remember the other changes but they are well worth the few extra dollars a FNX cost over. FNP. X is not available in 45 though.

Ghost,

I have had a FNP - 45 for a while now. I really love this sidearm. Fully ambidexterous, recoil of a .40 cal, great sights, very accurate, and highly reliable. Surprisingly, it conceals well for it' s size.

However, be advised, this thing is a beast - a real heavyweight. I have fairly small hands and had a learning curve to find " my" way of handling and shooting it proficiently. If you can rent or borrow one before hand you will see what I am talking about here. I have zero experience with the 9mm so I can't really speak on how well it performs. I think that if you were to talk with other FN owners you will pretty much find a happy bunch.

I have a FNP 40 I bought after owning a Glock 22 for over 6 yrs... it is an excellent pistol. Most so than my glock and not to mention I shoot better with the fnp, and it looks better
