My OSS looked really good, was super accurate (1.75" at 25 yards), and fed / ejected just fine. But I never got it to reliably set off primers with the decocked striker. Since the DA first pull was the entire reason I bought it, I sold it for $200 to a guy at my local range looking for a competition gun. I bought the one at Buds also.

I'd honestly find a used Glock or perhaps an XD before I bought any of those, and for not much more.

XD from buds:

In my experience, putting something on "hold" means absolutely nothing.

case in point: I had a car wreck 4 years ago. After over a month of my insurance company doing nothing, I finally did their job for them so I could get my claim paid. I wrote a check for $500 so a dealership would hold the car I wanted for 3 days until I could come back with a check for the total price of the car.
Three days later I turned in the rental and walked 200 yards to the dealership and was told "sorry, we sold that car."

So these days, unless I'm ready and able to buy what I need, then and there, I don't go shopping.

Buds has a generally good reputation considering the huge volume they sell.

I have used Buds for used guns and they have always been accurately described

That FNX-9 is a excellent pistol. I would reconsider the purchase, no offense.

I am surprised no one has suggested the Kahr CW9. One of the best bangs for the buck out there IMHO. They can be found for less than $400.
