Default FNP 45 Tactical with Osprey Silencer

This is my favorite new tactical handgun. My only gripe is that I need to be 3 feet taller and 300 pounds heavier to carry it concealed. Still, it's a great gun, lots of fun.

Here's my review: The FNP 45 Tactical with Osprey Suppressor

Be sure to watch the video review at that link, and then watch this video which compares the gun with and without the suppressor:

Dude, you suck. Now I gotta go sit down for a few minutes.

I just sold my USP Tactical .45 because it was not "right". I'm thinking of trying the FNP .45 because the 9mm's and .40's rock.

Great video quality, too, BTW.

Thanks!!

I spent about an hour plus at the SilencerCo Booth at SHOT and I was VERY impressed with their picking up of the "Black Box" ball and running it through to a finished, very cool product.

I was very impressed with their passion, their design and based on what I saw on this video, it appears to function as well as advertised.

Very well done video and many thanks for posting.

PS - I agree, you DO suck! Bastage.

I really like the FNP's and I'm not really a fan of poly framed weapons.The suppressor sounded like it worked very well. With or without though the FNP is well worth looking at.

Very nice comparison.

I assume the Osprey was shot dry?

In the video shot from a distance, it was wet. Here's a video that compares it wet and dry:

I like your vids. Not a lot of drama, or extraneous stuff.

Keep 'em coming.
