Default FN 9mm Compact

Finally got some trigger time in today. I brought the FN 9mm Compact and the 4" Colt Trooper to test out as I hadn't shot either of them. The FN I picked up for cheap as a potential IDPA gun. Since the barrel is under 3.8" long, it works in the regular and BUG matches so it ain't a bad choice.

While I'm not a huge fan of DA/SA, the little FN was fun to shoot and very accurate. Firing at 10-12 yards rapidly, I kept everything in a 6" circle at POA. No malfunctions at all and I put 150 rounds of WWB through it. If you're looking for a very reasonably priced poly gun (I paid $300 lightly used) with Sig-type decocker and external hammer - the FN is a nice choice.

The Trooper was very smooth and accurate, I just shot WWB .38 Special today - I'll try some .357 the next trip.

No, I didn't take a pic of the target but here's pix of both guns shot today...

Sounds good to me.
