here's some photos from the first session. 50 rounds in each target. The one with headshots I shot from 7 to 15 yds. The second was shot all at 7 yds. All in all, a good shooter (the pistol, not me, lol).
(these were done without the TLR-2, that goes on at night in the house)

Looks like ya killt that guy till he's dead. Good shooting

The standard FNP's are pretty manageable. 500 to 600.00 depending on caliber which slide you get. You get a lot of pistol for the money and as the OP stated the recoil is pretty manageable compared to other poly frame weapons.

Thanks for the report. I played with the FNP .45 at SHOT and really liked it.

In case anyone is an NRA Instructor, FN has a deal right now on the 9mm and .40SW FNP's. Instructor cost is $375.

I called about a .45 and they told me that there have been a lot of requests for 5.7's, .45 FNP's and SPR's, so they think the deal will expand to cover the whole FN lineup.

FN wants to hit the civilian market like they did the military market, so they want to get as many FN products into the hands of the "influencers".

Nice shootin' and a fine lookin' .45.

It has taken some time but I'm warming up to the 'earth' color handguns.

Nice kit SGT.

YEAH? Thats what my local ffl quoted me when I asked him about it. Just looked at Buds, $939 but out of stock.

Are you considering on getting a red dot for it?

Here I asked about the gun, also put links to some vids.
Are you thinking about open carrying? With or without the red dot?

*Side note* Does a red dot make it easier to point shoot?
