seriously thinking about the Docter Optics red-dot. I'd definately like to carry it eventually, occasionally... owb but still concealed and w/o the red-dot. The tritium sights that are standard on it are awesome... might get the red-dot to do some practical shooting stuff with. Who knows!

If you click on the link in the thread I posted, it takes you to FN's website. If you look through their videos, they have a bunch on 3 gun challenges. This, with the red dot, looks like it would be a good gun for. I never shoot at any of these shooting leagues (3 gun, idpa, etc.), I guess I cant really say what would be a good gun to use. But I was impressed to find out that FN Herstal is the ONLY weapons manufacturer that produces all three guns, pistol-rifle-shotgun. Now they just have to get into the archery biz!

Any updates as to how it does at the range?

Well Michigan... it seems that I can't go to the range without putting at least a hundred rounds through this piece. Took a friend from work the other day. He shot if very well, especially considering it was his first time shooting a pistol.
I am always happy shooting this pistol. It shoots great when I do everything right and when I don't, it tells me clearly what I am doing wrong.

Thanx. Im looking at it from a left hander standpoint. I like the idea of a completely left handed gun.

Yeah, the controls are completely symetrical, so I imagine it is very lefty-friendly.

That is one awesome looking piece of hardware that you have there! No threaded muzzles for me out here in Cali I'm jealous!

You mean the basic FNP-45 right? The FNP-45 Tactical only comes in flat earth. If I got one that wasnt the tactical model it would the the FNP-45 USG model. The USG model not only has the decocker, but also has a manual safety so you can carry cocked 'n locked.

I retract my previous post. I just saw an all black version on gunbroker.com. Not sure if I would want the black one over the flat earth one.
