    Looking at purchasing the handgun tomorrow. I have jumped between this and the M&P 9mm but seem to like the FN better. Any thoughts, or experiences w either gun?

    They are different. Do you want a single action / double action with a hammer in the FNX-9 or a double action only in the M&P? There are pros and cons to both.

    I prefer a SA/DA and the FNX-45, I decided it was a good replacement to the 1911 after my wife bought an FNX-9 for herself. Her reasoning had nothing to do with SA/DA or anything like that, she liked the grip and the sights, but after putting it through its paces, I decided that the FNX-9 was a pretty good choice.

    Think I like the DA/SA more. Honestly I only own single action handguns. Both 1911's. Quality is important to me as well. I don't want something that's gonna have firing issues right outta the box per say!

    I have one. It's a fine pistol. FN makes quality products.

    I had an fnx-9. It was a good gun. I liked the ergonomics a lot.

    The FNX is simply a better pistol than the M&P:)

    I prefer the FN-S. I'll take 'striker' fire over hammer.

    Well the verdict is out. After talking this morning and finding out I no longer needed a permit to purchase in my area, I couldn't resist running out right away. I ended up going w the M&P pro core series .40. The FN didnt quite feel right in my hands. I tried all 4 back straps that came w it. Plus I really like the option of mounting optics on the M&P!

    Range report w pics soon to follow.

    You should always go with what fits best. But I still believe the FN is a better built pistol. The matter of fit was not brought up in the OP. If both fit well then the FN still is the better pistol.

    The C.O.R.E. is a nice pistol. I really like those.

    This decision is 100% personal preference. Both are excellent guns that can be expected to perform like champs. Whichever feels better (including dry firing and peering down the sights, if possible) is probably the clear winner.

    I would imagine mags/parts/accessories for the FN are probably going to be a little more expensive, but I'd hardly call that any kind of deal breaker.
