    OK, sure....overstated? Maybe, maybe not.

    But...this is by far the best .45ACP semi-auto I have and have used.

    The FNH FN .45ACP Tactical (Flat Dark Earth).

    Here's an overview of the handgun, with unboxing, introduction, close ups, and shooting demo.

    Enjoy, I know I sure am.

    I have a FNS-9, and love it dearly. Why more people don't go for FNHs is beyond me. Nice video!

    Best .45 auto ever..in my opinion is the P90. It was my Dads, he sent it off to college with me, and i never gave it back to him...lol. It shoots straight, simple to operate and clean, and eats ANYTHING. Built like a tank. I have aquired several other .45autos over the years, but this one aint for sale.....

    Maybe a little mixed up ! A 45 is a 45 but its not a P90 ! ....... A P90 shoots a 5.7x28mm !
    But I would like to know what pistol you have ?
    I like 45's , large caliber is sweet ! I do enjoy my PS90 also. A P90 is full auto, a PS90 is semi auto.

    Is the mag release button and safety lever made of polymer? What kind of spring does it have to reduce the recoil-double? Thank you. The FN factory in Belgium is a comfortable day drive from my house. Normally we have to cross the border to purchase Belgian guns, since we can not seem to find Browning nor FN in our stores. Road trip!

    There are a few cases where models overlap.

    If someone says "M60", they could be talking about the M60 machine gun, or the (M)arlin/(M)odel 60 .22

    It can be confusing at times, especially since firearms manufacturing and design is an international endeavor.

    And I don't care what anyone says, in my KoolAid jug, the 1911 will always rule supreme when it comes to the .45 ACP.

    There are others out there that are more modern. Hold more boolits. Different sight plane. Longer barrels. Or better for concealment. Whatever. The same old saying always goes, "what's best for you may not be best for the other guy." This is very similar to, "one man's trash is another man's treasure."

    Here's what helps to mitigate felt recoil, from the Wiki article on the FNX pistols.

    Its difference lies primarily in the distance the barrel and the slide travel prior to the barrel dropping and unlocking. The FNX barrel and slide travel up to twice the distance of some other semi automatic pistols, such as the Springfield XDm (HS2000), before separating. This helps to reduce the felt recoil of the pistol.

    My vote is for H&K USP45 Tactical - accuracy, reliability, threaded barrel, Match trigger. Some H&K fans may disagree with me claiming the newest H&K45 tactical to be the best .45ACP. My personal opinion - a modern handgun has to be high-capacity even in larger calibers but for H&K45 Tactical they sacrificed 2 rounds in the mag for the better ergonomics so I prefer the good old USP.

    I personally think that the Sig Sauer 220X6 is the best 45 acp. It makes an average shooter an expert. Bullseye all day long.

    That's a damn nice pistol. I wonder if it will ever be available in a decocker only version

    I'd like to shoot one and compare it to my SIG P220.

    There is no comparison. Its like sending out little lead laser beams.

    I would go with the boorish Glock 21. Just works, Reguardless of what you throw at it.
