I really like the gun overall, but when using a thumbs-forward grip and grasping the gun as close to the beavertail as possible, the decocker really digs into the proximal joint of the thumb on my shooting hand.

I can certainly live with it, but just wondered if anyone else has this little problem. :)

I use a thumbs forward grip similar to yours, and being a USP guy I don't have the problem you describe with the FNP-45.

Try holding the thumb of your firing hand further out and against the thumb of your support hand. Move your thumb to the left of the decocking lever. I have also found you can ride the top of the decocker quite comfortably on the FNP-45 because the opposite side of the lever pushing against your hand prevents it from moving downward during firing.

Thank you. Yes, I fing that riding my shooting hand thumb on top of the decocker is doable, but it requires a mental jump for me. I'm too used to my 1911s, I reckon. :p

I don't have that problem. My grip is slightly different.

I have no issues with the thumb forward grip as well.
Try changing the position of your thumb.
At first it felt a little strange but after a bit it is natural feeling.
