I am a new comer to the shooting world. I have a ton of book knowledge which won't float me anywhere and I want to gain some real buoyant experience to grow with and develop my skills on. I have been looking closely at the FNS-9 as a powerful candidate for this role. I am looking for a gun for pretty much every use. I do not intend to carry both open or concealed though I may get my CCP just to provided myself the option to if I desire it. So basically I am looking for a good long term handgun that I can use to learn on, carry as needed/desired and will serve me well once I reach the point of being an experienced shooter.
