FNS-9 series - my next pistol?

So, what's your favored FNS-9, original, long slide, or compact? I plan on purchasing an FNS-9, just not sure which one to get. Honestly, I really like features of all three. I own a Glock 27 (with a LW 40/9 conversion barrel in addition to the .40 barrel), Glock 19, and Glock 17 (...and a few other pistols). While I'm an unabashed Glock fan, FNH has a real winner with the FNS series. I'm really leaning towards the FNS-9 long slide, as it would complement my Glock collection, vs. competing with a particular model. However, I see advantages towards any of the three FNS-9 models.

depends on what you want it for. Personally, I'd take the 9c mainly for CCW, but if I was using it for IDPA or 3 gun or something like that, I'd take the long slide (including home defense gun). If you plan on carrying it some but also use it for home defense, I'd go with the standard.
The 9c has a slightly shorter slide than the standard (marginal difference)
