so you believe 15 people answering a poll on an internet forum constitutes a significant sampling of the total number of FNPs out there??? Statistics being used and anecdotal information from people on a website should be taken with a grain of salt when it comes to researching a particular gun. How about talk to some gunsmiths? Jumping to the conclusion that 1 out of every 4 guns has this problem is way more than assumption. :-?ironman0311 said:Is this poll for what is happening to brand new guns?
Or, guns that have seen some use for sometime?
Do you have this problem?
Yes, I have this problem
25% [ 3 ]
No, I never had this problem
75% [ 9 ]

In either case ... not to confidence inspiring to see this problem occurring in one out of every four guns.
but to derive that 25% of all FNP guns have this problem when your sample consists of:ironman0311 said:Do a board and a Internet search and you will find that their are a raft of folks who have all sorts of problems with the FNP series guns. Sending them back to the factory for repair seems more common than any other new line of guns I can recall in the recent past. And, yet we hear nothing, zip, zero, nada, from the factory as to what they are doing about all these defects?
It seems that sticking one's head in the sand, minimizing the problems, and/or denying there ARE SIGNIFICANT problems with the FNP series guns at this juncture is not being honest with those who rely on these type firearms forums for reliable information.
The MORE we discuss these issues the better of the entire shooting community is in getting them resolved.
I love hearing about the gun's good points, but, I do want to hear about it's bad points as well. That weights heavily as to when I pick a firearm whether it's a just a 'range gun' or something I will want to carry and trust my life to.
I for one, still have not had many of my questions answered about the FNP's trustworthiness in that regard at all. As I said before, the silence from FNH has been as deferring as it is disconcerting.
So, yes we can discern a lot from a casual poll on this form.
