So I asked earlier about the de-cock levers not being level...well mine was slightly bent due to my holster (right side got caught while i was holstering it). But i did fix it simply by bending it 1/12 of an inch up. No big deal. So went to Heber, Arizona to shoot off some rounds..shot 100rds of 147gr HP Speer Gold Dots, no malfunctions...break-in was a breeze..gun works perfect, as the FN logo on the gun proves itself. Love it, excellent choice for back up to the Glock 22 :cool:. Anyways..to the pictures..(I do not know how to embed, so sorry if they are just links).









Sorry the pics are fuzzy, took them with the camera phone.

Dayumm. 100 rnds of Gold Dots for target practice. Must be nice. I can't afford to shoot anything above WWB. :-D

Glad to hear your pleased with your purchase.

Is the glock your duty gun? Do you feel like there is a chance that you'll make the FNP your main gun?

I usually use Speer Lawman for practice myself. Flatnosed like the hollow point Gold Dot, but a little cheeper. I still have some WWB that I loathe due to accuracey problems (at least in my GLOCKs). I often think they are so bad that I should just shoot them into the ground so that it only breaks in the barrel. That way I don't have to see how terrible it shoots. But that would be a waste of ammo, even cheap ammo. I'll have to try the WWB in my FNP-9 and see if it is any better in that gun. I have some 147Gr Gold Dots that was fairly inexpensive a year or two ago. At the time when Gold Dots were pricey, they had one model of 147Gr that was like $13/50 rounds. I picked up a couple boxes and wish now that I had bought them all.

I also might have to try the flat backstrap to see if it shoots any better too, but i still need some DA trigger time. Captdreifus, do you find it shoots better with the flat strap?

backstrap/duty gun

As far as FNP9, I would not carry that as a duty gun..eventhough the 9mm is a proven round for defense. .40 just makes me feel alot more comfortable. The flat backstraps give it more of a glock or sig feel, which I really like. Its a very easy transition between weapons. No to boast myself or anything, but I have found that the flat backstrap for me, is infact more accurate than the curved. Once i figure out how the pictures work...I'll have to post some pictures from the range. Speer gold dots are fun to shoot since Uncle Sam makes the purchase for me :? A few years back, when they changed from 9mm to .40 that made for alot of 9mm surplus ammo.

We all have our opinions. ALl I ever carry for my concealed gun is 9mms. I'm fine with that.

I finally have 1 40, but 9mm and 45 ACP are my 2 favs.

I see. It makes sense to shoot what you carry if your LE/Mil.

Went to Rio Salado gun range in Mesa, Arizona yesterday..FNP 9 is a well made weapon. Shot 250rds of WWB (115), 100 Speer GD's (147), and 100rds of some UMC stuff. Not a single hitch. Near 1000rds with no problems..I almost trust this thing with my life :)
