New here today. I just bought the FNS 40 cal. This is after my shield 40 blew up few weeks back and S&W only offered a discount. I must admit I know very little about this weapon or the company for that matter. The salesman who also works for me at the fire station highly recommend the gun when I told him I want a reliable, quality handgun and he showed me this one. He also has one and could not say enough about it. I like the feel and the trigger right away and can't wait to hit the range. It has to be better than my shield was.
