Went to the Houston gunshow today and among the many many many guns there were no PS90s or Five Sevens to been seen. Not sure what this means, extremely popular or just hard for vendor to get. I did not even see any PS90 mags for sale.

I did pick this up:

Well of course not this one but one just like it. $580 plus tax. Was not in the market for a Beretta but I really liked the gun. I was going to get a Compact Walther P99 in 9mm but choose the Beretta instead.

I didn't go to this show - but I have been to many of them lately (the Houston shows) - I've always seen Five Sevens and Ps90s... Don't know why they didn't have them this time. Oh well....

Not sure if this has anything to do with it but, in my search for both a 5.7 and 90 at local shops (just to paw over) the dealers seemed to not want to deal with FN. My asking questions about ordering either from FN were often met with negative comments, and when I mentioned ordering from online vendors several shops said "that's fine as long as we don't have to mess with FN".

Does this seem normal? Is FN hard to deal with?

some manufacturers want you to buy "x" number of dollars worth of firearms, fn may have a high number which worries some smaller gun shops because they may not turn over inventory that fast, my gun shop told me they were discontinuing a certain manufacturer (not FNH) because they wanted them to buy $25,000 worth of firearms at one time, this could be a possible reason though i am not sure.

I thought it was because FNH was heading toward the same dealer pricing scheme as SIG and HK.
Thus, smaller margin of profit for dealers.
