I see the topic occasionally - I saw a post over the weekend at the Sig Forum about the FNP45, and I've seen prev conversations about it at Handgun Forum and Glocktalk and THR...dourdave said:Is there a good reason why the non-brand specific forums never mention the FNP ?

i have used FN's weapons in military all over the world,.. and the only FN pistol i ever heard about was the Five Seven,.. i never knew FN made a 9mm and .40,. or even the .45 that should be here soon.Is there a good reason why the non-brand specific forums never mention the FNP ? This group has me very interested in the gun, but I've been unable to find other discussions.
i am going to have to look for that magazine.In the Nov/Dec 2007 American Handgunner magazine there are three full page ads for the FNP, all back to back. Each ad has a different picture of a soldier with a weapon made by FN Herstal at the top of the page and below that a picture of an FNP.
I'm surprised that the FNP's aren't getting more attention, but I suppose that may be because they haven't caught on with the law enforcement agencies. The price, quality and safety features would seem to make them a good candidate for a service weapon, but I haven't seen any reports of LE agencies in the US buying FNP's.
Can you give the link on this?dourdave said:Speaking of ads, I received a auto-generated e-mail ad from CDNN today. Mostly hawking used guns but there was a comment about the FNP so I clicked and was greeted by an FN sales promotion.
They are offering FNP 9's and 40's for $379.99. Same price for the blackened slide or the natural stainless slide.
Appears to be a good price. Shipping ($45) and local (here) FFL processing ($30) less sales tax ($30) brings me in the range of local pricing - if I can find one.
I gotta think some more about this.
