Q: FNS-40 yay or nay?

I currently have an FNX-45 and love it. One of the things I like most is how the big, beefy slide really tames the recoil of the .45 ACP round. Plus, if you run out of ammo, you can just throw the pistol at somebody and do some serious damage!

I'm thinking about getting a .40 pistol. I was wondering about the FNS-40. Is the slide as big and heavy as the one on my .45?

how does it shoot? Is it nice and soft or is there a lot of muzzle flip?

How would you compare the FNS-40 to something like the M&P 40?

The FNS 40's recoil is not bad at all as .40s go. It's definitely controllable. I have shot a few different 40 cals (XD, Kahr, Ruger, Fnx, FNS and sig). The recoil on the FNS is much softer than some but certainly more muzzle flip than a 9mm. I'd say go rent one and see how it feels to you. That's the only way you will truly know.
