Hi guys, I am a newbie on this forum... And I never knew about the FNP9 until a distributor show us the FN catalog.

This is my dilenma, my agency is buying new 9mm for our detectives, we used the G17 but we are recommending the G19 instead. Now a distributor wants us to try the FNP9 for ourselves, I got no problem with that....more range time for me....but I would like some comments on this pistol. Any information will ve welcome.

I searched the internet last night and I found pretty goods articles, but I would like the comments and experience from you guys..

We'll, since you posted on an FN Forum expect that the majority of results are going to strongly lean towards FNP-9's.
That being said, the majority of us had the same decision your department is facing right now, Glock/HK/Sig/FNP/XD etc.
Either of these would make a damn fine service or defensive pistol. If your department is already using the G17 then moving to the G19 would not require much adjustment by your detectives, other than overall size.
I felt that the FNP's were the best looking of all polymer framed pistols available. Of course, looks don't mean anything when the chips are down. I was not sold on the FNP until I actually had the chance to shoot them side by side with the other options available.
IMO, the trigger on the FN cannot be beat by anything in this class. (A custom tuned 1911 is probably not a reasonable choice for your dept) Accuracy from mine has been spot on. As a previous poster stated, "it shoots better than I do". Reliability, for me, has been 100%. No FTF/FTE/stovepies nothing, nada, zip, zilch, zero...

Bottom line, get out there and shoot that thang! All of us here already know, you will be impressed.
