My wife(!) decided that we should take up shooting. I had a Marlin .22 as a boy (who didn't?) but haven't had a firearm since then. After spending $200 testing different pistols at a local range over three weeks, we bought an FNP-9 two weeks ago. It shoots very nicely. Just for fun, I thought you'd like to see our list of pistols we tried: Glock 17, Glock 19, Glock 26, S&W M&P9C (our favorite compact and probably the next purchase), S&W M&P 9, CZ 75 B (my second choice), Springfield XD9, Springfield XD9C, Springfield EMP (nice gun, but out of our price range), a S&W .357 revolver (big one -- 8-shot), a Taurus 5-shot .38, and a little hammerless .38 Special S&W. Sorry I didn't catch the model numbers of the revolvers, but there was a lot of shooting going on.

Anyway, bought the FN because it shot as well as any of the 4-inch guns we tried, it felt good to both of us, it was from FN, it has a nice soft recoil,and it was cheaper at that time, especially with the shooter's package promo.

Looking forward to enjoying our new hobby. We already picked up a really nice used Wingmaster 20 gauge, but I think we need an 18-inch 12-gauge and that Smith M&PC. Maybe a CZ and a .22 pistol, too. Or ...

Welcome! Whatever you do, don't shoot an HK, beware the HK bug, once it bites there's no going back. Esp. the new HK45 and P30 and P30L.

Or a SIG! :D

Welcome to the forum. You made a good choice. And your second choice is a good one too. Everyone should have a CZ.

Guys, I think those are the pistols they TRIED, not ones they own...
Sorry for the confusion -- those are just the one's we rented at the range. The only two we own are the FNP9 and a Remington Wingmaster 870. Thanks for the warm welcome.

Hello from Seattle. Just picked up an SLP last week. First FN, but I'm looking at a DSA sometime soon. Right now I'm on a shotgun spree. Saigas, SLP and soon the TPS.
