Thread: Fns-9

  1. #1

    Default Fns-9

    I took a break from cleaning the garage today and headed to a new gunshop S of town that has opened recently. The young fella had just unboxed a couple of the new FNS-9s. I fondled one for a while and then the young dealer handed me a loaded magazine and said to go out back and make some noise.

    The gun felt great in my hand, pointed well and shot a tight group. The gun came in two tone, with night sights and three 17 round magazines. It also has a changeable backstrap for large and small hands. The safety and mag release are both suitable to lefties as well as us right handed guys. The trigger pull was on par with the my Glocks and the FNS-9 fit in my model 17 Fobus paddle holster like it was made for it. The very best part of all is the inscription on the frame that says "MADE IN USA".........$550 dollars and a little paper work later and I wore it home.

    I would highly recommend this 9mm to anyone who is in the market for a home grown carry gun.

    How about that a compliment and an insult at the same time. I'm not sure where your going with "for a plastic one" but the best ones I've owned were plastic!

    It means what it means. Nothing wrong with a plastic gun it you acknowledge what if is...solely a tool. Me, I prefer my tools to have not only intrinsic beauty, but investment value. No plastic gun has either of the latter.

    And plastic guns are not in and of themselves "better" than a comparable metal ones in the tool category. That depends on the man behind the gun. Id take my 8 shot SIG 210 at 100 yards against 4 gangbangers with Glocks ...and Im a big target!

    You guys are breaking the rules, "NEVER take a pistol to a gun fight". Pistols are for knife fights and allow you enough time to get to a real gun behind the truck seat.

    I have handle one of those myself and find it to be a pretty good fit and an easy to shoot pistol. It is quite typical of the striker fired polymer guns and if it is as reliable as the FN P/X I'd say it is a good one. They are ambidextrous with most functions and seem to be reliable but I've fired only a couple rounds through one. I too like that "Made in USA" stamped on them.
    Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?

    That depends on the gangbanger. Your assuming that gangbangers can't shoot! We have a gang in Iowa City, Iowa that is made up of pissed off ex Marine special opps personal. I'm thinkin someone might need to order an oversized casket! Never under estimate your opponent!

    Sorry my Karma does not entail facing off armed ex Marine gangbangers. However if they show up here in Anch I can ask my buddies who have Fed written on their windbreakers to take care of them.

    And Id probably even still take my SIG 210 vs them. A glock is still a Glock

    I had a 9mm FNP. It was a good gun but I sold it to fund a different project.

    I keep a glock in my pickup because I could care less if the soulless plastic tool ever gets stolen.

    I also have a sig 210 but drive a Chevrolet
