I just picked up an FNP-9 new for a great price.(I know, I'll post pics later tonight.) I'm wondering if anyone else on here owns one (there must be at least one of you:)) and what they have found in the way of holsters. I prefer IWB. My other autos are kept in Don Hume 715M clip-ons. I took it to the range this afternoon and put a box of Independence 115g, and a box of Blazer 115g through it without incident. It almost seems that the gun aims itself. It is the first time that I have ever shot the entire black out of a target at the range. My Glocks may be in jeopardy. :eek:

I should have mentioned that I am not fond of Kydex holsters. I prefer leather. Thanks for your responses so far.

Good choice. I really enjoy my FNP-9 but I don't carry it. I've heard that some people will take a dremel tool to the magazine base to trim them down for CCW.

I have one. Flat Dark Earth color. Excellent combat gun. Reliable and accurate. I don't carry it right now, may do so later. For my current carry gun, Springfield Armory EMP, I just bought a "generic" soft leather holster, cut it to fit, and the more I wear it, the more it conforms to the EMP design. Flat, comfortable, and stays in place. Will probably look for a similar one for winter carry of the FNP-9.

Galco has a decent assortment: http://www.usgalco.com/HolsterPG2.asp I really love their leather holsters.

This seems to be a great gun from what I hear. I have yet to read a negative review of any substance.

Thanks Steven Camp for the review. I am so thankful for reviews from honest guys like you. I am also thankful that guys like you buy the new guns and test them for problems before poor folk such as I blow my money on them. :)

Something I love about mine is that, although a polymer frame, . . . it doesn't have that silly message on the side about "being sure I read my owners manual". :)

I believe that you can actually purchase a drop-in SAO or DAO conversion for the FN's. You might want to look into it. I'm replacing a G-19 with this FN.

I did find a High Noon Bare Asset IWB holster for it last night and ordered it. I will also be looking at the others that have been suggested. Thanks, all. It sure does shoot nice. ;)

Price-wise, I paid $450.00 but have been unable to find another for under $520.00.

This is my second FN. The first was an FNP-9M which I sold several months ago. Have regretted it ever since.
