    My wife wants one sooo badly; this is going to put her over the edge.

    Those are the same results I get with my FNP-45. The platform makes me look much better than I am, I really like the pistol.

    Great shooting and you obviously made a good decision in buying it.

    I love mine. I really kind of want an FNX in 9mm too, since I own no 9mm's.

    My LGS has one and I am this close to buying it. How's the recoil. I have a Taurus 1911 and my regular carry is the Glock 36?

    thanks guys, as for the recoil...I have shot numerous .45s including a friends glock and colt gold cup that day, and I can say the fnx surprised me with its recoil much less/smoother than the glock and 1911, my friends who shot it that day were actually surprised

    I love my new FNX-45. Its the first, and only 45 I have owned, or shot. I was surprised how mild the pistol shoots. I posted my range report last week. Click Here To Read My Range Report

    Ifit, you've made me pretty jealous :). I noticed the date on your targets and realized that you probably had a lot more fun than I did that day (long day at work). I would've much rather been shooting.

    I've yet to fire an FNX, but I've been impressed with the ones I've held. Thanks for the show and tell.

    The recoil on an FNP-45 feels pretty close to a 1911, with the edge going to an all steel 1911 by a small margine. JMO Of course the real advantage is the 16 round capacity on the FN with one in the chamber.

    Nice shooting, but I am allergic to plastic :(

    I feel sorry for people who feel this way, because you are missing out on some really incredible firearms.

    went to the range to try out my new O/U shotgun and decided to use the 25y target and give the fnx a go

    Perhaps, my Colt Mk IV 70 Series may not be as accurate, but I will bet it will be in service longer.

    ^ How 75% of gun forum posts devolve into that same predictable, repetitive circle jerk that started 30 years ago.

    Well that's a coincidence I've been shooting this 1911 for almost 30 years.

    I am 50 years old. I see myself being around here for maybe 30 more years. After that, I dont care if my FNX-45 is wore out, or if my Ruger Mark II has 100,000 rounds left in its life span. If some thug kicks my front door down at midnight, I will be very thankful that I have 16 rounds of 45 available, as opposed to 8.
  19. Wow, that did devolve quickly. "I don't like your opinion so it's wrong." "I don't like YOUR opinion so YOU'RE wrong."

    Anyways, nice FNX and nice shooting! I've been considering getting one but HK and CZ keep distracting me. Maybe one day I'll get around to picking one up.

    I guess one is not entitled to his own opinion here :(
    I did not intend to offend, I had a Glock 17 and 19 and did not care for them, though I liked the 19 better than the other.
