    I doubt I'll ever buy an unpopular pistol again except to be strictly a range toy. I'd get a glock.

    Got two. Thanks. :wiggle:

    I've got nearly 20 handguns, and have no experiance w/ the FN line. I've read good reviews in the past, and thought it was pretty damn cool.

    Just because it isn't an everyday brand doesn' tmean it's trash...right? Can you honestly support your statement from experiance with FN?

    It's a great gun. If it fits you well, and you're looking to spend money on another handgun to add to your collection for whatever reason, then go ahead and pick it up.

    Nope and I never meant to imply it was trash. I've just had less fun with my less common guns. Hard to find holsters/parts (think sights), impossible to find a good smith for trigger work. The novelty isn't worth the hassle. Ymmv. If you have a bunch of guns already though what the hell, why not.

    FWIW, I don't need a smith if I wanna play. I've built 1911's from the ground up and tuned many, many different triggers... I'm usually pretty good playin' with gun guts. :)

    Holsters...yeah...but...come one man -- if the thing is as large as it appears to be, I doubt it would get carried. I just want it to play with. But, I am curious about reviews from owners or those who have shot, or at least handled one.

    Thank you for your input, though, Soy.

    Nice. I've been looking for one. Not a single dealer around me seems to carry then though. Want to fondle it a bit before I decide to order one.

    That case looks excessively large and well built.

    Well for a euro gun at least all the controls are in the right place (americanized controls). The trigger is kind of blah but not horrible. Do not know of anyone doing trigger gobs for them. Not much of a aftermarket following. I would rather have one of these as opposed to a m&p or xd.

    Yup. Actually about 20 minutes away from me. Damn shame I can't get one "factory direct".

    If you've already got a Glock, do it. It's new at a cheap price.

    I've been wanting to do that for a LONG time. :noes:

    Or, I'd rather just save the money and put it towards this:
