    It's all good. MI needs that class too and I already took it, now I just need to man up and pay the $105 fee to get the license. :uh:

    We also have to wait a month-ish for it to go through the gun board or whatever. Knowing my luck when my application comes up they'll be like "This man has been arrested for urination in public and disorderly conduct. REJECTED" :rofl:. Both got reduced to civil infractions but still...

    can anyone find a concealed carry thread? i want to know what would be better for daily carry? from what i've seen, the FNP9 would be too big :hsd:

    i don't know, i'm still undecided :wtc:

    I went out and got a Kel-tec P-11. It's very light, just what I was looking for in a CCW. But that bitch has some long ass trigger pull. I can't shoot that thing one handed for the life of me.

    But after shooting that, I can shoot everything else so well. :mamoru::mamoru:

    I have XD SC, it's fine for range but I'm tired of CCWing it. If I were you, I'd get something lighter.

    glock 19 homes. my first pistola. great first pistola. basically you can't go wrong.

    although, the FNP's are look quite nice, I am sure they are fine guns. for a noob such as yourself the single action trigger pull will likely let you be more accurate vs. the glock in slow aimed firing at paper at the range. I reckon in an actual gunfight you would shoot about the same with both guns.

    I don't have .40 cal gun in my ranks, and have been considering the FNP-40 quite heavily...would be essentially the same gun as the FNP-9 you are considering. have heard great things about them like I said.

    you gunna get considered.jpg

    According to some reviews I've seen, the backstrap (which also acts as a safety, without it your gun stops functioning) is secured via a plastic rail while the tab that rides on that rail is metal. :eek4:

    You can guess the rest of the review. :mamoru::mamoru:

    Yesh, now imagine that shit breaking while you tryign to defend your life with it. Apparently they got new magazines that keeps that back strap in place, but I try not to gamble w/ my life. :mamoru:

    North Dakota still issued one to me for the same two charges. Turns out waiting for a cab for 2 hours and having to piss at 4:00 in the AM made me a criminal haha.

    i didn't start out as a troll. you guys just took everything i said the wrong way. you chose to see me as someone who disagreed. you didn't bother to pay attention to anything else and i was labeled as a troll and nothing more. even after i told you all that i've been hunting since i was little and that i own a battery of firearms, some of you don't pay attention to that and just disregard everything i say as trolling... so get your facts straight and you won't end up looking like an ignorant hater.
