    The P9 is a 9mm pistol.

    I checked one out the other day, it seems like an extremely good deal for what they are asking for them. I think it was $389 here locally so $400 shipped seems about right

    The one seller was selling it for I want to say $350 and the shipping was $22. Something like that. I know one could be had for less than $375. Search on gunbroker.com for "FNP9" if anyone is interested. Seems very interesting. And for a brief history of the FNP9, or a ton of other guns.....I enjoy this site.

    looks awesome, when its in 9mm is it rated for +p+ ammo?, the accessory rail is a nice feature also

    I don't know how to find that out let alone what it means. This would be my first gun. It caught my eye based on looks/price/and the FN name.

    9 x 19mm NATO ammunition (9mm PARABELLUM) is all I found, and I think that doesn't answer what you asked.

    To the best of my knowledge, rounds (I don't know if its just 9mm or others) can be rated p, +p, or +p+ for power, most modern handguns can handle +p, but a recent FBI study of cop shootings (cops shooting people and people shooting cops) showed that +p+ was one of the more effective rounds, I'll try and look up the study

    How would you find out what the FPN9 is rated at then? And going by your summary, +p+ would be better than the rest? As far as power goes anyhow. Are you losing reliability with something like that when it comes to jamming or misfires? If it can handle +p+, can it handle all the rest as well then?

    Sorry for the barage of questions.....its the only way for me to learn for now though. Thanks.
