    This is my favorite 9mm semi-automatic pistol.
    I think it's an underrated gun in the crowded field of 9mm semi-autos on the market today. You have so many fine guns to choose from that it's become somewhat of an underdog. However, I like this gun the most.
    WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT:
    1) Better decocker lever location than Sig P226
    2) Lower price than HK
    3) DA/SA - I am a little intimidated when the G19 is chambered. You have basically a SA gun with no safety. I know, keep finger off trigger, but you just have to be on high alert to keep that trigger clear
    4) No safety - I just prefer not to have a safety of any kind on a defense gun. I'm no Special Forces operator, and can just see myself pointing a gun in a high-stress situation and not being able to pull the trigger when I need to
    5) Blackened stainless slide for rust resistance
    6) Doesn't try to make a fashion statement like the Beretta PX4 - looks serious and all-business
    7) Single action trigger is pretty sweet
    8) Grip angle and size is very comfortable for me, especially with the straight backstrap
    9) After all said and done, I like the exposed hammer
    10) It's an FN

    WHAT I DON'T LIKE ABOUT IT:
    1) Lack of aftermarket support - barrels, etc.
    2) Lack of a .22 conversion kit

    Go to Steven Camp's website for his write-up on the FNP 9 He is pleased with his own pistol and has some targets also. I finally found Steven Camps report on The High Road gun thread under the Autoloaders section in the post ,with a link you can look at!

    Those are nice pistols. I wouldn't be disappointed to find one hiding out in my safe.
