Best new 45acp.

Anyone have the experience of shooting the FN Herstal 45FNP USG? WOW, might be MOM up side down, but I have not ever shot anything even close in total performance.15-1 to start, replaced by 2 -14mags. Accurate as YOU can shoot,easy field strip for cleaning,and FUNCTION-FUNCTION-FUNCTION! Load mine with Double-Tap 185 grain Nosler jhp at 1225 fps this is the KING! By the the way FN Herstal make's all our M-16'S for our Military. Thanks for letting post. Have alot more info for ccw and home defense, aw schucks you people probably know some of it. But then, maybe not.

Welcome to the site. The FNP45 USG is a really nice pistol. Its very similar to the HK USP 45. I really like the FNP 45 Tactical with threaded bbl and if you add the red dot... that thing is a bad boy. I agree, Double Tap loads good stuff. I usually use them for my 10mm loads. FNH doesn't make all of our M16's though. While they provide some M16 rifles and lots of machine guns like the M240 and the SAW, Colt is still the king of the M16 and M4. Sabre provides some M16's as well

Reaper,
I spoke to the reps at the FN booth quite extensively. The lead distributor of the west coast region told me FN is producing about 60% of the m4/m16 family of rifles for the US Armed Forces. I have not checked his claim...

It changes every year. My point was that they don't provide ALL of the M16's... asshole

hastheruns

I'm not sure if they provided hastheruns, but I know they did some torturous and rigorous field testing. hastheruns has shown to not wear out or break down over time and will last for at least 100k pumps with no lube

Wasn't a fan of the feel of the FN when I handled it recently...granted, I didn't get to shoot it, but it felt overly plastic to me.

Not Runs Jr

My child support payment that goes to Oklahoma every month has taught me to double wrap it when fucking a psycho, so this one can't be mine. Besides, with as many diseases as ebear got from tossing Raper's salad, I now dip my dick in a can of latex house paint, let it dry, then double wrap it. No more herpegohnnosyphillaids for me.

FNP 45

I am looking into purchasing an FNP 45 and like the way they feel. I use to shoot IDPA with a HK USP 45, and have always been a Sig P220 fan and really love the feel of the FNP. Another choice is the Glock 21SF. They feel great and shoot as well as any Glock I've ever fired. Good Hunting!
