Don't know

I know Remington made a couple in factory's over there. But I can't think of a gun company that hails from Argentina.

Hunter

I would but it would take WAAAAAAY too long. Hunter...you need to narrow the question down a bit. But for what It is worth, FN is a good Co. for rifles but I would never buy their pistols. Not that there is anything specific that is wrong with them, I just don't like them. They are just a all around cheap pistol.

Forget FN

I got on their site and all of their handguns but 1 are in 9mm. The other one is in some odd caliber. I have a 9mm, but I am thinkin about either a .40 or .45 pistol.

Choices

From both of those I would have 2 choose the Springfield XDM. It just feels better to me than the M&P. But I have also considered Sigs, Kimber 1911, Stoeger Cougar, H&K USP, CZ, and Taurus. Of this list I have felt of the Sig and the Cougar. I have yet to feel any 1911, so I dont know how I would like this style pistol. I cant find a USP to hold, never held a CZ, and I cant decide which model Taurus I like. I know that was confusing...any suggestions???

We used the Browning 9mm Hi power made by FN (Belgium) in the British army as a protection weapon it was rugged and reliable and had plenty of poke in it and an all round good gun.
