    Today marks the first time in my life I was able to look at exactly what pistol I wanted over ANYTHING else, and buy it.. Hard work, my part-time job, and the Marine Corps gave me the ability to buy my dream handgun, the FNH Tactical .45 in FDE.. I bought it brand new with the whole factory kit and it should arrive Monday here in Michigan. I CANNOT WAIT! I already have 250 rounds of Remington UMC (If it'll eat that, I'll be a happy man..) stocked up and I'll post a range report after its' arrival. Anyone who currently owns and/or carries one of these, feel free to chime in with your loves/hates. Semper Fi!

    I have one, and it's a money pit.... be prepared to buy a trijicon RMR and Osprey suppressor shortly after receiving the gun...

    Congrats on an awesome gun :thumbsup:

    Just FYI, avoid WWB ammo, FN recommend against using it

    What's the MSRP on one of those? I could always use another .45

    Congrats! It is an AWESOME pistol. I had mine at the range today. Got the RMR on it, but no suppressor, YET.

    I can attest to this statement. Just finished my gun trust so I can get going on getting the Osprey for the FNP-45. FNX-45 Tactical was just announced. Wonder what the difference is between the two models.

    Contrats on the new pistol. Glad you got what you want and glad you got a 45acp, awesome ctg. that's been around forever and seems to never go away. Just can't beat cubic inches or large calibers. :supergrin:

    Thanks all, it's a pretty damn good feeling to not have to compromise in any about what you want and to then pay for it with the money you earned with your blood, sweat, & tears.. I'm 23 years old and will be a commissioned 2nd Lt. in the Marine Corps by year's end, my life is truly just beginning and I thought this would be a helluva way to kick things off! S/F

    I have an Evo, Tirant, and osprey and honestly the Tirant is really good (I use it on my 9mm sbr and 45 hk's) and that's the one I would get if u had multiple hosts, but te osprey as just as good, slightly more versatile, and looks sexy, but u gotta time the thing so it's straight Everytime u switch hosts.
