    What kind of fiber optics are on there? I like 'em.

    I have an HK P2000sk which I like and an FNS Compact .40. I've been trying to sell the FN, but it's tough to move .40s now. And FN's hiccup with their strikers didn't help any. I like the FN, just didn't think I needed 2 .40s. But I think now I will rescue it from the LGS consignment case and put an optic on it.

    Well said. The .40 is outstanding for what it is and it’s proven without ammo caveats if you can handle it. I am one of those who can.

    During that shortage is when I first noticed the only ammo left in relative abundance was .40 so I decided to go for one. Built 2 instead. Enjoy shooting them
    Even with this last Walmart sell off the last ammo left was .40

    If New Jersey makes hollowpoints illegal to possess (they are entirely legal in specified circumstances), then it would be interesting to see what calibers go up in demand. Would it be the .45 ACP to make up for the diameter lost from hollowpoints?

    Is that seriously being debated by NJ buercrats?

    If so, I can believe it because trapshooters travel to shoots a lot and are always complaining about it.

    I’m hoping that .40 stays unpopular a bit longer as I need to grab a second G27.4. Love the one I have and would not mind buying another. I had lucky timing on the most recent one and was asking about one at my LGS when a buddy behind the counter told me to hang around a bit. Someone was in the process of trading their G27.4 in cheap and it came home with me for $50 over what the shop had paid the PO for it. I got a like new G27 for $350 out the door and they flipped a gun that they had little interest in selling quickly.

    * Don't forget , you can always add a 9mm barrel to your G27 as well adding to the versatility !
