I did not set up this club, but I could not resist the temptation to baptize it with the first post and thread. I had an opportunity to shoot both the FN carbine and the pistol briefly some time ago. Found both intriguing, and would like an opportunity to shoot the pistol once again. My two questions: (1) Does anyone think that the FN pistol has much of a civilian-commercial or military future? (2) Will the pistol be discontinued, but the carbine live on for specialized military/police users and as a civilian-owned oddity?
