So today is my birfday. Yay, 21! Now, I didn't feel the need to get smashed, so I asked myself, "Hey, how can I celebrate?"

So I visited the local pawn shop. :D





It's an FNP-9. Yeah, I know, "ewww, plastic," and "ewww, 9mm." But this really is a comfy gun. It fits me very well, is light and has all the basic features I've been looking for. Brand new, came with three 16 rd. magazines and interchangeable back straps, all for a total of $630. It was $580 plus taxes.

But why 9mm? Well, this is my first "true" handgun. My dad has a .38, and I've got black powder, but this is my first auto. I figure 9mm is a good way to get introduced to it, and 9mm comes cheap.

Can't wait to take her to the range!

My first two pistols were 9mm.  A S&W 909 (horrible first trigger pull, but comfy) and a Glock 17.  I got rid of both and now have a Glock 23 .40.  There is nothing wrong with 9mm as long as you have the right ammo.  I like the Golden Sabers, but my buddy who used to be a cop swears by the Hydrashoks.
 
BTW:  Happy Birthday!

You could trade that for a hell of a tattoo.

Very nice purchase. I just recently picked up my FNP 40. I have a glock 19 9mm and wanted something new and SA/DA so that's what lead me to the FNP. It's actually a very solid piece and the composite is really nice, and it is quite comfy for a bigger hand.

The only problem I have with 9mm is finding ammo right now.

Seeing you live in TX and can't open carry, do you plan on getting a CCW?

Yes, I do intend to acquire a CHL. That was some of the motivation behind this gun. It's light and fairly compact, while still comfy for my larger hands. And here it's actually easier to find 9mm than it is .45. MUCH cheaper too. More range time was another motivator. Also, this thing has a HUGE magwell. Quickly loading a mag is a cinch.

Its easier to find than 45 by far. But I have seen it's easier to find 40 and 357 sig right now. The next gun I want will be a pain to find ammo for.
