I've had the FNS-9C on my list of future acquisitions since it came out. Some time around a month ago it leapfrogged to the top. After a few weeks of searching every day for a deal, I found what I was looking for on GunBroker and shortly after it was in my possession. The whole experience was great!
So today I was able to try it out for the first time. I was shocked by how well it handled. I was expecting a lot of flip and more recoil, but it was quite tame. I shot 85 rounds of three different kinds of ammo: WWB, Sig Sauer Elite Performance and Geco, all of which were 115 gr & functioned flawlessly. I didn't even notice any difference in my accuracy, considering I am used to the longer barreled variant. I was able to knock around soda cans and golf balls at 40+ feet. Our host / range officer explained that he felt like 'an isolationist on Glock island'... he couldn't see passed his own brand. Now he knows there are other options... better options out there.
