    Belgian Police adopt S&W M&P 9mm over FNH?

    http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2...opt-sw-mp-9mm/

    Amazing! I can understand supporting S&W here in the US but the Belgian police have chosen the M&P 9mm (which I also own) over the FNX or FNP 9mm. No national pride at all. Sad. . .

    wow. I'm a bit surprised they wouldn't have gone with the FNS. The Amsterdam police I saw were carrying Hi-powers.

    I don't know if anyone else has noticed with their Fn pistols but there's not exactly the greatest fit, finish & function. While I like the FNX more than the M&P it is arguably a better or more versatile pistol.

    I have never had an issue with my FNP with either its fit/finish or its function. The main issue with FN pistols is that they are not as "popular" as other pistols.

    Agreed.

    I can find some minor issues, but it's the same with pretty much all pistols I've looked at.

    Then I was looking at the FNX. I talked to a few people.
    They said that fn's had good guns but no one I talked to had ever shot one. I hate to say this but I feel fnh is not a coman gun.
    That is one of the things I like about this gun.
    People get on here and ask "Should I buy a FN or @&$&@?"
    I feel if you have to ask then buy the other gun and we will see who has the better gun.

    I have noted that several of the high round count tactical instructor guru types have nothing good to say about FNH's pistols. But then those guys are so addicted to the Glocks and HKs that even if the perfect sidearm was invented, they would dis it if it was not made by one of the above mentioned companies.

    Those guys will see a failure in one example at a course that they teach and extrapolate that all pistols from the same manufacturer are junk.

    Because everyone knows that Glocks and HKs never fail.

    I personally love the fact that the FNX will hold its own against any duty class pistol, but isn't as common.
