[quote]will be buying my concealed pistol, the FNS 9c,[/quote] The FNS9c is a great gun but I'd probably recommend getting a single stack for your first CC gun since you get more flexibility in what attire you can wear. But if you're willing to accept the width of a double stack then that's a sol...

[quote]bapp, what's the main difference between the FNS and FNX models? [/quote] The "S" stands for "striker." The FNX is a hammer-fired version. I'm pretty sure it's the evolution of the old FNP but I could be wrong. [quote]You should do the writing for your videos and let him narrate [/qu...
