(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?
The pistol has only a limited future in any market. Since it has no serious competition, it will continue to be profitable for FN to sell it. The high profit margin helps here.
Lacking gov't interference, the pistol will not be discontinued. The PS-90 has a bright future in the commercial market.
OF course, I was the one that said this new fangled smokeless powder was just a passing fad. Seems like it is here to stay now.
