FN USA / NRA discount for NRA Certified Instructors on FNP series.

Usual disclaimer:

I do not work for the NRA.


FN's website:
http://www.fnhusa.com/le/index.asp
http://www.fnhusa1.com/PDF/FNH_NRA_Flyer.pdf

NRA's instructor website: (actually hot links to same info on FN's site...)

http://www.fnhusa1.com/PDF/FNH_NRA_F...3NRAinstructor

They are offering this gun for $1 UNDER the price from wholesale to FFLs @ $494 (or so I heard, on the wholesale to retail price by a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy whose brother works at a gunshop!)

Wasn't really interested in this model - but at that price, I might be now.

I am not a fan of flat earth, but it actually looks pretty good on the FNP...

I like their guns, and have shot many of the different handguns and long guns.

For $375, with three mags and the case, I am all over this come Monday. Remember that wholesale is $100 MORE.

This is an awesome deal, and their guns are rock-solid.

I was waiting for the FNX to come out, but this is a good deal. Is that $375 shipped? I didn't see it mentioned on the form..

That's a great price. I never gave much thought to FN but that gets me thinking. Thanks Drew.

I priced them on Gunbroker and generally the low price was still $75 more than this special... me thinks it a good deal.

We have any product assesments from anyone who has shot an FNP-9 USG??

FDE is a discontinued color. Suspect eventually the whole FNP line will be replaced by the FNX.

What would youse like to know?

...and no, far from it, I don't think FN is in dire financial straights.

It's a good price, but not if the line has issues... was asking if anyone owned one and could opine on it: Accurate? Dependable? Ergonomics? Location of safeties and what nots?

If you go to FN's site it makes the features/setup pretty evident. They even have links to magazine reviews/articles.

Additionally, there are lot's of reviews from folks online. The only thing I don't like is that it can't be carried cocked and locked.

So is this a, "yes, I own one and I like it," a, "yes, I own one and don't like it," or a, "I don't own own?"

Where is option D: I used one for two days of handgun classes, put 450 rounds thru it, worked like a charm?

Don't currently own one, but have shot one, and I am considering one. The one I shot allowed condition 1 carry but is no longer available. The replacement FNX model does so I am still undecided.

I am a little disappointed that CompTac does not appear to make holsters for either...
