FN does make nice guns and it looks like that one shoots really well with the right ammo. The only FN I ever owned was years ago. It was essentially the same gun as the Browning HP, but must have been made for military use. It had kind of a ladder rear sight and if I remember right it was adjustable out to 300 meters or so. (Well beyond my capabilities.)

You seem to shoot that one well. I've been following your range reports, and with LAX ammo, it seems to shoot better than any of the others I've noticed. Shooting guns like the FN and Sigs take some extra practice. I used to shoot P-Series Rugers a lot and I had a difficult time making the transition between double and single action. In drills my first shot was usually good, my second bad, and subsequent shots were good. I also shot 1911's a lot and decided that I was not coordinated enough to switch from the 1911's to the Rugers effectively. I know, I know... it's a training issue. Some folks handle it well and then there's me.

Good report - keep 'em coming!

I have shot LAX with great success in 357Sig! I have also used their 9mm and 38s Spcl and it runs great as well. Their 180gr 40S&W functions perfectly but I haven't gotten great accuracy with it.
Since it comes from LA, shipping is a killer - HOWEVER, if you get on their e-mail list, they frequently have free shipping deals (at least every holiday).
DA to SA is tough...and tougher on some pistols than others. The DA-SA decock- only controls have become my favorite set-up tho'
