Default FNS Longslide - it may become my favorite 9mm!!

Full report here:


I have put very few rounds thru it but it has functioned flawlessly and I am accurate with it! Xtra shots for the ERCS:

With Geco ammo at 18 yards:

on another target at 18 yards:

no misses at that distance....

Here is the popper at 28 yards with two misses but the five hits grouped nicely:

A near miss on the knockdown at 32 yards with Geco:

But a near miss is.....a hit!!
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.

They are very accurate pistols. I had the std FNS-9 a few years ago. I was at an outdoor range and had a squirrel running around while I was shooting. It was maybe 20 yards away, I took a shot and hit it. Probably more luck then anything, but that didn't stop me from bragging.

Thumbs up

As usual glockensig, good shooting! Panther, that's a mighty fine shooting to nail a squirrel at 20 yards with a pistol.
