FN America has put together a solid working pistol here with an eye toward reliability, shooting comfort, accuracy, and long term function. It is soft shooting, accurate, and includes features geared toward working in most any condition. It works with any ammunition I could find, and carries well both with and without a light. If you want a pistol you can carry with the confidence that it will work when you need it to, the FN509 is an excellent choice. See it at your gun shop, or contact FN America, Dept.
