One of the nice things about standing behind the counter is that while I may only shoot a few rounds through a given gun I speak to a lot of people who, collectively, shoot a lot of rounds through a lot of guns and that is a great insight beyond what works best for me. The FNH FNP-45 is an example of a fantastic firearm that doesn’t work well for me but is a great gun for plenty of other people.
The reliability of the FNP-45 has proven top notch, it’s been behind the counter as a popular rental gun for a number of months now without a problem or a single reported malfunction (that I was present for). It runs dirty, it runs clean, it runs dry and it runs after it hasn’t been rented for a while. The checkered grips, adjustable backstrap and 15+1 round capacity make it one of our most requested polymer .45 rental guns. With the benefit of a high capacity, however, comes the downside of this gun being huge, something that a lot of people comment on upon first inspection of the firearm, also something that certainly hasn’t hurt the gun’s popularity.
I am, personally, not a fan of the brick-like ergonomics and the giant grip (a consequence of trying to cram 15 rounds of .45 ACP into a firearm), but if you want something that will run forever and you are worried about having to shoot 15 people at once and think the only cartridge man should ever need is the .45 ACP then the FNP-45 is definitely the way to go.
