    FNP 45 Tactical (might want to trade yours for a Tactical) USP Tactical, Mark 23.. USP 45, USP COMPACT 45. those are all the polymer 45s i would consider (since your FNP is Plastic) i would recomend a USP 45C or maybe a CT since i have one.. oH almost forgot Sig P220 or P220R for the non plastic..

    The FNP 45 is more or less a P220 done right, that is, it's double stacked, the configuration people have wanted from Sig for decades. And it's available much more cheaply than a Sig. The P220 is definitely fancier, but in terms of a carry gun, it is sorely lacking compared to the excellent FNP for no other reason than capacity.

    The only exception is if you like a bigger bulge from your backstrap area, and can't handle a double stack .45 with such a grip. Then, and only then a P220 can make the most sense.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Ummm...name is April Fool's. So I'm not gonna put much effort into it, yet it's a completely honest and perfect answer.

    1911

    Ive got nothing against a 1911 but for me personally the grip is too small. Im going to look at a friends fnp tactical next week. I dont see whats so great about a 1911 my fnp 45 out performs my dads 1911 all day long... just dont get it. Im checking on a sig sauer p220 combat with a threaded barrel. thanks for the replies. Its my money so I and just asking for recommendations. Thanks again.

    I own both the FNP-45 and Sig P220's "and" H&K USP in 45. The FNP-45 is like a child of the P220+USP in my opinion! The FNP-45 is bigger than the Sig and USP but shares qualities of both. Also the FNP-45 shoots VERY well!!!

    So if you like the FNP-45 you WILL like either a Sig P220 or an H&K USP. All are easy to breakdown and clean and all shoot well out of the box.

    Sometimes it helps if you have a purpose in mind for your next purchase like "mainly-CC" or "Range-Gun", or "Wilderness-Gun. Another category is "Cost less than I have in my checking account-Gun" :-). If you want a decent gun for CC try a Taurus PT145 millenium. If you read through the forum you will see some people complaining about them and others that love them. I love mine. I guess there are lemons out there though. The PT145 is 45acp, 10+1 with thumb safety and a few other features like loaded chamber indicator (hard to see), locking mechanism (don't use). The best feature is that it fits in my front pocket when I wear jeans or khaki shorts. So it is my main CC/BUG and usually a SIG/H&K/FN/1911 on my hip OC-ing.
