Got the FNP 9 da/sa stainless slide today, If you recently purchased check http://www.fnhusa.com/le/promos/09shooterspack.asp
Free shooters pack for new owners!
I even emailed them to try and buy one for the FNP-45 and they steered me to Bladetech.
Not completely true. FNH USA lists four FNP-45 item numbers that include a Shooter's Pack right from the get-go. There is an upcharge compared to buying the gun alone but it is less than if you bought the Bladetech stuff separately.
Nevertheless, don't feel left out. It's not that great a deal even when free. The paddle is useless because it doesn't keep the holster on your belt. The entire rig comes off still attached to your gun even when the holster tension screws are almost ready to fall out. The mag pouch doesn't retain your backup ammo with enough security in case of a fall. It doesn't even provide much of a friction fit. It would be okay for square range practice but that's about it. I have my doubts the mags would be retained throughout a normal IDPA or USPSA match.
The holster itself isn't bad beyond its bulk and lack of comfort compared to a leather holster. Just be sure to use it with the standard belt loop attachment and not the paddle. If you want a good Kydex holster, try Bladetech's UCH
. Until trying one I never would've thought a plastic IWB holster could be comfortable while allowing one-handed reholstering. This one proved me wrong.
