First let me say that I am gonna be 58 years old next month. While in the Navy I competed with the old standby and all around good gun the model 1911 .45 ACP. I have owned a great variety of hand guns and have used even more.
I was all set to to buy a S&W .40 M&P, another fine gun, however, my Son (who is an Army Sergeant currently deployed to Afghanistan) bought this gun.
Well, long story short I shot his, fell in love with it, and, went out and bought one. This gun fits my hand better than the S&W, even though that was one of the S&W's best features IMHO. I can take nothing away from the S&W as I haven't fired one, but my son has put more than 3000 rounds out of his so far and has yet to even hint at a malfunction.
He absolutely gushes about his so of course I had to try it. He's right lol, now look who is gushing... The 3 dot alignment on the sights make reaquiring the target very easy and when you mount a laser sight on the rail system, you virtually can't miss.
It is of course heavier than my Gov't model .380 but is nearly as comfortable to carry concealed. I have only put about 500 rounds through my FNX so far... No malfunctions... It breaks down for cleaning in a snap and reassembles just as easily.
It has a lower centered barrel which allows you to percieve less recoil. By the way, my son and I are both lefties although we shoot equally well with either hand, this gun having ambidextrous controls makes operation seamless which ever your shooting hand preference.
One feature I really like is the chambered round indicator. This feature lets you know in an instant wheather or not you have a round chambered and are ready to shoot or not. Another selling point for me was the fact that this gun - while of Belgian origination - is now licensed to be manufactured in Fredricksburg, Virgina.
This gun fits every need AND desire I have in a handgun. If I could give it a hundred stars I would.

This has been my first .40S&W handgun, and it is very cool! I'm a lefty so the ambi controls made a huge difference in being able to shoot with comfort. I've thrown about 8 types of ammo at it and its taken them all w/o a single jam, including the crap Russian stuff.
I took this out with my brother (a LEO) and he brought his service issue Glock 22 (40S&W). He was surprised how much he liked the FNX40, and he found it to be very accurate and enjoyable to shoot.
The FNX40 has some nice features that I appreciate, including the out-of-the box ambi controls, the extra safety and the de-cocker (its a SA/DA, my preferred style). Take-down is very simple, with a simple lever when the slide is locked back, then the whole receiver slides off with ease.
My biggest gripe is that extra mags for this are $45/mag, but it already comes with three, so its not that big a deal I guess. It is a fairly new weapon, but accessories are out there for it, with more to come. It also has a picatinny rail in front of the trigger guard, so that's nice too.
All in all a great service weapon, durable, and not too big for CC.
