Ill save you lots of trouble%u2014BUY THIS GUN & BUY IT FROM BUDS!!
Now the long version...
Watch SOOTCH on youtube. I caught the FNS9C bug from him.
First, Buds is great! I chose the ACH cash discount option, and buyer beware it is truly a 5 day process time. But the minute it was complete they shipped and it arrived as expected.
Second, rumor has it this gun is being discontinued or at least not marketed and I feel that is a terrible thing. The gun is under the radar and shouldn%u2019t be. Micros like 365/hellcat are too small for me. My hands engulf them and I hit mag releases and slide releases unintentionally. The FNS9C has fantastic ergos and better than glock gen 5 trigger in my opinion. It is very easy to maintain sight picture/sight alignment while dry firing. My glock 48 tried to jump out of my hands every trigger pull. There is a little grit on the very short takeup, but the break and reset are just fine for a defense-focused pistol. Rumor has it after 500 rounds the trigger improves.
Lastly, aftermarket is somewhat limited. However warren tactical and trijicon both offer after market sights (i grabbed trijicons black rear/fiber front). There are a few night sight options as well. I also grabbed a black arch 3/4 hybrid holster w/two clips. Clinger, vedder, stealthgear, and garrett all have holster options as well.
I was torn between VP9SK, M&P 2.0 subcompact, CZ P10s, and this. All had goods and bads. FNS9C won when buds had it at a super low cost. VP9SK is limited to ten rounds in stock mags, M&P won%u2019t drop in price for a deal, and lots of trigger bite reports with P10 (before this FNS, I carried a CZ PCR everyday). I really hate the trigger safety bar like glock, CZ, and others use. The FNS9c has a nice fat trigger that shows no signs of trigger bite. Oh the the FNS is truly built like a tank. Beefy rails, front and rear serrations that grip, and the grip texture holds onto you.
I hope this helps.

I received this gun from Buds very quickly as always. I took it out the first day and put around 50 rounds of cheap ammo (from Buds) through the gun, then put some better ammo through it. As I expected, it is flawless in its performance. I own many hand guns Glock, Sig, S&W, Kahr. Taurus. to name a few. I can tell you this is fine weapon. It is very well built, shoots very well, and is very light for carry. It is now my everyday primary carry gun. The recoil is very light (but I shoot a lot of 10mm so...). I am in love with this gun

This is a great price for the quality. Fn barrels are renowned and I swear this one is more accurate than my g19. It's lighter by quite a bit more than my g19 also. I didn't like how squared the edges of the back of the grip was so I beveled them down with a Dremel. Other thing is the slide serrations work, but are kinda sharp. Slide is stiff and needs lube when you get it.

Received the FNS-9C very fast, as usual with Bid's shipping. The gun is built like a tank - typical FNH quality and workmanship. Very tight tolerances, but eats everything I feed it.
I am pleased with the recoil management and it's a great shooter with very good accuracy. I ordered the contract sights - front sight is larger and really easy for target acquisition. Even in low light, they are quite easy to use.
Only thing of note is slide spring is a little stiff which probably accounts for the low recoil. Trigger is crisp but not too light - I like that for a carry weapon.
Very happy with this purchase and the gun will be a keeper.

Buds was great to deal with, from placing my order to picking up the pistol. Ran 200 rounds thru it right out of the box with no problems or hiccups. Took it home cleaned it up , now its my EDC.
