Dream gun acquired!

I've wanted an FNX-45 Tactical since they existed, and even wanted the FNP45 tactical prior.

Finally had the right funds around and found a CRAZY good deal on a basically new in box but used example. Finally got an appropriate sidearm for my main rifle!

I.... Well, I really like the looks of that gun! I swore to myself that I bought my last "black" gun, so that tan look really appeals to me! Congratulations!

Good job of posing the gun for the pictures! As a semi-pro photographer I really appreciate the art!

The high sights allow them to be used with a supressor installed. You need them to be able to see over the can.

Yup as mentioned by another member the gun is suppressor ready, so the sights can be seen above a can on the barrel. Also the gun is set up to have a micro reflex mounted and the sights can be seen through most of those as well.

That's a sweet pistol. It looks great with your SCAR. It's always a pleasure to view your quality photographs. Be sure to show us how the .45 performs at the range.

I will definitely post a range report.

I need to get the rest of the requisite gear. Holster, light, and mag holder, along with a bunch of these stupidly expensive mags, lol.

Suppressor sights are standard on the tactical model I believe.
