FN is back! Once again, the Belgian-born gunmaker’s bringing the noise to the 2015 Texas Firearms Festival on November 14 and 15 at Best of the West Shooting Sports in Liberty Hill. “We’ll be bringing a lot of guns,” FN’s Wright Llewallen promises. “We don’t want to go home with a single one.” Aside from sampling the handguns and rifles they’ll be demoing in their bay, ticket holders will have a shot at a wider range of Festival-priced FN’s to go. Specifically . . .
- FNS-9 and FNS-9c (9mm and .40)
- P90 bullpup rifle
- SCAR-17 modern sporting rifle
- FN 15 – DMR, Tactical and 1776 models
- SLP 3-gun shotgun
- SCI over-and-under shotgun
FNH USA is also bringing their FiveseveN pistol (Texas Governor Perry’s bedside gun) and FNX-45 Tactical. On the firing line, Shooter and VIP ticket holders will get trigger time with their choice of an FNS-9, FNS-9c or FNX-9 pistol; or a FN15 rifle (exact model to be named later). A brief look at those guns . . .
FNS-9/FNX-9 – Developed for the armed forces, the double-action, striker-fired FNS-9 is fully ambidextrous (slide stop lever and magazine release) for ease of operation with either hand, from any firing position. The gun’s MIL-STD 1913 mounting rail accommodates tactical lights and lasers. The slide and barrel are stainless steel; the latter cold hammer forged for durability, reliability and long-term accuracy. The guns’ checkered polymer frame has two interchangeable backstraps with lanyard eyelets.
FN 15 – Like the pistols, the FN15 is also built to “withstand the varied and unrelentingly harsh conditions of battlefields around the world, ready to perform in any condition on the firing line.” The FN15 is also available with a cold hammer forged barrel. If you want to own a rifle that look, shoots and carries like a mil spec AR15, FN’s got the gun for you.
Be warned! If you don’t want to be tempted to add an FN firearm to your collection, a gun that will become a legacy for your descendants, don’t come and shoot the FNS-9 and FN15.
