thanks man. as of right now they don't sell the cases individually. would be cool if they did though, it's pretty sweet.
Pretty sure in a thread elsewhere we tracked down the case, it just doesn't have the FN logo.

Cool, I didn't know that. I wouldn't mind having a few more for other firearms if that's the case.

I thought so too; Eagle was the first site I checked. Didn't look right, checked Google, and if you look at the Blackhawk one I'm pretty sure that's it.

Bones-

go to blackhawk, they have a case very similar (if not the same) called a SOCOM gun case. I got one (in black) for my glock 40 (too bad the FN 5.7 won't fit without making crazy mods :ponder: )

Cheers!

My HK USP Tactical came with the same type of bag, but it was grey.

I'm so tempted to get one of these.

Funny how the "lock" pouch looks perfect for a suppressor....

it actually is a suppressor pouch, but holds the lock until the day it's ready for it's true calling!

Yep, and I can tell you that my Gemtech Blackside fits ever-so-perfectly in there!

Great gun, congrats on your purchase!!!

That sucks. Since it's being so neglected I'll give you $500 for it. :lmao:






I'm joking of course. Unless you're willing to sell.

Ah, the .45ACP is a great suppressed setup. Big heavy bullet going slow/subsonic.

And that pistol is one of a few I'd get in .45ACP, as I don't like being limited to a few rounds, and I have big hands, so the size of this pistol to fit the 15 round magazine is fine with me.

The color combo is excellent as well as the metal parts being stainless.

What is the best suppressor for the .45ACP? I would like to get one that I could also use on my 9mm with the right barrel.

I read that the 9mm versions can be used on .223/.22LR and the 5.7 rounds with good results.

Anyone tried using a .45ACP suppressor on smaller caliber weapons? I think it would compromise some of the effect, but if it's not too much, that would make buying one suppressor much more cost effective for me.

Silencer Co Osprey or ACC TiRant are the best 45 suppressors out right now with the edge going to the new TiRant so you can take it apart.

Young, the FN TAC has the lowest .45 recoil out of any handgun platform I've ever fired.

It will eat custom 1911's for breakfast. Don't shoot it next to the rich cocky guy or you'll make him cry.

I emptied a magazine accurately in ~1/2 the time it would take for a 1911 to do the same.
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.

The case that comes with it is an Eagle Industries Case, but they don't sell it separate. Blackhawk makes the same set up in their SOCOM case. Only comes in black though, not tan.

i know man, it's bad to the bone. i had a regular FNP-45 that i sold to help fund this one. i plan on using it in 3 gun and any other pistol matches i'm able to get into. only problem is ALL of the local matches are on Sundays and I work Sundays...booooo.... :wall:
