I was really interested in getting one. Had the opportunity to rent one and try it before buying and found I hated the grip.

I understand.

It is not a fit for everyone, for sure.

It's, definitely not like holding a SIG. I didn't think of the grip as slick, but I'm not a huge fan of it either. Too square. More so than a Glock. I've described it as feeling like I'm holding a rough hewn 2x4. It is pushing the upper limit of what I can grip properly and get a good trigger finger placement. And only with the straight back strap. But for some reason, I can shoot it well, and I honestly can't explain why. I just can.

At the time I bought it, I just badly wanted a high-capacity .45ACP that was reliable. I had just come off a bad relationship with a Para-USA 14.45 Black Ops that was a serious p.o.s. It was beautiful and fit my hand perfectly but the factory could not make the damned things work. Lots of different problems with their manufacturing process that ultimately killed the brand. So, after losing my shirt unloading that gun and all the mags for it, I bought the FNX-45 on the rebound. Glad I did. It eats anything I feed it and I can't make it fail. And fortunately, I can shoot it well.

So that's why I have it. And it can be operated with the same manual of arms as a DA/SA SIG, so it won't screw up my muscle memory.

I briefly had a P227. Couldnít figure out why Iíd shoot it instead of my P220 or 1911.
I shoot the 227 better than my 226 or 229.
I have the Tacops...14 rds.

I shoot the P226 the best.
A P226 was my first SIG and the P226 is still my favorite model. . Any flavor.
