If you’re not familiar with FNH USA’s FNX pistols, they’re aggressively-textured polymer pistols that draw on Browning designs, not just for the breech lock but also in the grip, making them some of the most comfortable guns out there. They have a very long lock time which keeps the recoil down, even with the hottest loads.
They’re DA/SA pistols with a decocking safety. That’s about the only complaint people tend to have about these pistols, because down is fire and down again decocks it, but there is enough resistance in the decocker to prevent that from being a real-world problem. Naturally they can be carried cocked and locked. They also have very nice factory triggers, with smooth DA pulls at about 9 pounds and clean-breaking SA pulls at 4.
