It’s been said a few times that I carry a gun the size of a toaster. Yeah, the FNP-45tactical isn’t small, but really? A toaster?
Well let’s put that to the test. Something people are always concerned about is weight. Personally, I believe a good holster on a good belt will mitigate weight quite a bit. Now maybe not the weight of a classic chrome and Bakelite General Electric toaster.
It’s a big toaster. Especially for one that will only handle 2 slices of bread at a time. But it is the best toaster ever.
And it apparently weighs 4lbs 7oz. The FN?
Let’s look a little closer
1lb 15oz. Not even close.
But Jen! It’s not like you carry it empty like that! 15+1 rounds of 45ACP makes a pretty major difference in weight.
So now we’re up to 2lbs 14oz. That’s still not classic toaster weight. Maybe some of the new-fangled polymer toasters.
Oh, but I suppose we should take the reload into account as well. I mean, 30 more rounds of 45ACP…
What’s that say?
1lb 11 oz which brings us to a whopping 4lbs 8oz.
See! My carry gun is not the size of a toaster!
