While most of the industry would call this size a compact pistol, FN is more accurate in calling it midsized.

This firearm is full-size and I wanted another full-size the extras were just topping on the cake. I tried to purchase it over Christmas break but was unable to get it for the timeline. I have yet to be able to shoot the pistol but maybe in a few weeks I will be able to get to a range. I am in a new state and still learning everything.

The 509 of mine is a 4in barrel, 17rnd mags, night sites and it can be had for $729 at bass pro for the one I got. It can be found cheaper at other stores and in many different configurations.
