FN 509 LS Edge – The Ultimate Self-Defense Gun?

FN 509 LS Edge – The Ultimate Self-Defense Gun?

FN 509 LS Edge

This is the FN 509 LS Edge a whole brand spanking new gun from FN, but you know that because you’ve never seen this gun before. The FN 509 LS Edge is FN attempt at creating the ultimate defensive handgun. At least that’s how I see it.

Usually, when I see a handgun with a five-inch barrel I assume it’s going to flippy as hell and take forever to return back to the battery, which is why I’ve never really been a fan of the Glock 34. I know some people love it, I can’t really stand it.

I like to shoot fast so I notice things like this, which Is why I typically like shooting handguns with shorter slides. Apparently, I’m not the only person aware of long handgun slides’ tendency to be flippy and take ions to return back to the battery, because FN clearly did everything in their power to mitigate those things on the LS Edge.

They added lighting cuts to make the slide lighter and thus track faster and minimize the amount of weight that will hang off the back of the gun under recoil. This in turn makes follow-up shots a lot easier. But, considering the LS edge comes with a patented optics mounting system, the gun’s long sight radius became inconsequential once I put a Leupold delta point pro on the gun.

But, if you run irons just now you the LS Edge has a long sight radius. Call me crazy, but if a gun isn’t designed for concealed carry, It should have the most aggressive grip texture short of causing pain.

A big part of being able to control your gun is getting a good grip on the gun. My hands tend to be ashy so I’m constantly putting lotion on, so I like my guns to be grippy. I don’t really know what to call the grip texture on the LS Edge, but it looks like what my hair looks like when I don’t brush or pick it out, so I’ll just call it NAPPY, but it is very grippy even when I put on a ton of lotion to shoot this shot.

The LS EDGE comes with a 5” target-crowned, hammer-forged barrel. I’ll be honest and say, I don’t know what the hell target-crowned means. I googled it and it has something to do with protecting the rifling of the barrel thus making the gun more accurate. So I took some NOSLER match ammo, found a still target, and shot it over and over in the exact same spot, and well, you can see for yourself.

The trigger of the LS Edge is a Flat-Faced, facet-edge trigger that breaks cleanly at 90 degrees. Hearing me say all of that means nothing. You have to actually shoot it and experience it to really understand. It kind of makes the gun feel like it’s easier to shoot. Initially, I wasn’t really blown away by it. However, after shooting it extensively, I started appreciating the 90-degree break.

That said, I think triggers are subjective and I can some people loving it and some people being a bit indifferent, but no one is going to walk away saying they hate the trigger. This gun looks damn good, and I mean damn good. Like I really mean damn good. The contrasting graphic PVD Finish and the Black frame is just pure sex if you ask me and the gun just has a presence to it that is usually only achieved by steel-framed guns.

As I’ve said before in many videos, I have the hands of a hobbit, so I can get really annoyed by a magazine release that’s hard to actuate. In the case of the 509 LS Edge, I was always able to easily find the Oversized, knurled magazine release.

I tend to favor guns with shorter slides. I did a review on the FN 509 Compact MRD and I freaking loved it, so clearly FN can do shorter slide guns, but clearly, FN wanted to take it up a notch and create one of the most complete guns they’ve ever created and not only did they create it, I think they killed it.

  3. Wayne Johnston on May 25, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    This dude shoots like a beast👍

  4. D-op1 on May 25, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Did FN fix the atrocious trigger yet. I held this and the trigger is the worst trigger I have felt period. Especially for a gun well over a thousand dollars.

  5. Andrew Simione on May 25, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    the leg lotion had me dying.

  6. Carlos M. Rodriguez on May 25, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    Second mortgage here I come.

  7. William Young on May 25, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    Yes it’s very sexy!! I have the Glock 34 and 35 and I’ll be getting the 509 LS👍🏾

  8. Justin Balmes on May 25, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    You’re a super smart dude and frequently offer/provide great info- BUT, the background “Trap” music is shit.

  9. Hunter Jackson on May 25, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    Not sure how this compared to a glock 19 for concealed, but glocks are hella cheap. Interested in this gun tho. Id love to get trigger time and see how it feels

  10. Ghost13 on May 25, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    You know I love your vids so much ide subscribe twice if I could.

  11. Me weaver on May 25, 2022 at 7:02 pm

  13. Wildcat 859 on May 25, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Wish I could find a range like that here in Ky. I want a place that you don’t need to stand in one lane and can’t move around. In a real world scenario it’s not gonna be someone straight in front of you and probably won’t be just standing still. Another great video as well. Thank you sir

  14. LPG Q-Smokez on May 25, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    I will not comply

  15. pine apple on May 25, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Is that "Moon walking in Calabasas"

  19. Arin Thompson on May 25, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Good review but nappy….you could’ve came up with a better word for that

  20. Dave Me on May 25, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    Damn you Colion. I just bought a G34 Gen4 and after watching this I wish I did more homework of FN offerings. I probably would have spent the extra $ after seeing this 🙁

    But on a positive note I will be buying a 509 for CC use. Just narrowing down which one to grab 🙂

  21. David Bascur on May 25, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    It rubs the lotion on its skin…!

  22. 2 Many Remote Controllers on May 25, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    No thread barrel means bad for home defense.

  23. Dennis L on May 25, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Come on! I don’t care how cool the trigger looks, but at 6 – 7 pounds, it leave a lot to be desired on a $1,500 gun. They need to do a lot better than that!!!

    Looking to get an fn. Thanks man!

  31. SNAKE IN THE GRASS on May 25, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Nice shooting man

  32. Decidueye on May 25, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Nah. Anything in 9mm is automatically disqualified from being considered the ultimate self defense gun. There’s better rounds out there. Even rounds that do everything it does but better.

  33. Mike charette on May 25, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Yeah and it’s like 3k or something. Nice gun though.

  34. Ricky Valencia on May 25, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    Very nice video! great content. What is the name of range?

  35. Steven B on May 25, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    You did a great job in reviewing the FN 509 LS Edge. I am always amazed at your shooting locations, which almost makes me envious of your selections. Is it worth buying it? What is the price? Did you take down your other video regarding the FN 509 LS Edge, I was really hoping to view it? Have you though of uploading on alternative video programs besides YouTube? Have you heard of Rumble?

  36. Mexican Joker on May 25, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    im buying MERUICA

  37. coin bureau⚪️ on May 25, 2022 at 7:28 pm
