    Default FN Five-Seven

    Anybody else have a chance to shoot one of these things?? Today I shot my friend's for the 2nd time. What a fantastic pistol. I have nothing negative to say about it. It's accurate even when you're blazing away, recoil isn't much worse than a .22LR, and that 5.7x28 round is wicked. It's easy to get tight groups even at 50 yds. This thing might be the ultimate SHTF pistol.

    Pitty ammo is relatively scarce, though. I have not had a chance to try it myself but read a number of very positive reviews and got quite interested. Something new like this does not come along all that often.

    I have found ammo in a bundance here at the Sportsman's warehouse in Chattanooga TN. around 20 bucks for 50 rounds, better than what iam finding it online. they had about 2000 to 3000 round in stock last week.

    My firend has no problem getting ammo for it down here in S. Florida. I've even seen quite a bit of it at Bass Pro Shops/Outdoor World.

    Back to the pistol......it's almost like a one-handed AR-15. 2,000 fps from a handgun is crazy. And I still can't get over how slight the recoil is. Gotta start saving my pennies......

    Default five seven

    I own a five-seven and love it. No recoil and the 20 round mag is very nice and doesn't add much weight. I also own the five-seven AR-15 upper and that also is a must have if you like five-seven products.

    I have one. I love it. My every day carry gun, and it is great at the range. I am not as good as lot of other people when it comes to long range accuracy, but I am not bad. Some people got good groupings at 100 yards. It was the first gun I ever bought, and I love it. It is out at a gunsmith to improve it. It is loud, and the muzzle flash is very bright, but it is a great gun. Almost no recoil, and it is quite light even though it holds 20 rounds.

    Ammo is no longer scarce. It is readily available online at places like ammo to go, and other places. SS197 goes for around $20 per box of 50 while SS195 is a bit more. If you buy in bulk, you can get the price down even more.

    Probably a bad idea to tell you about the AR57... That is what I am saving money for.

    The FsN is great. I am looking at the AR57 upper receiver. Kind of expensive, but one of these days I will be able to afford it.

    Oh, I already know all about that one. My buddy has one of those too! I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet.....maybe next weekend I can drag him to the outdoor range.
