    Kelcarry, you lucky dog! I am so jealous that you now have one, and you saved about $200 on the purchase, too. I really hope you enjoy it! :D

Got to bite the bullet and practice a bit, but my hope is that I will be nicely surprised by the low recoil and find the FN to be REEEAL EASY.
    Wow! $870 is still steep but a good price from what I've seen at the local shop. They have one NIB listed "on sale" for $945. Still with my expense account, I can't justify it. Well... let us all know if it lives up to your expectations. And PICTURES man!

    Got a surprise birthday present---since I am author of this thread I have been talking about the 5.7 for some time. Wife agreed that it would be a nice present. Picking it up tomorrow. Took delivery of some 195LF cartridges today and am looking forward to later in the week at the range.

    Enjoy your time at the range as I am sure you will enjoy the FsN. Let us know how you like it.

To those of you who expressed interest in this thread, perhaps you have opinions on self defense ammunition for the firearm. Leaning to 195 hollows for home defense and 197s for range. I do know there is Elite Ammunition out there which is custom and expensive, and seems to be more than what I need for home/self defense. I am not looking to fire this gun at distances greater than say 30 ft and I think the 195 hollow will do the trick. Comments?
    Read my posts in this thread. they discuss 5.7mm ammo in detail.

    To summarize, you want Elite S4 ammunition.
    I am Infantry, follow me!

  7. For the record, the 195 is not a hollowpoint, it is otm. It does not expand on impact. The SS192, 195 and Elite S4 are tumbling rounds. Elite S4 also adds a fragmentation effect due to the fact it is travelling some 500-600fps faster than FN SS195.
