So I just shot the FN Five-Seven Pistol. Very nice I will say. I dont know when it was last cleaned though, I had rented it at a shooting range to test it out since I am not 21 and cant own a pistol in Mass. Only problem I had was that it would jam periodically which I couldnt figure out why. Something with the mag the rounds wouldnt chamber. only happened twice though.

Easy to load the magazine, just like loading 5.56 rounds in a M16 mag, the 5.7 rounds slide in nice and easy.

Recoil is minimal. easily less than a 9mm, a hell of a lot less than a 357. trigger pull is extremely light too.

awesome gun, had it been mine i would have worried more about that jam problem i encountered, but i only shot 50 rounds at roughly 50 feet.

um not really. I already know I'm a man. Its defiantly not the first gun Ive shot. Just a fun pistol to shoot. Why would shooting a gun make me fee like a man? Lots of women shoot to, does that make them butch?

I wasn't even sure if that thing was going to be legal in MA, but I guess they must make low-cap mags for them. Those things used to seem so exotic to me since the only ammo they made was illegal and armor-peircing and you couldn't get it. Now with the civilian rounds it seems kind of lame except for the 20 round mag and high velocity bullet.

Good for you?

Shooting guns gets more and more boring as I get older. Sad but true.

Picked one up at a show this weekend. Had glanced at them previously, but never stopped to actually get a feel for it. MUCH lighter than I expected it to be. Didn't see anyone buying any though. Did see a few walk away with the more expensive PS90s.

Interesting piece... but beyond my budget, in regards to longterm "feeding". The initial shell out for the handgun actually isn't all that bad.

But... no 5.7x28 for me! I did decide on the piece sitting two rows down though. Not quite as lightweight, and a more conventional 45ACP.   


Surprised it jammed on you so frequently. Did you inquire with the range to see what might have been the cause?

God. You anti-gun people drive me crazy. All he did was report his experiences with a pistol, and it's all like, "OMG! I bet you're a man now!" or "I bet you think your penis is SO big now!"

There's no reason for it. I am a weapons enthusiast (read: gun nut) and I don't do it to "compensate" for anything and I don't do it to make me feel like a man. I enjoy shooting because it is a fun past time. I target/skeet shoot, and I enjoy pressing myself to better my skills. I don't hunt. I don't intend on "using" a pistol unless I need to. I just enjoy the technology. Does that make me some hick from the south, because I like guns?

If I swore, there'd be some choice words for you.

^^^i'm with detrevni.  firearms are a past-time, just like baseball.  also, if we didn't have them, do you have any idea how many of us would have been eaten by bears? 

also, i don't hunt.

Granted, there are a few gun-nuts that give the rest of gun owners a bad name, but the idiots are a minority.

Anyone ever heard of the US Palma Team?

I to love shooting myself and I don't see why everyone hates fire arms so much. I mean as long as they are in the right hands they can be really safe.

Actually, the anti-gun people here on this forum make me laugh.

They'll whip out some smart comment somehow linking the use of/speaking of a firearm with penis jousting... and yet at the same time, have no qualms gizzing all over themselves about how their electro can shoot so fast it will 'mow your face off'. But of course, Kristofer is the one with penis envy.

It's a gun. It shoots lead, copper and/or steel instead of paint. You can call your equipment a "marker" all you want... it's still a GUN too.

Oh... but I guess the difference is, us users of firearms are all Charles Bronson wannabes, as the only legitmate use of firearms is for killing people. I forgot. How silly of me.

Five sevens intrigue me, but I have very little experience with handguns.

I am not anti-gun. I own various firearms.

Oh, and Shorty, I don't play paintball either. I find it a boring hobby.

I just enjoy giving the over-sensitive gun nuts a hard time to watch them scramble and whine.
