I would like to know some thoughts or questions about the fn fiveseven since i have one and do carry it sometimes when i go to salt lake or ogden. This is my thoughts about it, it is kind of big framed for concealed carry but with a shoulder holster it works and it gives me a good feeling to know that i have more firepower than some bad guy does and i can penetrate body armor. Also the gun is light since it is mostly polymer and the rounds are small and dont weigh that much even with a 20 round mag.

I remember reading somewhat in the past about the FN fiveseven. I seem to recall that the gun-grabbers wanted to ban it too, which makes it a good gun in my book. :D

I don't know much about the gun, so I did a quick little search. I found a YouTube video of it being fired: FN FiveSeven 5.7x28mm

In the video, it looks like it is not hard for the woman to handle it. What's it like to shoot?

The FN fiveseven is very nice to shoot,it has very little recoil and it is fairly accurate. I put two rounds into a sign at around a hundred yards with it and me and my friend have put rounds through a log and an empty propane tank.

Those election signs make wonderful targets. Soon we'll all be able to stock up on free targets. :D

I heard that it is illegal to shoot anyones picture unless they are on the top 10 most wanted list. Any truth to this?

That's a new one for me. Utah certainly has no such law and I've never heard of a federal law to cover this. I do recall reading some years back that some private clubs/ranges wouldn't allow photos/figures as targets back East and, maybe, a few townships had such restrictions.

a box of 5.7 ammo costs around 20 dollars, you can reload it although there is not much reload data for the fn fiveseven.

Although I like the cartridge and the idea of a .224 round travelling out of a handgun at 2,000 fps+, it's still an ugly, ugly gun, in my humble opinion. :D

As an amateur photographer I was all ready to break out my explanation of who you can photograph without permission, when you need model releases, etc., and then I realized you're talking about firing bullets through a printed photo of someone. Oh, THAT kind of shoot.

Sorry, no idea. It sounds too ridiculous to be true, though (which doesn't mean it isn't, somewhere).

in response to tapehosers remark about the looks of the fn i would have to agree. Although i very much like the idea of a very fast light bullet out of a handgun. And i dont mind the looks of it and i believe the bad guys wont care what it looks like if they ever get hit with a ballistic tip round from my fiveseven.
