    I got one because i thought the bullets were pretty
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    I wish , no this type of pistol was used in a drive by shooting. Its the first time this gun has poped out here in Chicago. Its alarming to know that this pistol can fire an AP round that can go threw your vest like a hot knife on butter.

    My 50 year old CZ 52 can do the same thing, but better and cheaper.

    This whole article is much ado about nothing.

    It's the hi-velocity steel core SS190 AP ammo that makes it armor piercing - And the AP ammo is supposed to be restricted LE only.

    The civilian ammo is not armor piercing - No steel core, and reduced velocity. But it's very close to being, and it holds 20 rounds.

    It's not new either - It's been around for several years, and very expensive. CDNN Investments used to have FN Five SeveN's for almost $800, so I don't think it's gonna be very popular among the homies unless they can find one somewhere to steal.

    I agree, it's no big deal I watch these mental midget bosses running around like the world is going to end over this pistol. Rifles will go through our vests and they make pistols that fire rifle cartridges. They are making this out to be a lot bigger than it is.

    Speaking of that, I still haven't found a holster for this thing, but it's cheaper than a FiveSeveN
