Ordered a FN Five-seveN today.

Should have it Friday. Anyone have one? Carry one?
Should be a fun plinker.

Thoughts? Expierence?

Don't have one. The 5.7x28 is intriguing, and FN makes nice stuff.

I like their commercials on conservative radio.

Will be looking forward to the range report. I'm sure it's going to be fun to shoot. The only drawback for me would be the cost of ammo. At $.40+ per round I'd be limited with how much recreational shooting I'd be able to do. For a defensive cartridge in a home defense weapon it's a great option though. That pistol and cartridge are used by many law enforcement agencies in advanced nations worldwide. You're in good company.

We acquired one in a trade. We don't shoot it much since the ammo is so pricey. We've also found the pistol is much less accurate than we would like. We may replace the sights at some point, but that doesn't change the price of feeding it...

It is a popular gun for our friends to look at & run a couple rounds through & we've never had any mechanical issues with it.

Itís a great gun. First time I shot it I hit smack dab in the bullseye with SS197.

I purchased 2000 rounds from Palmetto State Armory (PSA) when they had them for $15 a box.

It is a soft recoil pistol with a decent capacity of 20+1. I never got the 30 round conversion, but since this is an expensive round, I donít load more than 6 at a time.

I had a spare Trijicon RMR Dual Illumnination so I found a company that sells a mount.

I bought an IWB holster for it, and itís easy to conceal.

No issues with reliability.

The plastic grocery bag trick is what I use to break in a leather or leather hybrid holster.
