Mas, Now that WI has woke up and passed the CCW law we have taken a course and have been doing research and started training for the right to carry. I have long been a fan of the FNH Five Seven. My wife is a small gal and she shoots the 5.7 very well and likes the way it handles. Strange considering she has small hands but she believes in it and hits what she shoots at. She had a real issue with 38 special in a S&W scandium frame revolver and was inconsistent that is why I suggested she try the 5.7. I tried smaller semi autos but racking the slide was problematic and she can rack the slide on the FNH with out trouble. I also have one with a Viridian C5 mounted. I love it it is very accurate and although it may not be the cheapest to practice with I purchase 1000 rds at time and we shoot shoot shoot. What do you think of the Five Seven as a SD round? I understand their is little if any data on the 5.7 as a SD round and what may be out there is not available to regular public. By the way the ammo we use is the Blue Tip FN ammo.
