    i love mine. it's my main carry.

    however, it does not have the same energy as an AR 15 as someone told you. in general, no pistol will have the same energy as a rifle. even the PS90 (the carbine user of this round) doesn't have it's energy.

    however, they are light, accurate, low recoil, and have very high capacities comparatively.

    if you use the latest, most powerful production civilian ammo that's legal (SS197), you'll still see 10-12" of penetration with yaw.

    if you reload, you can get them back up to the original SS190 energy levels (armor piercing even in ball form).

    folks will argue that it sucks and that the permanent wound cavity isn't large enough.

    i sure wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of one.

    Oh, and as for the FiveseveN, it is a full sized pistol that is rather thick and blocky. And the magazines are larger than almost any other calibre that one might carry. At least to me anyways.
    the weapon itself is very thin in width, which makes it nice to carry. i'm assuming you mean it's thick on the handle front to aft...and it is. if you don't have large hands, chances are you won't like it. however, if you do, chances are it will feel better than most any other weapon you've had in your hands. here's a pic that shows size comparison to my Glock 21SF...

    I remember you were involved in a shooting. Were these some of the weapons stolen? If so I would have been really pist.

    no. i only had 3 guns then, and he got 2 of them (glock 22 and a taurus mil pro 745C) temporarily.

    that incident renewed my interest in firearms. i now have 5 handguns, 2 rifles, and 2 shotguns. last one i got was 2 days ago (kel-tech PF9 pocket gun). somehow they just keep multiplying.

    p.s. uh, i mean i used to have that many...before the mysterious boating accident.
