    I enjoyed that review - thanks. I wonder what he would think of the PS90.

    This ammo? Nope.
    For SD, a HST 124/147 gr. 9mm +P or 180 gr. 40 S&W HST out of a Glock 19/23 - 17/22 be better - IMO.
    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.

    Our Sheriff's office SWAT team used to use the PS90 in 5.7. They replaced them after a short while, and I have been told that poor real-world shooting performance was the reason.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    I'm with Mike - it may not be my first choice of caliber, but I wouldn't have a problem with carrying it.

    I owned two of the handguns and had PS90 for awhile. I can say this about them.

    They are big but they are light weight easy to carry but tough to conceal.
    They are laser accurate and easy to put multiple rounds on target in short time frames.
    Ammo is expensive and hard to find.
    My wife and I both used them to qualify for one of our SD classes we had the highest scores of the class of 25 students. Like I said easy to shoot.

    I sold the, all because feeding those bad boys was expensive and I there was just not enough real world SD shooting results to feel comfortable with thier potential for stopping a threat should need arise.

    My wife and I both carry Glock 43. I also carry a miriad of other weapons (mostly my Glock 19) as the situation dictates but 9mm with 148 Grain HST is the smallest caliber for wither of us because that round has a good real world reputation for stopping a threat. Pocket carry is simple S&W 38 special +P model 442 Enhanced. great guns the 5.7 the concept is solid more funds less weight in other words firepower but me I lean towards solid evidence the gun I carry has proven itself in the task I use it for.

    The FN Five-seveN was my top choice for carry gun, when I was in the market for my very first. Ultimately, I chose against it because of the sheer cost to feed that beast. I wanted something with a much more common caliber for my first, so I wound up with my PPQ.

    That doesn't mean I don't want one. A friend of mine had one for years (since before the stupid mag limit law here), and swears by it. Not sure how much studying he's done on ballistics and real-world performance.

    My EDC: PPQ M2 9mm in a Long's Shadow Antero IWB Holster, A custom mag/Leatherman/Flashlight carrier, and a folding knife. Also, my cell phone, and some fully-functional gray matter between my ears.

    Prices are lower right now.

    That's why I'm stocking up.

    Regarding the arguments made comparing the Glock 33 round magazine vs the FN magazine - here's a Glock 19 with the 33 rounder and the FN with a 30 rounder. One might be somewhat reasonable to carry concealed; one might not.

    Where are 30 round magazines sold for the FN? I would love to grab a few.
