That is like the Chevy Trucks with exploding gas tanks. Never seen one or knew anyone that did. Before you spread these rumors beaware the antigunners kept these pistols off the market for a number of years. They also have banned certain types of ammo for the FNH. The Brady Bunch has spread all manner of stories about this pistol and FN. I have to wonder what some gun owners read?

I like the gun and the round,very fun to shoot,but would be expensive to own.I've been looking at the RIA 22 TCM. 1911 size and weight,nearly identical ballistics,ammo similarly priced,gun cheaper.

Pros:
Light, proven and reliable delayed blowback action
High capacity
Effective ammo design.
Accurate to longer distances than typical handguns

Cons:

Large. Hard to conceal.
Expensive gun, expensive ammo
Different point of impact for different bullet weights
The most effective bullets are LE only (steel core)
The slide mounted safety easily flips on and off when holstering or drawing the pistol. Ultimately, this is the reason I sold it.
Reloading is difficult, the brass has a special coating on it.
Thanks for your input .. again. Its always welcome.

Locutus, The .22 TCM is made from a .223 case firing a fast light 40 grs. slug. This gun is shipped with 2 barrels a 9MM and a .22 TCM. Both barrels use the same mag. The .22 TCM can be chambered in a 1911 platform. It looks pretty good. My old S&W Mdl. 53 .22 Jet can match any of these rounds and she is over 50 years old.
