I've heard good and bad, I seen video of their accuracy and was considering one myself but have no where to shoot it. I like a pistol that can hold 30rds and is basically a hand rifle.

I like mine way easier to carry in the woods when hiking, scouting, gold mining than a rifle.

Yeah it is. Most will know this as the "cop killer". Be careful what ammo you buy.

It depends. If your willing to buy bulk, it's not extremely pricey:
It can be had for as little as .40 per round.

http://www.ammonow.com/handgun_5.7x28_page_1.html

As for it's utility or stopping power, opinions vary. I can't think of anything I'd want it for. For military use, it might be a viable option. For the average Joe, I can't help thinking that there are plenty of more useful choices. In a long gun, I'd rather have a .223/5.56. In a handgun, I'm at a loss as what I would use it for that couldn't be done with a .22 mag. YMMV.
Of course if you just want one as a toy, then ignore the above,stock up on ammo and enjoy.
