I see no use for one. The 5.7 is, to my knowledge, basically a souped up .22 Magnum.

Really small bullet coming really fast BUT still not fast enough to get the terminal effect you achieve with a 5.56 MM out of a carbine.

IMHO it's a solution in search of a problem. Designed for military support troops to give them a sidearm capable of defeating enemy body armor. Our military did not think it was worth adopting and as Civilians, I don't think we can legally buy the military penetrating ammo it was designed for. I would not trust this round for SD, don't like the 1k price tag, and believe only 1 ammo company currently loads for it. No other gun makers have adopted this chambering so ammo is going to stay expensive and probably be dropped from production in the future.

Personally, I'd pass unless your trading for a gun worth half as much and plan to flip the FN

I think this pistol has a purpose in the civilian market and it not a good one. Any pistol that can hold 30 rounds and be tucked in the pants is scary to me. Next from what I understand, it is very accurate with very little round drop at 50-100 yards but its not for me.

You can find it online for about that much too,but the only times I've seen them at a LGS they were about a buck per round. I'm sure some areas are cheaper

I can't buy ammo at basspro anymore,the one here is getting ridiculous with their ammo prices. Cheapest box of 9mm was $21. Steel cased Russian 7.62x39 was $8-9. Just bought enough 7.62x39 to fill every mag I got for $4.90 a box at wallyworld. Their 9mm was $10 and some change
