Yeah, but they can reach out and touch ya at 200 yds. Through body armor. For those of you who wear body armor.

200 yard non scoped pistol shots don't worry me too much.

I can't believe you guys don't remember the gun control Sarah Brady Bunch proclaiming this newly released handgun the "Cop Killer" because of its comprising capacity to body armor.

AMMOMAN.com has 5.7 ammo;

LOL. I have to agree. They will scare the hell out of me. Anyone shooting at me at any range will scare me.
I did see a vid clip where they were firing this thing with tracers. Hitting man sized targets. I think it was less than 200yds though. Been awhile since I saw it.

Also, I don't know if this round will beat armor at 200yd.

They truly are unattractive...too bad FN didn't design them to be better looking.

I rented one just for kicks one time. I didn't like the grip, and ammo is flippin' expensive, but there was pretty much no recoil.

Not worth buying, IMO. I'd go with one of these first: http://www.kel-tec-cnc.com/pmr30.htm. A pistol loading of .22 mag, CCI makes one I believe, will give you comparable performance to the 5.7x28mm, at half the cost.
