If I need a rifle round it will be in a rifle. I like the FNH handguns, but this one while fun is an exception. An odd/expensive round to find for use. I don't know if there would be a time where I need a AR 5.56 to be more pistol or a 9mm to 45 to be more like a rifle in real life. I have shot this pistol it was fun but don't get the advantage of the round or pistol. When it comes to FNH I will stick with my FNP.
