I just picked up a gently used FN 5.7 for the price of a used Hi Standard 1911, 100 rounds of federal 45 acp, 4 not so good magazines, a leather holster, and $750.00 cash. The total cash value for the items was about $400 and his asking price was $1200 cash for the pistol, (2) 20 rd mags and (2) 30 rd mags. I basically got rid of things I didnt want. I havnt shot it due to my limited ammo supply plus the cost of the rounds for those that have them are charging a $1.00 a round. No where around me has them but I did find a store a hour away that has them at the best price ive seen of $29.99 a box of 50.
Another downside for me is my local range has this pistol on its No No list so I have no place to regularly shoot this pistol. I like it because I usually carry a 1911 with 10rd mag (im big enough to get away with it) and it is pretty heavy but I can carry this with a 30rd mag and it weighs less than my 1911 empty.
I know alot of people fall into the size matters category of calibers but I believe shot placement is more important and I like the idea of having 30 shots to place at my disposal.
Well this is where im at, what do you guys think?
Im also a Fredericksburg Virginia local.
