Next gun, 9mm carbine or 5.7 semi auto?
 
I'm ready to add to the collection. I'm torn between something like a cx4 storm, and a 5.7 semi auto pistol. Any thoughts?

Are you talking about the FN Five-Seven for the pistol? 5.7 ammo is expensive, and would have to be ordered, but from what I've seen, a lot of the people who actually get the FN love it.
The 9mm would be more economical, and allow for more range time. I don't know anything about the gun itself though.

Yes, the Five-Seven. A friend has one, and its awesome to shoot. I do agree that more range time would be a plus. I already own a 9mm, so I'm pretty stocked on ammo.

Oh, and same friend owns a cx4 storm in a 40 s&w round. That is a SWEET gun!!

I own a PX4 in 40 SW. Functions flawless, trigger is OK nothing to brag about.

I have a CX4 in .45 acp. Brand new the trigger was just plain bad. It does improve dramatically with use. There are aftermarket kits out there as well.
Aside from that, it's a pretty good gun.
The FN 5.7 pistol is kind of cool in the abstract sense. I just don't know if I'd be willing to spend $1100+ for the opportunity to shoot expensive ammo that's a pain to reload.

I'm leaning more towards the carbine. For price, $700-$800, is the cx4 probably my best bet?

Imthabullet , since you were tossing up between a pistol that shoots spendy rounds and a carbine that shoots inexpensive pistol rounds, just out of curiosity why don’t you get a carbine that shoots a rifle round for around the same price as the one that shoots the pistol rounds ? I never get why people want to put up with the trade off’s of a long gun and not reap the benefits of a rifle round…..just curious.

Take a hard look at the PS90.:)

I love it. light, handy, dead accurate, and built in optics with tritium night reticle.

And a 50 round magaxine.:D

The CX4 gets my vote.
