I have a PS90 and love it. It comes with a tritium optical sight.

Ammo is readily available online,. usually around $22-$24 per box. But that's a box of 50, not 20, so it's less expensive to shoot than most center fire rifles.

The shorter SMG version, the P90 is widely used by LE all over the world.

I think she made a wise choice.

I've tried finding the p90 for sale and can't find jack... One site said you can't buy unless law enforcement or military

Bingo!

I've shot both and while neither is for me..."hate squishy bulpup triggers", the FS 2000 is IMHO the better bullpup. Yes, it's trigger is typical bullpup squish but it does "stage" consistently so it can be fired quickly and accurately but the biggest benefit is that you get the much better 5.55 MM round and magazine interchangability with any AR's you may already own.

I would try hard to let her handle and shoot a bulpup before buying her one...they are "freaky odd" ergonomics for anyone use too a traditional rifle.

Ah ha!!!

That's why I can't see it...someone earlier had suggested trying that instead...I was searching for Semi-Auto

I live in Illinois

No P90 for me

I voted for the colt in the poll you posted because ammo is ridiculously over priced for the PS90, that being said though it is a great rifle and should be considered. It is light, has very little recoil, and is really easy to shoot, I don't own one but have put several hundred rounds down range with a coworkers. If ammo wasn't so pricey I would own one.
