    Was thinking about Buying a FNH ps90 but is it tough. What i mean is can it handle some sand. Can it function in water and mud or will it not fire if that happens.

    I just bought a PS90 yesterday. I haven't shot it yet. But I'm a person who researches everything. & the research I've done all points to yes it is tough. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/FN_P90

    I've had one for about a year.
    It's never let me down.

    I wasn't sure if I wanted one, and so I went down to the range and rented it. Fun as all get out to shoot. What stopped me from wanting one was the magazines. They are a royal pain in the butt to load.

    I'll give you that. A fifty round mag is a VERY nice feature. My issues would be user and efficiency related. Sucker shoots accurate, once you realize that there is significant difference in ranges on it.
    The magazine location is both great and horrible. (I hope I explain this right). You have no magazine hanging down in front. This is a good thing, if that is always your pet peeve.
    The drawback to that, you pretty much have to come off target to reload, because you don't slide a magazine in the front, and it's pretty hard to do it one handed.
    But, the bullets are designed to cancel over-penetration. I think it's like eight inches after impact it 'flips' and loses power, which is a good feature.
    For what it's designed for? It would either be the P90 of the FS2000 as my choice. Smaller than a typical rifle, more powerful than a pistol round, and very quick swings and acquisition.
