Mas,

I did a search and read a couple of your previous replies to the 5.7 x 28 do you know of any shootings since then and your opinion of it

I've read a couple articles that this round has been very effective with the drug cartels in Mexico and to horrific effect by the fort hood shooter hasan

Second question if used in a SD shooting could the same thing happen to the gentlemen that used the overpowerful 10mm

Thanks

Field results remain limited and mixed, I for one remain cautious.

As you review the Fort Hood atrocities, note how many people took center mass hits and were able to stay up and running, escape, and survive. Sadly, they had nothing to shoot back with. Had situation been reversed, well, use your imagination.

Media DID make big deal out of the mass-murderer's high-tech gun, I would expect opposing counsel to do the same with good guy shooting bad guy with same if they wanted to demonize him.

I've found the 5.7 fun to shoot. I'm not ready to use it for carry yet. YMMV.

best,
Mas
