5.7 x 28mm usage

I'm a little new to this caliber and looking to learn from those who have actully fired it. I know many LEO around the world are using this, which should be testimate enough, but how does 5.7 stack up as a defensive caliber? Where does it rank among the more common calibers? School me.

One of the most accurate with lack of recoil rounds you'll ever fire! Love my PS90 and Five-seveN. You may want to check out a couple of the FN or Five-seveN forums for more info.

Seems like it fills the roll where the 9x19mm isn't quite enough but the 5.56x45mm is a bit too much. I'd love to have a PS90 and Five-seveN set, think that'd be the peak of the "cool" factor for modern guns.

I don't think that many law enforcement agencies are using it, but it's pretty cool. Good for someone who needs a little more point-blank range than your typical pistol caliber but doesn't want the size, weight, or blast of a full-on .223.
Looks to me like only 5 out of 9 on the supreme court can read.
