Yes, both 5.7 pistol, 5.7 AR, and a PS90. It is the Zombie Apocalypse Hunter's wet dream. 20 or 30 rg mags in the pistol and 50 rd mags in the rifles!!! Light weight ammo!!

Would you recommend for a target pistol versus a Glock 34?

Love my Five-seveN. A very unique pistol. Bonus: Wifey likes it, too.

Yeah, they have no recoil to speak of.

Yep quality piece and fun to shoot. I think it also makes sense in some situations as a nice HD handgun.

Yeah, I sure wouldn't want to get hit with it.

I never carried mine, but it is very lightweight for a full size pistol. That said, the safety is a bit ackward.

Yeah the safety is not in the "right" position IMO.

I did carry mine concealed a number of times in a Kramer IWB. Large of course but just silly light, even with 20 rounds on board. I sold it when I went exclusive to the 1911 platform, the only reason I did so.

I think it's light recoil and incredibly fast follow up shots are major "+s" when it comes to a HD gun. It is a very nice caliber/gun combo IMO. Even more so when you throw in the PS90.

I've shot one and the only thing that I really didn't like was the sites. Everything else was great and fun to shoot.

Both the FN Five SeveN and the PS90 are the Bomb.com. Seriously, there's lots of controversy over these guns, but for what they are, they're impressive firearms. And FN makes some of the very beet small arms on the planet IMHO.

I have shot the FN 57 a lot and while I like the gun (I like most guns) I don't believe it would make a good home defense gun. I have a farm that at one time used a lot of migrant farm workers and they have left among other things several old cars laying about and we have what we call a bone yard of junk. I wanted to preface that before stating the following. The 57 will shoot clear through two car doors with the windows rolled down. It will shoot through steal bumpers like they weren't even there and it will shatter a windshield no matter what angle you shoot at it. None of which a 45 auto or 9mm will do. All of this was done with aluminum core jacketed 27 grain bullets.

The pressures that the cartridges are loaded at and the way the action works makes the case life very short and some what dangerous if you try to get more than 2 loadings from a factory case. You cannot even begin to re-chamber a fired case as it looks nothing like it did before firing, causing the brass to "work harden" when resizing making it very brittle. The gun is well made, very noisy, fairly accurate and has very little recoil. In my opinion the only thing the gun is good for would be to defeat body armor or to have as a toy. As for a personal carry gun it would also be in my opinion very irresponsible to carry one for that purpose because the penetration is so great.
