i have some old black tip ammo and some subsonic and i was bored so i decided to cut open one of the black tip rounds






n i dunno if the E-police are gonna get me but i shot an intercepter vest at 35 yards with a fiveseven and the penetrator went through

so for once a company did tell the truth about their bullets AP stuff
congrats FN

oh i know any rifle round can pierce a vest at 500 yards too, and kevlar helmets are about as good as paper

but the fiveseven fits in your cargo pocket



oh i dunno bro the e-police/keyboard rangers are vigilant

well fn does not allow the sales of ss190 ss191 ss193 to the general public, not because it is illegal, but to avoid any type of banning of their products due to misuse. Example lets say the ss190 round was able to be purchased in any store, and some criminal used it in a fiveseven pistol injuring or killing private citizens or public servants. The press would make FN out to be some type evil corp., and would cause all kinds of problems. The smart choice is to restrict the sales of it, because it is in their best interest.

It's always so funny how the press and other ignorant people will make a big deal out of the five seven and the PS90 when any WWI era rifle will shoot through both sides of any soft vest and both sides of any combat helmet ever issued.

How is it that people come to live in such fantasy worlds?

Called appeasement to the BCTPGV so that FnHs profits do not suffer.

In my book, its called BS. Anyone can gets their hands on all four of the types of ammnunition that FnH restricts.

I emailed FnH and told them that their restrictions were doing nothing, especially in light of BTown (now gone fromt that other forum), a retired LEO, who purchased a case of SS198 and offered most of it for sale on Gunbroker at 'lets make the retired LEO a rich man prices'. I wonder how his fellow LEO's feel about this?

FnH refused to reply - so you see, its all politics.

Meanwhile, FnH consideres my life less worthy of a LEO's life by not allowing me the same access to ammunition that they have.

That puts FnH in the catagory of 'evil corp' in my book.

i can guess that FN doesnt want their product I.E. the fiveseven and the ss 190 round on the 10 pm news after some criminal uses it and possibly kills or injures police officers. The moronic news media would make FN out to be terrorist company selling in their eyes unstoppable (cops killing ammo).
