Most of their references are from the year 2000. As such, I would file this in the "bad mouthing what I can't afford to buy" catagory.

Very interesting. However, I must say that if you take the worst case scenario and say 5.7 is equal to 9mm FMJ, I'd still take my FIFTY rounds per mag over other options in CQB.

Using multiple shots per threat I can engage more threats with ONE mag than many of the equivalent 9mm firearms.

I trust the effectiveness of the 5.7 round. I certainly don't know it all, but I've heard and seen enough to know it'll stop a threat.

I bought a couple extra mags, so I can have 100 rounds ready to go when the brain-eaters arrive at my door. :D

Round count

I was watching self defense TV or some such thing the other day and one of the instructors was showing how you can often put two rounds into two targets and it often adds around .10 seconds to the split time, meaning if you take the time to hit the first guy twice you really aren't giving the second guy much more time to react. This also plays into the natural instinct to engage a threat until it is obviously eliminated.



I bet anyone good with a PS90 could put three rounds into the first target then engage a second one and have a split time similar to a person firing two rounds with a 9mm pistol. If any thing would prevent the speed needed to do this it would just be the lousy length of the trigger pull.... it's terrible for a semi auto weapon, but would be fine for it's original use in a full auto weapon.
