That looks like the groups I got from my 5-7. I expected a lot more from it. I put a couple hundred rounds through it, and when the groups never tightened up I traded it for something else.... that cooincidentally dosen't shoot very well either.

Next time I'll go to the longer range and try 50 yards and 100. Heck, no doubt I'll take a shot at the 200 yard gong.

Keep in mind I've taken 40 shots with it - hopefully I'll improve some once I get used to a good trigger.

IIRC, isn't the general police spec a 4.5" group at 25 yards? I think it is. Anyway, practice as I get more ammo will be in order.

Guess I missed that..I think No. 4 for the drones if they are close enough for a shotgun, otherwise, perhaps a Sergant York?

My brother had a Colt nickel plated .38 with wood grips that belonged to our dad. Some crack head broke in his house and stole it.

I finally shot it yesterday and I really like it. Shoots differently than my XD in 40 but after a few more rounds (after I can find more) I will get used to the trigger, it's smooth just different but as you said recoil is not bad at all.

Sorry for crappy iphone pic

Here's a pic of my XD in 40

everyone knows a revolver is all but worthless unless it's new and black. if you happen to run into anyone unaware of this...please tell them.
Don't forget the Colts and Smith&Wessons are the most worthles.

Hard to tell, but is that a sub-compact? 3" barrel? I've seen those in 9, they are quite nice - I have a compact, 4" barrel - don't know where that designator came from, freaking huge it is.

I shot another 70 rounds last weekend and I'm liking it more as I get used to it. It's sure easy to breakdown and clean, no more pulling of pins and separate spring packs.



I got my spare mags for the PX4 and today the FNS-40. I guess I need to order a couple for the Five seveN.

It's the compact w/4", sorry pic is awful. I want to shoot more but I don't want to shoot all my 9mm ammo. Been looking online for some but refuse to pay rip off prices.

Yea, 9mm has been MIA around here for several months now. I'm hoping to find a couple hundred rounds tomorrow. Hope you like it. Mine has grown on me.

That looks like fun! They should put a paint ball gun on the plane to give the pilot a fair chance
