low stopping power relative to other calibers but by no means benign

I love my Mossberg. They make more after-market accessories for the Rem. 870 but only by a few. A pistol crossbow would be nice but if I want to be quiet I'd pick up my kukri. Forget the cleaning bill. lol

With a silencer and a red-dot sight the 5.7 would be a nice quiet way to move through the house and secure it.

I thought police and soldiers just used ball ammo/FMJ.

True enough. There are always trade offs no matter what cartridge, load and firearm you pick.

On this Veterans' Day, Thank You for your service.

There are twits on this board who have never served this Republic
but they can pontificate on any and every topic including military
weapon systems.

I went to wallyworld and the library today with my American Legion cap,
must have seen 200 to 300 people, only seven nodded or said thank you.

There are too many people today who think
that Liberty and Freedom is an entitlement.

From one Veteran to another : Thank you !

Yes, I realize that, but I don’t like anyone using the term “cop killer” because it tends to legitimize the Media’s use of the term. :)

Nice jacket pocket accessory.

No hammer to snag on anything.

This accessory can used for dress and perfect for casual Fridays.

And they refuse to see this as a terrorist act?

I know a guy who was charged with making "terrorist threats" on his step-son's answering machine after he threatened the little prick who totaled his van and stole his business equipment, while trying to establish a similar business somewhere else- with his equipment!

Slightly off-topic, and I apologize, but how can anyone believe gun rights will ever be recognized as origionally intended in a country that can't even get 'terrorism' right?

Attached to the FN Five-seveN 5.7 was a LaserMax.
Among the items that found was the packaging from a laser guide attachment for a handgun. The product, called LaserMax, still had its $229.99 price tag on the packaging.

For those of us who know a thing about guns, what was the caliber?

5.7mm (.224")

You can either look at it as a lower powered reduced case 5.56mm NATO, or a centerfire analog of the .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire

I was thinking that a .40 S&W makes a much larger hole.

nearly twice as large in diameter. Infinitely larger in terms of blood loss and depth of wound channel.
