Practically Shooting

Shot an FN Five-seveN

The guy shooting next to me had one. I admired it, which usually results in someone handing their pistol to me "try it!". (nice folks at my local outdoor range) I only shot one magazine's worth so this is only an initial impression.

It really is a different pistol than what you'd expect. It weighs nothing and it almost entirely plastic so it feels like an airsoft gun. The recoil is similar to a .22WMR but packs much more punch. The ergonomics were good but the texture on the grip is really sharp.

According to the owner ammo is not as expensive as you'd think, about $23/50, which is what you'd pay for premium handgun ammo. Not a cheap plinker though.
