    It's odd that the review praises the accuracy of the pistol without publishing any numbers.

    Or did I miss them?

    I thought the same, but I dont read enough reviews to know if this fella usually does that.

    With the title of the thread, I thought these may have been French, or Vietnamese pistols... You know.. Never fired and only dropped once..

    Have a FN five-SeveN. It has always been reliable, but you can never just tear a ragged hole in a target. Perhaps Ruger learned something from the other iterations.

    I'm on the list at Sportsman's Warehouse. $650. I have loyalty point cash & gift cards for almost $200. A 57 for under $500. Sounds pretty good to me.

    I about fell out of my chair when I saw that Ruger was dropping a 5.7. I've been on the fence for years about whether or not to acquire a FN FiveseveN. Never could pull the trigger on it (pun intended). This new Ruger checks all the boxes and makes some improvements. My only issue is whether or not to wait for the threaded version that is sure to come in the future. It'd be nice if Ruger came out with some extendo 30rd mags. This pistol will be a welcome companion to my PS90. Haters/Poors gonna hate on the 5.7 because that's what they do. I enjoy it. It's a range toy that doubles as a soft armor hole puncher (with the right loads). The fact that Ruger is hedging it's bets on the new pistol and that major ammo manufacturers are throwing their hat into the 5.7 ring is a good sign that the 5.7 will hopefully enjoy a new lease on life instead of languishing in boutique ammo limbo.

    Rumor has it that there's going to be a 5.7x28 defense round from Speer Gold Dot

    True. I know 22Plinkster and at least one other Youtuber received some Gold Dot test ammo. It was 40gr HP.
