    Yeah, I couldn't ever talk myself into one....

    Slick upper though, agreed.

    I've never shot the FN pistol, but the PS-90 was pretty fun. I think Ruger has a real shot at reviving the caliber, especially at the price point. My crystal ball is telling me prices will come down as soon as the supply catches up to the demand. I think we will see street prices in the neighborhood of $650 on average.

    I have seen a few preorder options at about $600 already with free shipping.

    An interesting analysis of Hasan's choice of firearms...

    There is a bit in here that confuses me, and I'm not able to do my own research right now; but when did steel core ammo become illegal to own?

    I've seen tons of the stuff for sale at shows and online in .223/5.56. That's your standard 62 grain green tip, correct?

    It’s complicated, but it has to do with pistol vs rifle.

    It’s not illegal to possess steel-core; AP is restricted though. Steel core ≠ AP

    The 5.7x28 SS190 AP cartridge is an AP round. That cartridge is restricted. There are several versions of the 5.7 that are perfectly legal to possess.

    Are you sure? That’s not the way I remembered it. Not saying you are wrong.
