View Full Version : 5.7 owners in Eastern North Carolina

I live in Smithfield and I am thinking about buying a 5.7 but there is no one in this area that has one to shoot first. I went to Davi's Guns in Raleigh to rent one but they do not rent the 5.7. The guy said that the round tumbles at close range and "does not do what it is supposed to." Whatever!!! Anyway if anyone has one I would love to try it out before i spend $800. Thanks- Mike

The guy said that the round tumbles at close range and "does not do what it is supposed to."That's exactly what it is supposed to do. ;) Welcome!

I think this guy actually ment that the bullet tumbled out of the barrel before it hit the target. Not tumbleing once inside the target but before.

He's perfectly correct. In fact, thanks to the patented FN Cur-lee-Q barrel, it actually begins tumbling before it exits the weapon. Once the bullet is our of the barrel, it not only tumbles, but flies in a sine wave instead of in an arc. Upon hitting the target, it either stops without breaking skin/paper, or overpenetrates and has the potential to go through eight feet of steel reinforced, lead-lined concrete, depending on the weather, phase of the moon, and who you ask.

Trust me! I'm an expert. Really.

You cant keep the ammo in the house...you guessed it, the tumbeling inside the boxes will keep you awake (Dude, like flea circus meets olympic free style gynastics)

Buy it! It will be the best purchase you will ever make (unless you get the PS90 or the P2000 also.) Then, it will be the best three purchases you will ever make.
