I have been reading the posts on this forum with high interest. It sounds as if the Five-seveN is a very interesting pistol.

I have a Springfield M1911 for home defense. I also have a .22LR pistol. The idea of having the recoil of a .22 in a defense firearm is quite appealing. The idea of being able to stop intruders with less risk of injuring bystanders or shooting through multiple walls is great. 20 round mags would be such a luxury as well as a real tactical advantage.

The price of regular ammo for the Five-Seven is worse than buying Golden Saber .45 ACP +P, so I will probably wait until the ammo supply evens out and prices return to reasonable levels for good ammo. However, this wait will not stop me from getting as much info and comment as possible from experienced users of the Five-seveN. Having said this, if the Five-seveN proves to be the perfect home defense firearm the cost of ammo will not be a factor... I just will not be able to practice as much as I should.

Welcome to the forum! Lots of members here will be glad to help. The ammo cost should come down significantly, Fiocchi will be loading 5.7x28mm starting around August-September.

I am glad to hear that Fiocchi will be offering 5.7X28mm. They make some nice .22LR. Now if we can only get some hot loads... 2,000 fps.
