Hello everyone, my name is Josh. I'm 23 years old. I've been a lurker here for a couple months, and have always been fascinated by the 5.7 round and pistol. I just purchased a Five-Seven, and love the way it shoots and feels. I also own a Beretta Px4.

I've lurked for a while, been a member for a shorter time, and this is actually my second post. I've wanted a FsN for as long as they've been produced and after dealing with a family member's major medical emergency after a surgical procedure that defied the odds of not just being successful, but that she survived, I decided that it was time to make the purchase.

Now I find that I don't have anywhere other than a state game lands range to shoot it! My local club prohibits any handgun ammunition that breaks 1200fps on the handgun ranges and the rifle ranges have target stands at 100m... I'll sort something out, even if I have to petition the board.

First world problems, eh?

Thanks for having the forum and I look forward to becoming more involved.

1200 FPS limit? That's crap, I used to have a mouse gun that'd do that. Pretty much eliminates all magnums as well. Hope you get it sorted, and welcome.

Guess I better make the introduction since it looks like I have found an interesting site to learn from.
I own
FN PS90
FN5.7 MKII
FN 45 Tactical
FNS9
FNS9 Long Slide
Bunch of others not FN (I do have a Night Hawk Custom GRP that I love the hell out of shooting so I will mention it also)
Go easy on me (or what ever). I was oilfield trash for 40 years so I can probably take some abuse.

Howdy Y'all. New guy here, and just wanted to be friendly, and to display my good manners by introducing myself.

Skyking was one of my favorite TV shows when I was a kid, and I always liked the name.

I'm retired now, and loving it.

I'm in the process of building my own AR-57 with an 80% lower. I've finally gathered all the necessary parts, and pieces, and will begin the build next week when I get up to my brother in laws shop during the Christmas holiday. I'm pretty pumped up about it.

I've been around firearms all my life, and have mostly been a clay target shooter since I started as a trap boy at the local club at 13 years of age. I'm a life member of the National, and Texas Skeet Shooters Assoc, and the National Sporting Clays Assoc. I shoot all the disciplines; but American Skeet is my favorite.

I look forward to all there is to learn on this forum, and will add my own knowledge when, and where it might be needed.

Thanks in advance,
Larry

PS: I'll update as to my build progress if anyone is interested.

Hello new guy here. First off this site has a ton of info which is great for quick go to information and I love it. I've always wanted to buy a gun but like a car there are so many choices and pros and cons of each. I picked up my Five-seveN about 3 months ago the day before I got married. Since then I have been going to the range at least once a week to practice. I've never owned a gun before so I always triple check what I'm doing in a safe way. With that said I love the Five-seveN and how comfortable it feels. I stocked up on ammo for a while and I'm working on the basics of stance, grip, breathing, etc becsuse I want to be proficient at it but I'm obviously not going to be shooting competitively just a sport/hobby. I welcome any and all advice.

Welcome to the forum.



Advice? Keep doing what you are doing. Shoot it for awhile before messing with it. Live with it and then if needed modify.

Welcome!

You're covering the basics, but I'd add setting money aside and taking a good training class with a qualified instructor so you can have a third party evaluate what you're doing and teach you much more than the basics. Even though I've been to numerous classes over the years, each one teaches me something new.
