FiveseveN vs. M&P

i would be a little worried about over penetration in public places with the FiveseveN. its a great round that serves its purpose, i just wouldn't want to take on the liability of carring it in public. i would play it safe and go with the M&P for carry.

FN 5.7 vs. M&P 9mm

The ammunition will be alot more exspensive over the nine. The 5.7 is a sporting/ military round. Not really suited for self defense, besides there is no real personal defense hollow point made for it.

five-seven vs m&p

The 5.7 is like a .22 but whit more over penetration and that is. Plus the ammo is more exspensive. For me is wasting your money. Buy a real gun please

have you seen the ballistics of the 5.7x28mm? it is nothing like a .22
