That 5.7 is like the ultimate carry gun. I'd love one if I could find ammo in my area. The colt speaks for itself. Very nice.

Thanks...i know the ammo was hard to come by here in california but recently i have found a few shops that are starting to carry the ammo more....the gun here has also been in backorder for more than a year so when i had a chance to buy one i jumped on the deal.

My dad owns a 5.7 and we haven't been able to find ammo in over a year unfortunately. Probably one of my favorite guns to shoot by far.

Yeah if I could find it for $30 a 50 round pack that would be my new carry gun but it is no where to be found here.

The SS190 round is a great round for the P90 when fired in bursts. It's ability to penetrate light body armor while putting multiple rounds on target in a very short amount of time make it a great PDW at short range. Gelatin tests show that it's about 40% effective as a 9mm JHP round when it comes to wound channel and tissue displacement. 350 ft/lbs of energy at 15 meters.

So, unless you can get off a good amount of shots on target with the pistol I think I'd stick with a 9mm or larger for defensive carry.

I have a PS90. Can still find ammo for it, but it's getting expensive. None of the good SS190 either, mostly varmint ballistic tipped rounds.
