And don't forget to teach them the 1st rule of gun safety... or is it the 2nd rule? :confused:

It's gotta get pretty hot in those black pyjamas. The gentleman on the right side of the photo looks like he fell in a pool!

1) I'm sure there must be a worse gun than a P90 to use against a half-naked crank addict, but I can't think of one.
2) Rule 3, duh.
3) Rule 2, duh (I guess he doesn't like how the perp's knee is attached).

...and finally...

4) I'm sure to catch hell for this post next time I'm at the range. :)

Only the police and military are qualified to have guns.

This comes from a department where the chief of police went on camera and announced that while Murders were up this year (13 this month alone) Crime overall is down 3% from last year! :what:

I feel soooo safe!

Funny enough, the 5.7 name is just used to differentiate the cartridge. It actually uses standard .223/5.56 bullets. This issue came up before when people were worried about the clearance inside a 5.56 Flash Hider and they checked on the bullet diameter, much to everyone's surprise.

Here(shamelessly stolen from the web):
The .223-inch diameter SS192 bullet is non-magnetic and features a copper jacket with what appears to be an aluminum core. The SS192 bullet has a 0.300-inch deep hollow nose with an opening of approximately 0.030-inch. The ammunition used in this test was Boxer-primed (small 0.175-inch rifle) with a three-stab crimp and black sealant, and the case head was stamped 5.7x28 and FNB 04.

So basicly we have a baby 221 Fireball. Nothing wrong with that. :cool:

Isn't that what the FN FiveSeven uses?

Yah, the FN-57 is the companion pistol to the P90 submachinegun. I find myself seriously wondering if this guy just bought it because it sounded cool, what with all the hype and such.

I mean, he obviously didn't get it because of his excellent judgement.

Clearly only certain people are professional enough to handle such a weapon.
