    What do you think of it? Is it a fun gun?
    Is it accurate?

    Is it worth the price?

    I own the FN Five-seveN IOM/Tactical (SAO).

    It's a very fun gun. It's amazingly tame and has always worked flawlessly for me. I especially like the safety, which is located above the trigger and is operated with the index finger. Accuracy has been good for me; I can't outshoot it yet.

    I got mine for $400 after a trade, so it was definately worth the price. If I had the money lying around, I'd probably buy it at it's current price.

    Ammunition is expensive. I pay $18.99 for 50 rounds, and with 20 round mags, that can go pretty fast.

    In my opinion it's worth it. The debate rages on about its usefulness as a defensive weapon and likely will for some time. Given the performance I've seen in my own homemade tests however, I wouldn't be disappointed with it at my side.

    And it definately gets looks at the range. :cool:
