Take that big arse light off the front it should conceal pretty good. Hell, I walk with my SW .357 K frame 4" wearing shorts all the time with a loose button up shirt covering it. I get a few looks but not a lot!

For a few various reasons I'm not impressed with FN Five-seven as a carry weapon.

I'm also not impressed with some of this failures I've read about... for example:

At first I thought it was another case of an idiot hurting himself with hand loads, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

(EDIT: Apparently it was another idiot hurting himself)

Was gonna trade my Glock 19 and S&W 66 for a five seven, but decide the 9mm Glock was better everyday carry, so I sold the SW and got a lazermax for the 19. I love that gun now! On top of the LM, I have the Tru-Glow sites!


SWEEEET!

What follows is normally a pretty tired argument, but I can't even imagine the fun a prosecutor would have with your 5.7 carry weapon.

Especially considering FN's marketing at the time it was released.

I fired one at a shooters show at Bills a while back along with a P90 and they are both very cool. I'm just not sure what the FN 5.7 was designed for.

I carry mine from time to time. There are a number of LEO's who also carry it.

It was designed to fit somewhere in between the 9mm and the .223.
