Is a FN 5.7 Legal?
Likewise, people ask, is the FN 5.7 good for self defense?
Nothing I've ever read, heard or seen disputes the 5.7x28 as being a good choice as a self defense round. It's penetration qualities make it an excellent home defense round. Having said that; none of the current pistols chambered in the round are all that suited for concealed carry.
Additionally, is the FN 5.7 legal in Florida? The 5-7 is completely legal in Florida, but to get one from Blue Label requires hoop-jumping.
Subsequently, question is, is the FN 5.7 legal in Massachusetts?
The FN 5-7 is not legal for sale in MASSACHUSETTS; never mind Boston. First, it is not on the Approved Firearms Roster. Second, even if it were so approved, it could not be sold w/20-round mags. FN would have to supply 10-rounders for the Mass.
Is the FN 5.7 Powerful?
While the 5.7x28 is not particularly “powerful” kinetic energy wise, it does what it does by making use of a combination of high velocity and small-diameter, light-weight bullet. The same terminal ballistic factors that make the 5.56 NATO round highly effective, are at work with the 5.7x28, albeit on a smaller scale.
