Not surprisingly…

The FN 5.7 is now in the crosshairs of The Brady Bunch right after WNBC-TV4 in Noo Yawk City did a "kop killer pistol" piece on it earlier this week, and found some pants-wetting Noo Joisey "Police Chief" named Troy who wants it banned because of its AP capabilities!

ALSO.......No more SS192 ammo will be made for civilian sales as it does penetrate L2 soft body armor...it with be replaced with the so called SS196 loaded with the 40gr Hornady V-Max bullet that will not penetrate L2 armor (this comes from the ATF website) so if you have a 57..stock up on the SS192 as its the last you will get, and once its gone..its gone and you are stuck with SS196.
Really? Exactly where on the "ATF website?!?"

Here's the "ATF website" - http://www.atf.gov/. Please show us!

Sam Kersh posted a link to the ATF ruling on the SS196 ammo -- there is no mention of the SS192
Well, two things are immediately apparent here…
  1. The "Site Search" feature on the BATFE site bites the big weiner![/*:37ckicqt]
  2. Michael, you can't read worth diddley.[/*:37ckicqt]

According to FNH USA, FN Herstal tested the SS192 ammunition. SS192 ammunition did not penetrate the Level IIIA vests that were tested. FNH USA states that SS196, Hornady V-Max 40 gr. bullets fired from a 4-3/4 inch barrel did not penetrate the Level II vests that were used in testing.

FNH USA has informed FTB that SS192 is no longer imported for commercial sale to the United States
P99Guy… you're off the hook for now. If you're gonna name a cite, then always post the site's URL.
