I don't remember the forum but there seems to be some serious issues with the gun. In fact one guy was selling his and it was a few days old. Just wanted it gone. You can only get the ammo from FN unless that changed.
Do yourself a favor and do a Google search. I was going to buy one until I saw the crap reviews.
Just get a .45ACP and be done. Big, slow, high torque round.
The 1911 is a heavy gun but I have shot and owned many, it is my favorite. My second choice is Glock. Someone here said there are ranges that let you rent guns, we don't have anything like that but that is a great idea before making a purchase.
i have one that i bought from a friends estate along with a couple of other guns.
we had run about 300 rounds through his at the range without problems.
they make different ammo for it but it all comes in a FN box.
their defense rounds are a hollow point fragment able bullet. it will penetrate soft tissue but will disintegrate when it contacts a solid object such as a wall.
that being said. the only advantage to this weapon is mag capacity. IMO it is a cool toy but given a shtf situation it would not be my "go to" gun.
I bought one when they came out. SS190 was cheap and readily available then. After blasting about 600 rounds through all kinds of shit, the prestige wore off and I got rid of it. I wish I would have bought that 20k rounds of SS190 for a dollar a bullet back when I had the chance. I did buy 1k for 1k and sold it for 5k. Without the SS190, it's nothing special IMO.
