    George Zimmerman

    WTF?

    A gun-shop owner said Zimmerman came in weeks after the Feb. 26 shooting and said "his life was in danger and he needs more guns."

    He got at least one more: The day of his arrest April 11, FDLE agents found in his rental car a "cop killer"[sic] handgun, a Belgian-made semiautomatic pistol, capable of firing bullets at such high velocity that they can pierce body armor. He also had three magazines of ammunition.

    I'm assuming they are talking about the FN Five-Seven, a fine firearm owned by several members of this forum.

    The FN Five-Seven has NEVER been used by a criminal to kill a LEO in the USA. Ever. And the ammo sold for this gun on the civilian market has been proven by the BATFE to NOT be capable of compromising Level IIA body armor (which is what most cops wear).

    The Brady campaign lies, lies, lies. And the media just lap it up, like a dog eating puke.

    Whatever happened to "fact checkers" in the media?

    Yep. Once they committed to nailing Zimmerman, however, they can't back down. Wouldn't "save face."

    Since when did we stop acting like Americans, anyway? An American has no problem saying, "My bad" and moving on with life.

    I would assume the FN as well. Fabrique Nationale Herstal (FN) out of Belgium produces the FN 5.7. Which I can personally attest comes from the factory with three magazines. Apparently George Z is like me and keeps them all loaded. And the weapon is capable of propelling a projectile so fast that it will penetrate body armor.....if it's an armor piercing round which is not available for civillian sale in this country. The cartridge is a rifle cartridge (for the PS90 SBR) called the 5.7x28, hence the name of the pistol, however it is a caliber .224 projectile (same as an AR15) with a shorter, narrower case and lighter bullet than the AR15.

    The ammo that is available is the FN sporting round which is a polymer tipped Hornady (V-Max) hollow point that leaves the 4.5 inch barrel at 1750 FPS (per factory) and drops something in the neighborhood of 3.5 to 5 inches at 100 yards. Also available through a specialty ammunition manufacturer are other rounds which are much more effective for self defense that the sporting rounds and a "lead free" round produced on contract for FN.

    It's a sweet weapon with 20+1 capacity, nearly zero felt recoil, and due to firing a rifle cartrige has a large muzzle flash and report. It's also super light, even when fully loaded and the safety is located at your extended trigger finger, above the trigger....right where your finger should be when clearing the holster.

    As for "cop killer".....Hassan tried in Fort Hood but I'm not aware of any. At a grand, it's not something a hood is going to have unless it's hot and there just aren't that many in civillian hands yet.
