Soon Not to Be Seen at a Newsstand Near You

Recoil magazine. Which is supposed to be Yet Another New "Tactical" gun magazine, but one that apparently buys into gun control claptrap. That seems to be a level of stupidity bordering on the suicidal, for there would not seem to be a large market of gun enthusiasts who are OK with gun control. Their Facebook page is shedding "likes" at a pretty impressive pace as word spreads around.

I've read about the FN 5.7mm cartridge before and everything I've read about it leaves me severely underwhelmed. LawDog is right, the round is basically a centerfire version of the 22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire. There is a reason why the pistol has a 20 round magazine: Because you're probably going to have to shoot a bad guy about six times or more.

You'd be better off buying a .22 WMR. For one thing , the ammo is cheaper ($9/50 as opposed to over twice that for 5.7x28 mm). Second, you're not going to have to deal with the paintball fanboys who have been falling in love with the cartridge. Third, the word seems to be that the cartridge is unforgiving when it comes to reloading. I don't know anything about that, but it might pay to be cautious in going about it.

Sort of like that new skin mag, "Angrily Disapproving Nuns"? The one that features racy, hot woolen habits and shame?
