New Secret Service handgun?


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


My buddy was telling that there is some new super-duper handgun and necked-down high-velocity cartridge that the Secret Service is supposedly adopting. Remarkably, he can't remember any of the details. Does anyone have any idea of what he's referring to?

Could be the newer FN, but I've not seen or heard about any agencies using them...but then I wasn't looking or listening either.

Actually it's long range planning for when Hillary gets into office. All the Secret Service people will turn in their firearms and carry slingshots in stead.

They all seem to be hot on the FN 5/7

http://world.guns.ru/handguns/hg18-e.htm

"The Five-seveN is advertised as being capable to penetrate standart PAGST vest at 300 meters and standart CRISAT (kevlar + titanium) vest at 100 meters. The Five-seveN is available from FN for government or law enforcement sales only. "

The last statement is dumb. They are for sale here in Arizona, you just cant get the good ammo (ahem)

It's not the gun that is restricted, it is the armor defeating ammo. The gun is readily available. My dealer has one, I shot it. He's also a cop, and can get the ammo for his use.
The civie ammo is like shootin a 22 mag.
Ammo looks like a shrunken 223 shell. He also told me that Secret Svc is carrying these.

HK is making the UCP and MP7
and the other company is makink the 5/7 and P70.
All these guns have a very low stoping power compare to 9mm or 45s, but they can damage the kevlar.

Secret Service has been using .357 SIGs for a little while now. That is a necked cartridge.
