    You 5.7 pistol owners

    I have a PS90 and I know how much the ammo costs. But considering the AR ammo comes in boxes of 20. It isn't TOO bad of a price for 50 rounds of rifle ammo.

    But for a pistol. That kills the pocketbook.

    How many rounds do U put thru your 5.7 pistols on a tripp to the range? How many rounds have U fired thru it so far?

    In 6 months, I put 1500 rounds thru 1 of my P99s. I can't imagine doing that w/ 5.7...

    I pay about $16/ box of 50. It's about twice as expensive to shoot as my .40S&W's. I usually put 100rds through it per range session. It has about 500 so far.

    To be honest.....I'd rather shoot 5.7 through the PS90 and practice with my .40's and .45's than shoot the fiveseven pistol. Its a neat gun but not my favorite.

    I typically put about 100-500 rounds of 5.7x28 down range out of my FiveseveN each trip, more when I take my ps90 along.

    Well, I only have 160 thru my PS90 over 2 trips. Will put 100 thru ot this weekend. But, I never see myself shooting more than 100, and more than likely, it will just be several trips of just 50

    U must grow cash in your back yard

    I wish I had a money tree, then I wouldn't have to work so much.

    I went into my shot to buy 2 boxes for next Sat ($19.67 a box) and they only had 3 left. They may not get any for a while, so I bought the 3rd box for the hell of it. Coming home with over $60 in ammo doesn't make my wife too thrilled

    I'll save that 3rd box for another trip.

    I do have 4 boxes I keep on hand at all times too. I won't touch that unless my shop takes months to get new ammo in.
