OK...confession time...

I want a Ruger-57 in 5.7x28 in the worst way!

Anybody else excited?

Sounds like the Ruger will be much more affordable than the FN.
That cartridge has some advantages.
Flat shooting.
Almost non existent recoil.
High Capacity.
Very High Velocity (for a pistol), with the resultant great penetration.

I had a Rock Island 1911 in .22 TCM for a while. Pretty similar cartridge. I had a lot of fun with it. Big 'ole fireball when you touch one off. It was a really heavy combo though, an all steel 1911 with a little hole in the barrel, so I traded it off.
Kind of like an overgrown .22 magnum, but with a muzzle velocity of 2100 fps. instead of the .22 magnum's 1500 fps.
