I already have an "armor piercing" gun for fun...it's a 1946 Soviet Tokarev TT-33. :) It's got a massive flamethrower of a muzzleblast that lights up the entire range and sounds like a magnum revolver, but it's a slender, 1911-size semiauto, nearly flat. Lots of fun. I've got a second as well, a Polish variant, but the range does not allow one to do the John Woo twin guns thing, with good reason. ;D

As to the FiveseveN, are they even legal in IL? I thought one of the legislators there had already called it a "Cop Killer" and was trying to ban it and the ammo for it?

Because, you know, every meth-head will go buy a $900 pistol to knock over the quickie mart for $30...

If I was gonna get that spendy, I'd go for an H&K P7. They're just too cool. Someome just showed one that they'd had done in gold titanium with burl walnut grips. It was appropriate for carrying while playing poker with Mr. Bond, I thought.

Personally, I prefer my Sig GSR... but that's me. I've got a nice little assortment of guns, but I'm getting more and more involved into the politics these days (and not nearly enough range time).

Some states and localities do ban the FN, for no really good reason. The armor piercing version of the ammo is banned on a federal level, so that automatically limits it to normal 5.7 mm rounds... which are basically extremely fast .22 cal rounds. I can't speak to which localities do ban it, that'd require a lot more research into local laws.

I have issues with HK as a company. While they produce a decent but not fantastic product, regardless of their massively over-hyped advertising campaign, their customer service is one of the worst in the gun industry when it comes to dealing with independent civilians. That's what you get when a company primarily sells only to military and law enforcement with less than 10% of their sales being in the civilian market.

I think we've stolen enough of Feren's rant for Gun Politics now... so I'll shut up.

This is true, that HK's customer service basically consists of "You suck and we hate you." ;)

And my favorite is still SIG, yes. They're also local to me.
