I need my boat here by the day after Thanksgiving. I dont have time to come get it this weekend. So if anyone is heading north like Flagg, New Mexico, Colorado or even Utah somewhere closer to Durango let me know and I am willing to pay for gas. Thanks.:)hand

Just watch the snow pile on top of it until it vanishes. Seriously though I am going to watch this guy from Montana put it on a flatbed and watch it go down the road.:)hand

I looked it up:

Cost - Entirely out of whack considering the actual production costs and materials used in the pistol. Dealers often sell the gun at a very nominal markup and it still seems vastly overpriced for what it is. FN easily trumps HK in the contest to overprice their product for the civilian market. Accessories - The integration of a well designed Picatinny rail on the pistol opens up a lot of options in the long term. In the short term, there is not much available specifically for the gun. Owners must either be satisfied with general fit holsters or get them custom made. Mags - Definitely a weak point in the system. Reliable and practical, but only available from one source. Some dealers and vendors are stocking up on mags for this pistol. Prices are on the high side of reasonable. We are stocking the mags at for immediate shipment.Longevity and durability - Unknown at this time, but not promising for long term use considering the extensive use of plastics in the construction of the gun. Short term harsh environment longevity might actually be pretty good due to the lack of parts that are vulnerable to rust. Ammunition - Difficult to obtain and expensive. The situation is unlikely to improve unless more manufacturers sell guns chambered for the 5.7 cartridge. Most ammunition for this pistol has become obscenely expensive on the open market. Power - Questionable stopping power, but holds a lot of promise, especially as a midrange survival pistol. The power of the bullets fired from this pistol are roughly equal to .22 magnum fired from a long barreled rifle. The rare and costly hollow point bullets will even tumble when they hit a pop can, so there is some real potential for stopping power with this gun if the ammo supply gets sorted out right.Parts - Spare parts for the gun are practically unavailable. Ergonomics and handling - Excellent, although the safety takes some getting used to. Extreme care must be exercised when handling this pistol because the safety can be inadvertently flicked on and off, even when inserting it in a holster. Popularity - The 5-7 is not a popular gun and at current prices is not likely to ever become popular with the general public. It is likely to be well recognized due to the notoriety that some gun control groups are giving it and the guns have gained some interest with specialized law enforcement and security personnel. The price of the pistols and ammunition makes it unlikely that they will ever see common use by criminals as feared by some law enforcement and gun control groups. Maintenance and repair - The clean burning powder and largely plastic construction makes this a particularly low maintenance pistol. The lack of any cost effective availability of spare parts can be cause for concern. Very few, if any gunsmiths who work in the private sector are schooled specialists in working on this pistol. Accuracy - Seems good for man sized targets out to 50 meters, and probably 100 in the hands of a capable shooter. The gun is quite usable on small to medium game out to 50 meters.

................Sounds like a piece of $hit to be blunt :D:D:D
