Secret Service using funky FN carbines

Check it out.

Wouldn't they do just as well with a Ruger 10/22 in 22 magnum and a banana clip?

    Thats the FN PS-90 , it looks a little funky but they are a pretty well desgined weapon , light weight , very short , 50 round mag.

    they are chambered for the 5.7x28 , its a short little round with ballistic close to the 223

    Those "funky carbines" have been thoroughly tested over the past few years and, with regular PM, have proven to be one hell of a weapon system. The ones the USSS uses have had some factory mods, to USSS specs, and are serving well.

    I've had a little trigger time with one of those FN's... Wow!

    Full auto - virtually no muzzle rise even with what seemed to be a very high cyclic rate. Very quick on target and very easy to keep it on target - far easier than any other full-auto weapon I've used.

    Besides - it was seriously FUN to shoot! Ballistics? Well, it's a different kind of round for sure...
