What a waste of $80 that was...

I spent $80 on (2) 50rd magazines....

Its a neat little pea shooter, but I don't see it doing anything a 11.5" AR-15 won't do...

I got to try it with the hot-rod LE-only ammo, and with the civvie stuff.

THe ergos are cool, and it felt fairly robust...but I wouldn't buy one myself.

I'd like to see a 11.5" AR-15 pistol/SBR in 762x25, or just keep 5.56.

Yah it was full auto, thats the only way a P90 comes (this was the real deal, not the neutered PS90)

I rented it at American Shooters on Arville.

Gotta remember this was designed as upgrade to a 9MM round........not 5.56.

I bet you still had a smile on your face for a few minutes............:D

Upgrade for use against armored troops.

Whilst breaking in the M4 upper I bought from you Sat I watched a guy shoot a FA Steyr AUG and I had a big smile on my face even though I wasn't pulling the trigger. :D

It was pretty noisy in an indoor range! :eek:

Damn, for a minute I was wondering what all the excitement was shooting a Ruger P90 in 45ACP.

Nice guns, but gee.... ;)

a 5.7 AR is coming. Of course it's been coming for a LONG time, but it is coming. I've always thought the 5.7 was a weird round, and the main reason I passed up on it whenever I see it (even though I REALLY want one). I mean, the FiveseveN is a pretty kick *** concept and I like it, but in a weapon that you shoulder it just seems like there are better alternatives.

My friend at the range had a box, I got to shoot (3) rounds of it.... The gun kicks appreciably more with the hotrod stuff.


Yah shooting it was fun, but I've run so many 1000s of rounds off thru full autos that its not super fun to me...I was actually bummed that I found out AFTER I blew the $$$ that I coulda shot my own rifle that I brought along, and saved the $80...so the next day I went back with my brother in law, his AR15 and $12.00 and we shot for about 1.5hr.

American Shooters is the only place in LV that will let you shoot with any ammo you want, as long as its not steel core. No Frangible required like everywhere else.



JP

P.S. I'd rather shoot an M4 or a Krink for the $$$...The P90 was so smooth and controllable it was just kinda...boring. LOL

Yah I watched some cat shoot an MP5K w/a suppressor on it (gemtech I think?) and it was fun enough just watching. Like I said, Ive shot them so much I dont get bummed watching other people... it was neat...PFFFFT PFFFFFT PFFFFFT, all you hear is the shell casings hitting the floor...

Are suppressors totally illegal in PRK?

Essentially...yes.

If you can secure an SOT/07 FFL you could possess them, but good luck getting the permits from DOJ.

The FEDS dont have a problem with them here, if you can get the DOJ to sign off on it.

Yeah, I was gonna say, that stuff it worth at least $80 a box by itself on the black market. It's all kinds of illegal of course. (unless you are LE or military).

How about something like this, just get 10 round mags (which are available) . . . ;)

I'd rather see a mag lock system, or a stock + flash hider replacement, for the PS90.

A friend of mine heard there's 3 guys in Norcal who have PS90s... and that's just norcal. No telling how many are in the state overall.

Supposedly, there's a guy who's coming out with a CA legal stock overlay (nullifies the forward pg + thumbhole) and flash hider... $250 I think for the kit.
