    I've kind of always wanted a PS90. Like the long one with the 16" barrel. The 50-round mags and compact size are sort of appealing.

    But since I haven't been hanging around on any explosively breeding vole populations* it seems like that might not be super useful.

    *RevolverRob's Nerd Notes: Meadow and Field Voles under the right circumstances can have populations in the millions. At certain times, it is estimated that there might be 600 million (with an M) field voles in Scotland alone...Fear the Zombie Vole Hoard.
    Seriously guys, are we not doing 'phrasing' anymore?

    Some vexxed soul of a long dead general that created the original NATO PDW tender back in 1986 during the Cold War can finally rest easy and pass over the river styx now that his life's work is complete.

    Well, there's that. Proof that the good idea fairy doesn't always get immediate gratification.

    I'll start.

    5.56 x 45 is over rated.
    In the P-F basket of deplorables.

    I don't know how anyone ever kills anything with less than 6x45.

    Just because it "feels good", doesn't mean it's best.

    In days past, our soldiers strode the battlefield dealing death with a rifle that could anchor a poodle with the very vigour of a bolt from Jove. We were, of course, a hardier breed then. 5.56 mm was understood, by those in the know, as a tool for imposing one's will on an enemy. Now, in these more decadent times, we instead impose upon our troops with a mere 5.7 mm weapon. It is a choice beloved of bureaucrats but as a cartridge suitable only for killing the grubbiest of voles. We weep to see the depths our military has fallen. We can do better.

    Of course in the days of your before even Cooper, soldiers marched across the West wielding guns firing cartridges that could ground an elephant if properly placed, but bureaucrats did not fear these arms , by the simple expedient that they refused to actually supply them.

    I wonder if there will be an SOST type projectile for 5.7x28
