Like it or not, when the chips are down and lives are at stake, an armed citizen can be the "first responder." People who donít like guns invariably rely on people who have guns when their lives are in danger.

Because you're not wearing a tin foil beanie. Therefore you are susceptible to 5.7x28 brain waves AND it's a damn good weapon.
One of those in a water boo beltslide holster and Santa would give up the whole sleigh full of presents with no questions asked.

And seriously.

The 5.7 is in service now with military and police forces in over 40 nations, including Canada, France, Spain, Greece, India, Poland, and the U.S., including the U.S. Secret Service, some Navy Seals units, and the Federal Protective Service. The internal hammer of the SAO 5.7 is NOT a striker like some claim, but is always cocked when there is a round in the chamber.

Santa brought an early gift of 2 - 50 rd boxes of SS197 5.7x28 rounds that I had been looking for to go with my SS195 rds.

That was one of the most convincing reviews for me to buy it. I even added an RMR and mount to it.

I only have SS197 rounds.

I just wonder if it's adequate for self defense.

I'd say it is as long as you hit where you're aiming. A good hit with a .22lr is better than a miss with a .500 Magnum ,just saying .
