FN 45 Tactical suppressed pistol

I got my hands on one of these to play with for a while.  My first impressions turned out to be my lasting impressions.

The weapon is light weight, low recoil, high capacity, and accurate.  Reliability was 100% with 5 differnt loads fired through it; 3 of which were handloads that another .45 pistol would not cycle reliably.

The suppressor is a SilencerCo 45 Osprey.  The pistol had zero malfunctions or issues of any kind while using the suppressor as well.

The clothes are Adder System CCW line by Berne Apparel.  The vest and coat are already released and selling online and in over 500 retail stores nationwide.  The pants are a sneak peak at the 2016 line of Adder pants coming in stores in just a few months.  Summer 2016.

Handgun penetration tests on cars

I did this test at a police range in Indiana.  We got a car, opened the doors, and shot through them.  On this test we used the FN 5.7×28 and the Glock 35 .40 calibers.

The first pictures here are of the 5.7 round.  The round was the American Eagle fmj.

In both cases, and multiple angles shot, the rounds deflected slightly upwards.  The impact on the second door was higher than were the round struck the first door, even firing at a downward angle.  There is approximately a two foot gap between the doors.

These are the results for the .40 cal

This is the .40 cal shot through the trunk and went through the back seat, into the dash.  All the .40  rounds used were Gold Dot HP.

This last picture is the windshield.  We fired at a target in the drivers seat, and 12 feet in front of the front bumper, all through the back window.  All rounds went through the back window and the front windshield.  The rear window did not deflect rounds enough to miss the man size target in the drivers seat.  The windshield did not deflect the rounds enough to miss the human target 12 feet in front of the bumper.
