I agree about that Pucci not floating the proverbial boat. Talk about shows that feature the FsN sort of crossing over... Human target had a much more (IMHO) easy on the eyes female, unfortunately she was only in one episode though. She was originally from BSG: Grace Park. I'm trying to remember if she handled the FsN during the pool fight scene...

I also liked that BSG had the Beretta rifles too...what were they again? Oh, yeah. The Cx4 Storm. They put a different flash hider on it, but it still looked pretty cool. I'd never seen one before, then heard others talking about how they shot handgun ammo and used the same mags as the 92's and that made me want one.

If your quick enough you can spot a Five seveN on the bottom left row of guns when the girl opens up her closet full of guns in the new movie --Faster with Dwayne " The Rock" Johnson. I'll see if I can find a snapshot of it.. About the only good thing in the whole movie.

Found one:

Just came back from the Science Fiction Museum in Seattle where they are doing the Battlestar Galactica exhibit. Got to see that FiveseveN IOM with me own eyes. The grip was painted a gross dark brown and they didn't do a good job applying it, and the undermount thingy was weird. Also it looked like the controls were all painted grey, kinda sloppy. It says "Imported by FN somethingy something" on the slide though. Definitely neat to see I was like OOOOHHH I know this!!

Liege.
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.

I rented a couple "gun" movies last weekend and thought I would share a few cameos by our favorite weapons.

The first movie, "Faster" with The Rock, was pretty decent and had a lot of different weapons. The FsN was only shown hanging on "Killer's" armory wall. The Rock was using the cool 2.5 barreled Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan throughout the movie chambered in .454 Casull. There is an assassin called "Killer" who is uber-pretentious and totally into guns. There is a scene with him and his newlywed (in a sexy wedding dress) taking target practice shortly after their ceremony (it's cooler than it sounds). As I said, it is actually a pretty decent movie and is entertaining in it's on right.

The other movie I watched was "Gun" with 50 Cent and Val Kilmer (the guy has really let himself go - it's sad). The movie wasn't so hot (big surprise) but I was entertained due to all the gun references throughout the movie. It seems the movie definitely has the gunophile in mind. The movie is about arms dealing and 50 Cent is running around constantly talking about his .50 cal S&W and how badass it is. There is also some great scenes with the PS90 even though they call it the P90 when demonstrating it for potential customers. They have a scene where they describe its armor piercing capabilities and shoot it at armor while discussing it's low recoil. It was almost like an FN commercial. PS90 fans will like the movie just because of that part.

Hope you have fun watching them! :)

I watched that movie the other day and it was pretty entertaining in its own right. But it is some serious gun porn for FsN lovers... When one LEO states that the killer uses "something called a 5.7x28mm", the other LEO states "that is a new round and some nasty s#!t". He said, "it's designed for the military". They make it sound like it's a thermonuclear hand-cannon. lol

I can't imagine a bigger starring role for the FsN than this movie. It is black with grey controls and gets used A LOT!

Highly recommended!

Supposedly the Five-seveN will be entering the Call of Duty series in the upcoming Modern Warfare 3 (I believe the P90 has been included before, but not the Five-seveN).

IMDB has a clip of the PS90 scene:

It was always the P90, long before the civilian version, the PS90, existed. Unlesss of course the gun you're talking about in the civilian version with the ridiculously long barrel.

Sons of Anarchy season 4 opener just ended. There were a couple references to the FsN.

Early in the show an ATF agent is listing guns the IRA has provided to the Sons he mentions an FN fiftyseven.

Later at Opie's wedding, one of the Russians describes a "cop killer" that "penetrates kevlar" and hands Clay a FsN.
