I still would like to know what ammo those guys have, and what are the mission requirements.

I'd imagine that the 5.7x28 fit the bill with White House security. Considering its a "protect the VIP" scenerio, over-penetration would be critical.

Light, maneuverable, accurate, high ammo capacity, high rate of fire, and the likely potential of armored targets seems like a good fit for the PS90 w/SS190.

Just my .02
