    This is part of why many government agencies, including the secret service have switched the 5.7x28mm.  For handguns they have started carrying the FN57, which even for being full sized is very light weight, almost no recoil, and exceptionally accurate.  Standard capacity is 20 rounds, with an option 30 extended.  It also shares a common ammo with the P90 and PS90 (rifle versions) and there are several varieties of ammo available, except to civilians.

    The 5.7x28mm round is a rifled round slightly bigger than a .22 LR, but has an offset center of mass designed to cause it to tumble after impact, which creates a bigger wound with very low risk of over penetration.

      Everyone knows that only the .45 ACP can adequately stop an intruder. All other calibers will bounce harmlessly off their chest.

      Pretty sure I read that in Guns and Ammo.

      If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
