Michigan Firearm FAQ: Should I Purchase An FN57 As A Defensive Firearm?

Ask The Michigan Firearms Instructor
Q: Hey Rick, I am thinking about buying that FN57 handgun. What do you think?

A: I have indeed shot the FN57 handgun on numerous occasions and I feel that it is a fine firearm. However, I would explore other options for a primary defensive pistol.

In no particular order, I would select one of the following firearms chambered at 9mm or above for my primary defensive handgun: S&W M&P, Glock, and Springfield. If you already own one of the aforementioned handguns and want a backup defensive gun for fun, then buy the FN57.

You are strongly encouraged to not only conduct your own independent research but to also consult with a competent and qualified attorney before acting upon any information in this article. Laws covering self-defense, lethal force, firearms, and the Michigan Concealed Pistol License and their enforcement are always subject to change due to laws being amended, politics conducted in the Prosecutor's Office, and election results at all levels of government. Ignorance of the law, legally speaking, is not a valid excuse for running afoul of it. The penalties and fines imposed upon violators of firearms related offenses are stiff and severe.
