Neat little pistol, but ammo is hard to come by and expensive. The ballistics out of the pistol on the 5.7 round aren't much better than a 22Mag. Accuracy is OK, but not exactly a tack driver. Plus, if your location tag is accurate, you'll be limited to 10 round mags. The FiveseveN's claim to fame is the 20 round mag.
If you just want a hobby handgun, it is hard to beat the Ruger Mark III series (Standard or 22/45 models.) Cheap to shoot, usually very accurate and inexpensive.
