DefenseReview will be publishing its SHOT Show 2005 pics in the days to come. However, in the meantime, before we get ours uploaded, "platform389" has posted some terrific digital pics of cool items he found at the show on the forums, and "LARRYG36" and "Schuey2001" have done likewise at the forums. DefRev will try to get its SHOT Show 2005 digital photos up on its server, soon.

Perhaps the most significant photos shown are those of the semi-auto-only civilian-legal prototypes of the FN P90 PDW (16" barrel) and FN F2000 infantry rifle. DefenseReview got to handle these prototypes at the FNH USA (FN Herstal USA) booth, and we liked what we saw and felt. We would, however, like to see a full M1913 forend rail system with rails at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock, so one can attach tactical white lights, targeting lasers, vertical foregrips, etc. Let’s see how these new civvie-legal versions run at the range. That will be the proof in the pudding. By the way, FNH USA kept these out of sight in their meeting room, so they were not on display at the booth. However, a few lucky attendees got to pose with them. A quick note: According to Rick DeMilt, FNH USA’s Director of Law Enforcement Sales and Marketing, the production-version civilian-legal FN P90 PDW will sport an O.D. green stock. On the civvie-legal FN F2000, not the Mil-Std 1913 top rail (M1913 rail).

Below are the links to the relevant threads that include quality digital pics of the prototype (and civilian-legal) FN Herstal weapons:…

Author’s Note: When you visit the forums thread, the prototype civilian-legal FN P90 PDW (Personal Defense Weapon) and FN F2000 digital pics are close to the top, so will have to scroll very little to see them. In the forums thread, you’ll have to scroll more, as they’re further down. There are more great pics of additional tactical-application firearms in both threads, as well.
