  10. “ It was also said that the two firearms used in the war were secured , one of them being .380 caliber and the other 5.7 caliber of the so-called "police killings." ( guns issued to police ? )”

    The 5.7 is referring to the FN Five-Seven hand gun which is nicknamed cop killer because certain types of rounds used in the 5.7 can pierce body armor. So that is what the police killings is referring to with the 5.7. There are only 2 guns that use the 5.7 round. The FN Five-Seven handgun and the FN P-90 (and civilian PS-90) rifle. They are both popular with narcos.

    1. "Cop Killer" is what the 5.7 is also called in the streets. For the same reason the guy above me said.

    2. There is also AR57 rifles, made by AR57 LLC. Its an AR with a modified upper and shoots five seven rounds.

    3. Ruger makes a pistol that uses the 5.7 round.its literally called the Ruger 57
