Over at thefirearmblog,com, Nathaniel F takes a shot at pistol caliber carbines. He reckons they suck (paraphrasing). Nate ain’t got time for PCC owners who see ammo compatibility with their pistol as a tactical advantage.
He reckons PCC’s are have a “substantial penalty in terms of range, accuracy, lethality, and power” over an modern sporting rifle chambered in .223/5.56.
In short (so to speak), PCC’s offer “all of the [relatively feeble] power of the pistol, and all the concealability of the rifle.”
Well that doesn’t sound very flattering, now does it? What’s your take? Are pistol caliber carbines a dead fad shooting, or are there good reasons to own one vs. an AR-style rifle? Or, for that matter, an AR pistol with an [unshouldered] SB Tactical Brace?
