    A subsonic .22lr has worked well for me for years, but now that I have a 12ga shotgun...
    I don’t know, look what this goose did to this poor guy.

    I bought my sister and BiL a brand-new Mossberg 500 "Persuader" for <$300 several years ago (wedding present).

    Is it as good as an AR? Of course, NO.

    Is it better than a pistol? Of course, YES.

    Would I trust it more than a $300 AR? Of course, YES.


    Conclusion: Long guns trump pistols, even if carbines trump shotguns.
    I think that is a very good assessment. In addition to economics, ban states also factor in to the options also.

    I didn't even think of that, and I live in California...

    If my ARs were strictly legal, then I'd have ten rounds, with no "toolless" reload.

    Ten rounds of 5.56 vs. nine rounds of 00? Some would still choose the 5.56, but it's not a slam dunk anymore.
