    Its not THAT bad.



    Its pretty bad, but if I'm discharging anything indoors, the choice between hearing loss or whatever the alternative may be makes it a pretty easy choice

    I run a Foxtrot Mike PCC with 16" barrel. I bought it for 3-gun and it has been very reliable. I orginally purchased a Ruger PC Carbine but I prefer the ergos of the AR.
    I would seriously take a look at the FM products and Primary Arms is a distributor and they usually run sales of them pretty often.

    I was seriously looking at one of their pistols. Price is right and I've read many good things. And you're right, the PCC ergos aren't so hot in comparison. One reason I traded mine off.

    I have an Extar 556 I bought on a whim. I liked it so much that I sold my PLR16 which was previously my favorite 5.56 pistol. Of course this was before braces came out and made AR pistols less goofy...

    Yeah after shooting my FM in a few matches I'm selling my Ruger. It's a cool little gun but the FM is so similar in operation to the rest of my AR's I might as well stick with what I'm used to. This has become my favorite gun to shoot.

    Not the best pic....but here is my Sub 2000 with Gen 19 magwell. I bought a small pack and added extra padding at the bottom and an interior strap. I put a 3 pouch molly mag holder on the front and combined with the exterior pockets and pouches I have 8 (15 rd standard G mags) and 2 (33 rd "fun sticks") with one 40 rounder from ETS.......that is 226 rds. It could carry even more mags and has room for additional ammo. Paired with a CC G19......that is a pistol/carbine combo in a low profile pack with quite a bit of firepower.

    Need the gen 1 recoil system for reliability though.

    If you're looking to go the full 16 inches, the Beretta CX4 is worth considering. You can tactically tart them up or leave them as is. It can be converted to take PX4, 92 series, or 8000 (Cougar) series mags. The controls and ejection can be switched to the user's preference. According to Beretta, they are importing them again. They can be found on the used market sub-$600 if you find an honest seller.
    Furthermore, If you have a Glock Gen 1-3 sitting around, the Endo Tactical adapter ($35 shipped) works well with any brace that uses an AR buffer tube.

    I have 550 in credit with CAA but I don't know what to get. I want the one for M&P but the gen 2's are only out for the Glock and I don't have a Glock. So now I'm wondering if I get the gen 2 for a Glock, and buy a Glock, get the gen 1 for the M&P, or leave the credit for a year until they come out with a gen 2 for the M&P...
