IMO, leave the 9mm for handguns.

9mm carbines are for fun at the range.
Don't get me wrong; can they be used as a home defense tool?.... sure they can, but you can't deny that there are much better options there for home defense.

You may find that you will sleep like a baby with a 12 ga Winchester 1300 Defender fully loaded with either Shot n ball or Buck n ball sleeping next to you. Just saying.

If I can use the pistol next to my bed and fight my way over 18" to the safe, this is in there too.

along with much more. Then fight my way into the closet 20' away, much more available there too. I do like things that share ammo and magazines though, as well as military calibers now (9mm, 45acp, 5.56, 7.62x51 and 7.62x39). I like my AR9 as it only has a 5" barrel and is suppressed. Most of mine are. Firing the AR9 indoors isn't too bad. Firing the AR15 pistol indoors even with plugs and muffs isn't so pleasant. I can't even imagine what that would be like in a small enclosed area. I have one of these boxes with 5 AR15 mags, 5 AK47 mags, 5 Glock 21 mags and 5 Glock 19 mags in every closet in the house along with a box of buckshot with each one, just in case something happens.

Could you elaborate why you like the gen one more? Looks like I might be stuck with the gen one since they don't have a gen 2 for the M&P. Probably going to order one today, so looking forward to your reply.

Questions:

1. Do you have any issue with pulling the spare mag out?

2. Some people have reported the charging handle adaptor skipping a tooth and slipping back. Have you had this issue?

3. Do you have the light or laser that goes under the barrel, and if so, what are your thoughts on em?

4. I've heard the gen one brace bends too easy. Do you have that issue with it bending when you shoulder it?

Thanks man.
Mine doesn't have the extra mag holder. It's just the basic angle grip. I don't like having extra dangley bits, which is one of the reasons I prefer the gen1. The gen2 is also just a hair bulkier. I don't know if they needed to add more material because of issues or to support the extra stuff I don't want anyway.

I haven't had the charging handle slip. I'm not even sure how that's possible. It's pretty well captured by the chassis.

I just ordered the light; I'll let you know what I think when I get it.

I haven't really thought about the bendiness of the brace. I think it might actually be a little stiffer than the Sig brace I have on an AR pistol.
...and how dare you imply I "misuse" the product ;)

Maybe you do, but I’d take the PCC over a shotgun pretty much every time for a home defense role. And I like that Winchester you mentioned a lot.

I just ordered two MCK kits for the M&P. One of them will come with a green laser, since when the M&P goes in the kit, the surefire on it can go on the top rail. Also got the thumb rests for both. I have two M&Ps so it's gonna be cool shooting with the 9 year old. One in black and the other in FDE. I think I'm going to spray glue multicam material on the FDE, in strategic places to make it FDE and MC. For one, I got the green laser and aluminum top rail, so I have to do the same for the second one when I can. Excited.
