    Its fast,accurate, easy to manuever and the only sound that wakes up your wife will be the sound of the perps body crashing to the floor.

    Plus, it looks cool sitting on the kitchen table. Whats not to like?

    Yup, that's what I'm talking about! Guess I'll have to win the lottery and get an "original""

    Sigh...the Selectric.

    It may date m'self, but when I got to shoot one of these with earpro, is seemed to sound just like that old electric typewriter.

    Not too shabby HotGuns, all I have to add is this one below. Even with a suppressed MP5, I still choose a 10.5" AR. Much better weapon in my opinion, and many other's opinons, for working in tight quarters. It'll rip through light armor and is very effective on bad guys with 75 grain TAP for inside work, but is also less likely to have overpenetration issues.

    I kept it ready for about 6 months without the suppressor then went back to an AR. it's fast and very accurate even on full auto, but ergonomics aren't the best, and I spent a lot of time on the system. Working the selector is a pain to the point many leave it on auto and keep their finger out of the guard when clearing, may changes are slow and awkward...with experience, and it's still a 9mm.

    Got one of them too. That thing is awfully loud without a can though and it shoots big enough fireballs to set the place on fire.

    I have an A2 fh on there now and with 77gr TAP I hardly get any blast, though it's not too quiet. I just talked to my class 3 dealer though about switching my back ordered Surefire 212 can to a Surefire Mini. I think it's a better choice for my needs, but I'm not 100% yet.

    I'll see your MP5 and 10.5" AR and raise you an 8" 6.8...!
