The M-1 Carbine as a Home Defense weapon.
I just got my 'new' CMP service grade carbine. I actually have 3 others. I was reminded how on 9/11 it was a carbine I picked up and put in my truck as I joined two fellow Vets in assisting theo local Sheriff's dept in checking out bridges along I-10. I had 4 30 round mags loaded with soft point ammo which makes this little rifle very deadly.
I think this is a combo tha those in states that look down on EBR's could carry as a very effective option.
