    A pistol caliber carbine would be just fine. I wouldn't expect my novice family members to perform well beyond 100 yards regardless of the weapon.

    I would prefer something more like a .45 or .357, but .40 or 9mm would probably do the trick.

    I do have a little reluctance about Hi-Point. My experience with their handguns was not thrilling but I've heard little negatives in regards to the carbines. Even if they are reliable, I still don't think they'd have the ruggedness of a military arm.

    Excellent suggestion mcp1810.

    I'm keeping my AR15 because it's likely we won't be able to buy them in the furture. It's my gun if things get real bad. They can't be beat for versatility, i.e., close quarters out to 300 meters. Beyond that I really think a lever action in .357 or the new remmington pump rifle in .223 are excellent choices. I can appreciate the idea of stocking a quantity of rifles but I don't have the same family situation so for me and my kids we'd use what's in the safe.

    I wouldn't worry about the recoil on a Nagant I used to shoot my carbine all day and never got too sore. just slap a new butt pad on there and the smaller folks should be fine. But personally I would get a few Nagant's and a few AK's/SKS for a sustained rate of fire from your group.

    I'm satisified with the trade-off.
