    I have an old Win94 30-30 with and a Ruger PC-9 carbine to supplement my 12ga, 357 and 9mm selections.

    The PC-9 uses the same mags as my Ruger P-89 pistol and the mags are a dime a dozen. Its semi-auto and has a blowback action. Very reliable, fun to shoot, cheap to buy. I got mine for under $300.




    No I'm not paranoid; I have a large house, barn and am typically more worried about the 4-legged problems that the 2....

    Perhaps a .30 M1 carbine.

    Light weapon about 8lbs and 20+ inches long. .30 caliber round is effective. Magazines range from 5 to 30 rounds.

    I have a Universal Arms .30 carbine and like it.

    This can't be true. Seriously? I shoot 147 grain HP's that I got a case of from a LEO friend. They feed well and I believe they are standard pressure. Typically I have my Walther PPS and my Fenix LD20 bedside but if the situation called for turning up the heat I could always fall back to the PCC for some metal storm action.

    It is true.

    Seriously.

    See the link above for proof.

    .223 tends to yaw after hitting something solid; when it yaws, it breaks apart...9mm tends to keep driving on.

    Actually, very true. Because of their slower velocity, pistol rounds have less of a tendency to break up on impact. Rifle rounds tend to self-destruct.

    There was an episode of MythBusters where they were trying to test the myth of being able to dive under water to escape someone shooting at you. They found that pistol rounds were still lethal at a pretty good distance (around 12 ft. IRC) but they could not recover any rifle rounds as they disintegrated when they hit the water. They even borrowed a swimming pool and tried it with a 50 BMG and even the big fifty blew up in the water.

    I stand corrected. Good thing I didn't say "prove it and I'll eat my words" because getting this 24" widescreen in my big mouth would be a chore.

    This stuff stays attached to my belt, in the pants next to the bed. Shoes are there as well.



    This isn't far away. Although it's got a 235lumen Fenix PD30 mounted ahead of the front sight (not pictured)

    I have a 95lb Doberman Pincsher. If she fails the ward off the threat then I have my AR with Frangible ammo.

    In addition you may not have to shoot your carbine if they break in. ARs look scaaaaaaaaary..... especially if you equip a green beam on em'

    Good grief...

    There's just so much wrong with that statement/belief that it's hard to know where to start...

    If it's night, how will the intruder see it? The green beam, yes...which will show them right where you are, without really effecting their ability to fight back...but they ain't gonna see the rifle; for all they know, it's a pointer...

    Give me a high-lumen light that will blind them momentarily while I ID them, determine if they're armed, and any other factors that may need to be addressed, instead of trying to scare them with a tacticool lazer.

    I think you're taking his post too literal and serious. He is right however that AR's are very intimidating weapons and it doesnt necessarilly mean its going to be pitch black when using a laser either. They will probably see the gun. Take it for what its worth man.
