There was a special on the Military Channel on these types of weapons. Granted there's a difference for civillian semi's - but their purpose was an entry weapon that could penetrate armor with the 5.56 round, instead of the classic Mp5's they've been using.
For us sivies - NO CLUE what the purpose/market is there. (Home defense against bad guys with body armor?...)
At least with the .308 hand-cannons from Savage you can go hunting... Not sure what you'd hunt with a 5.56 though lol
Some people don't deserve saving.
....the water is almost at a boil
Everybody knows an SBR dangerous. Just look at them! They're scary. (*goes to hide under bed*)
I imagine it would do alright for home defense if you were searching the house. Holds more rounds than a handgun, and you could mount a light on it....that's just an excuse though. Its pointless...
The style has actually proven fairly popular in Eastern Europe for some "security" workers from the U.K & Ireland, who by law are not permitted to possess a short barrel semi automatic rifle, so this is a compromise for a lot of them, personally id love to be permitted to have an AR15, just not legal here, apparently Assault Style weapons can be dangerous or so Im told, hell I wanted a Walther .22 last year and was refused a license officially on the grounds that it was to military-ish looking.. go figure.
Surrounded and outnumbered, pass me my vest!
