Joe Biden Liberal anti-gun wack job and the Media push shotguns. The reason they are longing for a Socialist America like Europe. The "Sheep" there are only allowed shotguns. A cup wad carrying 1 1/4 Oz. of lead at 10 feet will go thru many walls.
Hello gentlemen,
This sheep owns a PDR, high capacity pistols, Mauser action rifle and tactical shotgun. The reason the guns are high quality is the age/experience of the companies, consumer expectations, quality of gunsmith schools and the old gun culture of Europe. In Austria, the gunsmith must create a masterpiece out of raw materials to past the final test. This is coupled by advance R and D, and a large worldwide small arms demand. Many companies make quality handguns, machine guns, carbines, SMGs and bolt action rifles. Not just shotguns.

Nite, I just called Cimarron & Chip said Armi-Sport of Italy is the manufacturer for their '92 replicas. I tell you, IF Uberti EVER decided to offer a '92 replica, based on my 73's workmanship, I will be on it like UGLY ON AN APE!!!!!! My best to you, jd45

Jagermeister, well, it looks like you have all your bases covered, to refer to an American baseball expression, IF you're not an expatriot & would've understood it automatically. In any case, I hope you don't have to use your guns in an "OH, S**T" situation, but come out standing, if you do, & the BG is, at least, done fighting, if not dead. Hope you find your carbine........doesn't Marlin offer one in this caliber? jd45

I am an American working for DOD. Lived most my 42 years in Germany. I am a military brat. Married a local and stayed over here. The only .45 carbines in the LGSs are the Baretta Storm and the HK. Hera Arms makes one in 9mm, but also has the convertible carbine attachments for many pistols. Hera-Arms.com. I just bought the AR, and looking to hold off on buying more firearms for a couple of years. I am looking for a good scope for the AR though. My Eotech is not the best for hunting past 100 meters. Most likely a Leupold with fire dot. Peace.

Jagermeister, thanx for the prompt reply, & forgive my critque, but I bought a Leupold 6-1/2-20X40 to put atop of my Remington 700 VSS in .308 several years ago & found the optics didn't measure up to what they wanted for it. I fired a Rem 700 Sendero in 7MM soon after with a Nikon Monarch of the same power & was astounded at the brilliance & clarity of it. If I were you, I'd check out several brands before I plunked down my hard-earned cash, rather than assume an American company would give you the best bang for your Marc, (grin) jd45

I want as simple as possible design for reliability and ease of maintenance. It would be great if it took common easy to find magazines and had decent aftermarket support.

Outside one's dwelling may be another matter & I like the idea of a Rossi '92 in .45 Colt for that situation,.....in fact, I have one myself. It's VERY accurate & hard hitting with a 260 Speer JHP & a good dose of H4198. jd45. BTW, I own a few rifles & a few revolvers in this caliber, which is my favorite, hence my user name
I'm confused. Are you trying to move him away from a large projectile by recommending a shotgun? Or are you advocating the rifle that you use that slings a heavy projectile?

Bird shot is for birds. Projectiles that will penetrate deep enough into a bad guy will also penetrate drywall.

Honestly, I don't think a .45 gains too much from being shot out of a longer barrel. Besides the ancillary benefits of a shoulder stock and longer sight radius, I would guess that the powder burns too fast, petering out before the bullet has a chance to leave the barrel.


but, my vote would be for a Kriss or UMP.

SSGN_DOC, with respect, based on AGENT TIKKI's addition, wouldn't a 12-guage form of a Glazer slug be effective & safe, as I suggested? Regarding a warm-loaded .45 Colt from a rifle, that was for outside-the -home use, as I mentioned. You gotta use the right weapon & ammo for the job.....granted tho, it's not always possible. In which case you gotta use what's available & make DAMN sure you hit what you're aimin at! What say you, NUKEDR? I'm interested to read your opinion, jd45
