m1 carbine for home defense?
 
Would it be suitable for home defense?
Also is auto ordnance a good m1 carbine manufacturer?
Lastly- is ammo commonly available?
Thanks in advance

Yes the carb is a great old firearm. However the good ones are way too expensive for you interest. The ammo is very expensive. I would look at the 9MM High Point carbine for your use. The Marlin Camp gun also in common handgun ammo from Walmart.:)

Hello have looked into those.the hp995, dont like its design. I had me set on the ruger pc9, problem is i cant find one, discontinued in early 2000s. If i find one, i wouldn't hesitate. Saw the m1 and saw it very versatile but ammo pricing was a disappointment. Might hold off for a ruger pc than.

the 30 carbine ammo is almost twice as much as 9mm. I have seen M1 carbines for sale from $300 on up. The 9MM High Point has only 10 rd magazines. the 30 carbine has 15 and 30 round.

To hiwall- true yet unfortunately im in cali. So a 15 rd or 20 is a big nono :(...

Forget that I'm getting out of here as soon as I can; and my family's been here for 7 generations.

I respect your decision.

Yep, Thats what Billy the Kid said when he left Oklahoma. I think I will move to New Mexico. How did that move work out for Ole Bill:confused:
