Overkill, .45 in the MB, that sounds like a good idea! You and I think alike.
If you could be in the most ideal place in your house when an intruder breaks in.
What gun/type would you most-likely want to grab first?

Personally I have always wanted an HK MP5. It fires a relatively inexpensive round (9mm), it would be a lot of fun to take out an plink with at 800 rounds per minute and it has an exceptional reputation for reliability. With that said, would it be next to my bed in case of a burglar breaking in...probably not, but I would have the option should I choose to have it there.

Anything that fires a round larger than a 9mm in my opinion to be too costly to be able to shoot often enough to really enjoy.

If money were no object - a mini-gun would be the have-to-have weapon though. Not because of the ridiculous cyclic rate, but just the engineering involved to make it function at the rate that it does. It is an amazing weapon system.

So far it sounds like the pistol caliber carbine is just good for fun. and in some cases collecting.

yes, it is still a gun so it could sill be used for Home Defense but so could a baseball bat.
Topic concluded?

So what one do i want to buy for my pistol caliber carbine that would be the most fun?
I'm thinking Tommy. Can i get one of those in CA?

Dear Santa,
I would like a Thompson SMG (pref. full auto) with at least two 100 round drums. I would also like a half dozen assorted bears and some tarps.
Thanks!

Like perhaps one of these from my favorite company - Dillon

In the MBR, If I'm in bed, the 1911 is in the night stand. The CX-4 is under the bed. And the XD40SC is in the dresser, when it isn't in the living room table. Downstairs I have a snubbie in a desk drawer. So, I guess the MBR would be the best place to hold off the zombie skirmishers. If get to the safe quickly....

Since the laws are so BS, I've decided on this...

Should I ever decide to buy a full auto, $15,000 firearm, I will instead purchase $15,000 worth of AK 47s and ammunition and donate them to a local militia.

Actually, poetic justice would be if you stole 15,000$, so you

could legally purchase and own a MG...

I think like said before the price of full auto is so high due to the ban and limited numbers. However as far as home defense carbine I recently bought a Kriss vector and LOVE it!!

Bretta Cx4 Storm ... ?

Maybe I'm thinking along the lines of if someone is to buy their first gun,
Is it practical for for a first/only gun? In my list of types to own, it is the last on my list to collect.

Here is my list in order:

[*]12 ga Shotgun[*]Pistol[*]Rifle (or Carbine)[*] ... more of the above[*]pistol-caliber carbine


Completely impractical just for fun list
[*]Bow[*]Cross-bow[*]Black powder rifle or pistol
My brother just shot the bretta storm yesterday and loved it
