    Hey everyone, I'm in need of some major help. I need a carbine, shortest overall length, as little recoil as possible and lots of rails for accessories. Guns I've looked at just to give you an idea are the PS90, CX4 storm, FS2000, HK USC. Any help would be greatly appreciated. It will be for home defense and target shooting. And I live in NY

    Get a bullpup...or better yet, a Marlin Camp 9 & a Muzzlelite Bullpup kit.

    Of course, being in NY, you're screwed from getting the really good stuff...like a Calico Liberty III :)

    hopefully y'all will be able to vote out some Dems in November and get some gun laws cancelled :D

    lot less than most centerfire calibers and maybe a little more than some pistol calibers. at 1900-2000 fps MV and 800-900 ft. lbs. ME, i would think that with the right loads it could be used effectively as a SD round. i would be fun to shoot at the range and could be used for hunting game at close distances.

    I have a Ruger PC9 police carbine. They are no longer made, but still easy enough to find used. They are indestructible and very reliable, and shoot 9mm or .40 depending on the version. For what you are asking for, this would be a good choice.

    Yup, get a Hi-Point Carbine in either .40 or .45. Can't beat the reliability, cost and warranty.
