Now for the video.
Special thank you to sootch00 for making this excellent video.
On a personal note, I have always been interested in a rifle that is chambered in a handgun caliber. However, I have not been able to bring myself to purchase one. Before I make the purchase, I have to justify what role would the rifle play?
My rifles are divided into two categories, home/property defense and hunting. I live in a rural area, have chickens and plan on getting goats and maybe some cattle. From time to time a coyote will pick off a chicken. I worry about predators getting my goats when I get a few on the farm.
The 223 Remington / 5.56mm is good for predators. I can justify having a rifle in 223 Remington / 5.56mm based on various factors.
On the other hand, I can not bring myself to justify having a rifle chambered in a handgun cartridge, but that is me.
Someone who lives in an urban area, concerned about civil unrest and wants to standardize their handguns and rifles, the CMMG MkG Guard AR-15 may be a good choice.
