Realistic Use of the MKII Pistol for Carry & Home Defense

Post by CPTKILLER » 27 Feb 2015, 09:08

I've looked at pricing and availability of ammo and of course the MKII pistol. All of the prices seem to be around $1000 when available.

The Masterpiece Arms 5.7X28mm pistol is of zero interest to me.

As a serious defense weapon, my question has nothing to do with size or reliability. Both are as expected. What about this as a realistic carry or home defense weapon? I'm in Austin, Texas know about Hasan at Fort Hood. I was here then. All it did was to give this pistol a bad name. I was also a armor and cavalry officer there earlier.

Any thoughts on the new version?

It is a much better design then the USG. I use mine for everyday use.
