I sure wish we had a Pistol Caliber Carbine "sub-forum"

Pistol Caliber Carbine lovers...I know you are out there. I have a "sub-forum" were I can go to get my Ruger 10/22 fix and my Ruger Mini-14 fix. Now all I need to feel whole and satisfied is a Pistol Caliber Carbine sub-forum.

In my mind this would be primarily for center fire pistol cartridge firing rifles/carbines as compared to revolver cartridge firing long guns as they have the lever gun sub-forum. I would not be a hard ball on this as there are exceptions like my Ruger Deerfield Carbine that fires 44 mag. I would even peacefully coexist with the PCC firing lever guns if that is what it takes to get a PCC sub-forum established.

Although this has long been a loved category of rifles for me, it is a real gowth area right now so if you are like minded sound off and perhaps we might finally get the Moderators to set one up to stop us from whining

So...join the chorus...let us band together and see if we can get this some traction on this. I am currently really enjoying my Ruger PC Carbine in 9mm but am interested in hearing about your PCC experiences. So come on folks...sound off and let's hear some good conversation on this very popular segment of shooting sports!

I'm in. Wouldn't be much of a stretch. Drop the FN-FAL sub forum and replace it with the PCC sub forum. Heck the last post over there was back in February.

I vote for the new subforum. I have a CZ Scorpion 9mm with the 16" barrel and a real suppressor.

Ah...thanks for the tip. How do we ascertain who that is and what their contact information is? Thanks.

Thank you sir! I figure nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Colleagues I have sent the text below to Kevin as a PM requesting the establishment of a PCC subforum. If you are like minded you might consider sending him a similar...polite and respectful...request to illustrate your interest.

Now I know that you don't need my advice...but I do highly encourage that any request you send be polite and respectful. Remember what Grandma always said...you catch more flies with honey than vinegar!

At that point we have exercised due diligence and we will just hope Kevin looks favorably upon our request.

I sure wish we had a Pistol Caliber Carbine "sub-forum"

Greetings Kevin,

I would like to suggest that a Pistol Caliber Carbine "sub-forum" be established and a moderator advised me that I would need to direct my request to you.

Pistol Caliber Carbines have grown very popular and I (and I believe a number of my colleagues) would enjoy and make use of a dedicated PCC "sub-forum".

In my mind this would be primarily for center fire pistol cartridge firing rifles/carbines as compared to revolver cartridge firing long guns as they have the lever gun sub-forum. I would not be a hard ball on this as there are exceptions like my Ruger Deerfield Carbine that fires 44 mag. I would even peacefully coexist with the PCC firing lever guns if that is what it takes to get a PCC sub-forum established.

So, I respectfully request that you consider establishing a dedicated PCC sub-forum where we PCC lovers can have some good conversation on this very popular and growing segment of shooting sports!

Thank you for considering my request,
Jumpluff

I've been bugging Ruger to bring back the Deerfield, but chambered in 357 Magnum.
Would make for an awesome truck & field gun, not to mention a dandy HD weapon for ban states... aka soon to be most of the U.S.

I haven't had a respose thus far...but that is ok...I am content to be patient.

I figure Kevin may evenutally see it and respond favorably. If not....no worries...all is well.

Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction!

I'm in I got my Ruger PCC.40S&W in May and it has been to Front Sight now and is well broken in.

I have learned how to run it efficiently, and just finished putting a side mounted sling on the gun. It also has a Bushnell TRS 25 mounted which is more than adequate for any use you might have for a PCC.
