Heres my take on the PCC9

Original sporter/classic set up is awesome
Tactical non pistol grip version with barrel shroud fugly
Tactical with pistol grip right back to awesome

nice addition

If I could afford the sporter I would be all over it. I think a pistol caliber carbine is genius for suburban life.

Of course being in California would require me to neuter the pistol grip version to a fixed mag which defeats the purpose

Nice Bepe. One day I will pick up one, but I have to have the boring one.

We can only get the basic model here in CA. Curious as to whether that other configuration is heavier.
Everything is restricted here except the weather. Been Spring for a month already.
Here’s mine with Romeo5

Ok, did the homework.
The AR style is half a pound heavier at 7.3 vs 6.8 pounds.
Unfortunately my trifocals eyes still suck.

Lever action carbine in .357 and .44 mag has the energy and range over the semi-auto 9mm and .45cap however consider ye suitability for the possibility of urban gunfight the semi-auto with rate of fire and hi-cap magazine swap has the edge by far.
Hunting purpose the lever likely is best choice for most (just IMO, I don't own a lever - action but would like to have a .357 companion for my GP100 Ruger). I've shot a buddy'sMarlin he loads 158 gr. SJSP that really have wallop on 1/2" steel hot rolled swinging discs I fab for shoot our carbines.

.44 Magnum is above my pay grade.
Sold my S&W model 64, 10 years ago when I had my first thumb joint replacement.
Had the other thumb joint replaced a few years ago as well.
I may be all pop gun, but I’m all in with heart. Lol.

I figured the PCC will be a better SHTF weapon instead of the 5 shot GP. I already have a standard PCC-9. Ruger came out with the AR style after I had bought mine. I wanted the AR style but wasn't going to spend the bucks on a duplicate rifle.

Geared up with a load of Glock mags and a Trijicon RMR laying in the box. Just waiting for delivery.

I'll keep you all filled in.

I like the Ruger carbine. Couple of years ago, as soon as it made its way onto my state's "approved" list, I bought a CZ Scorpion carbine, which I love. I've been tempted from time to time to convert it but the temptation usually passes. Works nicely with my 9mm suppressor.

My son wants to get into the pistol caliber carbine game and has his sights set on the Ruger PCC model 19122. At the moment he can’t find one in-stock anywhere.

The gun store was pretty much wiped out of anything decent.

GO....tell the son to hang patient. These are a nice unit. Well worth the wait. He'll be happy when he gets it.

You are right and I told him to be patient but you know how the younger generation is with instant gratification. He is still considering the High Point carbine but I told him he would eventually regret it.

I own both the Hi-Point 995 TS and the Ruger PC Carbine in 9mm and really like them both. Actually I go way back to the old days and own the original Hi-Point 995 and the original Ruger PC9. Yes...I really like pistol caliber carbines!

If it were a situation where one could only have one then that might require a significant ponder, but if a person likes pistol caliber carbines I would actually recommend owning both.

My two cents...if the 995 TS is available now then get it and start having fun and keep your eyes peeled for the PC Carbine and get it when it is available.

I can't imagine anyone having any regrets in owning both of these fine rifles. I sure don't.

Twice the gun...twice the fun!

YMMV

I own a 995ts, it now has a fin grip on it(CA Compliant) but i never was able to remove the bullet button. If I could have an unneutered 995 I would absolutely trust it with my life

Agreed. I am blessed to live in a free region, and so am unfettered by silly attempts to suck the joy out of the use of firearms.

To echo Bepe, I have never really understood those who advocate for a pistol in 9mm (or any other caliber for that matter) and then say that a PCC is foolish and unsuitable for self-defense?

I am a poor shot with a pistol and a much better shot with a rifle. I hope I never need to find out...but I really believe that either the Hi-Point or the Ruger are sufficiently reliable that the liberal and rapid delivery of 9mm copper jacketed lead welcoming gifts from either would provide me reasonable odds of living to see another sunrise.

I agree with jumpluff.... I was a kid raised with daisy bb guns. I would feel way more comfortable putting rounds center mass @ suburban defensive distances under stress with a carbine than a pistol. A PCC is definitely on my list of toys I "need".

with all that said my go to defensive weapon is currently a 9mm pistol with a crimson trace green laser as a crutch.

I moved the rear sight all the way to the left until no adjustment left. Still shot to the right. After getting it home and a very close inspection of looking down the top of the frame ...you could see the barrel was slightly cocked to the right.

A few days before the COVID mania hit I called Ruger and they emailed me a shipping label to New Hampshire. They called me end of week. The gun is toast. We'll give you a new one for zip.

I'm a bad feller, got a new daisy BB gun for 10th birthday and as a sworn member of the notorious 'gang of 7' here in the 'hood I was mighty pumped up and more so when I had a chance to ruin straying cats' hunts.
The practice I had with that daisy stood me in good stead years later when I qualified with small arms in the military.
Today I have the 9mm and 45 Marlin with the handguns that pair the ammo and magazines. Someone armed with a PCC is to be respected in a SHTF environment.
That said I really admire the Ruger take down and KelTec folder.
