    Nice write-up, Oleg. Being somewhat interested in a PCC, I went to the cmmg web site to look for the Guard. They only want to sell me a Resolute for two thousand dollars. Spending several minutes poking around trying to find pertinent information, I found no Guard, and no mention of caliber in the PCCs. I’d have to get more determined to find it.

    A pet peeve if mine is displayed in that web site, and unfortunately it’s not uncommon; “Check out or Millenium series, our Galaxy series, and our Pago-Pago series!”
    OK, but how do I know what to click on when you’re not telling me what they are? The format is designed for those who already know the product line, i.e. it’s designed by a webmaster who knows a lot about flattering the business owner with nice graphics, but nothing about serving the wants and needs of the shopper visiting for the first time.

    So I have to click, scan, read, go back, click, scan, read, go back…and eventually, maybe, I can find a 45 ACP carbine and maybe, for all I know, they haven’t got it up on the web site yet, but it’ll take me half an hour to either find out or find out that I haven’t found out.

    The mighty .45 acp in long guns? Uh look at the trajectory and fps at 100 yrds. past that you’d need to find a ridealong.

    The Thompson and M3/M3A1 both had a maximum effective range under 100 yards. The European term “Machine pistol” fits far better than anything else. The drum mag is so noisy and so jam prone that almost 300000 of them were simply abandoned by both the British and US. I cannot find a single photo of one carried in combat after mid 1943. The only use for a .45ACP carbine is as a suppressive fire weapon or one for CQB/Jungle warfare, and even them only on full auto.
