I have an MPA45 45ACP rifle with an Uzi folding stock on it. 30 round straight mags. My buddy says it's the most evil looking firearm he's ever seen. With the stock folded down, the rifle fits into the crook of my elbow. Its my house clearing solution.

What bag is that?

It's easy to debate ballistics, but what matters is training and accurate/multiple-fast follow up shots and many of the very compact 9mm "pistols" are more than capable inside 100 meters. Again, application is what's more important.

I really didn't expect much, but it turned out to be an excellent bag for such smaller braced-pistols. Very non-descript with good capacity, and construction is top notch.

I have an older AR carbine set up to take 9mm Sten magazines; it's a freaking brute. I also (stupidly) purchased a JRC take-down that takes Glock 9mm magazines. Concept is nice, weight is will be sold or given away eventually.

In the much more compact "pistol w/ brace" form, they fill a narrow niche, but they fill it really well; almost a PDW-style niche. I won't lie though, much of their appeal is the fun-factor I don't see them as a CCW or rifle-caliber carbine replacement and while you could easily make the argument for a slightly larger rifle-caliber pistol (with brace), some of the 9mm braced-pistols can be much smaller. You might be able to get a 5.56mm pistol in a briefcase, but can you get 200 rounds in as well?

Again, not ideal if going up against zombies with plates or traversing open terrain with 500+meters line-of-sight, but for some situations, it can be a solid choice if something more than CCW might be needed for range/accuracy and capacity, but compact enough to carry concealed with a combat-load without drawing any attention.

ROCK6, I'm a little late on this thread but how do you like your MPX-K? Any recommended mods?
