Not trying to not answer your questions but there are a ton of videos about the reliability. I know because I've watched a ton! Some are even enjoyable to watch. Preferred ammo for home defense is a long lived and well argued topic and I don't usually dip my foot in to that water.Hi. Well I haven't gotten one yet just doing some research first. My questions are: How reliable is it and are there any issues? Is it being used by anyone for Home Defense? What rounds are being used in case of in-house intruder? In doing some research on 9mm ammo I read that the Federal 138gr Syntech Defense 9mm would be good for not over penetration. I ask because a shotgun guy recommend the PC9 to me instead of a heavy recoil 12 gauge.
Several of us have found Ruger SR9 magazines and Ruger mag well insert work somewhat better than Glock mags and the included Glock mag well.One other question. What has been the best magazines to use in it?
A pistol caliber carbine is certainly no joke. It's definitely a serious business self defense weapon and quite formidable. A single well aimed (or lucky) shot can easily be lethal.Is it being used by anyone for Home Defense? ...I ask because a shotgun guy recommend the PC9 to me instead of a heavy recoil 12 gauge.
For home defense having a pistol that uses the same magazine as the PCC increases your security.
I am not trying to answer a question for the author but my interpretation on that is by having guns using the same caliber and mag, if one gun or mag fails, you have interchangeable backups. Also, if you have both on you during the search you have mobility with the handgun, accuracy for the longer shot.Can you expand on this?
Starting out with a PCC and then later purchasing a same cal handgun has many benefits that increases home security.Can you expand on this? I can see how if you lived in a magazine round limited state it might be nice to have all your magazines be identical in case you had to fire more than 10+1 shots... but if you can pop a 30 round magazine in your rifle how likely are you to really need an extra? And how likely are you to need more than one additional magazine?
If even if you had say a G19 or G17 sitting on your nightstand, I'm not certain a 9mm PCC with a 33 round glock big stick magazine tucked in it would really offer you any advantage over an ar-15 with a 30/40 round magazine.
The only advantage I might see is if your PCC was somehow disabled, you could use the magazines intended for that PCC in your handgun. But even then... a G19 has 15+1 rounds... Are you really going to run dry?
My vote for best use for PCC? Truck/Car gun, particularly if you CCW with a compatible duty size pistol and extra magazines. That way you have ammo on you ready to go - especially in states where you can't transport a longarm while loaded.
