    A family sized can of aerosol deodorant, bigfoots(bigfeet?)hate it. :neener:

    The AK pistol could make a good truck gun, but a true rifle or carbine doesn't take much more space and is more accurate. Of course the mini AK is easier to maneuver inside the truck if that need arose.

    I think you're better off with a real rifle or a more potent handgun than one of those odd things. They're too in-between. The weight and bulk of a rifle but with the short barrel and no buttstock, you lose potency and the ability to hit more easily. Too large and unwieldy to conceal or function as a proper handgun.

    Wow, you think you need a short rifle just because you are driving on deserted roads? What happens when a round .223 hits someone in a house just off that road? Really?

    I'm a revolver guy but I do practice with a 1911 too. If you are going somewhere a 1911 with a spare mag or two isn't enough protection, don't go there or don't go there alone! Just because a road is deserted doesn't make it dangerous unless it's only in your mind. A short .223 rifle for SD, really?

    Craig's post is the other reason I got rid of mine. I thought it'd be cool but for all practical purposes, a true handgun is easier to shoot out of a vehicle window due to its size and weight.

    I found the Sig P556 gained me nothing in so far as defense goes, and the novelty wore off quickly at the range. I could hit a target at 50 yards consistantly and relatively quickly, but a lightly built rifle would do the job better.

    For me anyway. Your results may be different.

    OA-93

    I used to haul my OA-93 around quite a little bit. Once I got 'er tuned up, figured what to feed reliably and found a sweet sling it was handy and confidence inspiring - though large.

    Eventually because it ran so well and I was given too good an offer, it went down the road.

    I'm a service pistol guy. No AR or AK pistols for me. I respect them, though. A guy I know travels a lot, and keeps an AR pistol with him (in addition to a full size 1911) for 'home defense' on the road. It's fair to say he's not trusting of strangers around motels.
