    Dear THR:
    Which would prefer for HD- Glock 18C or MP5-k? Both fire 9mm and compact. Glock 18C is more compact and can be fitted with front grip- so I think Glock 18C. I have no problem controlling it. Takes practice but its doable.

    Thank you

    for home defense no question. mp5K. Much larger gun, will be easier to control, especially with a single point sling to brace against.

    There are stock adapters for Glocks that take pretty much any AR stock, so I'd say Glock. Couple the stock with the foregrip and you've got a great, very compact, lightweight SMG.

    There are also very readily available, highly reliable factory 33rd magazines.

    I really do envy you. You must have an amazing collection. I get jealous every time you start a new thread. :eek:

    Neither one.

    Using an NFA firearm for HD is doing no one any good.

    Not you, maybe not the BG, and most certainly not all the other NFA firearms owners in the country after it hits the national news media.

    He doesn't live in the US. His rules are different. Now, back to the question: which one would be the BETTER weapon? I think the HK wouild be more controllable.

    I agree Hk is as soft as it gets in auto, but the shear compactness and rare availability of Glock 18 makes it an awesome toy to say the least.

    In the house: MP-5. If you have the chance, though, you should check out the new SIG MPX. I was very impressed.

    I believe he's in Italy, and specially licensed.

    MPX is not available.
    Recently imported EVOIII by CZ though. Lets see how it check out. Still in clearence. Should have it by end of the month.

    Italy is a great place with cheesey lasagna with extra sauce no meat.

    We can't HAVE the Glock here in the US, so the point is moot.

    Well, if we loon at it that way, lots of topics will go moot since there is hardly and new (post ban) automatic contraption that can be owned in the US. However, some people are not it the US, have used them in services or have access to them as dealer sample etc.

    While those are some nice weapons, a shotgun is more effective and it would keep NFA out of the limelight.

    Guys! Reading comprehension. el Godfather is outside the US and can own all the full autos he wants.

    Anything he does with them has nothing to do with the National Firearms Act, and it isn't relevant what we can't have in the US.

    I agree, but that is not reality. And I agree that not discussing things that are simply moot might limit discussion. But since I can't have the Glock, there is no way for me to make an educated choice. The HK would be the only choice for me between the two.

    Neither.

    If you shoot that G-18C indoors at night, you still won't be seeing when the police get there. And assuming you could get both of them, the G-18 is a LOT more expensive.

    And while I love shooting MP-5s, and have had a lot of trigger time on them, I will never grab a handgun if I can get a long gun instead. Meaning, I would rather use any AR-variant carbine than an MP-5, if I can use anything I want.

    I am also on the side that says the advantage gained by using an NFA item for defense isn't worth the extra risk that the DA is going to believe you were a little too enthusiastic about the idea. (Even in Utah.) I train my soldiers that they will almost never use anything other than semi-auto fire unless they are using the machine gun.
