I bought a Ruger PC Carbine in 9mm a few months ago and just found time to shoot it over the holidays. I swapped out the mag well to use Glock magazines. I have now fired about 500 rounds through it, of various ammo types, including 115g ball and various 124 g JHPs. I experienced no malfunctions. The farthest I have shot it was at 50 yards, with iron sights only so far. I have a great deal of difficulty seeing the front sight post and the target at the same time due to the fact that I have had eye surgery, but even still I was able to get easy hits on a silhouette target. I plan put a red dot on it soon, which I think will help me tremendously. It has very little recoil and is a pleasure to shoot. The gun feels more solid than I thought it might. It definitely feels much more solid than a 10/22. I guess the question I have is, what am I going to do with it? Is it just a range toy? If so, it sure is a fun one. But with a red dot I think it could be used as a home defense gun, though I am not sure why I would use it over an AR. What do other owners of the Ruger PC Carbine use the gun for? Defense or just range toy?
