Reliable, Awkward, Ugly

I have owned and / or test fired several Cobray M11/9 pistols and submachineguns. They are reliable. Even with some hollowpoints, so long as the mouth isn't too wide (no "flying ashtrays").

However, the gun is ugly as heck, uncomfortable to hold (it's like grabbing section of 2x4 that's bolted to a brick), and awkward to handle. I don't really like them much. But I think they'll get the job done. Sort of like a fire extinguisher. Not a lot of fun to practice with (in semi-auto mode) but effective for self-defense out to 25 yards.

One issue about carrying one is whether to keep it chamber loaded. I would not, because I find the safety to be poorly designed and not fast to disengage. For the closed-bolt semi models, I'd carry it with a mostly-loaded mag (not fully loaded, though. The pressure can bend the feed lips, which are just plastic) and an empty chamber.

One of these guns, fitted with a tactical flashlight and laser sight unit, a 30-round magazine, and a 6" screw-on barrel extension would probably be a fine home defense or anti-carjacking weapon.

Mine fires from an open bolt, 1,200 rpm, and several of the people on this forum have shot it (and there is video to prove it if anybody ever posts it - who filmed it, mzmtg?)

P.S. I CALLED MY SENATOR AND THE RULES CHAIRMAN BEFORE TAKING THE TIME TO POST THIS
