The Firing Line
I've been thinking about getting a sub-machine gun for home defense. I figured if they're the preferred weapon of choice for military and police forces when it comes to room clearing then it's most likely the best option for home defense as well. The problem is automatic weapons are extremely expensive, often illegal and if you own one your family thinks you're crazy. So considering that, I'm interested in possibly purchasing semi-automatic versions of popular sub-machine guns such as the MP5 as the next best alternative to the real thing. My questions are do they even exist? And if so how expensive are they? Are they easier to own legally? And how reliable are they?
Thanks a million in advance.
