    Assault pistols

    it seems this category has been picking up a lot the last 2 years.
    i don't remember the first specific one that really caught my eye but the AR15 pistol, the keltec plr22 and the 16, and the ruger charger really got me to start researching.
    Could we really start buying some guns like the MP5 in semiautomatic?
    I almost sprung for the GSG 22's in January but held off not knowing a lot about the company.
    then............
    With the M&P 15-22 Pistol - has this set a new trend?

    We know the ar15 can be configured in several rifle calibers and now they are starting the pistols in the 22 - CAN IT BE - COULD IT BE THAT THIS COULD BECOME AVAILABLE IN 45ACP?

    Forget the semi auto MP5 and other PDW's - the AR15 based frame could set the industry for several new items - i would luv to see S&W bring out this config in 45ACP

    THOUGHTS?

    GSG lost a law suit brought against them by HK. It is my understanding that they were only allowed to sell it for a little while longer, and then they must stop manufacturing them. So, if you want one, you better get one now.

    I don't know much about this field of weaponry, I just wanted to through out there that utilizing the word "assault" is NEVER good idea, and a terrible habit to get into. it conjures images of offense, and thing's like columbine and Virginia tech in the eyes of the media and gun grabbers. With every use of the word your practically hindering the protection of, and perhaps even chipping away at, the right of the second amendment. there are surely much more suitable (perhaps technical) term's for what your talking about other than this catchword which has such a massive negative attitude brought towards it. not to mention it promotes ignorance among the gun savi and gun ree ree's alike

    so what should the industry call them?

    wrongfully - the ar15 is called an assault rifle but they still call them that

    I know the intent was honest, but I have to agree with Gunners point, and it was the first thing I thought when I read the title of the thread. We are facing so much adversity with all of the left wing "control" advocates that we really do have to be careful with how we word things. They also use the word "assault rifle" to describe my Ruger 10/22, and that is hardly accurate. Perhaps something closer to "modern" or something along that line would be more appropriate. I can't think of anything clever atm but good point anyway, gunner.

    Perhaps "forward magazine pistol" or "magazine forward pistol".
    Unfortunately those wouldn't be appropriate for items such as the MPA MAC-type pistols, or the Claridge, which fit the type but put the mag in the grip.
