    MP5 vs Cmmg Mk4 PDW

    123
    Hey everyone!

    I am new to this forum but have some experience shooting. I am finally on my own and looking for a good home defense weapon. I would prefer to get a smg and just sbr it but I am stuck with a few options and was wondering if someone "in the know" could chime in to help.

    I have been looking at the AA 89 pistols (Atlantic Arms MP5 clones in 9mm) as well as the CMMG Mk4 PDW (300 blackout) I also came across the Sig MPX (9mm) which looked like an awesome option as well. I will suppress whichever gun I get. The most important thing for me is accuracy, and noise. I want to be able to hear whats going on around me if someone comes into my house (the quieter the better). I do plan on going to the range pretty regularly with whichever weapon I get so cost of ammo is a consideration too (I know the 300 blackout is pricey). Anyone with experience shooting these types of guns that could give me a recommendation for one over the other would be great!!

    This is for home defense and for a ton of fun at the range!

    Thanks

    You are going to use a suppressed SMG for home defense? You will end up in prison, or bankrupt if you ever use it.
    It seems odd that you would choose that combo, that constitutes 2 separate Class III weapons.
    The SMG and the silencer, I mean. How do you propose to defend yourself in court, if you ever use it?
    The whole thing sounds naive or bogus.
    I have experience firing an MP5 full-auto, and there is not a better gun in the world, for SWAT/SF/SEAL.

    For a civilian a Mini-14 is more apropos, or an AR-15. You will certainly have an easier time in court, if you ever use it.
    BTW: A true SMG (Sub Machine Gun) already is classified as a SBR (Short Barreled Rifle). Are you using jargon, trying to impress?

    Just out of idle curiosity............

    How will using a legally owned suppressed SMG for home defense get you sent to prison?

    The reason I asked is because I myself have a suppressed Vector MP5/40 for home defense.
