    Ruger PC Carbine

    After being out to the range a couple of times with my new 9mm PC Carbine, I want all to know that it really is a easy and enjoyable weapon. It is not a long rifle for precision distance shooting. It is dead-on for distances up to 100 yards according to others who have this carbine.

    I have only shot mine shorter distances so far and it has been awesomely accurate. I am no longer able to shoot for long spells from the shoulder. Yet, even with this negative, I put hits on target just where I want to print. With the bipod extended, I am deadly accurate each and every time I press the trigger.

    If you have the chance, handle one of these pieces. Ruger did a superb job designing and building this carbine.Zeroed 25 yard bipod target.jpg

    I liked the original design better, but with all the Glock mags out there, hard to NOT like it.
    Am I blessed or possessed?

    What do you mean by original design? Ruger didn't make the Mini-14 in 9mm, did they?
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    Ruger made both a 9mm and .40 PC from 1996 to 2006. It was a different design than my 9mm PC carbine first marketed in 2017.

    My 2017 model is a takedown while I am not sure that the original also separated.

    Nah. I mean the original Ruger carbines. they looked like an updated M-1 carbine.
