Maybe the new name, PC Carbine instead of PC9, is foreshadowing of a variety of calibers, not just 9mm?  10mm has become more popular and a little more mainstream in the last few years, but I'd expect to see a .45 ACP and a .40 S&W option before a 10mm, if there even is an option.

I've kind of wanted, or tried to talk myself into wanting a Sub 2000 for a few years, but that's a homely looking gun, and it's a Kel-Tec.  The gen 2s are a little better looking, with some nicer features, but still leaves a lot to be desired, and again Kel-Tec.  The PC Carbine doesn't fold in half like the Sub 2K, but does separate in two, is a much better looking gun, gives you some magazine flexibility like the Sub 2K, though with the Sub 2K you have to decide what mags you want to use and purchase that version, there's no interchangeable magwell, and finally the PC Carbine is a Ruger.

I've been half-ass collecting stuff to build an AR-9, but I think I rather have this Ruger, than another AR.

Here's the old PC9 version:

looks like my old sears 6C...that blew up in my face

The King Air is a good one. However I preferred flying the Swearingen Merlin IIIC and the Mitsubishi MU2  . Pictures to follow I can't get them to load off the phone

If you're going to go executive, why not go in style?

In reply to Appleseed :

Don't those guys on the deck have any place to hide?

Or do they think they are bullet proof?

There is no need for a human to stand at flight deck level, they could put a semaphore on a pole if they need to signal.

Those Mitsubishis produced noise way out of proportion to their size! I got some time in a King Air B100, and typical of someone used to PT-6s, I was always a little suspicious of its Garrett Grenade engines. Back in the '80s, a lot of my friends flew Metro IIIs for American Eagle. They called them Death Tube, San Antonio Sewer Pipe, or The Screamin' Weenie.

My ride from the late '90s. It was up for sale recently.

Looks like there could be, but when an aircraft flips into your lap I doubt there's much scramble time.  Hopping over the side may just kill you.
