I have this stupid 9mm carbine and I wanted to shoot it at 3-gun. My loads out of that gun should have a higher power factor than most .223, so I have that covered.  Are there any rules against running a 9mm carbine in "outlaw rules" 3-gun?

It's completely legal.   The only problem is that it puts you into FR Class (Full Retard), and you might be the only run in the entire country running FR.   Of course, it would set you up for 1st Place in your class, everytime you shoot, so you've got that going for you... which is nice.

I know Cody likes to run that class frequently

Might be fun inside 120 yards.

200 to 500 yards seems a bit sporty.

If I get healthy enough this year, I'll be shooting a 9mm PCC, since the AR is gone and it is all I will have.

I haven't loaded up any hotter "rifle" style loads yet, but I'm guessing I can hit an 18x24" @ 400.  But we'll see.
I was hitting the 150 and 250 yard square gongs at Parma right after I bought it.

 Can we use any pistol as a carbine?

Thinking about whittling a stock and barrel for the Bersa Thunder so I can give Nealio a run in the FR class.


My vision is to take this beauty and...

Put on a hockey helmet or a full face motorcycle helmet so you don't have 'slide to cheakbone syndrome' and rip it up

A 9mm 115gr FMJ and a .22LR Hi-velocity have about the same ballistics

.190BC@1150fps or .125BC@1250fps


means you need 90 to 100moa up at 500 yards

sure, give me a sec.

But for comparison my .300WinMag needs 67moa up from 100 yards at a Mile on a warm day....
