Wow. You’ve got a great collection. I’m going to put a few unused hunting rifles up on gunbroker soon to raise some cash, but they’re morning particularly special. The “nicest” one is probably the Browning BLR lightweight takedown in .308. Great little lever action with a removable box magazine and a brilliant little Leupold VX-1 1-4x20 mounted and zeroed for quick and easy shouldering and aiming. Perfect stalker.

One day I’d still like a smooth running 9mm SBR with last round bold hold open and Glock mag compatibility. One day.

Now this might be interesting... Palmetto State Armory has announced what’s supposed to be an affordable MP5 clone in conjunction with Magpul. We’ll have to see how affordable.

That Keltec gun seems a little unreliable though, and wicked on the recoil. It is cheap though, but Jesus, that seems like a gun with A LOT of downsides when it comes to personal protection. I.E. it seems prone to jamming and is harder than normal to solve a jam.

Asian IP address, so we're watching.

On a different note, recommendations for a moderately-priced 12ga shotgun? Preferably with a 6+ round capacity, multipurpose use.
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

Yes, moderate is very much in the eye of the beholder when it comes to price! :)

Also, every firearm is multipurpose, but understanding its primary intended usage would be helpful.

A regular old Mossberg 500 is available in both 20 and 12 gauge and is an affordable and reliable pump action option for sporting and home defense purposes. Pretty much any pump or semi-auto shotgun is going to offer 5+1 or more (if you pull the hunting plug that is otherwise required for 2+1 migratory and water fowl hunting). Often aftermarket tube extensions are available to fit a few more rounds as well.

I have the 590A1 for my home defense since 2012, with an extended tube and spring. And an 870 set up with the shorter barrel. Why choose when you can have both? :)
