No more AR "pistols".
Six- to 7-pound pistols that you "conceal" in a backpack? Four articles (three on the guns and one on the backpack) in the October issue of G&A? Your summation on the [new CZ] Bren pistol about says it all: "For me, the highly anticipated 805 Bren PS1 has nothing to do with need and everything to do with want" Okay, I want to shoot the PS1 (or the Roscoes or the OA-93/98), and .223 plinking ammo is available at a relatively reasonable price, at least when compared to large-caliber handgun rounds. But would I want to own an AR-15 pistol? I can't see any scenario where one would serve me better than a conventional pistol or a real AR-15 carbine. And since I'm not 25-years-old (except in my imagination), anything having more than a 6-pound curb weight would literally drag me down fairly quickly. Which brings me to the real deal breaker: Since these AR-15 pistols are built, sold and licensed as handguns under BATFE regulations, it would be illegal to add a buttstock and use the gun(s) as AR-style carbines after the pistol fun factor wears thin.
