    If 35+1 rounds of 9mm doesn't stop someone then they can have whatever they want. Not much more I will be able to do to stop them.

    Nice.
    But wondering, what does it do for HD that a G35 with a happy stick and a light on the rail can't do?

    Absolutely nothing except feeling like a SBR instead of a pistol.

    That's always been my question. They do look cool and I'm sure they're fun, but they're 9mm. Why not just get an AR pistol in 300 Blackout? That's what I did. The only pistol caliber in something like that I might buy is 10mm, but even then, how is that going to be better than my G20 with a 6.5 inch threaded barrel?

    Sorry, not trying to bash your new gun, it's very cool. They've always just seemed to fill a niche that has no real purpose to me.

    I would never own one of those, but not for the reasons you think. I reload 9mm. I find it carthetic. I enjoy reloading, all calibers. I even cast my own occasionally too. That being said, if I owned a scorpion like that, I'd be loading constantly because I wouldn't be able to stop myself from pumping 1000s of rounds down range every session! :50cal:
    Enjoy it.

    For me, it's the forearm and stock.

    3 points of contact, a better grip and the muzzle is closer to you than a fully extended 35.
