No real advantage over a basic 5.56mm AR SBR, takedown and conceal ability are about the same. Reloading components are easier to find in a 5.56mm also.

Another example of a pistol-caliber carbine that soft armor WON'T stop...

OMG, I just LOL'ed...

Garand (anyone on the planet, for that matter) pointing out to John Davis how an AR shorty is a better option than the carbine JD posted about...

Both of you are actually correct imo. The AR is the better option, but the story demonstrates how close the gap can be with other guns.

it aint close at all, 10mm and 223.. This special ammo costs 3x what 223 sp's cost, it won't have 1/2 the effective range, either. It has no 22 unit, cant use our GI rd or mags. I haven't looked at the price, but I bet it's lot more than the $600 that gets you a fine AR in 223, regular 10mm loads will have about 50% more recoil, too. So, other than having some power with subsonic ammo, it's a loser.
