^That was a really good point.
A Tavor is a bit too rich for my blood (being that I have multiple AR's already), but muzzle distance does make for an interesting discussion. I just walked towards a wall with my 10.5" with 3" KAK can. Muzzle vs muzzle, there isn't much of a difference between how I "train" with my Shield vs how I shoot with my AR.
When I practice with my pistol, I'm in a set stance....arms extended (modified Weaver). I've never really practiced "close quarter" shooting..(as in coming around the corner and being within bad breath distance) where the gun would be tucked in closer to my body.
A Tavor with a 16" barrel is just over 26 inches....a bit more if you include the flash hider.
What is a AR pistol with an 8.5 or 9 inch barrel from birdcage to buffer tube? "23? 24"? 25"? Add another inch for a LAW Tactical folding stock adapter.,..maybe a bit more depending on brace type and setting.
The right 5.56 round out of a 16" barrel will be fragment the best...so that is a plus for the Tavor.
I still need to find the right bullet (the Lehigh 194gr Max Expansion seems to be the least likely .300 round to over-penetrate....assuming you don't miss), but I'm kinda smitten with the thought of being able to fold up the .300 AR pistol and being able to toss it in a back-pack as a PDW when not being used for HD.
