MP5 or M4
« on: September 23, 2012, 09:19:23 PM »
The MP-5 fires a pistol cartridge through a shorter barrel.

The M-4 fires a rifle cartridge through a longer barrel.

In MOUT - military operations on urban terrain - you can encounter adversaries at 5 feet, 50 feet, or 100+ yards.

Next time you are walking through an urban area observe the various engagement distances you plausibly could encounter. Not merely on one plane, but also from the tops of parking structures, or across parking lots, or within malls or office complexes.

If adversaries engage you at 100+ yards using rifles and you are shooting a shotgun or pistol ammunition through a short barreled submachinegun, there are some who may conclude you are at a disadvantage.

A short carbine firing a rifle cartridge that is accurate out to 200 yards or more may very well be more useful against a broader range of potential target/distances than a submachinegun firing a pistol cartridge; at least for military operations on urban terrain.
