I post without reading the forum rules please forgive me.
Kit – My wife and I both maintain CARsenals (see pic - hers in 9mm and mine in 40S&W), in which we each maintain a Sub 2K with mounted light, red-dot and tactical sling along with a Glock (34 or 35 in paddle holsters along with mag carrier and 1.75" heavy leather gunbelt) and fifteen (15) loaded ten (10) round mags, plus other necessities inside combo-locked Pelican 1495 ‘laptop’ cases equipped with shoulder straps for easy (and/or inconspicuous) carry. Said CARsenals are secured into our respective vehicles, with 1/2" armored cable and padlocks.
Training – we regularly train at our local range (usually late on Sunday afternoons/early evenings when essentially everyone has gone home), including dismounting both the ‘laptop’ cases and ourselves, from the vehicles, and then deploying the weapons from the cases, kitting up, and then moving to engage multiple targets. Sometimes we have the targets set up at some distance down the range so that we have to move to contact (both with and without cover) and then engage, and other times the targets are close nearby. We try to simulate active shooter situations (always fun employing one or more Bleeding Zombie “terrorist” (note any resemblance to a POS jihadi, is purely unintentional) 3-D targets), when we do this. We have also trained with the same kit, in CQB and Room Clearing classes that we’ve taken from our instructors (retired SoCal PD training and canine officers). The Sub 2K’s have never failed to function and have never failed to deliver lead on target. For civilian use as a rapid response, easy-to-transport SHTF/Need to Arm/Fight Right Now weapon, the Sub 2K seems to work great. On the other hand, given major civilian unrest (e.g., say on Day 3 and thereafter in SoCal, following a Richter 8 earthquake and everyone who has failed to adequately prepare starts running our of food, water and wants to ‘permanently borrow’ our supplies, etc.), and assuming that we’re at home when the SHTF, then the Sigs, Benelli’s and SCAR’s will make their pre-scheduled appearances and our adherence to the 2nd Amendment will be amply vindicated.
However, that’s not to state that the Sub 2K should be presumed to replace the M4 or the M1014, 870, etc., for the roles those weapons are designed to fulfill. Each has it place in self-defense and in support of the Constitution (… enemies foreign and domestic … ) and successful employment is dependent upon the situation and properly training-in-preparation, therefore.
