I like pistol caliber carbines. I do not as a general rule like bullpups. That being said, I do want Steyr’s new AUG in 9mm. The Firearm Blog has the details at the link, and I have to agree with Steve: this is a sexy looking gun. That noted weakness for pistol caliber carbines is acting up again, and I can definitely say that this would be a pretty awesome addition to my home defense arsenal. Despite my noted dislike for bullpups, I like that the gun has a 16.5 inch barrel on it…but the OAL is nice and short. Pistol caliber carbines make good home defense guns in my opinion, and the short OAL of this gun would make it easy to swing around indoors. Hopefully it will be available in the States…and it won’t take absurdly expensive proprietary magazines.
