    It's extremely soft shooting (roller delayed makes it kick like a strong 22) otherwise you're right I think. The appeal of the MP5 is sending a shit ton of 9 down range in a short amount of time accurately.

    Will die on this hill but a hi-point carbine (or insert whatever PCC) is just as effective.

    That said MP5 clones have always been notoriously expensive so if you want one for your collection, now is the time.

      Super low recoil while being adequate(if marginal) for self defense use and much quieter than rifles/shotguns are the big ones. Well that and fun. I thought PCCs we're pointless outside of range toys until I tried one, and I have owned others previously, now they suddenly make sense. Of course an AR-15 still makes more sense for most people imo, it's just that the MP5 crosses that line into being respectible on its own merits.

      >Will die on this hill but a hi-point carbine (or insert whatever PCC) is just as effective
      No. My scorpion for instance recoils as much as a 5.56 or .300 blk AR, it makes literally zero sense for a defensive tool unless better options simply aren't available.

      need I say more...

      Way louder with supers, identical effect on target with stupid expensive ammo with subs, significantly more recoil with either. Frankly I agree that .300 BLK SBRs are overall better if you're limited to having one or the other as a defensive tool, but if you buy your own ammo and just wanna shoot subsonics then it does a worse job at a higher price than a quality delayed blowback SMG. Do what I did and buy both.

      for 9mm? no it's not, it's a surprisingly high recoil considering it's just 9mm
      the cz scorpion is softer
      the b&t 9 is softer
      an ar-9 is much softer
      the mp5 is only kept alive by Die Hard

      This reality dawned on me recently. My dream gun is a full auto MP5SD. So let's say I could shoot one whenever I wanted. I would literally blow through hundreds of dollars worth of ammo every hour of shooting. The people having the most fun with guns right now are the youtube channels who have ammo sponsors and get rental guns sent to them for reviews.
