    That "no" was supposed to be a "yes" only to be sabotaged by my fat thumbing tendencies. Sorry.

    Sincerely,
    The internet polls failure.

    PDWs are rifles, imho, and the rifle sub-forum is not overwhelmed by their current popularity.

    I think "PDW" fits nicely in the rifles category, personally. The current rash of threads is really no different than what happens when @Dagga Boy starts talking about AUGs or Langdon drops a new M9 variant, and I say that as somebody who is severely tempted by the whole thing.

    Maybe a PDW/PCC forum?
    God Bless,

    PCC implies a legacy pistol cartridge (9mm, 40, 45, etc).

    PDWs can be either pistol, SCHV, or rifle cartridge chamberings.

    Creating a PDW/PCC forum separate from the rifle forum would make things nebulous. People already have a hard enough time putting things in the correct subforums and threads.

    Regardless of whether you want a separate sub forum or not, the PDW thread has gone from start to 130 pages, and spawned a number of related threads, all in less than one month. The only thread in this sub forum that is remotely close is the AK thread, and that is about 50 pages in 5 years.

    So why is the PDW thread so popular ó probably a number of reasons. Letís face it, shotguns are the bread and butter of long gun use for civilians, but absent special use like for bears in Alaska, or for training, they hardly get out of the gun safe or bedroom closet to see sunlight. Outside of mil/LE, hunting, competition and training, it is pretty unusual have a long gun out in general use. So we have all these shotguns and rifles, that unlike our handguns that are carried daily, hardly get out. Here is where the PDW comes in ó something rifle or pistol caliber that will fit into an EDC pack, and provide either better terminal ballistics, better technical shooting capability, or both, than your handgun. As someone goes about life, they have the capability to bring more than a handgun without dragging around a case long enough to carry a shotgun or rifle.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    I voted "No" but I admit this is a persuasive argument.
