I'm actually a big fan of a .308 "pistol". It gives you a bit of an edge with an opponent that chooses to use some types of "cover" that might block a lighter caliber weapon. The block wall which is really prevalent here in the SW where I live comes to mind.

Yes I know, it has a larger muzzle blast, it reduces the velocity of the round, etc., etc. However I have found that both of mine, a Springfield Saint Victor .308 pistol, and my PTR K3P pistol, have a lot less perceived muzzle blast, flash than one would think. If the muzzle blast seems a bit excessive to you, I would recommend a Noveski Fire Pig muzzle device. I had one on a Sig P716 I had, and it worked wonders. The Springfield has a 10.3 inch barrel with a proprietary muzzle diverter, and the PTR sports 12.5 inch barrel. I can easily engage a man-size steel target at 300 meters standing off hand, so accuracy is very acceptable.

I keep toying with the idea of a XCR-M pistol, as they are truly works of art.
