I’m intrigued by the weapons that are formed like rifles but that use ammunition that is not traditionally a rifle caliber. Here’s one example, the Kel-Tec SUB-2000.

As you can see, it holds like a rifle with a grip, but it’s clearly a pistol with an elongated barrel and a stock. What’s the difference really? I’ve never shot one of these types of guns, but like I said, I find them intriguing.¬†You can get this for $500, chambered for either 9mm or .40 S&W. Is there some kind of advantage to these beyond simple congruence of ammunition with a handgun that you already own? Is it the price? Why would you choose something like this over, say, a traditional rifle chambered in .308?

Not saying they’re bad at all — just that I’m having trouble identifying the practical use case beyond matching ammo to a gun you already have.
