I'll take either in a self defense situation, But I would say that I would grab the P90/PS90 as you really can't beat 50rds on tap. Something to think about if you live in gang banger land.

Or if you have the double stacked mag that is another 50 relatively quick

I'd choose the 90 w/ optional mag clamp on a 50 for a total of 100 rnds on tap. Overkill yes, but I like the security in knowing its available.

For what? Home defense?

I keep a Para .45 with night sights in the nightstand. The wife is trained on how to use it and I keep it cocked 'n' locked for her when I'm travelling.

Personally I'm one of those who believe bigger, well placed holes are better than small holes. A .22 in the eye will kill intruders as dead as a .45. To be honest, it really boils down to the fact that a gun is only one part of home defense. Proper planning and a "security mindset" is really the most important tool you have.


If you're talking a one-size-fits-all laser gun for any situation, there isn't one. That .45 won't drop a deer at 200 yards. Then again a poorly-placed shot with ANY caliber would fail at the same task. ;)


If you're talking end of the world zombie cleansing, I'd grab one of my AK's if I had to choose just one. But that's just me. :? Then again the -90's big brother, the FAL, would be a good all-around choice as well.

If I had to chose from the two choices either a FA P90 or a FA 45acp the first thing would be what platform is the 45ACP being fired out of?

If its that Kriss thing, than I'd chose the P90.
If its a Tommy gun, Again I'd chose the P90.
If its a MAC-10, Yep, I'd pick the P90.

Now if it was a choice between the P90 and the HK UMP, that would be a hard one. Assuming that I also can get whatever ammo type I want. It would be a toss up for me.

On the other hand if my choice is between the PS90 and HK USC, without a dought the PS90. (with Civilian Rounds).

Hey I saw that KRISS thing at the last gun show (Full Auto one) I think it's interesting and I may buy the semi one thats coming out soon. They do a head to head shootout video " KRISS vs HK UMP on their web site. The HK UMP conversion SBR is a cool .45 semi too.

I'd say the p90, more rounds = keeps you in the fight longer, thats what counts to me

That kriss is a sandwich with some butter, butter, jam, butter, jam. Hey if you want one I have good news for ya, there is one more available out there cuz I'm not buying it.

I see zero advantages to the kriss. Anything you can do with it, you can do the same with a Glock 21, and at a much cheaper price. IMO.

i guess for me i would have to know weather or not my shots were going to hit body armor or not. if they were against soft flesh i think i might have to go with the UMP. body armor... P90 all the way.
