The author echoes some of my concerns about SBRs. I am not against them, but I am a rather tall lanky fellow with long arms. I like my space. I like the open mind of the author as well:
Everyone’s mileage may vary of course, but I wanted to throw this out there as it does seem to run a bit contrary to what is popular. I get asked all the time about whether it bothers me to run a full length carbine, so clearly it merits some discussion. What barrel length carbine do you run, and how does it work out for you?
Personally I run a middy 16" barrel. I really like that setup.
