Such a weapon would make a great emergency kit item for downed airmen. More accurate than a standard pistol because of the stock and the 33 round magazine lets the firer stay in the fight longer. Really, bodyguards, SF, or "covert" agencies would probably find a lot of uses for such a compact weapon. Home defense is another great application, but this would be classified as a "Short Barreled Rifle" and be illegal in more than a handful of states. It would also require the purchaser to get a special tax stamp, and comply with all local laws. I sure would love one though!
