If that's a midlife crisis, what does it mean when you have five 9mm carbines including one with a giggle switch?

Nice collection.
Give them an inch and eventually they'll become a ruler.

Brugger & Thommet (B&T, bacon and tomato, no lettuce please) is a swiss company that has been manufacturing firearm parts (I think largely for HK) and eventually came to make their own guns. They've been around for at least a decade I think.  Below is what I'd like it to look like eventually. I also have the OEM folding stock but this feels sturdier, comfortable and makes sighting easy. 2nd photo is what it is for now and a few months down the road.

Very nice.  I used to think the P26 pistol looks awkward with the long "tail" aft of the pistol grip.  But with the arm brace, it looks correct.

Why did you choose the P26 vs. the APC9?

No particular reason. Heard only good things about B&T and since it's an entry point of sorts, I chose the less expensive one.

Nightstrike diaminhead on the P26 and something I had on hand, cut up to fit the Vector rail length.

Here is my response to the midlife crisis.  E B Aight.

BTW, nice weapons.  Fienstien, shumer and the gang would be terrified.
Thanks,
