If you own and shoot that Coonan then you know exactly why it won't be made.
here is my Coonan: http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=495750
and i dont know why people dont make a carbine version
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.
all 26 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple. Wish my wife did as well...
