If I lived in a free state, I'd own a Beretta Cx4.

Or a CZ Scorpion.
In God we trust.

#2 got it right. A Kriss vector works great! Also takes Glock mags (at least some do) so mags are cheap and common.

Cx4 Storms are also really good!

I have only held them at my local GS, but Aero Survival Rifle is made in several major pistol calibers including 22lr, 9 mm, 10 mm, .357 sig, .40, and .45 acp. All of which use Glock magazines. I cannot speak to quality of these, but they are out there. I would love a 10 mm or 45 acp carbine myself. I have a CZ Scorpion Carbine in 9mm, wish they would make this available in other calibers

I saw a suppressed TC Contender rifle in a magazine a while back.

If you already reload and are tooled up for 45 ACP, sure why not.
Otherwise the "better" modern 9mm round is cheaper.

If I was looking at pistol round firing rifles, Rugers got a real nice one in 40. Not sure of the exact model, my friend has one though. I'll see if I can find his number and find out...

Imo, .22 long rifle isn't a pistol round. Just look at the name. It's a very small rifle round that's good for varmit and plinking, but does well in pistols too due to its size.

Also imo the only reason to have a 45acp is the 1911. Got one on order. Just a very cool gun with lots of military history. But not a cheap plinker, not the best for stopping power or ap ability.

Just Right Carbine, takedown version with the Glock mag option. The only negative thing I would even comment on is the stock trigger is gritty, heavy, and creepy. I polished my trigger and sear, tweeked the spring to lighten it just a bit and it's much better. But, it uses any AR15 trigger so always the option of getting a really good trigger if you want to spend the money. They are built like tanks, lots of options available, and mine has been very accurate and 100% reliable. Although mine is in 9mm, I see no reason why a .45ACP wouldn't give the same performance and reliability. You can also do full caliber conversions for a pretty darn reasonable price.
