Not necessarily, there are several conceivable situations where having a powerful/concealed firearm would be advantageous
. The TN asshat with the Draco not withstanding, I have been running a Draco out of one of the 5.11 sling bags in 3 gun. I use it as my rifle. I can easily make hits on man sized steel @ 200 yards. I consistently place at the 50% mark in competitions. That's with me running iron sights and out of a bag with my "rifle" against AR's with optics.
See YouTube skillgarden, 423aaron, & shooterrus for some vids. See tac2.net for my 3gun match results. Look for Aaron H.
Do any of them not involve zombies or high risk EP work? Either way, the Draco is a pistol, so the point is moot.
IMO - If you're in a vehicle and you need to employ a long gun, having a CHP and needing to just rack the CH on the rifle that's got a loaded mag already in it is a way better option than compromising on the firearm itself. (i.e. getting an AR pistol, or as we sometimes call them "ARbortions" or "AIDS cannons") If things are that bad that you need the rifle, you're already dismounting from the vehicle and deciding not to just get out of there, so shit must have gotten really bad at this hypothetical point in time. Not sure about you, but if I'm about to rock out with a rifle-caliber firearm, concealability is not really high on my list of things that I'm worried about.
I hate hypotheticals.
