I see that Kel-Tec has a new development to their SU-16 .223 rifle line up. There are two different barrel lengths available for it, 9 or 12in. I was thinking the 12 would be a pretty versitile choice for a patrol carbine. Of course, even their SU-16C model with the 16in barrel would fill the role nicely. All models can be folded in half for fairly easy storage. Check out the new model here

Or see the rest of their models on their home page. The MSRP's listed are typically much higher than an actual dealer order.

Dan, have you ever fired one?

I have the Sub-2000, 9mm in Glock config. The front sight is so Mickey-Mouse that I'm disgusted with it. Someone designed an AR15 type metal front sight assembly for ~$80 so that the carbine is usable.

I will likely sell this gun, and with no regrets (except for buying it in the 1st place).

I haven't tried an SU-16 out, but I've been wanting to get one. I have a Sub-2000 S&W 9mm. The front site is cheesy and I've heard of some being way off from the factory. Lifetime warranty though, and the factory fixes it no problem. I was lucky with mine, I just needed to give it about a half turn for windage adjustment, sighting it in for 100yards and it's dead nuts. I'm quite happy with it. I wish they would develop the Sub a little bit more like they are with the SU line. With the contact that I have had with them, they say they have no further plans to develop the Sub.
If you don't need yours to fold, knock off the sights and add a weaver rail to the top for scout mount red dot. I have a few plans to refine mine that I haven't gotten around to yet. All I've added so far is a trigger stop (no over travel) and a Hogue slip on.
