    I wouldn't do it. I have read that it will fire, but won't load the next round. But I still wouldn't do it.

    3 words Absolutely not advised,

    That applies equally to the .308 or the .380.:p

    Also, we call the 9mm long arm a "carbine", usually.;)

    Visual example:

    See how it is too far in? Not a good thing.
