KelTec PMR-30...
Does anyone have any opinion or shot one of these? It sure looks like an interesting pistol. Any comments on the 22WMR ammo they use?

We've sold a few in the shop. Every customer has come back and said they loved them.

Heard they are good guns but hard to find. For me, I never have liked anything keltec has made. It all looks pretty ugly.

It just looks like a fun gun. And you have to like the 30 rounds of 22WMR. It does look light, albeit with an ackward holding angle.

Of course I cannot remember seeing any 22WMR on the shelves in ages...

We get the WMR occasionally, in fact, i believe we have some now. Great round, rivals the 5.7 cartridge. In fact, the PMR has been called the "poor man's FN 5.7"

RE: KelTec PMR-30...
Ok, my view on the PMR30, having taken it to the range twice now...

Be careful loading the magazines. Cheap ammo dents the case and cause FTF's. I can tell you it seems to work great with some brands and awful with others. Don't buy any Sellior & Bellot or Privi-Partisan 22WMR. It loves Hornady and CCI 40 grain FMJ. Winchester had 1 FTE out of 200 rds.

Seems very accurate, and has great sights. 30 rounds is useful ONLY if you have QUALITY US made ammo. The gun is loud, and REALLY is FUN to shoot.

RE: KelTec PMR-30...
More observations. As I have now put 500+ rounds through this gun it is becoming less ammo sensitive. Surprisingly the Aquila works just fine too. The magazines have gotten much easier to load now. Still the Hornady ammo is the best. Extremely reliable with this ammo. The CCI has not had a single issue either. Sellior & Bellot seem to work OK if you only put 10-15 rounds in the magazines. It's a really fun gun to shoot, weighs almost nothing. I'd have to say with all my doubts, I will keep this gun. Just be aware it dislikes some ammo (Hornady and CCI make it very reliable).

It doesn't have any recoil to speak of for such a light pistol. Even with a full magazine, it feel like a toy. The ergonomics is good, better than I thought. My one dislike is the magazine release being European style (what were they thinking).

Hey Ken, would you kindly put a review on the actual gun on the site. Here's all 3. Cut and paste is just fine. Thanks.
