Dang,,, That's a bargain.

Dang,,, That's a bargain.

According to the website it comes with three 16 round mags,,,
If the MSRP is $199.99 Buds will have them cheaper,,,
That's near a full box of .22 ammo worth of mags.

I've got some new gun money I've been sitting on for a long while,,,
And I have a friend graduating from university real soon,,,
This little shooter just might be my next purchase.

Thanks for posting this.

Aarond

I will have one in my safe the minute they are available to purchase!! Should be under $180 street price. For that price they are well worth the money!!!!!

Man, if that thing was .22WMR I'd be all over it. I know they have the PMR-30 but they are still kinda' pricey at $300+ and can be a bit scarce.

Looks like a nice little trail gun and/or squirrel hunting backup.

The Kel-Tec designers think outside the box.

Now, If I could just somehow get one.

I don't think they'll be available for a while. Kel-Tec has been known to advertise before the gun is really available. Sometimes a long time before it's available,

Nothing new about that...…..

The companies that do that are most likely trolling for potential customers (AND down payments) to justify actually making whatever. .


After Ruger introduced their Gold Label SxS, I prepaid for & ordered one - After I waited 3 years for it, I cancelled my order (thankfully my FFL refunded my $$$).

After EAA first introduced the Baikal SxS double rifle in .30-06 or .45-70, I prepaid for one of each chambering...…. and waited........and waited...……. and waited - throwing in the towel after 2 years.

Both the Rugel GL and the Baikals showed up in the marketplace about 3 years after I gave up on them - but I then refused to buy either (screw them).

We'll find out about the availability tomorrow,,,

We'll find out about the availability tomorrow,,,
I just called The Evil Pawn Shop Guy,,,
Told him to order me one in.

He's well aware of Kel Tec advertising way ahead of production,,,
He told me they did that with the 30 round .22 mag pistol.

But, if there is one to be had,,,
He'll find one for me.

I'll let you know what he finds out tomorrow.

I called Kel Tec,,,

I called Kel Tec,,,
Their guy on the phone has no sense of humor at all.

He told me that the pistols will start to ship in mid-November,,,
I chuckled and said, "So your website is just teasing us."

I think he took offense at that.

Anyways, now I'll be all anticipatory for 8-10 weeks,,,
I hate it when that happens to me.

It looks like the barrel is threaded which is nice since I have a suppressor. However, I don't see how a suppressor can fit since the threads only stick out about 1/8". I believe about 3/8" is needed to thread the suppressor.

Would have to be better than the P-32, or 3AT. They even have plastic action parts.

And in only 5 years they'll actually have some for sale at MSRP! [Based upon past performance w/ their new product announcements...]

I don't think so, all that plastic is a turn-off. Even the slide is plastic.
