My latest pistola! The Kel-Tec PMR-30 is a very slim and ultralight standard sized pistol with a capacity of 30+1 rounds of .22 magnum.

It's a lot of fun to shoot!

I was a bit skeptical of .22 WMR in a pistol, and admittedly the performance suffers compared to a rifle, but it's definitely more punchy than a .22 LR pistol. For most ammo, it's close to .22 LR from a rifle. There's little felt recoil and it's easy to stay on target for very fast follow-up shots. There is a decent muzzle flash, and it's loud for a rimfire.

30 rounds is an insane capacity in a standard sized pistol, and given the speed of the follow-up shots, this could be surprisingly effective as a self defense pistol, particularly for people with arthritis or some similar condition.

That's a Crimson Trace CMR-201 laser on the rail, for the ultimate point and click interface.

The PMR-30 fits most Glock 17 mags. It weighs 19 ounces with 30 rounds of ammo in the magazine.

The RMR-30 carbine version is expected in a few months. It'll have a collapsible stock, and will sort of be a poor man's HK MP7.

Nice Piece. I've been waiting for a while to get some in. Hope you didn't have to over pay. Ladies and Gentlemen, the most hard to get handgun in America.

I wanted to pay $300, but I paid $400, which stings, but not nearly as much as paying $500 on GunBroker.

I guess, if you wanna play, you gotta pay.

Any time Kel-Tec firearms are mentioned online, there is an inevitable bashing because they're unavailable at any reasonable price. It's the down side of market economics. When the supply doesn't meet demand, the price adjusts upward until the supply and demand equilibrium is restored.

Many gun manufacturers don't have much inventory lately and as gun sales ramp up again (it tracks elections in the US), the manufacturers have long lead time back orders. Kel-Tec never had inventories. They've always shipped stuff as fast as they could make it, and everything is always back ordered. It's a good problem to have as a manufacturer. It's not such a good problem for distributors, dealers, or customers.

Kel-Tec is slowly ramping up production, probably because of all of the complaints they get at SHOT Show and the calls and emails they receive. It's still not fast enough to catch up to the increasing demand. I think they're hoping not to fall farther behind the supply/demand curve.

keltec does not have many employees and they are always working hard to try to keep up but the demand for a low cost effective weapon is there and keltec fits the bill with the p seiries
