    piece!

    I've had one for about a year and like it quite a bit. Very fun indeed.
    At first I was a little leery of the sturdiness, being so plastic-y, but
    that is no longer a concern. Quite a bit of pop, and hi-cap.

    Play with a KelTec what? I've got a Sub2000 in 9mm. Very fun, very nice. Would have preferred it in .40 but all I ever saw was 9mm.

    Have a Grendel P12 and a Grendel P30, both made by the George Kellgren company that immediately preceeded his forming of KelTec. The P12 is actually my backup carry, and on the rare instance that I wore it in an OWB holster it was amusing to have a gun store employee spot it and ask how I liked my P10. Simple enough mistake but I was surprised and impressed to note that he HAD recognized it as a Grendel, just be viewing the exposed portion of the grip.

    The P30 is quite fun to shoot but very finicky when it comes to ammo. I find it really like Armscor 40 grain. Seems to feed and eject pretty well, but like any .22 rimfire it gets pretty dirty pretty fast. I usually keep a cleaning brush in the shooting bag just to be able to scrape off the worst of the residue in a lengthy shooting session. The Grendels aren't the only ones that gum up quick, I do the same when shooting any of my .22 autoloaders, Colt, Ruger, Marlin, all the autoloaders do the same thing.

    Anyway, like I said, the only Kel-Tec I have is the Sub2000 and it's a nice little camp/hiking gun. The folding design makes it easy to stow, it's "accurate enough" and with a rail on the bottom you can mount a laser (I did) or a tactical light. I can easily see the Sub2000/light combo as an effective campsite security combination and the fact that it accepts Glock magazines means that the number of available rounds should NOT ever be a concern. A 9mm carbine with a fully stocked 30 round magazine is an effective way of protecting one and one's own.

    Ahhh, the qwk package didn't include the entire post title. Seems you're talking about the PMR30. Heard it's fun. I have a P30, the Grendel predecessor to the PMR30. Enjoy it quite a bit. Fun little gun, but a little finicky when it comes to ammunition choice. Mine likes Armscor 40 grain, gives the action just what it needs to cycle reliably..

    My PMR30 is quite happy with CCI Maxi-Mag 40 grain.

    My wife inherited one. I did buy a loader from Amazon - that helps...

    It is a fun little piece, and shooting it toward the end of the
    day REALLY really shows the blast.
