    Alright. I know next to nothing about ammunition but it does seem that a cartridge as long as the 22 mag would have problems being cycled reliably in a pistol. Is the 22 mag just a bad idea altogether. I like the idea of high capacity, accuracy and control. Kinda itchy to try one out.

    Got mine July 2010. First one in the state. My FFL has mostly former Special Ops and Bodyguards working--all knowledgeable and all well trained. One is a grand master.

    We opened the box and took it into the range. Everyone tried the PMR-30 and everyone loved it! Trigger pull is light. Accuracy was outstanding!

    Most impressive was the sound it makes--sounds so much bigger than a .22 Mag.

    And finally, like the FFL said, "if you don't stop the BG with the .22 Mag, you can always light him on fire" (with the impressive flame that shoots out of the barrel). And yes, I know it's a waste of energy, but the "wow" factor makes it a lot of fun! Still--you do have a 4+ inch barrel and that gets the speed up enough that you won't have a lot of trouble defending yourself if it comes to that.

    Everyone at the range had to come and see this impressive pistol. All the guys loved it. Very light--even loaded with 30 rounds.

    While .22 Mag might not be as deadly as larger calibers, 30 rounds of it is nothing to sneeze at. Just nice to have lots of firepower in something as light, as accurate, and as much fun as this pistol is. LOVE IT!

    Well, it is September, and I still don't see any in any gun stores around my part of Indiana. I hope Kel Tec gets whatever problems sorted out and gets these to the dealers soon. I would like to have one for a bedside gun at home.

    I think this would make a good home defense weapon. It is light, does not over-penetrate, and you can lay down 6 round bursts and do as much damage as a tap-tap-tap from a 9 millimeter. No recoil to deal with. Probably significant muzzle flash--these is a caliber designed for a rifle--so that might be an issue. I could even see it as a personal defense weapon (if anyone ever makes a holster for it) it only weighs 12 ounces empty so it would be an easy carry. There is the question about reliability. I had a High Standard derringer in .22 magnum. And no amount of gun smithing could get it to fire reliably--with just two rounds in the derringer that was a deciding factor for trading it in. But with 30 rounds in the magazine you are not impacted nearly as much. (And I think ammo manufacturing has improved since the late 1970s.)

    I for whatever reason contacted a dealer (B & H Gun Rack) near Kel Tec (only in Merritt Island) and asked if they had a list I could get on for a PMR30........NO! But I could leave my e-mail and they would e-mail if they got some in. I thought for a second and almost said no (what chance would I have) but then gave it to them, this was on 12/4/2011. On 12/7/2011 the e-mail arrived that they got 6 in, I called and as of 12/8/2011 it is enroute to it's new home..........absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!!! This is my 6th Kel Tec and the next will be the RMR30 and the next will be the KSG and the next and the next and the next......................I own SIGs (P220/P238) Kimber Ultra CarryII, Glock 30SF, Browning Medalist .22 (1964) and still think my Kel Tecs are one of the most reliable pistols around.

    I talked to B&H Gunrack on 12/2/2011 and sent them a prepaid order for a PMR30 on the same day and you talked to them on 12/4/2011 and on 12/8/2011 you are being sent a new PMR 30. My question to you is: Who in the hell are you?

    Cool Right place Right Time I guess

    Received my PMR30 about 4 days later. My brother in law also got one of them at the same time. Actually I was at the computer when the e-mail came through and in 30 minutes they were all gone. Seems like you got hosed.......I would be checking on that if I were you. Anyway I love it and wow what a pistol.

    by the way B&H stopped taking orders long before you stated you placed a pre-paid order, I would be calling them if I were you!!!!!!
