    Kel Tec PMR 30, 22 magnum semi-auto

    I was at a meeting out of town today and stopped by a couple of my favorite gun shops on the way home. I've bought from both and they're good shops, just not "local" so I have to be in that area to stop in. I looked at everything pretty close, fondled some stuff, and bought an extra 9 round short mag for my XD40sc and a mag pouch.

    The one guy said he had the new Kel Tec PMR 30 semi-auto .22 magnum that comes with two 30 round mags. I held it and man that thing is light. Looks and feels like a toy. I have to say, 30 round of .22 magnum is tempting. I've been looking for a .22lr semi-auto, so I'm gonna stick to my oriiginal caliber plan. Given the size of the gun, I'd be more inclined to carry a larger caliber. If looking for a plinker or target pistol, I'd prefer long rifle. Very nice concept as I believe the length of the round's case presents a challenge in the semi-auto platform. Too bad they couldn't develop one in a pocket gun size.

    Anyway, I snapped a pic with my phone to share since I know how much you guys like to see the latest and greatest stuff.

    I'd love to see one. If it is accurate and reliable, it would be a very useful pistol.

    It would have its uses. 22mag is a whole different animal. I bet it would be loud as heck!

    It definitely would have its uses. 30 rounds of a caliber like that would be handy to have in camp or whatnot.

    My dad's wife has a 22mag snubby. That thing sounds like a freaking cannon.

    This kel tec also takes 22 Long rifle also. it has a hybrid action

    "The PMR-30 operates on a unique hybrid blowback/locked-breech system. This operation system allows for the use of a wide variety of ammunition as it seamlessly adjusts between locked breach and blowback operation, depending on the pressure of the cartridge."

    Yep, $375. He didn't tell me you could use both magnum and long rifle. Man, now I'm going to have to drive back over there and buy it!!!!!

    We just got one in the shop where I work and it's number one on my I Want list. The trigger is great compared to other KT handguns, and the sights are neat fiber optics. It's .22mag only, the two have different case diameters and aren't compatible in the same chamber. I just wish they made an extended threaded barrel as an option.
