It was a GOOD day yesterday. I picked up a Kel-Tec PLR-16 last Wednesday from a local gun shop and ordered every accessory available for it. This past Wednesday (yesterday), it was like Christmas had arrived. First, my fore end and soft case from K-T arrived via UPS. I hadn't even closed the door when the mailman pulled up and delivered the sling and shell case deflector I ordered from Advisary13 at the KTRange. I already have several 20rd AR mags that work perfectly, so the only thing I missed was a muzzle brake I ordered from Midway, otherwise it would have been a clean sweep! With luck it also will be here before the week is out.
Needless to say, I had a busy evening putting all the new goodies on my PLR. I even went ahead and installed my SureShot 2 laser/light combo on the grip's accessory rail and it's soooo nice.... :tongue: It's going to be even better when I get a chance to take it to the range this weekend (hopefully) to show it off and make a little noise. I wonder how many people are going to tell me I'm in the wrong area when I go to the "Pistol's Only" range? I may have to take the owners manual with me to prove it! I suppose I could always get a VERY LARGE raincoat and use as my primary CC weapon. I can only imagine the look on a BG's face if I pull the PLR out during a confrontation... talk about intimidation factor!:gah:
This brings me to my question. What exactly make a gun a pistol? Is it size, caliber, length of barrel, esthetics or what. Just compare the photo below of three of my different "pistols". My 1911 and P-3AT are obviously handguns, but the PLR is also considered a pistol, though you'd probably get a few arguments from many people. I'm just wondering where the line between long barreled pistol and short barreled rifle blurs and a gun can go either way.
