I'm pretty much over this gun. I think I have some of that In The Red powder around here somewhere...

Man, you did a lot of work and spent a lot of ammunition.

I'm sorry, bro. 3rd time's the charm? :)
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.

In all the years, guns, and rounds I've been shooting, I still haven't had that many failures of any kind. Collectively.

Same here. That one video has more failures than all my other guns added together. And that was after the SECOND repair...

Dude.... :facepalm: I think that definitely qualifies as an EPIC FAIL. I imagine the Benny Hill music, while funny, is masking a deep fiery rage :furious:

Any chance we'll get to see some gel tests in the future? I've always been interested to look at a side by side comparison between 5.7 & .22 magnum.

Wow! Anybody want a deal on the KelTec 32 that I hide in my car? I thought I wanted to play with their 223 pistol but now I will pass.

A) I already did it although it was a half effort on the .22wmr side, and
B) Yes, I plan to do it again

The original is in here (just click on the .22WMR box):

All these fail videos need to be attached to the comment section of that tool's comparison article between the Keltec and FsN over on CheaperThanDirt.

Man, I don't know what to say. I was looking on the keltec forums, and it's rare, but not too often like you.

wonder why keltec couldn't make it right...

What's the latest on the Keltec PMR 30? I personaly don't know much if anything about it, but a neighbor called me tonight and was inquiring.... He said that they were in short spply and going for cinsiderably higher than the MSR. I told him from what I read here that he might want to forgit about buying one. Comments would be appreciated.
Thanks.

My local gun store that discounts everything is selling them for well over MSRP so I would imagine that answers part 1.

As for the reliability, you can see my personal experience above. Of course this is just one person's experience and I simply may have a lemon...

I have actually heard a lot of people claiming to love theirs but I've also heard a few haters as well. It seems to be one or the other, nothing in between. I think it is hit or miss, you get a great one or a lemon.
