    Very disappointed in the one I had. No accuracy and totally unreliable. However it was when they first came years ago. Maybe things are better now?? Made a killing buying and selling during the last panic after the major failure. So was very happy with the pistol. Would I ever buy another one, HECK NO.

    I have heard negative things about Keltec.

    Only shot one once at the range. We probably ran 90 plus rounds and found it to be very accurate up to 50 yards and a nice reliable little fire breathing dragon of a firearm.

    The owner of the PMR30 tells me he still loves the gun and would buy it again.

    I own two different Kel-Tec's. Neither of them are that model. Bothe of mine are awesome. (RDB and Sub-2000)

    Shot one a couple of years ago. Friend brought a brand new one to a campout but left his ammo on the kitchen table. I had 2 boxes of CCI in the truck which we proceeded to expend. Accurate , fun little pistol but LOUD . had to change out foam ear plugs for ear muffs.
    I have a Keltec RDB which has run several thousand rounds with no problems. Shoots 55 and 62 grain federal into 4 to 6 inch groups, not good. Tried Magtech 77grain SMK and bingo MOA groups all day long as long as I do my part.

    I own one. You need to stick to either running CCI or Hornady ammo, but otherwise mine has worked reliably and accurate. All the other ammo makes that I have run lead to stoppages, especially Armscor ammo.

    It seems like lots of you have had good results. My concern (since we're Preppers and things have to last) has anyone fired enough rounds beyond the initial break-in period.

    I have a Kimber 3-inch 1911 and I cannot even imagine how many rounds went through that pistol. The frames rails are still snug and the orignal factory tool marks still show on these rails.

    I like my PMR30, but would not rely on it being a primary defense weapon.
