I completely agree with this. Furthermore, those of you who believe that revolvers are infallible in this regard are somewhat misguided in your thinking. There are plenty of incidents where a revolver, upon discharging while in contact with the "target", has been completely disabled with bits of bone and gore getting into the cylinder and action. Furthermore, in many such cases, a semi-auto may be brought back into service with a standard malfunction clearance drill, whereas a revolver will likely require a much more extensive cleaning to return it to service.I do not own a keltec, but I believe that there is more than just the firearm malfunctioned. In such a close fight as this, there are more thing like shooting one handing and limp wristing the firearm. Will never know.
I agree Sarge74202. I've had my P 11 for years and never had a problem as long as I use kel tec mags. Non Kel Tec mags (S&W 59) has caused issues. Great little carry gun!Funny! Have had mine for going on 20 years. Never malfunctioned and it went thru the police academy course of almost 1500 rounds with no hickups. My guess is he could have limp wristed it and not provided enough resistance to function properly; it got tangled up in the clothing or press of bodies; or some of today's ammo - especially the practice ammo - is coming out not 100% to spec. We checked a batch of 380 ammo a couple of years ago and the rim width varied considerably. Didn't see what brand or style of cartridge that was used/ Did I miss that
Hasn't happened to me yet but when I practice firing from the pocket I'm using a hammerless SP 101.Revolvers are great but being able to run one reliably is sort of a dying art. In a close quarters fight like that loose clothing can get caught up in the rotating cylinder or caught in front of the hammer as easily as it could foul an auto. I may not like Kel Tec's handguns but anything is better than nothing and it would appear that it did the job.
