    Just couldn't resist, kel tec pmr 30. After some research decided to pull the trigger. 22wmr and the magazine holds 30 rounds. Total weight 13-16 oz. More after range testing.

    Let me know how it does. I've been intrigued by those for awhile now.

    Agreed. Let us know. That seems like a nice piece.

    Just got a new M&P Shield .380 EZ for the wife. She likes my Colt Mustang .380 but you can't find those anymore unless you get lucky and she can't have mine. So she shot the Kimber Micro, M&P Bodyguard, M&P Shield EZ and the Glock 42.

    The EZ was a no brainier for her. The ease to load and cycle plus the thumb safety. Great pistol for a woman in a purse.

    Took it to the ra nge, quite an interesting pistol put about 150 rounds through it, quite accurate, somewhat picky about ammo but it will improve with time. Having a 30 round magazine is a plus, I think it might make a handy ccw pistol all things considered.

    I don't think there are a lot of off the shelf options out there, maybe get a kydex maker to whip something up for it.

    I like kydex for daily carry (because I don't care if it gets messed up), but if you want to try leather, Rudy at Black Hills Leather https://blackhillsleather.com/ does good work.

    My day to day stuff (guns, holster, knife, etc. are all tough and functional but relatively inexpensive, and that paid off a couple weeks ago when I laid my Harley down and went skidding across the asphalt. Really glad I wasn't wearing any of my custom-made stuff.)

    Hope you're ok after the spill, I quit riding when blind people stopped using turn signals. And I got tired of kicking door panels.

    "Ride forever, no stopping never....";)
    I got it up and made it home with bent handlebars. 2K worth of damage according to the insurance adjuster and I got a new brain bucket out of it too.:D



    I will never stop riding; I'm planning a solo ride to Teotihuacan sometime in the next few months.

    Who cares about the Hog.....

    Did you jack up your carry or did the holster save it??

    LOL!

    Jacket I had on and my pants took most of it, the pants were tore up. Rig didn't hardly have a mark on it, and it's a Glock anyway..... even if you scrape the shit out of it, it ain't like it can get much uglier.
    I'm thinking of trying AIWB carry, that position tends to give your tools a lot of natural protection.

    That's how I was carrying when I got hit on my bike. The gun (Glock 23) didn't have a scratch on it, nor the holster (kydex IWB). My body was beat to shit and the bike was completely totaled, but the gun didn't come out. I wish I would have been conscious to see how the medics handled it. They cut all my clothes off, but the holstered gun ended up in the bag with all my other stuff.

    I was carrying at 3 o'clock..... and my spill was nothing compared to that time you got smashed.

    I'm a lefty, so I carry at about 10 o'clock IWB. No seat belt interference when I'm driving - just one of the benefits of being a southpaw!
