I picked up this Keltek PMR-30 today.
30 rounds of gold dot .22 mag. Shoots extremely accurate and the trigger is WAY better than I expected.
Mount a weapon light under it to become my new armadillo and varmint killer at home and at the farm.

What guns/gear did you get today?

I have wanted a PMR30 for a couple years now. Not sure why but I want one and I will eventually get one. But I have been extra broke lately and all $$ going to life and not love LOL

They were insanely priced for years. Now at MSRP and lower as production met demand.
One of the gun rags recently called it the deadliest hand gun in the world because of the round count and the new bullets made by Speer with Gold Dot HP’s designed to perform at pistol caliber velocities. Zero recoil helped in that decision as well I suspect.

Only if you don't miss, and come on man, it's Dennis we're talking about here. Better bring a spare mag.

So far very happy. In the first mag, I had one FTF.
I didn’t do a real thorough inspection right after it was bought because the person I bought it from has a stellar reputation for maintaining his firearms.
He cleaned this one up and left it unlubed before the sale so I could see it all. In my interest to shoot it asap, overlooked lubing it.
Now, that confession out of the way, after disassembly and a good lube, 200 rounds down the pipe with 100% reliability. Dang trigger is really good for a cheap pistol.
For the record, I also have a AMT .22 automag.
In .22 magnum as well. Nothing but problems with the recoil impulse of the .22 mag causing issues with feeding a short barreled action.
AMT did 4 or so versions with attempts to resolve the issue with the last being a stipple in the chamber to retard the recoil just long enough to generate pressure for the blow back action.
Nothing worked, and they folded.
What ever Keltek did on the PMR-30 works.
I’ll do some chrony velocity reports when I get home from the lake.

BTW, this is not my pistol thread.
It’s an open thread for what did our members get that is gun related today?
Be it gear or guns.

I got a couple more .22 mags for the AR and a new rifle bag.
Got 1k rounds of hollow point bullets to load for the 9mm 2 days ago.

I ordered a new gun belt, but don't have it yet.

I might also have bought an LCP II

I enrolled in the RO class that Cary put together for August!

I’ve been looking for a new gun the last few days so I can quit borrowing an open gun. (Long story)

I booked a hotel for USPSA Nationals, just need a flight out there now.

And I’m going to look at a holster today for the G19 I won in the BoomerShooter Contingency.

When you get your new holster, lets see a review.

I don't think you will be disappointed.  I shot my brothers Shadow 2 and it handled very well. First I thought it was maybe his ammo, but then I realized I used my mag I had ready for my Shadow.  I like to think I'll get one down the road sometime.

 

Back on topic: I did buy another 8" steel plate for practice (3 total now) that I'm waiting on and will be buying a new barrel for my 2011 next week since it decided to come unattached from the barrel lug, how exciting...

Build by Freedom gun works. All black 2011 with a red trigger. C-more red dot sight. FGW comp. 38 super comp calibre. The guy building it called it a "Johnny Cash" gun. I am excited to get my hands on it. Hopefully it will be done by early July.

With quitting my job and starting my own company this spring, gat purchases are on pause. But I did win at least one Glock, maybe a second his past weekend at Park City GSSF.

Most exciting purchase I’ve made the past couple weeks are a couple Vogel triggers, some extra fiber filament for my sights, and some Dawson Precision base pads. 🤷🏼‍♂️
