I'm not sure if it's a loophole in the law or if the folks in El Paso county just don't give a ****, but if the magazine is disassembled it can be sold as a repair kit. I'm pretty sure that that is the rule up there in your neck of the woods too.

The weather is supposed to be acceptable on Sunday, so there is a decent chance that I'll be hitting the range with the PMR-30, the .357 Vaquero, the 22 LR/Mag Single Six, and the Henry (which I have not shot yet either!). I'm thinking of packing a lunch and a thermos of coffee and making a day of it!

Hmm, I still have about 30 rounds of .280 Rem, so maybe the No. 1 will tag along

What is the ideal or recommend brand of ammo to use with it?

Well, the first iteration of the PMR-30 was pretty finicky, from what I understand, but the later model has cleaned up it's act and is (reportedly) ammo neutral. I had some CCI Maxi-Mags laying around that I loaded up the magazines with. I'm just hoping the darn thing shoots with few, if any FTF or FTE.

Let us know how it shoots and if it's reliable. I've seen a few horror stories online....

Yeah, I'm starting to see those kits up here, too. Brilliant idea to get around a stupid law.

Lonnie.....
How did the PMR - 30 do at the range ?
I have always thought that was a neat design....30 rounds of 22 magnum is a lot of firepower ....but hesitant to buy one if they don't feed fire and eject with reasonable accuracy. Waiting for ,,,,the rest of the story !

My PMR 30 has been in my possession for almost a year now. When I first got it I could only get about 27 rounds in one mag, and barely got 30 in the other. I keep both loaded all of the time, and re-filling one to 30 is not a problem. I have not had one single jam or malfunction since I got it. I read the instructions that mentioned avoiding certain ammo due to some reported issues with them. I ignored it. Mine shoots everything that I feed it, and it is a hungry little bugger.

They are a blast to shoot, and it's really neat to fire it right at dusk. Huge fireballs at the muzzle, with most ammo, some better than others. I do keep one round of CCI shotshells in the chamber this time of year for creepy crawlers. You just have to keep in mind that they are not powerful enough to fully cycle the slide, so you have to do it manually. I sometimes have the mag topped off with another one, and have knocked a squirrel from a tree with it (within15'-20'), but you will have to quickly chamber a round for the killing shot.

I didn't get mine that cheap however. I passed on them when they were more scarce and bringing $700-and up. I think I paid $460 OTD, and was (still am) happy to have it.

I read the title and knew you bought a kel-tec. My dad says how he wants one of these. I just keep telling him who makes it.
