Incendiary Image of the Day: The Truth is Out There Edition

So that’s where they’re all going! Anyone who’s ever wanted to check out — let alone buy — any of Kel Tec’s more interesting efforts has had a helluva time actually finding one. I only got my Sub-2000 when its original owner sold it to a local gun shop minutes before I happened to stroll in. The speculation’s always been that the Cocoa, FL gun maker is a lot better at coming up with desirable designs than actually turning them out in sufficient quantity. But firearms photomeister Oleg Volk reveals the truth about where all those SU16s and RFBs have really been going — the undead have ’em. Seems Kel Tec is the gunco of choice for ten foot tall brain munchers who are tired of being outrun by their still-cephalic prey. Want a PMR 30? Go kill yourself a zombie.

    What do you like and dislike the most about your sub2000?

    1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

      I really like my SUB-2000 in .40 S&W. Here is a list of my likes:
      (1) It is short enough to be highly maneuverable.
      (2) It folds in half and fits in a standard notebook computer bag.
      (3) Factory sights get the job done between 0 and 100 yards.
      (4) It never seems to jam.
      (5) It is noticeably quieter than a .40 S&W pistol with a 4 inch barrel.
      (6) It accepts 10, 15, 22, or 30 round Glock magazines.
      (7) It is really reliable.
      (8) Green laser under the barrel
      (9) lightweight AND very low recoil
      (10) .357 Magnum ballistics!!! (The 16 inch barrel allows the powder to burn more completely which increases muzzle velocity.)
      (11) Affordable!!! I paid $340 for mine and my dad just purchased two for $304 each.

      What I don’t like:
      (1) Wait time of several months to get one.

      I personally believe these are the perfect home defense firearm. They are the best overall compromise off all factors for home defense: maneuverability, ballistics, report (noise), capacity, recoil, and accuracy.

      I pretty much agree. On a side note, mine fits in the laptop section of my old college bookbag. Very portable.

        Mine is in the Glock 17 grip, btw. Major complaint: 16.1 in. barrel is too short for a suppressor with the front sight post/folding lock. Needs to be about 16.6.

      uncommon sense and Kelly in GA,

      Thank you both for your replies. I think I will place the Sub2000 on my Gun Wish List. Can you use 9mm +P ammo in the Sub2000?

      They also make a 357 Sig conversion kit for them if you’re in to that sort of thing. I dont think its listed on their website, but if you call them up you can get one converted. I know it has a special tungsten bolt.

    Great photo, the color is sunning with the fall trees in the back round and that orange goatee…. This zombie is flood ready…. I sure hope his shooten eye is zombified

    They can always be had. My RFB’s serial is in the upper 200s (out of presently 3,300), and I got it new for $15 over the MSRP on gun broker. You may not find them on a store shelf, but they presently go for less than MSRP on gun broker. The demand for the KSG though has me baffeled, they still seem to be going for 40+% over the MSRP on gun broker.

    the only keltec design i have any interest in is the su16ca. And as long as I have my SKS i just can’t work up that much desire for it.

    I see Oleg made it to Rob Zombies BBQ in the park this weekend yippee!!!

  6. avatar RIGHT! says:

    My friend has SU16’s for HD, I sighted them in for him, they shoot far better than one would expect, even with a plastic trigger!

    1. avatar jwm says:

      correct me if i’m wrong here, but don’t glocks have plastic triggers also?

      1. avatar matt says:

        most plastic guns have plastic triggers. the rest of the FCG in a SU16 is steel
