New From Kel-Tec: Gen2 Sub-2000 and CMR-30

Kel-Tec has made some pretty significant changes to its folding 9mm carbine, the SUB-2000, now releasing a Gen 2 version. Despite the additional features and upgrades, it’s apparently easier to manufacture and production is doubling. Also new and already beginning to ship out is the Kel-Tec CMR-30, the matching carbine to the PMR-30 pistol. I’m […]

New From Kel-Tec: Nothing You Will Ever Be Able To Buy

Kel Tec continues to introduce more and more new SKUs to its catalog without ever seeming to devote any resources to actually manufacturing the boatload of products they already claim to supply. The newest unicorn in their lineup is the RDB bullpup rifle, shown here in its steel-and-wood M43 variant. Feast your eyes on it […]

Long-Term Gun Test Update: Kel-Tec PF-9.

It’s been more than three years since I first reviewed Kel Tec’s diminutive and now somewhat infamous PF-9. My review from November of 2010 was quite favorable, and the PF-9 was my carry gun for the next year. It was a promising little gun once it got broken in, but things started to go wrong […]

New From Kel-Tec: Bigger Magazines

In what I’d like to think is a nicely-timed FU to Andrew Cuomo (but probably isn’t) Kel-Tec is showing off higher-capacity magazines for their PF-9, P-3AT and P-32 subcompacts. The new PF-9 mag shown above gives you an extra round of 9mm (up to 8+1) and lets you wrap an extra finger around the grip; […]

Range Report: Kel-Tec KSG Bullpup Shotgun

With new manufacturing technology and materials speeding weapons evolution, it’s no surprise that Kel-Tec took another look at the tactical shotgun. Kel-Tec’s KSG Bullpup shotgun stormed the SHOT show like the Red Army into Berlin, championing its 14-round capacity, diminutive configuration and radical ergonomics. Sounds great on paper, but what’s it like in real life? […]

Gun Review: Kel-Tec PF-9 (Take Two)

After reading Don Gammill, Jr’s PF-9 review, I was compelled to get my hands on a PF-9 for myself.  What was the source of this compulsion? I can’t say precisely, but I’m sure it had something to do with the considerable bulk of my other 9mm (a full-size Ruger P-95) and the marginal caliber of […]

Gun Review: Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm

The boss’s mouse gun malevolence notwithstanding, I’m still a fan of petite pistols and reserved revolvers. In fact, I was so impressed with Kel-Tec’s .380 P3AT that I just plunked down $239 of my own cabbage for one. Boy, has it been a dandy, reliably (and accurately) chomping its way through an inaugural 250 rounds […]

NY Rap Producer Reignites Hollow Point Bullet Kvetch

Kvetch is Yiddish for complaining. Actually, more like bitching and moaning. Whatever you call it, yesterday’s arrest of rapmeister Bryan Leach has the mainstream media highlighting the fact that he loaded his illegal Kel-Tec .380 with hollow-point bullets. Hollow point bullets! The Associated Press, for example, would like you to know that “Hollow-point bullets, which […]

Gun Review: Kel-Tec P3AT .380

Kel-Tec’s P3AT is one of the most popular pocket pistols pistol purveyors purvey. And no wonder. It’s small, light and cheap. And . . . there you have it. For most buyers, it’s enough; size, weight and price are the only three boxes a mouse gun needs to check. Especially one chambered in the doyenne […]
