Default Kel-tec PMR 30

Okay so I've scoured the gun shops in my local area as well as online stores, and have yet to get my hands on one of these. Does anyone have one of these and could give me some info on their experience with this pistol?

ive seen one in a shop. it is the essence of super lightweight. construction is the essence of super shoddy and cheap. ive seen airsoft guns that have a more well built feel to them.

i was very interested in one till i ran across one. it just did not appear to be a gun that would last for a high round count without a lot of issues.

i could be wrong thats just my take on them based on very limited experience

A kid at the range I go to had one, I held it fully loaded and it is unbelievable how light it is. It does look like a cheap airsoft pistol... The kids father said they can not hit $#!% with it.

At my outdoor range a gentleman in the next lane had one. At 50' he stayed on paper (18" x 18") while I was well within 6" ring with my Mark III. One thing I noticed, it took him 5 or so minutes to load the 30 round magazine. He was about my age (mid 60's) and had a hard time overcoming the mag spring. The gun looks hot but I held it and it felt like a toy. I really don't see any advantage of .22Mag especially in this gun. IMO It's not very good for target shooting and (other than 30 round clip) not really a carry piece.

I think it is a cool concept. 30 rounds of 22 mag is cool in my book for a pistol. I have not seen one and it may be a piece of crap but if it where built well I would want one. I have had a couple of Kel Tecs and they are cheap and rough but both functioned well.
