Thanks for the help.
It's a solid weapon. I'm planing on an M-11 shortly. I have held and shot(1 mag) through the MPA 9. I am also disabled(service connected) there is a place in Az. That handles parts and such for MAC/MPA's and I will post the link when I find it. Also desert fox outfitters in Az. Carries the M-11 for $369.....

Supply and demand. They are missing out on a lot of business and when gun retailers charge over MSRP because they can none of that money goes back to Kel-Tec.

In short, it's a lost opportunity and lost revenue. I don't blame the gun stores, but they are making extra $$$ and Kel-Tec sees none of it.

I'm more about the win/win in business. Make more product, sell more product. Don't flood the market but if the retailers could sell more it would satisfy customers and they wouldn't pay above market prices. Everyone wins.

I agree! The PMR-30 is a great Gun,..But it's not worth 2.5 times it's retail! They Make a 30 cal Bullpup rifle,..some great 22's, and some nice small pistols(pf-9/p11, p3at, p-32) but you just can't find em anywhere.

orangello I guess if a person can hide one of those baby macs they can hide anything but you would need one of those "man bags"

DrFootball Where do you get 2 1/2x retail. Don't beleave what some other member said. Our lgs has never screwed the public and one they have or had had a week or so back for $335. Same way a 1year ago. Sound more like a gun shop issue. Ours always has some KT's in stock. Good mix of products. They don't stock the 223 rifles or that odd shotgun as they had one of each and they sat , and sat and sat ,and ,,,,, To many other choices in stock people to mess with those models. . But the rest of the KT pistols and lite rifles they tend to have keep some in stock.

Bad dealers are just that. Not shop there they will ether get there price right or go out of business. We have one in Ashville that I can't see how theystay it business . prices are high, high.

I would look for a revolver myself. The MPA box guns are fun to shoot but once you leave the range they are pretty useless. I have a 32 shot magazine for my Ruger P95. It shoots better than any box gun and has the same capacity. 32 rounds of 9mm ammo tames the recoil of the P95.

I also have a ruger blackhawk convertible. The 9mm cylinder in the weight and balance of the blackhawk is very easy to handle. The convertible is the first centerfire my niece ever shot at the age of 11. She is now a gun nut professional jockey. That tells you how tiny she was at 11. She can tack at 108. That means she weighs 108 with a saddle and a helmet.
