I bought a Gen II about a year ago for $250 before the hoopla. I got it just for a Sunday plinker but soon realized this thing is a little bit on the naughty side (i.e. bump fire) but, what a waste of money to shoot up a $10 bill like that. Seems like this would be even better if it was a .22LR but then again...I went to Wally Mart and the .22MAG and my ol' .280 Remington ammo was still available on the shelf....not one .22LR was though. It's light fully loaded (13oz) and I think the draw is to people doing the prepping thing due to the packable weight of it. I dunno...the wait list here in my area is too far out to know and in fact some dealers here aren't taking anymore names. I don't think it's the $1200 pistol I see them going for on some of the auction sights IMHO.

the problem wasnt that the gun was coming apart. it has key-holing issues.

and if anyone isnt sure what key-holing is, its when the bullet tumbles instead of going in a nice spiral spin. so, the real problem with the kel-tec pmr30 are barrel issues. kel-tec had to cease production of them for a while. so thats why you probably dont see very many of these.
