Sometimes you see a new gun and it is a must have. I saw such a firearm at the Kel-Tec booth at 2008 SHOT Show. It was the PLR 22. A politically incorrect plinker with a 27 round magazine. I wasted no time and as I work for an licensed dealer I called our distributor from the floor of SHOT Show and Informed him of what as coming down the pike and asked to be placed on the waiting list.
Well, last week it came in. I filled out a 4473, which if you accidentally type it in with the shift key depressed is a $$&#. Monday I picked the plinker up. I shot it a little on Monday evening and found that it did not function at all with Remington Golden Bullets Bulk Pack From Wally World. It seemed to function pretty well with Federal Bulk pack. The firearm is accurate, fun and as it comes threaded 1/2 by 28. I am sure that some of those Gun-lovers in states that allow the polite shooting of firearms will take advantage of this bargain and pair it off with a nice sound suppressor.
While the PLR 22 does not automatically stay locked back on the last round, it has a very usable button located on the bottom just behind the magazine.
The Kel-Tec PLR 22 disassembles rather easily using any small diameter tool that can push out a single pin. The rest of disassembly and reassembly require no tools at all. I cannot wait for the rifle version to arrive. As for videos of the gun in action, I let my lovely bride, Tracy, aka Pretty Pistolera, shoot the Kel-Tec PLR 22.
Until next time keep your muzzles pointed in a safe direction.
