Kel Tec

Stopped al LGS yesterday.  He had that bad-boy in stock.

DAMN  .........  I was seriously impressed.  Two six round tubes, plus one in the pipe.  Yeah buddy.

Owner says "Jim, I ordered that especially for you buddy"  He says that about everything he gets in.

Wicked weapon for sure $799.  Probably not.  My wife had a fit when I bought the Tommy Gun, but that will probably turn out to be a "happy" purchase.

Stopped in there maybe 2 years ago, because they are one of the few places that sell reloading stuff.

I found them to be a bit "unfriendly", so I never went back.

Don't get me wrong here.  I don't like to bad-mouth a place that I have actually not done business with.  This was just my impression of the place.

In all fairness, Lone Wolf (where I buy most of my guns), at first came across a bit cold also.  I have found through the years that this is not unusual in gun shops, I think it's the nature of the business.

Andre, and the other guys at Lone Wolf pretty much know me now.  They know I'm not a "looky-loo".  I actually BUY stuff.  I probably had a dozen guns transferred to Lone Wolf that I purchased from Bud's Gun Shop (A habit I developed when I lived in Florida).  Then I actually started paying attention to their prices, and decided to fund a local business.  It's the right thing to do.  Bought probably 10 guns from them, and took my son there to buy his first handgun.

Amazing deal on an RDB or a KSG? Customized Sub 2000?

I've seen two KSGs in the wild since they were introduced...I have never seen an RFB, the rifle I lusted for YEARS...but vaporware, like so many Keltec products. They make good stuff, just not enough of them!

I think I've seen it at Bear Arms in Scottsdale.

I love the gun, but I was hoping for one in 20ga.

That is bad-ass

A reasonable long distance rifle that you can hide under your jacket and you can use it for room clearing !

I own a KSG. Fun to shoot, but requires that you train for the gun since it's an ergonomic nightmare to load the tubes quickly. I have a few LEO friends that have shot it and they didn't like it.

I totally agree. I sold mine because they weren't user friendly as my 870s. Still, 14+1 of .12ga isn't too shabby for home defense applications.

IMHO once you have expended 14 shotgun rounds (civilian / home setting - not LEO) you drop the gun, damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead and charge the assailant with a knife between your teeth screaming BAAAAAANZAI!

All bets are off and it's two round trip tickets to crazy time.
The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.

Once we as a society lose that affinity we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.

Or Aguila Mini's and make it 24+1.

That is cool beans but wouldn't hanging stuff off the rail impede the pump action. Guess you could just not put anything on there but then you might need gloves or develop new calluses.

I think if the crazies ever hit me and I thought about giving up my tried and true 870 it might be for the saiga 12. Something about a 30 rd drum appeals to me  :-P

Aguila mini shells are getting very hard to find, especially the the buck shot. So apparently they are very popular, even though they are pricey. As my reloading skills grow, I plan on loading my own in the future. I agree with many who say a shotgun is the most devastating firearm we can have on hand to defend with as civilians. ;) I also know that an adaptor is available for the mossberg 590/500 - Maverick 88 lines specific to the Aguila mini shells to aid in proper function.
