The Kel-Tec PMR-30 is a fun pistol to shoot and is also a great choice for home protection or concealed carry. Pro comments- same velocity as a 38 special with a third of the recoil. Magazine holds thirty cartridges. Great sights, weighs 13.6 ounces, 22magnum ammunition is inexpensive, and is very accurate. Cons- After twenty rounds, it is a pain to load the last ten rounds. I am looking at different speed loader reviews. I want to change my recommendation for home protection. Ted S. reminded me of the bright flash at night from the PMR30 and that the thirty shot magazine would not give you any advantage if you were temporarily blinded.
