Cheaply made wannabe FN FiveSeven that is nearly impossible to find for a decent price, accessories are expensive, ammo is pretty much nonexistent and when it comes down to it... you're spending an exorbitant amount of money on a weapon that utilizes weaker ammunition than a .38 Special.

Pass.

Although I love the pic, I have to disagree, the .22mag is a great round, although expensive when compared to .22lr. And right now it can be tough to find without paying an inflated price. And while kaltec are cheap they have a great warranty, made in US and the one I own has never had a malfunction. With that being said, I like it...just wish it was in a smaller frame.

What do you mean by ammo is nonexistent? You are telling me in normal conditions .22mag is hard to come by?

I have seriously been considering a new pistol for ccw concealed etc.

Choosing a caliber has been driving me crazy, 9mm .40 45acp

22mag???

I sure like the weight and the round count on this thing,

But I have serious concern about the ability to stop a meth head DEAD in his tracks with a 22 mag fired through a short barrel.

Their will be huge muzzle flash and little gain over a regular 22.

I have a 22 mag rifle, I love the thing, not a PD round in my opinion.

Hand gun is cool if it has longevity, you will have to give us a report after a thousand rounds fired down the pipe.

I wanted high round count when I first started concealed carry. I got the Springfield xdm 9mm 19 round. That gun was pretty hard to conceal. I've since switched to a ruger lcp 380. Smaller round count. But it's so easy to conceal, and I just keep an extra mag in my other pocket.

To each his own about stopping power and caliber, personally I want my conceal carry to be .380 and above.

9mm, .40, .45, 10MM... It's all dependent on what you can handle the best and shoot most accurately.

Sure... a 9MM will be far less effective at stopping a meth head compared to a .500S&W but you'll also be able to get off five shots accurately from the 9mm for each round of .500 that leaves the barrel.

As for .22 Mag for carry use against two legged predators... Come on now. Even .380 will outperform that .22 Mag in that situation.

If you were only planning to use the PMR-30 for plinking/small game and you are willing to fork over that much cash for the pistol and deal with the frustration of finding the ammo at a decent price have at it! I'm sure it's a fun pistol to shoot.

For anything else you can spend far less money on something smaller and much more powerful that shoots much more readily available ammunition. This thing is nothing more than a gimmick and an answer to a question that nobody asked. Even the FN FiveSeven is a waste of money since it's illegal to purchase the ammunition it was designed to use.

Wrong forum. But out of curiosity, why is the five seven ammo illegal?

The FiveSeven is designed to use an armor piercing bullet that is illegal for civilians to own. The whole point of the pistol was to give counter terrorism teams a sidearm that will defeat body armor. Same goes for the P90.

Without that ammo it's pointless. There are a plethora of better weapons.
