Hi, i saw one of these at the gunshow this weekend and I really like the way it feels. Also because I'm under 21, the ammo will be much easier to get a hold of compared to my 9mm. Basically Iv'e been looking at .22's for backpacking. I bought a remington 514 youth single shot to fill that role and so far I really enjoy it especially because it can shoot the .22 shorts. Of course, ruger then releases the 10-22 takedown that is just a little heavier than my 514 :banghead: Anyway walking around the show i saw that pmr-30 and :love: . It is SOOO light. and more powerful than LR or Short. Plus 30round mags. Basically just wanting some input or any ideas of similar weight backpacking guns of similar weight or power. My first ideal backpacking pistol I had in mind was a Glock 20/29 for bear protection. not that I'm expecting the pmr to fill that gap. I would carry alternative bear protection. (bells, mace and common sense IE tying up your food) ANY THOUGHTS?
