    I really want one for myself also.

    I'll be pre-ordering them at SHOT if I can.

    Meh, I'm not going to use it for IPSC.

    I am thinking I will actually like taking this out plinking. I never go "plinking"

    that might be a nice toy. With a 30 round mag it could get expensive to shoot though!

    I picked up some 50 round boxes with ballistic tips like the .17 hmr rounds. Walmart $5 per box.

    Tell them at SHOT you need some with threaded barrels. Put me down for one!

    It looks like there is some kind of weird chamfer or flange at the end of that barrel though. I was thinking extended/threaded.

    I hope we see a 22lr version in the near future.

    I just noticed something I hadn't seen before. The sights aren't adjustable.

    I hadn't noticed this thread before, but this is interesting.

    As an owner of a .22 WMR rifle, finding a pistol like this would be a nice boon for I (common ammo FTW). Any idea on what this'll run for and general time frame for availability?

    I don't know if I'm over thinking this or not but I have a hard time understanding how a rimmed cartridge in a double stack configuration will feed out of a semi-auto. It looks like the magazine is pretty much straight. If Kel Tec found a way to overcome this problem, kudos to them.
