Varmints beware

With muzzle velocity near 1450fps with 40gr defensive ammunition and higher than that with 30gr varmint rounds, PMR30 shoots flat without much recoil. The lack of recoil is helpful considering the precarious perch a rise has on horseback.

Last summer, a friend was riding her pony and coyotes went after them both. She would have liked having something like this on hand, more for the high capacity. Those who have to protect sheep or other domestic animals may have to shoot at predators or varmints without dismounting also. Getting off the horse cuts down on the shooter’s visibility.

PS: This horse is gun-trained. Hearing protection for horses is recommended if high-volume firing is expected.

    Hearing protection for horses, exactly how does that work?

    Beautiful photo, by the way.

      Muffs or plugs, just like for people but larger.

      Watch some trotters run. Around the last 1/3-1/4 of the track, the jockey pulls a string to pop plugs out of the horses ears. The noise of the other horses makes him run faster. With the plugs in he can barely hear them.

    Horseback riding is not a precarious perch for a good rider.

    Traditional habit–spacegun. Nice contrast.

    Nice, and I keep seeing the adds, but where do you get one? I’ve been checking the gun shops here in Texas for months and at every store I’m told they are not available?

    Really, Kel-Tec makes me a little crazy. I own a P3AT and a PF-9 ( with the excellent Twisted Industries .22 conversion – highly recommend both product and company), but they tend to advertise vaporware. I’d buy a PMR30. And a Sub-2000. And a KSG. But they are simply NEVER available. I find myself wishing that Kel-Tec would spend less time developing new products and more time making sure their customers could acquire their existing products!

    Nice gun…just like it’s big brother rifle….and the KSG shotgun.
    Problem is they are all made out of that fancy new material
    “unobtainium”. You’re more likely to find an honest face in
    Washington than to find these available at any price at any
    gun store.
