All I can say is that a while back I handled a KelTec. Can't remember the model.
This was during a "quest" for a pocket pistol.
I remember being totally unimpressed with the KelTec. It felt cheap, flimsy, poorly made, and I could see manufacturing flaws immediately. One example is small shavings of plastic dangling off the frame in places.
There's no way I could've justified buying it.
I know some people love 'em, and that's great. And I'm always looking for a bargain. But the KelTec never felt like a good piece of machinery to own. It did not scream out "trust me and rely on me" like a firearm should - at least not to me.
