It is a great pistol (if you want to call it that :) Every weapon has a job that it does better than others, so you must look at the role you have for it, and realistically evaluate its capabilities. From experience I have found that Kel-Tec's quality control CAN be hit and miss. Some weapons get through that have issues, the ones that work seem to work well. Customer service has been good in my experience, so if you do have an issue, they are pretty good about fixing it. Also they do have a "LIMITED" lifetime warranty so even if you shoot out the barrel, or overheat and melt or crack the polymer frame, just send it in for repair. For such a lightweight, piston operated, long range pistol, I think it is a good option (depending on your intended use for it). People knock them for their polymer frames, but unless you intend to dump mag after mag, you prob will never have an issue with it. There is a lot of muzzle flash, and it is VERY VERY loud, so keep that in mind. Recoil is VERY manageable, and with a red-dot or magnification 100yd hits are no problem. Light-weight, very compact, and able to accept std AR15 mags = WINNER all day. Great survival / SHTF platform, though maybe not the best for home defense (simply because you could very well suffer hearing loss were you to fire it indoors without hearing protection). On the other hand because it is so loud, a warning shot could very well be enough to deter further engagement in a WROL type situation (I DO NOT exaggerate, it sounds like a small cannon and a concussive blast that is most def felt). So it def has it's strengths and weaknesses, but overall it is a great long range capable pistol. Your mileage may vary. Good Luck-
