Sudden Shortage of Kel-tec Pistols?
« on: April 12, 2009, 11:21:50 am »
Folks,
I was cruis'n the local and not so local gun shops and noted, in addition to the ammo shortage, a lack of Kel-tec pistols!  Ruger LCPs are not available either.

Anyone else noticed a shortage?  I'm in FL, the home of Kel-tec as well.

Who was thinking about a Ruger LCP...or alternative.

    I'm pretty sure Outbreak bought the last Kel-tec.

    I think the shortage is pretty much universal - except for at Basic Sports apparently. Gunbroker prices on any small handgun are inflated, as well as just about any semi-auto.
    If I saw a guy with a 60cu/ft safe filled to the brim with nothing but Jennings, Lorcins and Hi-Points, I'd look at the guy and say "Right on brother".

    Thanks, ridata. Yeah, in that thread I noted that I went to 4 FFL's (not including Academy, and the "gun store" in San Angelo that doesn't actually sell firearms) before I found a very well stocked shop that only had one 9mm Kel-tec. The place was lousy with PLR-16's, though.
