    Thumbs up Their Here! Kel-Tec PMR-30 and Super Blackhawk .41 Magnum!

    The PMR-30 I ordered in April 2010 finally arrived. What a light gun. Total weight with 30 rounds of .22 WMR is under 20 ounces! Also got the Super Blackhawk Stainless in .41 magnum. I apologize for the poor picture quality taken on my kitchen table.

    Now I need a good holster for the PMR-30 since that is what I intend to use for open carry. Any ideas on a holster?

    Make one yourself with Kydex from http://www.knifekits.com/vcom/index.php?cPath=41_54_136 . There are many videos on www.youtube.com. I make all my own holsters for carry. It's quite easy and inexpensive. I could make one for you but I don't have that gun to use as a form. Also make sure to mount the light your planning on using on the gun before you make a holster for it, if you are intending on a light (I would). It would suck to make a holster, then add the light on and now it doesn't fit for you.

    Me too! I got all of them yesterday. Took me four hours to drive to all the dealers for the pick ups. Oh, no Hi-Point Carbine in .45ACP yet....coming soon to a store near you....and me!

    Thanks for that information. I didn't know it was so easy! I think I will do this for the PMR-30 until (if ever) a retention holster is available.

    Thanks again!

    Congrats on your purchase! I picked up a Sig Sauer P238 recently for a concealed carry option ... when we regain that right in Wisconsin.

    Nice. I like the Blackhawk. Just curious, why did you opt for the .41 over the .44?

    That is awesome! I want to make one for my IWI baby eagle compact because NO ONE makes a holster that I've ever found.

    Thumbs up .41 over .44?

    I've always preferred the .41 magnum over the .44 magnum. I got my first Blackhawk in .41 magnum in 1980 and still have it. It still shoots as it did when new. I DO like the .44 magnum as well and have quite a few Rugers in .44 magnum....but I still like the .41 more. Why? Just because. LOL.

    The reason I got this particular revolver is because it IS a Super Blackhawk Stainless in .41 magnum. I've never seen this offered before and am fairly certain Ruger has never made a Super Blackhawk in .41 magnum (BICBW).

    It also came with scope rings. I like it!

    The gun shop in Rhinelander had a Hi-Point Carbine in .45acp last fall, when I picked up my new Blackhawk in
    .45 Colt.... so they are out there. I haven't been in there since, but I think it probably sold quickly... there were two guys "fondling" it after I did. When I ordered my Blackhawk a few days earlier, it wasn't there at that time... it came in the same delivery as my Ruger.

    I was going to go back for it, but I found a Mossberg 935 at a good price elsewhere, and I bought it instead.

    Awesome. You might be right about it being the first SS Super Blackhawk in .41 (its a Davidsons exclusive isn't it?).

    Sweet collection! Is that a Marlin in .41 magnum? Where can I get a rifle like that!

    It is indeed an exclusive for Davidson's Gallery Of Guns. There is also a short barreled Super Blackhawk blued with gold rolled engraving on it that is supposedly a .41 magnum but when you click on "Details" it states it is a .44 magnum. I couldn't find that revolver available anywhere but I am sure another dealer can find it for me.

    When I picked up my guns the shop was supposedly going to get a Hi-Point carbine in .45 ACP but it had not arrived yet. I may just order it instead of waiting to catch one when it is available. The carbine seems a bit heavy but for under $300 who cares! LOL

    Thanks rcawdor57

    It is a Marlin 1894FG. Every once and a while they will have a run of them I bought mine 3-4 years ago. It is a fun little rifle to shoot.

    LOL! True, I am VERY patient! I ordered a .50 BMG almost three years ago and still don't have it. Sooner or later I will get it though.

    The PMR-30 I knew was going to take a while since Kel-Tec is notorious for slow delivery. Ah...but it was worth it! Now I have one. Now I need another one...or perhaps two!?

    Wow, I have to find one of those! Is it similar to the deal that Cabela's has with Marlin for the 1895 lever action shotgun in .410? If so, I will have to watch closely for the next available guns!

    just out of curiosity why did you chose a small caliber like the .22 for your carry firearm

    Talking PMR-30 For Carry....

    Quote Originally Posted by oliverclotheshoff View Post

    I have several pistols in various calibers for carry from the .22 rimfire through the .45 Colt but I normally wear my Glock 36 in .45 ACP.

    I think I will carry the PMR once I get a holster for it and the reason is simple to me: It weighs under 20 ounces with 30 rounds of .22WMR. The weight starts pulling on my side and after a while is annoying if not painful so the lighter the better.

    I think most of Oldschools guns were found while SCUBA diving in the Great Lakes. At least that's what he tells me...

    Just think of all those boating accidents and all those lost guns...now we know who has been finding them!

    Fred, looking forward to seeing that pair! I just happen to have ten C notes with your name on them waiting for you.
