Using the search feature on the front page showed no results for this.  Has anyone seen/shot the new Keltec CP33 .22LR pistol?  I picked up a S&W Victory earlier this year or late last year and have not been  in the market for a new .22 since then, but this little pistol looks sweet.  Just watched a video of it on Hickok 45's  youtube channel and it looked awesome.  Comes standard with 33 round mags and has an add on for a 50 round capacity.  Has a threaded barrel and his ran flawlessly pretty much for the most part. I understand they are in short supply, of course, and not sure of the costs but supposedly under 350 or so.

We had one. They are allocated, and impossible to get. It balanced really well, and the guy that bought it absolutely loves it. Wholesale cost is north of $350. Our price was $459, and that wasn't much markup.

That is a funny looking pistol.  Looks like it would be fun to play with though.

I've got their . 22WMR rifle and pistol, and love them. If  they get more available and at a decent price, I may pick one up.  Would be nice to have one with a suppressor.

Link?  I've never seen a CP33 review by Hickok45 and haven't been able to find it via search.

Sorry, guys.  My mistake.  It was actually the review mentioned above 22plinkster.  I had been watching the Hickok45 youtube channel and it took me to 22plinksters.  Like they look or act at all the same, lol.

Whoa now fella! Them's fightin' words!

They all look and act the same? NOPE. NOPE. NOPE.

Hickock45 is the KING of utube! No one is in his league. A few just might aspire to reach his lofty heights...but they will never climb that mountain.

Ok...you are forgiven. Just don't let rash comments like that escape again. 

Yes...I'm feeling a bit wacky this morning.  lol

lol.  My sarcasm didnt show in my post!  They DONT look at all alike, which only serves to make me not understand how I did it.  I think 22plinksters range reminded me of Hickok45s and I had just been watching hickok45.  Thats my story and Im sticking to it, lol. But, it was a pretty good review anyway.

Yeah, I thought as much. lol But too good an opportunity for some fun this morning.

It was a good review. 22plinkster does sometimes get a bit wild and crazy in his testing, but usually is pretty thorough.

As for the CP33...I will definitely have to have one. It's just too cool not to.

But I'm still looking for a great low price on the Taurus TX22.

I had hoped to not have to buy any guns for a while, but this CP33 and that dang shorty 20 gauge have both caught my eye...

It definitely looks cool and I bet it handles very well, however, I have no interest at all in loading those magazines.  That would get old mighty quick.

Six months from now, a loader will appear for it.

      Something that I discovered recently was that, surprisingly despite the smaller size of my hands, the Glock 19 platform that I had carried religiously for nearly 20 years really wasn't the best platform for me.  Shocker!
      What I discovered was that the longer grip length of the Glock 17 not only put the grip's palm swell/hump in a location that fit my hand better, but I also benefited from using the the medium back strap as it gave me more surface area to get my support hand onto.  More support hand on the grip itself and not overlapping my dominant hand fingers means more actual contact with the gun and therefore better recoil management, less muzzle rise, and faster split times.
      My world had basically been turned on its ear.
      While I still wasn't a fan of the additional length of the 17 for IWB carry, especially with a compensator hanging off the end of it, the Glock model 45 suddenly made a heck of a lot more sense to me than it ever had previously.
      Consequently, I've started to part ways with most of my Glock 19s and have picked up two G45s as their replacement.  The added bonus of course is that the G45's slide is the same length as the G19's, so all of my holsters work just fine with them.
       
      This gun is my "pimped out" carry rig for when I'm feeling a little extra sassy and don't mind a little extra bulk on me.  I sent the slide off to DP Custom Works and had Doug mill it for an RMR and mill the front top of the slide with extra cocking serrations to make press-checks a little easier.  While he had the slide, he re-finished it in a tough black nitride, which looks fantastic and isn't as slick as the factory Gen 5 black nDLC.
      I added a ZEV Gen 5 curved trigger with their tuned ZEV Pro connector, ZEV suppressor height sights, a Crux Ordnance oversized mag release, a Silencerco threaded barrel, a Parker Mountain Machine comp, and hung one of my 1,000 lumen Surefire X300-UB lights off of it.
      The whole thing rides very easily in a Squared Away Customs "FOXTROT" outside the waistband holster or a Legacy Firearms Company light-bearing CRONUS inside the waistband holster.
       
      As for how it shoots, I've got the dot set for a 10-yard zero and stacking rounds in a cloverleaf within a 1-inch circle at that distance isn't a difficult task for me.
      ** Edited to Add: These photos were taken with an Agency trigger installed, before I swapped it out for the Zev curved trigger to keep things consistent across all of my Glocks **

      I saw someone mention an 80% revolver on another forum. Anyone ever heard of something that resembles This? Of course they had no links or detailed info on it.

      This is pretty cool. I don’t shoot competitively anymore, so I can’t justify the cost of one of these, but to me they are an excellent example of the shift in gun making.
      There is very little old school conventional “Gunsmithing” going on at Ed Brown. But there is a lot of high performance, high accuracy machining by quality Machinists, Programmers, and QA inspectors.
      I’ve spent my life in manufacturing. I’ve heard it all like “Things aren’t made as good as in the old days”, something must be right because “It is CNC machined” or something is special because it was “Designed in CAD”. I just smile when I see these kinds of statements.
      Truth is, we have far surpassed any that could be done quality wise in “the old days”. Unless someone is doing “One off” protype work or working in their garage; most everything is “CNC Machined”. And everything is “Designed in CAD”.
      Does that mean everything today is better than it was in the past? Absolutely not. These technologies still rely on the Machinists and the programmers (many times the same person) using them. CNC machines can make junk, and they can make it fast. These CNC machines only do what they programmer tells them to do. If he programs the part wrong; the machine will make it wrong. CNC machines are high drama. They require Machinists and Programmers that are on top of every little detail, every single minute. They require inspectors that are checking all critical dimensions, all the time.
      If you have high accuracy, quality machines, and you have the best Machinists and Programmers. You can make extremely accurate parts that don’t require any hand fitting; they fit together to extremely tight tolerances and work every time. In 1992 Ed Brown quit gunsmithing and went strictly design and manufacture. He retired at 65 and turned the business over to his family. With what he put in place; it can carry on.
      So, what does this mean to you? Well, it means you can buy a high-quality competition for gun for $2K instead of 10K. It also means if you need a replacement part, it can be shipped to you and dropped in without requiring a gunsmith.
      Sorry for the trip down memory lane, this isn't something new, but when I saw this; I saw a good example of a positive change with people involved that are dedicated to quality. I don’t own one of these guns, but I’d sure like to; I bet they are really something.
      Why doesn’t Smith & Wesson or Glock or anyone else do this? Because then they can’t sell their guns for $300-$400. But change is happening on a daily basis; someday they will.
