Anyone have or shot a Keltec P17?

I was beginning to think nobody had shot one. I certainly understand issues happen with firearms, try to read reviews before plunking down the $$. My Beretta APX didn't get to the 15th round when it blew the extractor off and into my index knuckle. I have put about 500 rounds threw it after getting it back, another 500 and I will trust it. I always say if it is made with human hands it is not a matter of if, but when it will break. Keep us up to date when you get it back.

I have one and love it.  I shot about 1000 rounds without cleaning to see how far I could get without problems.  It was not flawless but did real well.  I finally cleaned it after roughly 1000 rounds.  Best 22 LR handgun going for the money IMO.

For me, the Taurus TX22 wins the best 22LR for the money. 

Fair.  But for $199 with three mags the P17 is a smoking deal and I'm a big Taurus fan. 

I found a TX22 yesterday for $250 and didn't get it but may pick it up soon if it's not gone when I go back.  The high dollar one ($400 something) doesn't interest me.

With today gun prices, I don't think you'll easily find the P17 for MSRP or below.  This is the best price ($ 349 + $20- shipping) I've seen today:


For the same money, I can pickup the TX22 from PSA:


Now if I could only find the TX22 Competition Conversion Kit in stock anywhere!

I bought one recently and have put over 300 rounds through it and really love this little gun.  TBH I did not expect to like this gun so much.  I bought it just as a little gun to take new shooters to the range and not have them be freaked out about heavy guns or harsh recoil.  To my surprise I really like this gun a lot.  For me it is very accurate and so far 100% reliable.  I am planning to buy another as I have a disorder that compels me to get 2 (or more) of any gun that I like (common problem in the gun community).
