Happy with price? Kinda - I probably paid $75-125 more than I would have 9 mos. ago, but given availability in current environment (Covid/Riots/Election), I was just happy to find one. Since I could pick up locally, I avoided transfer fees and shipping.

Where purchased:LGS NW Indiana
Model:9mm Glock 19 Black
When purchased: Jan/2019
Price paid: $296.60 OTD

It was a pure near panic impulse purchase and although I had never even previously handled one, I always wanted one and this was the ONLY one I ever found OTC and ONLY once for under $300 I could find ANYWHERE and the ONLY one the GS had in stock, and I watched a guy essentially commit to buying it but backed out before the back ground check. Once he gave it back and left I very briefly fondled her and whipped out the plastic and out the door and home we both went.

My reason for buying is I wanted as small easy to transport firearm I could take on vacation with me I could carry in a backpack or in a inconspicuous laptop case that offered a lot more offensive capability than my P320 and I was tired of dealing with all the hassles and impracticality of bringing along my 20" 870. It is essentially not possible to discreetly transport a 870 to and from your motel room and you can not carry it anywhere and must be left either in the vehicle or motel room, both defeets bringing it with and posed a legitimate risk of theft. The Kel-Tec Sub 2000 G2 was the most economical and functional alternative I could afford and solved 90%+ of my problems of transportability and firearm security.

Once I had her home and gave her a very through going over and cleaning, I initially had rather significant buyers remorse mostly due to the large degree of polymer construction, poor cheek weld and less than impressive sights I made the assumption I's be lucky to hit a 10" paper plate at 40 yards, and not much of anything smaller than a barn door past 50 yards.

Went to my private gun club a week later and I am happy to report I have NEVER been more wrong about any firearm in my life and were as equally happy to have been wrong. I brought factory 9mm ammo from Herters 119 fmj, red and white box Federal 119 & 124 fmj , Remington 119fmj, CCI 119fmj, Speer 119,Fiocchi 119fmj, Winchester NATO 9mm 124fmj and WW white box ammo 119 and 124 grain, 147 grain Browning ammo and some 119fmj stuff from Serbia I forget the makers name. Also some 124 grain Fed/HST and 124 Speer Gold Dot. Used 17 and 33 round Glock OEM mags.

I didn't burn through anywhere near all of it as I mixed a few rounds of every manufacturer in the mags best guess I put close to but less than 220-225 rounds through it and was just jaw dropping impressed with how well I shot it and and how easily I shot it well out to 75 yards. No problem whatsoever keeping all my hits in a 10" paper plate at 75 yards so I was happy as could be as that's definitely more than accurate enough to maintain MOBG out to 75 yards.

I'm just PO'd I can't find another one at a good enough price to buy it as they are currently selling for nearly the same as and entry level AR-15 of another P320.Might be better prices OTC in other states but none near me or on line that I have been able to find. And thank the good lord I was smart enough to buy all my Glock OEM mags when they were on sale in large quantities as I need not buy anymore.

You got a great deal. Out here in Vegas, they run close to $500 if you can find one. Glad you are happy with it. No, they are not a refined quality carbine but they just work. Enjoy.

Bought mine featureless, California style BS, for $565 includes $100 worth of ammo. Whoever designed the California featureless options to make it legal have never shot a rifle before. A hand grip fin, immovable stock and a difficult mag release, although overcome by Magpul technology.

My wife just paid with my money, the sticker price of $599 for ours in Virginia, about an hour south of DC. No other stores had them in stock when I would search a 100 mile radius or I found them cheaper online, but after all the shipping and FFL stuff it wasn't too big of a difference for me to care at the moment as I really wanted a 9mm carbine asap. Plus cash and carry from the store that did have them and wasn't too far, and I didn't have to talk her into getting it made me not care. I like instant gratification.

I am the same way about, if I want it, buy it, assuming I can afford it. Given that my wife just spent $22,000 renovating our main bathroom, I was on solid ground. Put a red dot scope on the upper picatinny rail with a 1 inch riser. Clears the stock sights completely. Can't fold the gun, but why would I if I want it for self defense. In California it has the fin structure on the hand grip, an immovable stock, and a special button for magazine release. The fin isn't a big deal since they provide a good thumb rest for your shooting hand. Bought the rubber pad for the operating handle. Talk about a pain to muscle it back to reload. Also bought a triangular front grip (vertical foregrips are a California no,no) which makes the gun solid against my shoulder. Also bought a rubberized butt rest. Now to go shoot. Assuming the ammo availability holds up. I don't think the guys in California know anything about "assault rifles". Idiots anyway. Have a good one. Jim

That is the same price as the Hampton Roads gun stores when they get one. Keltec has a $40 range on their MSRP $579 to $621. I guess it's by model or "features".

I guess the cost of materials, transportation and everything else forced them to increase the price. Plus supply and demand. It’s not like you can find them everywhere.
A couple of weeks ago Gunprime got in at least 10 of the G17 model and sold them for $499. I think maybe the supply is freeing up (fingers crossed).

I checked and they still have them for $499.00. I had a good buying experience with Gunprime for the only on-line purchase I have ever made for a firearm (my CMR30) two and a half years ago. I paid $20.00 shipping and $25.00 to my FFL. They still send me emails.

That is where I got mine. They are one of my local stores so it was easy. The sales person was not aware of the price drop (I think they had been $750). He had to look it up to be sure I was telling him the truth!

Where purchased: California, San Francisco Bay Area
Model: Glock 19 model in Black
When purchased: August 2021
Price paid: $550 +DROS and tax. $633 OTD

I found my Sub through GunBroker.
I ran into the Sub 2k while scrolling on YouTube one morning and once I saw it I had to have one! First time gun owner here @ 54 (Bought a 12ga for Doves @ 18, but sold cpl months later) I'm having a blast with it already have been to the range a cpl of times, and put 150 rounds thru it so far. :cool:

That stock rear peep sight is a joke! I took one look at that and... No. So I got my drill and opened it up to 5/32 before attempting my first shot with it. Worked well, but still a lot of work to "Get up all in there" for your sight picture, so I went with a Mcarbo rear notch sight and it's much better.

That seems like a great California price from what I've seen.
