24/7 Wall St. ranked 25 high velocity handguns today, and the PMR-30 comes in at number 8.

At least they had the good taste to include a Kel-Tec handgun (my personal favorite). I have three other guns on that list, but the PMR-30 will remain my favorite shooter.

the first one is all you need to know:
Velocity: 600 ft/s
this is like a 45 acp on a bad day. What are they calling high-velocity here, better than a paintball? This is on par with calling semi auto rifles as high powered -- like the 223 or AK I mean -- when they shoot ammo designed to be low recoil in a full auto used by a 10 year old boy. There are far more than 30 pistols that get close to 1000 fps.
a basic 22 mag revolver with 5 inches for example -- is it time for this old site link again?

BBTI - Ballistics by the Inch :: .44 Mag Results or how about that desert eagle?

this doesn't even consider any specialty loading (eg my light 380s in hot 9mm and 357 loadouts).

My point in posting this was not to promote the validity of the article, but to point out my joy of having seen a list of any kind mention Kel-Tec. Most reviewers that make a list act like Kel-Tec doesn't even exist.

One of them is a toy gun.

Recommended ammo: 9mm Really? Are they saying that 9mm is recommended for a 9mm gun but other calibers are optional?

Do we really believe that a Glock 19 has more velocity than a Glock 17?

As I said, I'm not saying this was well written or accurate, I'm just a fan-boy (or fan-oldman) and like to see KT placed with other brands for a change.

Funny, I remember my Ruger Security Six .357 magnum revolver has more than most if not the most velocity than anything on that list using std 357 ammo and I reloaded that thing most of the time max load for velocity around 1450 FPS out of a 6 inch barrel.. Useless list except to look at pretty guns! lol
