Range report:

Took the gun apart last night to clean and oil the locking block and barrel. Disassembly was surprisingly challenging. I have owned something in the neck of the woods of 40 pistols, 35 rifles, and have been screwing around with mechanical stuff for 42+ years, and it took me a hot minute of noodling to disassemble and reassemble the handgun efficiently. I got it cleaned up, lubed and reassembled and repeated the process three times to test myself. I have a handle on it now.

I took 100 rounds of the CCI Gamepoint 40gr stuff and 50 rounds of the Hornady 45gr FTX to Shoot Indoors and loaded 30 rounds into one mag and 20 into another.

Firing the gun is… surprising. The trigger is very short, crisp and has a low weight of pull. The report and flash are…attention-getting. Recoil is not typical for a .22; the light weight of the gun and the greater powder in the cartridge over .22 LR results in a bit more jump in the hand.

Accuracy appears to be good - and possibly fantastic, when I get used to the handling of the weapon. I shot a tiny avatar of my target in the upper right hand corner of the target from ten yards and was rewarded with a smallish group - not bad for an older gentleman with presbyopia.

Function was much better than I could have hoped for, with three stoppages, all of which were caused by my clumsiness with the loading process. My Lula loader came in this afternoon after shooting and I tested it after I got back; if I’d had it I would have had 100% reliability today.

I have to state that I am delighted with my purchase. This gun is an amazing piece of technology and a joy to shoot. I can’t wait to put another 150 rounds through it!

I've tried to find Critical Defense .22WMR ammo locally for several months, but no luck. When I order ammo on line in the spring, I'll hopefully be able to find it.

I love the PMR-30, and loved it even more after I bought the mag loader. Beware of the heel mag release on the -30, I've had two mags disengage from the pistol in a IWB holster (made specifically for the gun) after sitting down. I lost one of them.

I have nothing against heel magazine releases in general, but this one is poorly located and too easy to activate. I carried a Bulgarian Mak for over a decade and never released/lost a mag.

What state do you live in. If close to Arkansas, I'll meet you and give you $200 so you can buy a heavy boat anchor.
Are you giving me for my PMR30 or are you just giving me $200,I'm in Ohio so it would cost more than that in Biden bandage fluid. I love the gun,wanted one when they came out in 2011,but then started reading about all the issues,then started reading they had fixed the issues so I purchased one and hated it ever since but love it also but putting another $300 into a $400 firearm🤔 I bout a car one time best car you could buy,just that to start it you had to pump the brakes 4 time then turn the heater on and off then hit the A/C open and close the passenger side window,then turn the ignition on but not to start,rotate the fan manually then start,best car ever 👍 👏 😀
