Just purchased a KelTec for the wife's birthday. She wanted something smaller for those time that the Bersa was too large and liked the feel of the KelTec. Well took it out to the range put 66 rounds thru it without any issues. I was pleasantly surprised by the recoil. After reading a lot about them, I was expecting a lot more difficulty with the recoil. Now I am not concerned about her shooting it. So now, she will not leave home without one or the other. We just need to get a few more rounds in it to break it in properly.
