I took my new Kel-Tec Sub 2000 (Glock 17 version) out to the range today. Iím happy to say that the gun was awesome. No failures of any kind through 100 rounds of Walmart/Winchester 100 round bulk pack. I used the regular 10 round mag and also a 17 and 33 round Glock magazine. This ammo is very dirty. I wasnít really trying for accuracy (this was more of a function test, (and it is only 15 degrees today with a very high wind chill) but the S2K seemed accurate enough. Not as accurate as my Hi-Point, but this may have been the result of my unfamiliarity with the Kel-Tec handling characteristics. It does feel a little shorter than the Hi-Point, and doesnít point as naturally. The trigger is not nearly as bad as some have reported. Itís a little springy, but consistent and feels pretty good in my opinion. Working the action to chamber a round was also much easier and natural feeling than I expected. Overall the KT Sub handled very well. As has been reported the S2K is not conducive to wearing ear muff protection. I tried using muffs at first, but had to switch to regular ear plugs to get a good sight picture. I didnít adjust my sights, but I am shooting consistently a little to the right. If the S2K continues to do this well, I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a handy little pistol caliber carbine. This is especially true for anyone using a handgun compatible with the sub as their primary HD gun. Not to mention the S2K just looks and feels pretty cool. If I had to choose between the Hi-Point and the Kel-Tec I would choose the Kel-Tec. I say this based on the design of the S2K, particularly the ability to use high quality hi-cap magazines and the ability to fold the carbine, not on function or handling.
