What is most impressive about this pistol is that it holds 30 rounds which, according to the article is among the top ammo capacity for pistols on the market.

The Kel-Tec PMR-30 blows every other gun out of the water in ammo capacity. The gun’s double-stack magazine holds thirty rounds of .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire (WMR) ammunition. That’s five times as many rounds as the typical revolver, more than four times as much as a M1911A1 handgun and 70 percent more ammunition than a Glock 17.

The 30 round capacity is impressive. However, the reader needs to note that the PMR-30  uses .22 caliber rounds.  So, based upon a 357 magnum the PMR 30 is underwhelming.  However, the lower caliber is suitable for individuals who want a weapon that doesn’t have much recoil, which makes this weapon suitable for either novice shooters or individuals who aren’t comfortable with guns; but, need a reliable self-defense tool.

A soft-shooting gun like the PMR-30 would generate less anxiety for someone afraid of gun recoil, making that person more confident in their shooting abilities—especially during high stress situations. Kel-Tec PMR-30: Most Deadly Handgun on Planet Earth? | The National Interest Blog

Overall, based on the review, the PMR 30  seems like a great weapon.  However, in a self-defense situation, you’ll likely not need 30 rounds.  So, you may want to invest in a higher caliber weapon
