SHOT Show 2020 Video: KelTec P17 and SUB2000 CQB

KelTec had two new firearms of interest at Industry Day at the Range ahead of SHOT Show 2020, and Shooting Illustrated Associate Editor Kristen Walter had a chance to interview Chad Enos from KelTec about these new firearms. First up was the P17, a new 16-round .22 LR offering from the Cocoa, FL, based manufacturer. Designed as a mid-size pistol that new shooters and seasoned shooters alike could enjoy, the P17 has two additional features that really make it attractive: It ships with three magazines, and the MSRP is a whopping $199. That's a steal even at full price!

The second firearm is a line extension, the SUB2000 CQB. Recognizing the need for a suppressed home-defense carbine, KelTec designed the CQB as a single-stamp, integrally suppressed carbine that it expects will ship sometime late Q2/early Q3 of this year. CQB models will take Glock magazines and will have magazine-well inserts for an estimated 10 different magazine catches, meaning there is a pretty good chance that one will be available for whatever your preferred pistol magazine might be. 

On the range, the P17 ran quite well and proved to be a lot of fun to shoot. The CQB offers a significant sound reduction over non-suppressed, especially when paired with subsonic 9 mm ammunition.
