When Sarah Palin had enough support to put them in the White House, he had to start sabotauging his campaign. He d...

Re: Kel-Tec recall for some SUB-2000's

PillHer has a 9mm Sub 2000. Not one of the recalls. She loves it. The 9mm out of the 16 inch barrel is far enough from your ears to make a surprising difference in noticeable sound. It is accurate. Hers is the Glock magazine model. They are a fun little pack away gun.
