    Sorry to bring up an old thread but I am looking to purchase a new shotgun and wanted something different from the norm. I see that these are now in the third generation and wonder how much they have improved? I can pick one up for about $675 and wonder if they are worth it or not?

    From what I've heard they have improved. That's Kel Tec products in general. They had a reputation for shit quality, and have been taking considerable steps to fix that. However decades of "Kel Tec makes shit" does not go away in 7 years.
    Honestly I'd say go for it. The ksg is probably one of the coolest guns you can own in NY.

    Kel Tecs are hard to get a bead on. The quality levels seem to be inconsistent.
    My last range trip I encountered two different people with Sub 2000s, ine claimed zero malfunctions in the few months he had it, the other said theirs was a jammomatic. Nevertheless of the various bulpup pump shotguns available the KSG design is the most mature. The only consensus I can glean is that the all seem to function reliably, whether that function is agreeable to you is up to you.

    I really like how compact the 12 is over the 25. Plus you don't need 25 bullets to kill a dear anyway ;)

    Being that it's a bullpup design, it's like having an SBR. 26 inches overall length compared to the 40 inches a Mossberg or Remington gives you. That's a lot easier to handle indoors.

    I liked mine but got rid of it after Safe. The old lady couldn't handle it reliably anyways so I got her a 9mm AR for the house.

    I've got a Gen 2 KSG, and it performs well. Definitely a great home defense firearm. I'll have to check out the Gen 3.

    Id like to beg to differ on this.

    Have you not seen some of the ny compliant stuff @Bullet Guy posts?

    Hell the Serbu and the like are cooler. More practical? No but way cooler! Just takes a bit more time to obtain one.

    Pick out what you want, tell B man, pay for it...do a little paperwork, fingerprinted, pay the ATF their share and wait.

    I live much farther from him than you. But it didnt take long for the paperwork or fingerprints

    Pistol permit. I sent copy to my CLEO but not for approval.

    I dropped about $2300 on the pair. But I just needed the breecher :D

    Im pretty sure even if free states,ATF did away with it. How accurate am I @Bullet Guy was

    I went there on very little sleep...the 24hrs I was there had maybe 4 hours of sleep and 6hrs of driving...so I mightve forgot something

    No. Odummer changed it. Now it is just a CLEO notify.

    And if the head bacon is a dick or you dont want him to know, i can send it to a DA.

    Edit to add: no fun stuff for mrs. “i never picked up my nygf lower......”

    I already wrote the CLEO for my 03 FFL. We'll be pen pals. <3

    WHY DO WE NOT KNOW THESE THINGS!?

    You and I need to have a FTF when you get back from the hookers and blow trip. :D
