Shooting the Keltec Sub-2000 at the Woodland Park Range in NJ
Monday night was port meet up night for the women of the SAW club. Despite the rainy and cold weather, ten of us (and two junior SAW members) showed up at the Woodland Park Range to send some lead downrange. As always, we have a variety of firearms for the group to try out, including those suitable for beginners. Among the firearms we had available were a Ruger 22/45 Lite, a Glock 19, a Berretta 92FS, a Sig Sauer P226 Elite, a Colt 1911 and we rented a Keltec Sub -2000 in 9mm. We always welcome new shooters and last night was no exception. Sandy and I are always on hand to instruct and help women take their first shots.
We chose the Keltec because it is one of my favorite guns and I wanted to share it with the other ladies. The Keltec is a pistol caliber carbine, it is available in .40 S&W and 9mm. We were shooting the 9mm with Glock 19 magazines. The Sub-2000 is a lightweight carbine, not the most attractive gun (I once owned a Beretta CX4), but it is super fun and gets the job done. It is hard not to pick this gun up and love it.
We were shooting indoors at around 10-15 yards and the Sub-2000 is incredibly accurate and recoil is minimal (see Sandy’s target picture). We can’t speak to the ease of cleaning or take down as this was a rental gun – and unfortunately as we are in NJ, this gun had a fixed stock. No folders for us in the People’s Republic…

We look forward to trying another “gun of the month” when we get together on December 15th, along with our usual array of choices for the group.

Hope to see you there!
