What is the KelTec P50?
The KelTec P50 is a handgun chambered in 5.7x28mm. This description makes it sound basic, but it is anything but basic. It has what the manufacturer calls a “retro” appearance and is bulkier than traditional handguns. The P50 is a handgun you’re not likely to want to shoot one-handed, and you’re definitely going to want some trigger time with it.
Downing runs through some live fire with the P50, which he calls a “space gun” (understandably). This all has to start with loading the magazine, which is probably the gun’s most unique feature. It’s a 50-round FN PS90/P90 magazine and is loaded into the gun’s frame horizontally.
What’s the Purpose of the P50?
The first use for the P50 is to have fun plinking with it. It is, after all, a cool gun. In this caliber, it could be used to handgun hunt varmints and pests, and there are those who would probably consider using it for some form of home defense. Overall this is one of those guns that’s just fun to own and a joy to shoot, and there is nothing wrong with that.
YouTuber Nickademus77 mentioned some other simple purposes for the KelTec P50 in the comment section for this video, including:
- Home defense when the number of invaders and overpenetration are a concern.
- Secondary sidearm. ‘Perfect pair’ for the PS90/P90.
