So I made it over to the Kel-Tec booth at SHOT earlier today. Got to say "hi" to Toby (ktwm) briefly since he was surrounded by people demonstrating and breaking down the KSG to a bunch of impressed dealers. I have never been much of a shotgun enthusiast, recently inheriting a Remington 870 trap gun that I have never even taken to the range. It is the only shotty I own.
The KSG is pretty awesome, and a really interesting firearm. The pictures are available in the other thread, so I will try and go into what you can't see. The solid feel and quality of this weapon are on par with the RFB, which is its closest relative. Like the RFB, it has the steel top piece/cheek piece that protects the shooter in case of some sort of catastrophic failure. Beneath that is the ejection port hand the magazine selector switch. The forend is wide in the hand and there is no wobble when the action is closed, and none noticeable when cycling. A friend I met at the show, not a KT enthusiast (or hater), was suitably impressed enough to want one for home defense. He has a Benelli M4 right now but said he would rather have the KSG due to its small size and high capacity. He is a pistol guy for HD, as am I, but the KSG is the sort of new thing that makes one really think about that argument all over again.
Mr. K was not at the show, though I am told he will be there Wednesday. It looks like he has outdone himself again, and think he will sell the heck out of the KSG, provided he can't get it on dealer shelves in something like a reasonable amount of time. Bravo Kel-Tec!
