    Technically, I didn't say *I* got it, I just said it's gone.

Into R&D on a new product, they have a number cruncher look at how many units they have to sell before they pay off the investment.
    So just for arguments sake lets say that number is 15, 000 units. And they have already sold 5k units. So when the government comes along and says they are going to try and make your product illegal before you can recoup the costs from your investment, what are yoi going to do? You increase the price to try and get to that point before your product can no longer be sold. Its that simple.
    Thanks for the lesson.

    Let me give you a quick lesson on the free market: Given a commodity that is not necessary for survival or the overall functioning of the market, they are free to price their product however they like using whatever metric they want. If I don't like their actions or their product, I'm free to rip on them and not buy one.

    I do own a manufacturing company, every time I prototype something out I take the risk that the item I make won't sell at the price point I set or that I may lose my investment. My company reputation, while not a tangible asset, has real value, and if my actions damage that reputation then my company value takes a hit. Personally, I would never do something like that which has the easily forseeable result in turning off a significant portion of my customers, especially for a company like KelTec which is not known for their high end product.

    I'm a shotgun guy. I love my saiga 12s, Vepr, 870 and 590. I did get to shoot the KSG and i thought it was kind of cool. I liked the fact that it's short. I wasn't a fan of switching tubes as it sort of sneaks up on you. The gun is LIGHT as hell...when you shoot it in the beginning it's great By the time you get down to the last few rounds it's punishing.

    15 rounds for the KSG Vs 20 rounds for a saiga 12 WIN SAIGA
    reloading 1 shell at a time VS Changing mags WIN SAIGA
    overal length... WIN KSG

    I think the Kushnapup stock makes the lengths really close - enough to call a tie?
