Video Review: KelTec P15 Semi-Auto Pistol

With a 15+1 capacity, this slimmer-than-slim striker-fired handgun is perfect for invisible on-body concealed carry.

KelTec has been an industry leader in the concealed-carry market for quite some time; after all, its P380 set the standard for deep-concealment semi-auto pistols and remains a customer favorite to this day. The company's all-new P15 shares a lot of DNA with its predecessors, but with two striking (see what we did there?) differences. The first is that, unlike KelTec's other offerings, this is a striker-fired handgun. The second is that the P15 is one of the thinnest semi-automatic concealed carry guns ever made, with a total width of just .875"! This greatly reduces your chances of printing (e.g., accidentally showing the outline of your gun).

Even better, customers will not have to sacrifice ammunition capacity in exchange for size. The P15 is chambered in 9mm Luger, and (true to its name), its detachable box magazine holds 15 rounds. If you carry with one in the chamber, you're now at 16 rounds ... which is one fewer than most law-enforcement standard duty pistols. 

So how does it shoot? In this episode of NRA Gun of the Week, our friends at American Rifleman put the P15 through its paces, and provide in-depth coverage of this gun's form and function. The MSRP of the Kel-Tec P15 is strikingly (yes, we did it again) affordable at just $450;
