At the Gun Store: The Kel Tec Sub 2000 Generation 2 was released this year. The original was released in 2001 and was itself an update of the SUB 9.

At the Gun Store: The SD was introduced by Smith & Wesson in 2010. At that time it was a mid-tier between the entry level Sigma and top line M&P. It is available in both .40 S&W and 9mm Luger.

S&W also lowered the MSRP on the VE line compared to the original SD. Continue reading
