I do not own one, and I was interested in this one because overall keltec has had decent reviews on their products.
it is somewhat decently priced and easy to modify for a stow and go protection piece in my opinion.
The KT PLR and SU series rifles can
be a good deal, depending on what you want.
I emphasize 'can'
because there are a few caveats that go along with their ownership and use.
PRO: Both the PLR and SU-16 are very light, and there are no other semi-automatic, detachable-magazine-fed .223 or 5.56x45mm rifles or pistols in the same weight category that I am aware of, and they seem to be relatively about as accurate.
CON: The PLR and SU-16 are not designed for rapid or sustained fire.
Please understand that when I say they 'are not designed' for rapid fire it is because rapid and sustained fire are specifically mentioned by the literature available from the manufacturer as things you should not do with your PLR and SU-16
Lightweight plastic and lightweight metallic composites make for a very portable package, but also means low heat tolerances and frequent 'cooling off' periods.
