    Would appreciate anyone’s comments/experience with it. Have opportunity to acquire at very, very reasonable price

    As a backup or backpack gun, maybe.
    As a primary, I’d pass.

    The SU16 is flimsy, the front sight easily knocked out of alignment, and the rear easily damaged.
    I have tuned several, still not my favorite to work on.

    But for the folding feature, and I still don’t like that the firearm is useless when folded unlike collapsible or folding stock wespons.

    The best word I can use is again, flimsy.

    Thanks so much Whirlibird. I have not used it, no nothing about but I was told it was light by someone else, which I like (due to old shoulder injury). Flimsy I do not need. Thanks! Saves me from wasting my time.

    tweva, I can’t say much about the KelTec su16 but I do own a KelTec 380 hand gun for some time now and have had no problems with it. it is very small so I can put it in my pants any were.

    Since you have a shoulder injury I would get a ruger 22lr rifle or for a little more you get what I own is a Sig522 which is also a 22lr. This is a link to what I own, http://www.sigsauer.com/CatalogProductDetails/sig522-swat.aspx

    Just going to echo what has been said, and add that it’d be a good backup rifle, or something you can hand to a friend if they don’t have a rifle. As your main go to though, I’d try to avoid it. But it the end it’ll still go bang if you treat it right.

    I thought $100 would be cheap for a ‘good’ gun – but majority rules! Thanks everyone.

    For $100, grab it.
    At that price, you just bought a truck/canoe gun that you don’t have to worry about losing.

    Shoulder injury, how bad, or better question how much can you hold?

    Buddy of mine just paid $700 for one of these down in Texas and felt that was a ‘good’ price.

    I’d buy it, worse case you can sell it on at a profit and invest that money in other gear…

    Buy it for $100.00, that is cheap!
