A somewhat bellicose Florida lawman, Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey, publicly announced his school resource officers will be more “tactical” in both uniform and equipment this upcoming school year to include carrying Kel-Tec SUB2000 carbines with them. A video released by Ivey’s office shows the folding carbines worn across deputies’ plate carriers in stowed condition. Ivey– quoting Sun Tzu no less– says the guns can be put into action much faster than an AR stowed in a car outside in a parking lot, which makes a certain kind of sense.
At just 3.5-pounds, the SUB2000 is probably the lightest PCC on the market that takes Glock mags and still has a 16.1-inch barrel. Plus, it cannot fire from the folded position, which makes it safe enough for Ivey’s school cops to still hug kids without a possible kapow.
