    # 2 Kel Tec

    Picked up 2nd P-32 1 box of Winchester down range not missed a beat.

    So at this time I have what at least for now are 2 nice little BUG ,for me and main SD for my soon X
    I did nothing to these pistols Locked slide back and sure barrel clear ran some break free down slide rails .oiled top of barrell hood . Loaded up and went shooting No Fluff and Buff Feed ramp on both pistols smooth and polished. These are 2nd Gen guns. They appear better made at least to me than first Gen.
    These will be carried more than shot. So I not worried if does't go 20,000 rounds .

    Tomcat Walther PPK/S & the two Kel-Tecs :-D
    They sure are flat & light.
    I used to have a Grendel P-10 in .380 the Great Granfather of the Kel-Tecs

    One P-32 went to wife She loves gun First time she ever asked directions on how to break one down for cleaning. Then she cleaned it.

    Note I have in stalled 13lb recoil spring from wolff springs. Un less you shooting Corbon or some other hot ammo use the 11lb spring . 13 reduced recoil some with Corbon .With regular ammo.and 13lb spring pistol runs slow motion and barely ejects empty.. Factory is 9lb.
    380 owners can use the 13lb in theirs might help them with their recoil and save some wear and tear on pistol.

    I looked at these this weekend at the gun show - man they are tiny and light. I was going to eventually ask if anyone had a good opinion of them. I am tempted to maybe get one one of these days.

    The Kel-Tecs are great guns. They did have problems with the extractor on some of the first gen guns but the new ones I have shot have been flawless. If you do get a hold of a first gen, just send it to Kel-Tec and they will replace the extractor and polish the feed ramp if you have problems. My Dad had to do this. Great fast service. If I was purchasing one, which I will soon do, I would get the P3AT (.380). There is not much difference in the size of the weapon from .380 to .32 so you might as well get more firepower. There is a larger difference in the size from .380 to 9mm. If you get the .380 you can just put it in your pocket and no one will notice, but I would recommend the belt clip. It attaches straight to the gun and it can conceal it just about anywhere. I would definitely recommend these guns. I have shot five different ones with no problems except for the one that Kel-Tec took care of. I am sure there are plenty of people who disagree but this is just my opinion.

    I bought the Kel-Tec P32 from a friend of mine who bought it new and shot it only once after getting his CWP. Just happened to be in the right place at the right time. Gave $100 for the pistol and the remaining 19 rounds of a 20rd. box of Federal JHP. Another $20 got me the brand new ankle holster he had. Since I got my CWP, this has been my daily carry and rides in my front pocket in an Elite Survival Systems pocket holster, loaded with Winchster Silvertip HP. I also have a Don Hume leather pocket holster, but I find that the Elite keeps the gun in the upright position better, and is more comfortable. 8)

    The Keltek 380 seems to want to jump out of my hand. I guess I wasn't holding it firm enough. Or maybe that's typical of little guns.

    When I went to the range on Sat, I met up w/ someone I know who has a new 9mm Keltec. 2 clips thru that thing, and my wrist started to hurt.

    Yea, I know. But, I'm happier w/ my P99 compact than that thing.

    But, I do plan to buy a Keltec 32 later this year.

    Shipwreck,

    When I first obtained my Kel-Tec P32 it's frame went south. The hammer would not fall. I called Kel-Tec and they said to send the pistol to them, I did, they sent me a new pistol with the old pistol's serial number. Great customer service and now a great pistol.

    If you want recoil try the Kel-Tec 40 S&W. I had to grab it in a strangle hold and it still kicked like a mule. I guess it didn't like being strangled I commend Kel-Tec for it's customer service and a great product.

    Regards,

    Richard

    PS I have size 12 hands and I do not find the P32 hard to use

    Any advice on what one should pay for a used P32 or 380 at a gun show? Plans are to go to the Austin show this weekend and those guns are real cute! How 'bout some guesses? What do they cost new retail? Thanks.
