    Kel-Tec Owners?

    I see very little banter on this section of the board. Where is everyone?

    I am the new owner of a P32 with a crimson trace. I have the original grip extension and the extended mag. I chose it because of size for a CC.

    Delivery was Thursday and I will be testing it this Tuesday.

    I am also in the market for a Ruger LCP, after the recall.

    All comments, previous knowledge and experience with the Kel Tec line is greatly welcomed and appreciated.

    Have two Kel-Tecs. P11 and P3AT.

    Both are reliable. Have fired the P11 700+ rounds and the P3AT 300+ times. The P11 ejector broke at around 500 rounds. Don't know for sure but understand they had a batch of weak ejectors some time ago and have rectified the problem. Called them and had a new one in 3 days.

    Kel-Tec is neither a range or show gun. However, due to their size, weight and concealability I carry one or the other or both neearly every day and have Sigs, S&Ws, and Rugers in my collection.

    Some degrade them due to their cost and looks but that does not matter to me.

    That is why I purchased mine. I use a Baretta 9mm at the range.

    i have a P-11. I love carrying the thing. Shoot it (usually) when i do IDPA. Other option is my Colt Officers 45 i carried for years. The Kel-tec is easier to carry, harder to shoot (although practice helps a lot) and I have been very happy with it. I will get a P-3AT as a next pistol. Maybe trade my FEG in for it. Maybe not. Haven't carried the FEG much since i got the P-11, and the safety is backwards from my other guns with safeties. Very accurate thoug.
    I have found the p-11 accurate when I do my part.

    Except purely for the sake of collecting, I wouldn't bother with a LCP if you already have a P-32(3AT).

    The P-3AT I own has eaten a small diet (400-500 rounds) of WWB and Golden Saber without a problem.

    Add the Kel-Tec belt clip and a finger mag extension, and you have the perfect deep-carry tool.

    Enjoy

    Jeff,

    Nice pocket holster. I have Uncle Mikes #1 for the P32 fits great.

    I like the one in the pict with the mag. Which one is it? I can not find it on line. Is it #2

    It's a hand-modified Number 1.

    Cut the top and outer edge of the stabilizer wing, and re-sew the outer edge by hand with a loop-stitch along the very edge. The mag will fit. It's really tight going in, but leave it in overnight, and take it back out. It will stretch after a little while.

    In case you hadn't figured it out, Jeff has mad skills with the sewing machine. A certain cargo shorts modification comes to mind.

    My wife and I both carry P-11's. Mine has the pinky extension and I modified my mag to hold 12rds. I find the little thing to be a treat to shoot since I added the pinky extension. Far more stable which means better accuracy, which wasn't bad to begin with. We still have to "proof" my wife's, but we're not worried. I did a full inspection and a "fluff and buff" when we first got it, so I'm confident about her carrying it.

    You mean my Old Navy Carry Rig for a Full-size gun???




    These are mad skills... Note the full-size XD45 Service in the modified right pocket, and the spare mag in the left pocket-sleeve. Took about 15 minutes, and some tan thread... I can carry either my XD9SC (sold the Service), or if I were crazy, my M&P Pro...

    Sewed a line up the middle of the right pocket to the base of the trigger guard, and the left pocket was sewn about 1.5 inches back from the front, and to the depth of a full-size mag. No shifting, comfortable all day carry. Wallwt fits nicely behind the mag on the left to balance things out.

    Mad Skills...

    Kel Tec site

    Try browsing around over here http://www.ktog.org. When I first got my P32 I was hooked on the site.

    For AllAmerican

    Just for FYI

    AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 16-23-20, AS AMENDED, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO UNLAWFUL CARRYING OF HANDGUNS, SO AS TO ALLOW A PERSON TO CARRY A HANDGUN ON OR ABOUT HIS PERSON IN A VEHICLE IF HE HAS A VALID CONCEALED WEAPONS PERMIT.

    Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:

    Carrying of handguns

    SECTION 1. Section 16-23-20(9) of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 294 of 2004, is further amended to read:

    "(9) a person in a vehicle if the handgun is:

    (a) secured in a closed glove compartment, closed console, closed trunk, or in a closed container secured by an integral fastener and transported in the luggage compartment of the vehicle; however, this item is not violated if the glove compartment, console, or trunk is opened in the presence of a law enforcement officer for the sole purpose of retrieving a driver's license, registration, or proof of insurance; or

    (b) concealed on or about his person, and he has a valid concealed weapons permit pursuant to the provisions of Article 4, Chapter 31, Title 23;"







    "Police, at all times, should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent upon every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence" JFK

    Redwolf,

    That is very similar to Ohio CC.

    I picked up a PA permit so that I could drive to FL and see mom and be legal the entire route.

    Am I missing something you're trying to tell me? If the cun is in the case AND in the console which BTW is locked I dont see a problem.

    Ive read the law and dont seem to be in violation. Unless you've got something I dont know about.
