    If someone is buying a 32 or 380 be it kel tec or others, accuracy should not be an issue--if it is, you are using the wrong type of gun and if you are target shooting at say 10 plus yards, you are, IMO, throwing away ammo money. The gun is a 25 footer at best and is a perfect concealed point and shoot weapon---lasers just take up space and require that tiny fraction of a second to acquire that you will not have. Just sayin.

    Probably not.

    I own one and I'm really not impressed with it.

    They are a inexpensive gun.

    But their quality leaves a lot to be desired. imho

    I usually go by the rule

    "buy quality "used" before cheap new"

    I have the P3AT and although I favor a larger caliber, the KelTec is the only gun I can conceal in the Texas heat. I carry in a pocket holster in my right front pocket when I cannot carry a larger handgun under a covering jacket. All things considered the first rule of a gunfight comes to mind....Have a Gun!!

    I have to ditto what Texcowboy wrote. In Arizona the Kel-Tec is easy to conceal during hot weather. Mine isn't pretty but while it is in my pocket I dont' care. My P3AT is very reliable and I practice a lot to remain proficient with it. The only other daily carry gun I might replace it with is the Sig P238. The Sig is much easier to shoot well but it costs $600 vs the Kel-Tec at $300. I would buy the Kel-tec again given the same circumstances and what I know now.

    I have read conflicting information about the guns, and I would like to hear from those that own/ed them. Please share the good, the bad, & the ugly stories.

    It seems to me that they can have some feeding issues when new, as well as some accuracy issues. I am also under the impression that the c-service is awesome!

    I am not looking for a range gun - something convenient to carry & reliable once it is broken in.

    THANKS!
    I have three Kel Tec pistols, and they all work fine for me. I am sold on their product and carry my P3AT daily, along with a spare magazine. I did order the base plate finger extentions from Kel Tec, along with an additional recoil guide rod and spare springs for each pistol. Some people ask too much of these small pistols at times, then when they don't deliver, they get all bent outta shape. Can you run as many "trouble free" rounds down the tube on a Kel Tec pistol that you can your Glock or SIG? Probably not, but the Kel Tecs don't cost 600$ either. JMHO.

    Well...best I can say is I might.
    My first P3AT was stolen.
    2nd one had a well known problem to Kel Tec.
    When I contacted customer service I was told if the recoil spring has not come through
    the frame yet....don't worry about it. Even though there was evidence that it was peened in that spot.
    That left me with the vision of some day when I most needed it to go bang--I'd see the recoil spring
    hanging out the frame and no bang. Got rid of the P3AT.
    But lately I have been thinking of a PF9---does that make me forgiving, wise or dopey?

    I have a Kel-Tec pistol and I have two of their SUB-2000's.
    I am considering another Kel-Tec. I am happy with their products!

    I just bought a P32

    I think that the P32 is probably the best gun they make
    Fiocchi ammo in FMJ is what I am using - it is the hottest 32acp on the market and FMJ will give the best penetration

    Yep! I own a P32 that is with me most times. Not alot of fun @ the range, but that's not what I bought it for. It gets shot at the range enough for me to stay proficient and that's what matters!

    I agree that penetration is the most important factor for a .32. And full jacket is probably the best for penetration.

    Buffalo Bore is claiming to be the hottest .32 made in the USA.
    See: .32 ACP +P Pistol & Handgun Ammunition

    At our range we are not allowed to shoot cast lead bullets so I would have to use the Fiocchi if I went that route.

    Now only would but have. Started with the .32 acp, needed a deep cover bug fast and that's what was in stock at the time. Picked up a 380 a few months latter. After a year or two I added a P-11, a pocket sized 9m/m with a 12 round magazine you betcha. Did have to put the finger extenders on the mags. and a shoe on the trigger to lighten the bite a bit but at most street fight ranges it is very good.

    I hear ya MoMan. My P3AT can be a handful, but I shoot it enough to be proficient as well. Its a gun that I carry a lot, but shoot a little.
