      Would you buy another?

      Kel-Tec owners only - Would you buy another Kel-Tec?

      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 a P3AT. Ugly as hell and not a range gun, but it goes bang every time I pull the trigger. Never had one feed issue. Can't beat it for concealability. I'd definitely buy another one.

      I have (and carry) a P32.

      Yes I would buy another Kel-tec. PF-9 interests me as do several of their rifles.

      Without hesitation... but I doubt i'll wear my P-3AT out... and I can't afford 380 ammo!!! so it will be a while!

      P11, P3at & 2 PF9s. Yep, I'd buy another one and will if I ever see a chrome PF9.

      What he said.

      The only thing i would do different is buy the hard chrome model. Sweating in the hot New Mexico summer has caused some surface rust.

      In a heartbeat. I love my P32 and if it ever wears out, I'll be at the store the next day getting another one.

      Have a p32 that has never failed to go bang. Been keeping my eye out for a 9mm for a while.

      The only question I have about my keltec p3at is will a .380 caliber be adequate in an emergency. Is a 9mm or 45 acp better? Sure shot placement is important, but in an emergency with adrenoline pumping and hands shaking more power may be better than placement.

      I would, I have, I will again.
      My guns are not poor in accuracy. They do have a hard trigger to get used to, and once used to they are as accurate as any other gun i have. in other words, it aint hte equipment, its user error.

      Anything is better than nothing. the 9mm-45 argument i will not go there. i have both, i have carried both. depends on my mood and ammo and how much i have shot which. but i find i ALWAYS have my P3AT on me. (when it is legal to do so) and that is not true of all others. although the P-11 is a VERY close second on carry at all times.

      Yes. Way better.

      I have the P3AT and have had no problems. It is not a fun range gun....but it fires every time I pull the trigger.

      If that were true, then every time someone got shot with a .45 or .357, they would be stopped. But that doesn't happen.....

      Thanks to all that posted regarding their experience with Kel-Tecs. As far as caliber size & stopping power - take it to another post!

      I bought a P-11 on gunbroker & it is on its way! I will share my thoughts when it gets here. Thanks again!

      I've carried a P-11 (CCW) for 6 months.....500 rounds fired....one Fail to Fire and one Fail to Load during the first 50 rounds, not an issue since then. The trigger takes a whole lot of getting used to but it's a heck of a gun for the money. You won't impress anyone at the range with the accuracy but it's comforting to have in your pocket when you're gassing up late at night because you know it'll stop anything within seven yards of you.
