      Will be a Keltec owner soon

      In the past, I woulda held my face in shame at the mear thought of owning a Keltec gun

      Now, I think I will probably have 1 in my hand next week, if all goes well and I get a chance to go to a gunshow as planned. It depends on my work schedule, but I hope to buy one.

      So, don't tell mom and the wife that I'll be a Keltec owner

      Yes, but I do not like it - I shot 2 mags from one about a month ago - it had some extractor issues. But, the recoil was very harsh on the wrists. I did not enjoy it at all. And, it's also about the size of my Compact P99.

      Ok. Well, we are moving offices on Fri. If we are not done, I have to go back on Sat - I really want to go to the Houston gun show netx Sat - so, I won't know until Fri evening if I am going or not - I guess I could still go on Sun, but I like to be there early the 1st day before everything gets scratched up.

      If I don't go there, I'll just get my local guy to order me one...

      Anyway, I'll post up pics when I get it. Hopefully, I'll get to try it out next Sun and let ya know...

      Hey, I see people scuffing stuff up and dry firing like there is no tomorrow. Every show I've been to later in the day has guns all scratched up. So, if I go, I get there when the door opens on the Sat morning now...

      Just make them give you a NIB and inspect it real well.
      Question is will you get a 32 or a 380 32 i extra round and slide lock or 380 suppose more power for sure more recoil One less round and no slide lock. I found a pentatration test 380KT 80gr corbon dpx went like 8.3" 32 corbon 60gr hp went 8.2 " Now the DPX did do approx .70 on expansion and the 32 only opened to .45

      I'd prefer the 380, but will be getting the 32.

      I have done a bit of research on all the various gun forums, and the 32's tend to be more trouble free than the 380s. Anytime the word Keltec has come up on other sites for the past 2 months, I've kinda paid attention to those threads.

      Also, recoil will be less, as U said.

      380 ammo is actually a buck or 2 cheaper for FMJ - but it's not like I'll be using it as a major range gun
