    Bought a Keltec 32 today

    Well, just got back from the Houston gunshow today - and, I did find a Keltec 32. Several dealers had them - but I got 1 from the guy whop had it $10-$15 cheaper than anyone else. $219 for a new 2nd generation .32 model - it is black. I couldn't find one w/ the hard chrome slide - and, as I've read on other sites, I do not believe they are selling the guns w/ a hard chromed slide any longer - I was just hoping to find old stock.

    Anyway - most refinishing places only charge like $35 to refinish a Keltec slide - so, I can worry about it later when and if it gets all scratched up.

    I'll be trying it out tomorrow. I'll post a review then.

    I hope I don't have one of the occassional lemons they like to produce. If I do, then I'll just have to send it back to get worked on. But, we'll see

    I didn't bother as the gun isn't much to look at, and we all know what one looks like. But here:

    Yeah, yeah........that's what they all say. We always need pics of members guns. Pretty much everybody on the forum knows what ALL guns look like but we need each members personal "touch" on their pics so we can ooh and aah, etc. OOOH, AAAH, etc............

    I know what ya mean - I ask others to post pics. Just in this case, it really isn't much to look at. So, I didn't bother.

    Whenever I get my free Beretta, I planned to take another pic of all of my guns...

    Yes, no scratches YET :P

    I'm sure it will have some eventually :P

    If I want to later, I can send the slide to CCR Refinishing and get him to put any color I want on it for $35. - Tripp is too expensive for something this small.

    I just finished painting the front sight of my Keltec white - came out great - 1st try too. I am very anal retentive about the condition of my guns. And, I was expecting to have to use the acetone to take the model paint off many times before I ended up doing it right.

    Used the end of a paperclip, and it came out right the first time.

    I'm leaving the rear sight black for now, and I'll see how it looks tomorrow at the indoor range. If I did the rear, I'd basically have to paint the entire rear blade - so I would want a different color from the white I used in the front. I'll see how it goes - I may not need to do anything w/ the rear...

    I hear ya - but its better than nothin...

    I wouldn't buy the Keltec 9mm - it's so close in size to my P99c that it isn't worth it. And, I fired a couple of mags thru one before - damn the reoil is not pleasant. With the size being so close to my P99c, I don't know how it can be night and day when it comes to the way the 2 guns feel when firing.

    I noticed that about other people. I don't see that I will get any others, though. I already have a compact 9mm. And, the 32 fills the one niche I was missing in handguns...

    I carry the same one every day. It is less than marginal but I always say--
    " It is better than a sharp bobby pin"

    OK to shoot but it totaly tears up my trigger finger. I have a arthritic bump on my first joint of the trigger finger and in 25 rounds it is almost bleeding. MY- FAULT not the weapons. The trigger gaurd is just to small for my bumpy finger. Good carry.
