    Default My Kel Tec P-32

    All I can say is the P-32 is one excellent pocket pistol. I have put 100 flawless rounds thru it and it shoots well one hand or two. I have fired a small .380 and it is much to snappy and would not want to shoot more than about 10 rounds. With the P-32 I can shoot 50 rounds and be ready to shoot 50 more. I just want people to know how nice this gun is. Dependable, accurate enough, and goes bang every time you pull the trigger.
    If you are looking for a pocket gun, before you buy a small .380 try and shoot a Kel Tec P-32, I believe you will really like it.

    +1 I have had no problems with my P32. First choice for a gun fight?? No, but it is always on me.

    I always have a P32 on me if it isnt the P11. It disappears in a pocket. I own a few Keltecs.
    Facts all come with points of view, facts dont do what I want them to.

    One problem I had with the P-32 is trying to eject a Wolf HP unspent round. The ejection port was too short when the barrel moved to the rear while cycling the slide - causing the round to jam.

    If this is a carry piece, check 'dud' round ejection with your ammo while holding the pistol pointed in both the up and down position.

    I agree and use FMJ although I'm sure there are many who carry HPs and are unaware of the ejection issue. Better to check now before exigent circumstances arise.

    I love my wife's P32. That little thing has never skipped a beat. It's surprisingly comfortable to shoot and it's accuracy defies the laws of physics.

    The Geco FMJ is the stuff to carry in a .32acp. Hollow points at that velocity are pretty much useless. Goldenlokki's tests showed it was the most effective round by a decent margin. The Fiocchi FMJ isn't bad either.

    Dr. Silverman stopped a mass shooting with 32acp earlier this year!
    ...and they have a plan...

    I use HP's at the range and have had no problem. But I carry fmj. I have used HP's in both my .32's with no problems. But mostly I shoot and carry fmj. People do not realize how good the .32 acp is. It will go thru 4 layers of denim and penetrate 14 inches in balistic gel with fmj. For me the .32 acp fits perfectly well for carry and home defense.

    It's funny cause I have a P32 for sale right now. I HATE that firearm and can't wait for it to sell. Maybe it's because I have larger than most hands, but I really do hate that thing. I'd have to say I put about 50 rounds (or less) through it, that's how much I hated shooting it. I upgraded to a Kahr CM9, fits me better.

    Is the P-32 smaller than the .380 and is the recoil a lot less than the .380?
    My wife is having trouble with recoil. She has a .22 but I would like her to have something bigger. She doesn't like the snappy .380.
    Thanks
