    Default A group of friends with Kel Tecs

    I shoot every 5 or 6 weeks with 6 other people. We all own Kel Tec P-32 pistols. We all love these litlle pocket .32 acp guns.
    People don't realize how well they shoot. We shoot starting at 10 fet then 21 feet then 30 feet. Some of these people own two P-32's that is how much they like them. Sure there are people who say that a .32 acp is not enough, but from 1 to 30 feet we know how well they can do. Greatest pocket gun I ever owned, I carry mine daily and have full confidence in it.
    You use you high caliber pistols, for me the P-32 is perfect. With low recoil it is easy to get off 2 or 3 fast shots to center mass. Don't fool yourself, a .32 acp round can do enough damage. We know that we would use it mostly from 1 foot to 21 foot. Probably most at 1 foot to 10 feet. Try one you will like it.

    Your Jedi mind trick will not work on me.
    It doesn't matter how many "OMG .32 ACP is the bestest caliber ever" threads you start.

    I should sell you mine.
    I stopped carrying it when I bought the "same" gun in .380ACP.
    This space for rent. EM needs new tires! LOL!

    I have a Kel-Tec P3AT .380 , but the Marshall-Sanow studies have shown there is little difference in the effectiveness between the .32 and .380.

    They are nice little pistols for their purpose of a deep cover gun. Especially loaded with good ammo. You made no mention of calibers when referring to "high caliber pistols" people use, though I personally don't consider 9mm, .45 acp, or even .357 mag to be high powered in a pistol. Maybe if you get into some hunting calibers or single shots, sure, but you can do more damage with a single stack 9mm with the same special bullets think Lehigh Defense/Underwood stuff. I'll eventually be adding one of the little buggers to my safe soon enough, maybe two! Most guns have a purpose and a niche application that they work well in; some just work well and better in many different areas.

    The P32 KelTec preceded the P3AT. It is quite correct that .32 ACP can do damage. However the need is to stop a threat quickly. While a threat is a few seconds from passing out from a perforated aorta, those few seconds can be deadly to a number of people. That's if the .32 can penetrate to the aorta. And the shooter under stress far in excess of shooting at paper can hit that relatively small target. Sudden drop in blood pressure may be all you've got. I don't think a .32 will induce traumatic shock to center mass.

    Almost always have a P32 on me. As backup or alone, it meets a need.

    The P11 is a lot bigger than a P32/p3at.
    Its a 9mm double stack 10+1 capacity.
    Here care both mine for comparison.
