    Wink Kel Tech P32

    I have had mine for Three years now. I have fire about 3200 rounds through it now. Ok mind you it is a first gen. so no Allen screws on ejection rod.

    I have not had one problem with it and I have faith that it will do the job. It now is the gun i carry when Iím not carrying Wink Wink. (great belly gun a to 30ft)

    I think that if you want to knock it for its cheep price, try it first. With the belt clip it looks like a knife in the waist band. It fools everyone I know.

    I have a friend with one, He loves it. It is not something I would wanna gun fight with but for a deep cover piece, it fills the bill.

    I love my later gen P-32. I only have about 200 rounds through it. I only shoot a mag or two out of it every few months, just to make sure it's still working. It usually rides in a cheap pocket holster or sometimes a don hume iwb.

    I shoot and carry 73grn Fiocchi FMJ since it's a bit hotter than US made ammo.

    EDIT: I wanted to add that I tried shooting a few 380 compacts before getting the P32. The 380 has too much recoil in such a small package. I found it harder to control. I want to try the belt clip too, probably easier than IWB holster.

    My P32 has filled every role from second pistol, always gun, and for a time the only pistol. It has never failed. I shoot a magazine several times a year and clean the pistol once a month. Front pocket in an Uncle Mike's #1. I loaned it to a friend when his needed to go back to Kel-Tec. A long eight weeks. My CW9 took up the slack, but I missed the little dude.

    Its great when I can't carry anything else.People laugh at a .32 but I sure wouldn't want to be hit by 4 or 5 rounds from it.It would ruin your whole day. sj

    I have a P32 too. Its been in my stable for ten years now. I like it a lot, its not the most high quality gun, but it does what it was designed to very well.

    I have one that I carried exclusively for years. I dont carry it that much anymore. Its nice to know its an option. It has been carried in all sorts of adverse conditions and has never missed a beat. I carry Fiochhi as awell and have been pretty impressed. I have thought of trying out an LCP but think I may have the best compromise for size and recoil.

    My P-32 is ten or more years old, it looks like a fence post. It has been carried many miles,it has been pocket carried, necklace carried, ankle carried and it shows character with each rub or scratch on it. I fire mine once or twice a year load a fresh magazinein it after cleaning, and still yet to have a failure to fire.

    I'm looking for a P-32; I like the size for those places when you absolutely cannot be "made". it's interesting, though - when I first started reading & posting here, most folks really dumped on anything Kel-Tec. Now, I think they're taken seriously like they should be. My P-11 is a good pistol that works properly.

    I bought the second one that came into the gunshop where I was working, when they finally started shippimg them. The owner got the first one. I change my primary depending on my mood, but I always have a P32. I broke a slide stop spring 7 or 8 years ago and was down for about a week. I had the neck lanyard loop on it for about 5 years, but never used it and took it off and sold it.

    My P-32 has been a daily carry for about 4 years. Very reliable, and quite concealable, even in summer wearing shorts and a t-shirt.

    I was impressed with the person that had fired 3,000+ rounds through his P-32. While I like mine, it hurts my hand to shoot more than 20 rounds. In 4 years, I've probably fired 2 or 3 boxes of factory fmj. My other carry gun is an S&W Model 442 (.38 SPL), and it isnt much fun to shoot, either. I have other handguns (heavier) that are much more pleasant to shoot.

    I owned and carried a P32 for about 4 years, for the usual reasons. BUG, deep cover, summertime carry, anytime the little Kel Tec in the pocket was just the best option.

    Last year I traded it in towards a new P3-AT. I couldn't resist having the extra punch out of the same package. Unlike some others, I enjoy shooting the P3-AT. Recoil is sharp, to be sure, but not painful, and not as bad as some other guns I have.

    My Kel-Tec sits in a DeSantis Nemesis pocket holster in my right front pocket whenever I'm not carrying something larger.
