    Dont turn this into a caliber war. I'm sure the OP can and has read. He wants the P32 and asked about it. Nothing more.

    I had the P32 but gave it to a buddy of mine when I bought the P3AT. To be honest, the P32 was more fun to shoot. Considering how cheap they are, I have kicked around the idea of getting another. If you can afford it, I would go w/ NIB since the difference in price in minimal.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    I have first gen parked model that I bought in 2000 if I remember correctly. This was before the P38t was offered. If I had a choice now, I would just go with the P38T. Not sure if many people are aware of this, or think about it, but the P32 doesn't feed a lot of JHP's very reliably. It suffers from rimlock. You can buy kits from Kel Tec, or make them yourself.

    Interesting study done about .32 performance here:

    I wouldn't pay much more than $150 for a used P-32.

    Mine is an older one too, a fluff and buff and its about as good as it gets. I don't shoot JHP in mine anyway, just good quality ball. It still doesnt like the cheap garbage ammo much.

    Be sure to shoot them first if you can, there is a signifcan difference in the snap of those little pistols... and I prefer the 32... however I will say this, I have a friend who had the p38t ported, almost no recoil, little more flash and noise but at 10 yards and in that puppy was sweet! Also the KT is +p and the ruger is not... I like the rougher grip on the KT's also...

    Shouldn't be.
    I've been curious of the P32 as well. I'm a big fan of pocket carrying.

    I'm not looking to hijack this thread, but it is relevant. I have both, and have shot them enough to know them. The P32 is nice, and the P3AT is a bit snappier. Here are the targets if it helps the OP out..

    Target at Seven yards..

    Glock27/ KaBar TDI/ MTAC Holster. I have more also, but this combination works well..

    I saw a Kel Tec P-32 go for $175 with a cheap pocket holster and two mags that had the one round extension.

    What would be a good price for a used P3AT?

    The new Diamondback 9mm weighs 12 oz and has been getting promising reviews. Might be worth a look. You carry a pistol to stop a threat in its tracks. Neither a .380 or .32 has adequate "knock down" capability or penetration to be carried as a primary defensive pistol. The fact that they are so tiny and easy to carry makes it easy to cloud one's judgement when selecting an adequate caliber for carry. Can they kill you? Of course.....eventually. I don't like "eventually".
    I want "dead right there". Leave the .32's and .380's for backups only and get a decent service caliber weapon for primary carry. I carry either a Keltec PF-9 or a Kahr CM 9 in my right front pants pocket every day.....as backups to my Glock 19. Practice and prepare with what you know is right, not what is easy and comfortable.

    I think I gave around the $200 range for my P32 (NIB). Mine has shot everything I have tried so far, Gold Dots, some every old Hydro Shocks and high-end, thru bottom basement FMJ. I have a friend living in Germany and he sent me a few boxes of FMJ for it, seems their loads are a little hotter than our stuff.
