Placed the order today
Well, after reading an acre of comments, and counting up the cookie jar a couple of times I placed my order for a new Keltec P-32 today. when it gets here, I'll call KelTec for a belt-hanger and a couple of clips.
I realize that it is a lightweight and comaratively simple semi but, in the futre I may take more time and have more money and find something with a bigger hole in front. For now, I'll have something lighter and flatter than my usual carry revolver.
Thanks for all your ideas, past posts and sugggestions. I'll drop another post when I run some ammo through it.

Congrats. By belt hanger I hope you mean some sort of holster and not one of their clips.
Spare mags seem to be impossible to find- I wish I would have called KT as soon as I bought my P3AT instead of looking everywhere for them around here.

on the purchase!
The KT .32 is better than nothing...I would have ordered the .380 (almost identical in size)...but you're going to really like the concealment possibilities...not the range time...

Congrats on the KT P32. I have one I use for carry when my primaries just don't work concealment-wise. The P32 can be picky when it comes to ammo, especially with the .32's rimlock issues with JHP rounds. If you haven't found this site yet, I recommend you check it out. It has plenty of ballistics data for .32 rounds and other information you may find useful.
After purchasing the P32, I wish I had got the P3AT in .380 instead. Despite the difference in "bigger hole in front," the P32 has served me well and is much better than say, spit wads.

From what I hear you really need to do the "fluff and buff" to the KelTecs to make them reliable. There are many links to the how to on this forum or go to the forum linked to in the above post and they will have great info on the KelTecs. I looked at the P3AT's many times and they just didn't feel right in my hand. As for a holster I highly suggest the DeSantis Nemisis holster. I now have two Guardians made by NAA and I carry both of them in the Nemisis holster. Here is a pic of my Guardians.

Yes, while there are many posts here and on other threads about the infamous "fluff-n-buff," I have yet to perform such work on my KelTec P32 and it has operated flawlessly with approximately 500 rounds. The only problem I have encountered is rimlock with certain brands of JHP. Even that has more to do with the .32 round than the gun itself.

See? That's why I listen to you guys....I'll pass on the belt-hanger and spend that money on a pizza, or some fresh shrimp.
Will be looking into the holsters mentioned and will study the F&B issue.....before going to the range.
Thanks for sharing your expertise.

Cannon, I just can help it, when I see Cannon and Louisiana together I always think of Billy Cannon. All-American and Heisman Trophy winner at LSU and outstanding half back for the Houston Oilers (1960-63) and tight end for the Oakland Raiders (1964-69). He had problems later on, but was one of the best football players I ever saw. I'm telling my age.
