I have a P3AT I've had for many years, and my wife has a P32. The .380 is not what I'd call desirable to shoot at the range, it's a bit unruly when fired repeatedly. It serves its function though as a small personal defense weapon. My wife carries the P32 everyday. The .32 has a much more manageable recoil, and she's fires at least 50 rounds when we go to the range with it. I carry the .380 during the summer when I need something more concealable given the less cover in hot weather. Neither of them ever have any issues. I've owned and carried the P3AT for about 8 years now. It's very tolerant of pocket lint to. I've never stripped and cleaned it now that I think about it. Better go home and do that tonight.

My first sub compact years ago was a P11 9 mm back in the mid 90's when they first came out.

Great little gun. My only complaint with KT's are the heavy triggers but for a "contact distance" pocket gun the price point is excellent and there reliable all day long in my experience.

Tack

I purchased a kel tec p11 a few months back just because it was cheap and I had the money. First thing I did was get finger extensions and a trigger shoe. But to me the trigger pull was still bad I could not fire as fast as I was used to and that bothered me also no matter how much practice I put in at 15 rds I could not get a good group on it after months also that cheapy plastic rear sight started to wear down very fast because of how it sat in my holster.....I sold it a few weeks ago and bought more ammo for my sr40c I will say it was a reliable gun and kel tecs customer service is great I won't fault anyone for carrying one

A pocket KelTec is a good last-ditch self defense gun. The complaints about the trigger are misplaced. The heavy pull and long travel are safety. It is a single purpose firearm, to be practiced with from time to time, but not for regular range fun. It's main attribute is reliability. As long as it cycles your chosen HP ammo, that's all you can ask for. KT has good customer service.

Wow 6'5! I bet you could carry any full size gun and not get noticed.

My first gun ever was the Kel-Tec P-11. I believe I got it from the gun and knife show back in the early 2000's. I paid only like $250 for the gun and took it to the range quite often. I had malfunctions with it but that could've been from not cleaning it; I didn't even know how to field strip it Anyway, it was cool for a first time buyer.
