Default Kel Tec P32

I just purchased a Kel Tec P32. I have read lots of different opinions on Kel Tecs but this one seems great so far. I have not had it long enough to really test it out but I fired off about 25 rounds the first day I got it and it never jammed once. It is very easy to conceal. I purchased a pocket holster for it and it works great.

Any one else have experience with Kel Tec, good or bad?

Should be a great carry gun. What defensive rounds will you use?

I am not sure, any suggestions? I know hollow points are often the best defensive round but with a .32 would they provide enough penetration? I have a couple of boxes of FMJ for it right now.

I have had a P-32 for two years now. I have fired several hundred rounds through it and never have had a problem. It is a great little gun to slip into a pocket and forget about it, until you need it. I recomend a P-32 especially as a carry gun in the summer, I only wish it was a .380 like the Ruger.

I've had a P32 for years. (low 4 digit serial #). Have run
around 1500 rds through it. Other than pocket lint
and some low power reloads, it shoots everything except
Fiocchi half jacket ammo. Doesn' like that--hangs the
soft lead on the feed ramp. I usually keep it full of
Winchester Silvertips. If I can't get Silvertips, I use
Speed Gold Dot.

Kel Tec makes a .380 as well. I thought the 32 would be easier to handle since it is so small and light weight.

That's the main question isn't it?

I think hollowpoints would do the job, but don't expect the BG to be DRT!! (dead right there).
