Picked up a Kel-Tec .32 Auto today

I just had to buy the last one in Forest Lake.
All of the .380s and .32s were going fast, and finally gone, except for one Kel Tec .32 Auto that I have been looking at.
When the weather gets warm, except for my ankle holster, my PF 9 is too big to pack, but the little .32 fits just fine in my pants pocket.

Now, I will go to the range, shoot maybe ten shots to see if it works, and hope that I never have to shoot it again for some time.
I'm not big on shooting hundreds of rounds in little carry guns.
If I really need to use them, I only ask for a few good cycles anyway. Laughing

Eric

ElyBoy ammo's tough to find for both, ( in my neck of the woods) for .32's and .380's. I bought a Sig. 232 SL in .380 from my Dad's shop and the only ammo he had for it is the $$$ Pow'RBall and GoldDot, which is fine to carry but Man I hate to shoot it up on the Range, at a buck each. Everything is on back order, and .380 ammo is almost non-existent. ( in target loads) Have you shot that Kel Tec yet?

Eric...Glockster, why not handload for either calibre?

Back in the days when I was shooting pistol...that's back in the days "when men were men and pansies were flowers"...we had a few guys shooting Walther OSP's, and all handloaded for them, with very good accuracy and results. We also had a guy that handloaded for a .32 Magnum.

Glockster...save those cases from your expensive rounds mate, and turn them into inexpensive handloaded cartridges.

Let us know how you go with it mate.

Cheers, Vince

Vince, your right. It's time to get into to re-loading. I can get all the brass I could ever use on our range, .45, 40, 9mm, 380 etc. We have 10 to 15 students a week taking Small Arms Training classes and each shoot up to 200 rds. I've never been a big fan of the smaller cal. but this Sig. fits me well and seems to group well for a small hand gun.( the little I've shot it).

I shot the little gun last week, and was amazed at the soft recoil.
Put about thirty rounds throught it with no problems, and good accuracy at fifteen yards.

I have been hauling it around with my anckle holster.

It is so small that I forget that it is even on me.

Eric

My Dad had it and didn't know he had it.. We were moving some ammo boxes around and there it was...So I grabbed it.. He has some on order but who knows when? You Re-Load .380's ?.

The Kel-tec sounds like a good gun ,but the caliber sounds like it is one for when its better to have a gun than none ...

Eric,
We must think along the same lines. I also have a Kel-tec 32 and the PF-9. Never had a failure of any kind with either. I usually carry them both.
