I know - it's not a Ruger, but who carries a Kel-Tec and what's your opinion? Everything I've heard is good, but can anything besides a Ruger be cheap AND good?

I've carried Kel-Tec's for about 5 years. I started out with a P32 and then a couple years ago I got a P3AT which is now my "always with me" pistol. I carry it in my front pocket in a DeSantis Nemisis holster. I have added Bersa finger rests on all my magazines, both .32 and .380. I like the more controled grip. My carry load is Remington Golden Sabers. These things are so light, thin and easy to conceal that there is never an excuse for going un-armed any where any time.

I have never had a failure with either of mine although I have done lots of 'home smithing' on them from information at:

www.ktog.org

There is a wealth of information there and the members openly share 'how to's'. If you enjoy working on your guns like I do these can be made as smooth as a fine watch. If you don't it's no problem because they work great out of the box. Because they are small, most of the problems people rant about are due to user error like limp wristing. Thankfully there isn't a bunch of 'watch out if you ever use your modified gun' posters there either. Just a bunch of great guys (just like here) who like to help out.

Kel-Tec service is very good also. Loose a part? Call them and they send it ASAP. Break something or if something looks worn? They send a replacement. Just fine people at the factory there in Cocoa, Florida.

These aren't range guns, they are BUG's and CCW's and they are excellent at that.

Yeah, I like my Kel-Tecs and they make a great little brother to my P97 and P95's!

I have a used 1rst gen. P32 which I picked up early this summer for $175. I have about 150 rds. through it with no malfunctions. It has a nice trigger and it's alot more accurate thsn I would've expected. Plus Kel Tec has a lifetime warranty so if you have any problems, they'll fix it. I don't think you would have much truoble selling it should you decide you don't like it. When the PF9 starts hitting the shelfs around here, I'll probabally get one of those also.

I don't but I know a guy who has a .40 and loves it-had it slicked up by a gunsmith to solve a feed problem and it's reliable now. I don't think there're .40s anymore. Know another ex-govt-type and he carries two of the .32 everyday in addition to a primary-he can shoot and says they do real well. I haven't heard any bad except from a dealer who didn't have one to sell.
