I picked it up at Gables in D-Ville for $269. It is OD green with the hard chrome finish.

I took it to the indoor range in D-Ville. I put 90 rounds through it. I had 3 failures to feed and 1 stovepipe. It has decent combat accuracy at 7 yards. It kicks like a little mule and I have a blister between my thumb and index finger. I took it home, disappointed with the performance. I cleaned and lubricated it. I hope that will correct the feed problems. I am going to take back to the range next week and force myself to put another 100 rounds through it to see if I can get it broke in. If the feed problems continue I will try to Fluff and Buff it or just send it back to Kel Tec.

I do like the size of pistol. Now I have no excuse not to have a pistol on me at home. I bought a cheap Uncle Mike's pocket holster that keeps it secure in my front pocket. I just hope I can get the hiccups stopped on what could be a great pistol.

They say you need to run about 200 rounds through it to break it in and consider it reliable.

i heard the 3AT and the P32 both need some fluffing and buffing to be tip top.

I know a cop that has a p32 in his BUG stable and said he has never had a failure of any sort.

I thought about the .380 but the rangemaster here in athens said the .32 was more reliable.

Although the most reliable is my S&W 642, I wouldn't mind picking one of these guys up. I'm only hesitant because of the reliablity issues...the gun does me not one bit of good if there is history of jamming, etc and always needing a buffing or at Kel-Tec.
