I noticed two Used Seecamp 32 autos at the cableas store few months ago for $499 and $525. Saw the the same guns again today, Curious. so I spent the time to track down the head guy for trade in and used guns. He said that so many cheaper 380 autos on the market, difficult to sell high end Seecamps 32 Auto. His point was can't sell 32 cal when 380 auto available cheaper.

Dont know about the Seecamp 380 have never seen one. No plans on buying one, my Kel Tec P3AT works great for me. Took a while to get used to the trigger pull. Have read shooting the Seecamp in 380 is a painful experience for some.

On the NAA web site is a nice spreadsheet for bullet weight speed and engery. Informative, for comparing one caliber to another.

I'm surprised he didn't offer a better price; you could get a brand new one for less than that: http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=185851325

Nice gun, but the lack of sights would bother me. I saw a Kahr P380 at the nearby Cabela's; if I was looking for a high end pocket gun, that's the one I would go for.

true about less. few years ago Seecamp was $385 direct sale, plus shipping and what ever one had to pay your local FFL. and a six month wait. no clue current status.

See the link above. $409 Buy Now + $25 shipping + whatever your kitchen table FFL or gunshop wants to do the paperwork.

The Seecamp 380 must still have a waiting list. Someone is hoping to get $1450!!! http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=187535944

The seecamp 380 costs twice the price of the 32. For that price I would go $200 more and get a Rohrbaugh.

A new Seecamp plus Aker pocket holster and extra mag can be found at www.migunslingers.com for $465. Cabela's is asking above MSRP for a used pistol...

You could do better on that but why a 32 auto? Wouldn't want to get shot I'm sure it would sting a little.

I have a couple of the Ruger LCP's .380autos and they are everything I need in a pocket BUG. Haven't looked at any other pocket guns since - the niche is filled!

Nice gun, but the lack of sights would bother me.

In my experience, the little pocket .32s don't need sights. Point shoot and keep it close. Past 7 yards, these little guns seem to shoot paper plate size groups.

My Seecamp clone NAA Guardian .32 has sights which are pretty much useless for the accuracy available out of a short barreled, heavy trigger, DAO pistol.

Yes, Virgina....the Seecamp 380 is not a gun you wanna plink with.....

Past 7 yards, these little guns seem to shoot paper plate size groups.I know accuracy isn't always necessary, but lack of accuracy gives me lack of confidence in the gun. The Kahr is thinner and lighter than the Seecamp. This guy was able to shoot 2-3" groups at 25 yards!

Seriously, who is going to be shooting one of these little BUGs at 25 yards? The Seecamp in 32acp is one of the only TRUE pocket guns that I have full confidence in.

The Kahr is thinner and lighter than the Seecamp

But longer and taller - the point is the ability to fit in one's pocket...............
