    Why only "never", "always", and "not sure"??? There doesn't seem to be any middle ground. I had some failures to extract once with my P32, but I certainly wouldn't group that into any of the three categories I have to choose from, so I'm opting out of your poll. If you count it as "always", well I had problems once with a SIG P220, so I guess those are junk too.

    Well I voted no problems (because there is no middle ground) but I have seen mag related problems (as ANY pistol with subpar mags would) and had one ligitimate problem with the ejector on the P-11. (no problems not mag related with the P-32)

    My P32 has never jammed, through ~1000 rounds.

    My P11 failed to eject AND load on the first day I shot it, so I sent the barrel/slide back. They gave me a whole new set-up no problem and it has yet to jam, through ~700 rounds.

    I can't complain, but I would put a few (like five) hundred rounds through any new Kel Tec firearm before feeling confident carrying it around for self-defense. Plus, it will help you get used to the trigger.

    apples and oranges.....

    Actually "creampuffs and lemons."

    My P32 was absolutely flawless in three years of carry.

    My P11, on the other hand, was a lemon. It went back to the factory for numerous problems twice .

    Would I buy another Kel-Tec product? Why, of course. I plan to buy their newly-released P-3AT once it gets into widespread circulation.

    Kel-tec P-32 has been fantastic for me

    I bought it last November and have since put about 500 rounds through it. It is not the most fun plinking gun in the world--but it is not meant to be! Nothing beats it for concealability, low weight AND firepower combined; it is the size of a .22LR pistol. As for reliability, I have yet to have a single problem. And, no, it was not bluffed or buffed before shooting--just cleaned throughly. I actually found it to be surprisingly accurate for such a tiny pistol. It is toy-like in size and weight.

    This is not promotion for the sake of justifying my purchase. It really has worked flawlessly.

    Yes, the 32ACP cannot hold a candle to the 9mm, 40S&W or any of the other high power auto rounds. However, how many times have you heard about a fatal shooting (like the teacher that was shot awhile ago) with a .22LR gun! Shot placement, shot placement. And, I cannot imagine anyone would not be affected at all by being shot with a Cor-bon or Magsafe 32ACP round or two, especially in a critical area. To each their own ...

    My P32 has been flawless since I got it in February. It's not fun, but it works.

    To be honest, you'd probably get booted from this site for the same offense.

    Im not lying. I coundnt log in there. And that was not me that posted. Maybe its time for me to change handle and passwords.

    ps
    Can I get booted for this?:neener: :what: :p :evil:

    pss YZ, How do I pre rimlock? He is still saying bull hockey about this. He said that he has a couple hundred rds through his P32, with only minor problems "jams" has fired only Hollow Point ammo through his. He gave me about 75rds or 1 1/2 box to try out to prove it. By the way I still cant get in there. "KTOG":scrutiny: I can look, but not post.
