    I picked up a brand new hard-chromed Keltec P-32 last week and took it to the range after an initial cleaning and "fluff and buff" (as described on Golden Loki's site). All I had on hand was a 50 rd box of American Eagle FMJ and the one magazine that comes with the gun. All 50 rounds fed, fired, and ejected with zero problems. Accuracy was very good and right at POA. Distance was ten yards. It was very comfortable to shoot and the slide locked back on the empty mag every time. I can't ask for better performance than that. It's a keeper.

    When I got mine, I did the same thing. Only after shooting it some did I clean and relube. I never did the F&B, nor do I intend to. I've had 4 FTE, but with one brand of ammo. The other brand I've used, Dynamit Nobel, has been 100% reliable for twice as many rounds as the brand that gave me 4 FTE. I did find that after 200rnds, accuracy starts to decline (accuracy returned after a good cleaning), but I never had a failure of any kind with the D-N ammo. It makes me want to get the P3AT, but I can wait.

    I want a range report on the new P3AT (380 caliber P32) should be a seriously kickass backup gun. Absolutely featureless utilitarian gun. Not even a slide lock/release, but, only weighs 7 ounces! And 7 rounds of point aimed 380 should ruin someones day.:evil:

    Do a search here and over at ktog.org. A guy by the name of Flyer has reviewed it on both sites. Short version: He likes the gun.

    Mine fired flawless straight out of the box. No problems yet. :)
