Nice! How much you get it for? Be sure to run some rounds through it to test for reliability.

Took it in on a trade. It's had 20 rounds through it.
I'll have to take a little trip to our land for some shooting.

My dad also has a little 32 i can probably have. It's an OLD smith&wes 5 shot revolver that his dad gave him. It'll take the same rounds i assume??

Just make sure it's marked .32 ACP on the revolver and I would think they were compatible.

It sounds like your pops gave you a centennial. Those are GREAT little carry guns! If you go for your CHL, use the Kel-Tec to qualify. If you use the centennial, all you can use for carry is revolvers. MAKE your wife learn to shoot, it's a skill that's better to have and not need than need and not have.

Give me a dollar.

I've read that the Keltec 32 is much easier to shoot than the 380 or 9mm. I just can't see carrying that small of a bullet. Then again, if it has to be used, it will be at close range and likely a point-and-shoot affair to the face.

I've been keeping my eyes open for a P3AT for a pocket gun. I've been tempted a couple of times by the P-32, but really want something bigger than a .32.

I have the PF-9 and it is easier to shoot than the P3AT. I found the P3AT a bit harsh, almost brutal.

I've been tempted by it as well, but it is a little bigger than the P3AT. I like the way that I can drop a P3AT into my pocket and not even notice it there. The PF-9 is pretty small, but just big enough that it is noticeable to me.

The fact that it shoots 9mm is a definitely plus though.

Most pockets can fit 3 inch barrel pistol without an issue. I think it's the weight that really makes a pocket pistol a pocket pistol.

I've shot the P3AT in 380 ACP. Trigger was very stiff, but I heard you can send back and they adjust to something more useful.
Nifty concealed gun.

I like the Bersa, CZ 83, Sig P232, Walkther PP, and Makarov design guns.

Bersa Thunder 380 in duo-tone is nice for 220$. Mags are a bit expensive.

I'd be careful using modded guns for carry , if you have to use it ,the courts may use that against you .
