Mo might throw in his 2 cents on the SCCY - I believe he bought one brand new a little while ago.

And I certainly wasn't suggesting the 32 was a "girly man" caliber - I carried a 25 ACP for quite awhile.
My wife has a Jimenez JA-22 pistol and I'd like her to get something center-fire and DAO to carry.

I love my little 380 Beretta Pico - it weighs 11.5 oz - and it's been rock-solid reliable so far.
The wife is a smaller lady - 4ft 10 inches tall - and she can handle the recoil of my 380 but doesn't like it much.
And it's a little heavier than she'd like too.

The P3AT weighs 8.3 oz and the P-32 is 6.6 oz... :shock:

That P-32 is getting close to 1/2 the weight of my Pico!!
I imagine the lighter weight doesn't help with the recoil - but it should have less recoil than a 380.

So I'm kinda thinking the P-32 might be just the pistol for my wife.
Really light - so she'd be more likely to carry it- and easy to conceal.
And a center-fire with a little more punch than a 22.

The toughest thing is finding one...
Kel-Tec is insanely popular!!
My suppliers haven't had a P-32 in stock for a long time - or a P3AT either...

I have a Taurus 738 TCP and love it. I didn't like the recoil at first but it was only a one and a half fat finger grip. I found an extension for the magazine and the difference it made was night and day. A full two fat finger grip and way more control.

Just something to think about.

Just ordered a Kel Tec P32 from Sportsman's Guide for $216... and a Carhart jacket...and some ammo....and a hooded sweatshirt. Damn Sportsman's Guide and their free shipping coupon. I'm a member because I buy ammo through them whenever they have free shipping, but also end up with other stuff that I "need". And don't get me started about Nova buying Christmas presents from them. The UPS guy should have his own parking space on my driveway. Back in the day before Olson sold the company to Northern Tool, the descriptions in the catalog read like the "Mr. Peterman" character from the Seinfeld sitcom. I use to read the catalog for its entertainment value.

You can find coupons for their free shipping just about anytime if you purchase more than I think 99 bucks. Just google "sportsmans gude coupons" That's what I do ;)

I probably should get one...
I have been watching my supplier for a long time - and even have one on backorder - but have had no luck.
I can get it a little cheaper from my supplier - but by the time they get one we all probably will have died from old age!! :neutral:

I should just get her a .380 Beretta like I have and tell her to get used to it.
I'm really liking the little Pico!!
But a .32 would be fun too... :D

Their price was $216. My FFL charges $30. Free shipping every couple of weeks for purchases over $49. The membership more than pays for itself with my ammo purchases. It's where I get all the steel cased crap I shoot. Gun choices are what ever they get and don't stay in stock. Clothing choices are size or color specific. Their like the Harbor freight version of Cabela's.

I picked up the Kel Tec P32 yesterday. Wow, is it light. I was afraid that even the diminutive 32 round would be to hot for the "light as a feather" gun. I was wrong, it's perfect. In spite of it only weighing in at 6.6 oz., recoil wasn't an issue. As a matter of fact, I was over gripping it at first which affected my accuracy. Once I settled down, cans were easy to knock down at five yards. The wife and I took turns shooting groups of five and went through a box of fifty without a single failure. She was hitting everything with ease and when the box was empty announced, "I want one!"

Glad you guys liked it.
I think Kel Tec gets a bum rap sometimes
If they were that bad, they wouldn't be copied so much
I love my Kel Tecs
