Walt suggested I look at Kel Tec if I was interested in another 32. Along the way I stumbled upon "keven concealment.com". What's cool.about it is it looks like a wallet. Not kind of like a wallet, exactly like a wallet. And the Kel Tec P32 is so small, it fits inside. The report of the 32 is light enough that the diminutive size of the gun isn't unmanageable. I know, 32 won't stop an undead zombie on crack. Still....in my line of work, hiding a firearm is almost impossible. Lifting overhead, reaching on hands and knees, and everything in-between. I tried boot/ankle carrying, but I walk for miles and drawing is almost impossible. Anyway, video on the Kel Tec looks good, just wondering about the wallet holster.

I just brought in a Keltec p32 for a customer. Looks the exact same size as a keltec p3at to me.

The guy that runs our local range carries one in his front pocket. Not a lot different in size from my Taurus TCP that I carry in my front pocket.

It's about the same size as a P3AT - but it is a little bit lighter.

The P32 is actually the lightest center-fire pistol I've seen.
There may be a lighter one out there, but I haven't seen it.

I always thought a P32 might be a good pistol for a lady to carry if she doesn't like a .380
I've never fired a .32, but I would think it would be a little more tame than a .380

Jason to me, the .32acp is a kind of halfway point between the .25acp and the .380acp.

Israeli mossad used 22 cal Berettas against hijacking terrorists for years so comments about anything smaller than 9mm being ineffective is uninformed. Calling 32 a lady's caliber would be an insult to the thousands of law enforcement officers who carried them for years in Europe. Shot placement under stress is what I perceive as the most important. Descriptions of Mossad putting 3 shots on target in close quarters with no collateral damage is worth emulating. My hope is that the Kel Tec shoots more reliably than the Sccy, is lighter than the Tomcat and as accurate as the Phoenix. After seeing the wallet holster video I'm amped. I have an anniversary coming up so funds are limited. I should have the money by fall. I promised the wife a Flashbang bra holster for her Charter Arms revolver. She watched the Flashbang video and has to have one. What did we do before the internet?

So, can I ask what issues you have with the SCCY? I have the CPX 2 and it has been flawless for a couple hundred rounds so far.

It's a fail to feed/eject issue. Every once in a while the round gets nose up and interferes with the ejecting casing. I thought it was one magazine, but it's not. I tried tweeking one of the mags and when I think I've got it right it happens again. It's not ammo specific. I like the gun and it's attributes, but until I get it sorted out the gun is just for plinking

I've gotten in the habit of loading my mags and letting them sit for a couple weeks. I haven't had any trouble with mine and feel confident carrying it.

I know that SCCY recognizes a problem with the magazines and will replace them with a phone call.

Good to know!! So it's not just me. Lol Do you know of any trigger mods. I'm not talking about lighter, the heavy trigger is how they get away with no safety. I mean after about 50 rounds my trigger finger hurts. Not closed in a car door hurts, but it's sore. I've contemplated sanding the ribs off the trigger.

I was into .32s for a while, and i still like the old and odd in that caliber.
My favorite is a H&R Self Loading .32, followed by a prewar Walther PP.
Also have a CZ 70, and a Beretta Tomcat, and I think that's it in .32

The ribs on the trigger don't bother me but the finger grooves are too small for my fat fingers. I'll be trying to work that out this weekend. Maybe I'll do a post on it.

In the previous thread I mentioned that I had the Sccy problem fixed. Then , a week later it gives me all this trouble in front of friends. Really pissed me off! Fortunately, there are enough choices in the "arsenal " that it didn't ruin my day. I just made me look bad and I really don't need help with that.
