I know that I will take it to the range though and shoot it to practice with but only out to about the 15 marker.

disclaiborne Kel-Tec factory has all the parts. When you buy your pistol there should be a booklet with instructions and a parts list with prices. They also have a life time warrenty. I just called and ordered what I needed.

Good idea to practice with what you carry. Try some different types of good ammo, to see what you like. gun

I bought the P-32 when it first came out...actually for my wife. She never wanted to practice...I never had a good feeling about "arming" her...so I took back the little gun, fitted it with the "clothing clip" and I've never been without it. It's a great "up-close & personal" weapon. I hardly ever use anything but "hardball" ammo in a defensive semi-auto...the 71gr. works well enough. Nice gun.

Not a big fan. Felt cheesey in my hand but fired without incident. Bought it and sold it within a month, replaced with Beretta 3032 Tomcat that I absolutely LOVE! The Beretta for a couple bucks more is a solid piece of well built machinery that I carry when the Florida heat does not allow for concealment of a larger gun.....Different strokes for different folks.

Before you say too much about that Beretta, perhaps you could visit our thread here on that thing. I hope you didn't buy the blued model...

I have two p32 g2's, but I won't get a third.

They win big on size/weight, with good fmj penetration;

but it took too many days of handwork, analysis,

range testing, and fuss to get them reliable.



I would rather pay double for one built to work.

Now both pass my 28-shot-no-malfunction test,

and I would not sell either for 900 bucks.

The triggers are still awkward, even after building

up the grips. My daily carry must be under 14 oz.



https://sites.google.com/site/concealedgun/

has most of the fixes that the two needed.

(and those are all needed)



If you have the g1 shown on this page, never tighten the

top setscrew; it might drag on, or lock, the firing pin.



And use either Fiocchi or S&B fmj for penetration,

without being over-pressure. Testing poplar wood

penetration shows it penetrates as well as the p3AT,

which is Job-1. And you get an extra shot, with

lock-on-empty.
