    I have the Kel-tec p3at. The only difference between the two is the rod on the ruger is steel and plastic on the kel-tec.

      Had .32 Kel Tec. I had two major malfunctions with it in the first 200 rounds and never used it again. Others seem to have better luck than me but I lost my confidence.

        I own the kel-tech P3AT. Im happy very happy with it. I bought the magazine extender which allows an extra round and adds no real weight or bulk. I also use a rear pocket holster molded specifically to the gun. I think I got it at K & D Holsters. Took a few weeks to be made but is very worth it.

        I carry my kel tech as a my off duty weapon and the holster I have is very comfortable, and you can still draw very quickly from it. It is designed to look like a wallet from the outside.

        Not a lot of products that I think are good but Im very happy with my kel tech both on and off duty.

            There is a gun dealer in Hollywood on Hollywood that is good place to shop. Great staff, great prices, many options. May want to check that place out as well if you haven't yet.

              I used to be a firearms dealer. If you want a good deal go to one of the Suncoast gun shows: Tampa, Ft. Myers, Ft. Lauderdale, Palmetto etc. Lots of dealers willing to compete against each other if you shop it.

                i love my keltec p3at. i live near cocoa fl where they're made and i know if i have any issues i can walk in there during business hours.

                for the price and concealability i like the keltec.

                i don't know if you've seen this but 9mm is the way to go for those super concerned about stopping power

                        the keltec 32 had a few minor flaws with the failure to eject. if you still have it you can contact keltec and they'll machine it for you.

                        they also like to know what ammo you send thru it.

                            I to have the Keltec P3AT and I love it. I carry it off duty in a wallet holster, the holster is perfect because you can fire and load the Keltec while in the holster. I've heard that you have to fire about 200 hollow point rounds through the Keltec's first and then your good to go. I did this and have had no problems since.

                              yup, you should fire 200 rounds through it.
