    Ruger LCP vs. KelTec P32 (my oppinion)

    So I just took a longer lunch break, and shot my LCP and my wife's P32

    I have to say I may just pick up another P32 and put the LCP back in the safe

    LCP hurts, feels slippery and jumps A LOT. The polyper on LCP is just too smooth for me. P32 is fun to shoot. It doesn't recoil nearly as much, and the harsher finish gives me a better grip.

    So let the caliber war begin!!!

    You expected a .32 to recoil the same as a .380?

    Carry/shoot what feels best to you ...

    When comparing "apples to apples" the P3AT and LCP are almost twins in size, shape and weight. Both have minimalist sights. Yet the slide lock on the LCP is a nice feature. From personal shooting experience, the P3AT (to me) has the better gripability.

    All other things being the same, if Ruger made a 32 LCP I expect (to me) it would move around more in my hand than the P32.

    For the same relative size I'll take the power increase.

    I didn't buy my LCP it for target shooting. I don't care if it bites me, hard, when I pull the trigger, so long as it makes a mess of the Bad Guy's day.

    I own a Keltec P32, and I love it. I did just last evening pick up a P3at because I want the extra power.

    I figure if I have to use it the Keltec P3AT, I will deal with the stinging hand. Actually it doesn't sting much at all.

    I've owned my Kel-Tec P-32 for about 6 years now.

    I've handled and shot both the Kel-Tec P-3AT & Ruger LCP.
    From my experience, neither is a big enough upgrade to justify replacing the P-32.

    If I did not own the P-32, I would have picked up the P-3AT over the LCP.


    I'm still waiting on the Kahr Arms P-380 to be released, in order to determine if I need to replace the P-32.
