Well over 600. Actually I believe its over 750. Nearly all have been FMJ. A box of winchester and one of remington at the outset IIRC. Then I switched to S&B 73 gr for over 350 rds. Then to Aguila 71 gr FMJ . Good results. No rimlock. No FTF. Only 3 FTE and all of those were inadvertent limp wrists on my part (I was transistioning targets).

If you will peruse the KTOG forum you will see threads to Golden Locki's site and some testing results he did. Thats why I switched to FMJ and S&B is pretty hot. I have chrony'd the S&B's twice and the results I have here at hand show a 811 FPS avg on a 7 shot string with very low standard deviation. IIRC the second test had slightly higher FPS avrage but I cannot find the notes on it right now.

Not much of a stopper but it beats a police whistle and it is a better back up than my money clip knife.

Rounds thru my new P32

Ugh.... 45-50, more or less. I've only had the little sucker for a few days, so count will go up as I can afford more of the ammo.. I still can't understand why I can buy white box 9mm ammo for $10 bucks a hundred, and these wee little 32 S&B's are so pricy? No matter, I love my P32. It has been 100 reliable and very accurate.

Well over 1000. Mostly FMJ and that mostly S&B and close to 200 federal HydroShok.

At about 300 rounds I had a feeding problem. Sent it back to Kel-Tec with the mags. Less than a week later received the gun back cleam and all smoothed up with all new springs (even the mags) and throat polished. Great customer service.

Now almost 2 years later I had a problem I can only describe as galling on one of the frame rails. Cleaned it up with a fine file and applied a liberal amount of the "Super Lub of the Week". Fired 50 S&B and 19 Fed HS without a hickup.

Now it's cleaned up, loaded up (10 & 8 plus 1), and resting back in it's little pocket holster. Mine is the DL which sits nicely in the back pocket of my jeans.

I keep thinking about a p3at... but why?

Only fired about 70 rounds. Not much fun AT ALL.

I carry it often, more than any other gun these days. It is so light and handy. But don't like the recoil and bite that results from its light weight.

350 so far with no trouble at all. The most I have shot at one time is 50. I put a mag or two through it every now and then. S&B all; 73g FMJ. My first one, got it right when they came out, was a POS. Like this one but wouldnt trust my life to it . Only a last ditch stand. Fun to shoot.

I've run about 400 rounds through my first generation P-32. Ammo was all FMJ, a mix of S&B, Fiochi, Privi, Aguila and Federal.

My wife's second generation has about 500 rounds, mostly Privi Partizan. My wife likes to shoot at golf balls about 10 to 15 feet away. I have to remember to put my finger on the top of the trigger to avoid a blister.

I though about the 380, my hands aren't getting any younger.
