effed up when she sold the PT22

now that she's got the P32 Keltec, need a rimfire DAO trainer. She got the 60 gr Slivertip jhp to 1200 fps with Bullseye, 200 ft lbs, about as effective as 230 gr .45 jhps from the same barrel length (not very) 700 fps, no expansion 250 ft lbs, 80+ of it wasted on over penetration. That's pretty damned sad, when a sleeve gun hits just as hard as a big clunk like that.

I have a keltec pf-9 and it has been fairly reliable,so the 32 might be ok.

A non-existant PT22 vs a a non-existant P-32 "Sleeve" gun vs a 230 .45 ACP. Wifey is also probably non-existant by now. You must be really stretching that SSI to be able to afford all these trinkets or is Wifey a General or a Doctor by now?

I have a P32 and it's one of the most disappointing guns I've owned. Actually is one of two left that I'm almost certain to get rid of. Besides the fact that it shoots literally ~10" low at 10 feet, and the fact that in only 200 rounds or so it's broken its mainspring twice, there's the issue of just being a .32acp gun. Unlike 9mm, 380, 45acp, etc, the .32 has somewhat of a rim on it. Not a huge one, but a small one proportionately like the small one on the .45LC round. Because of the rim, any but the longest-possible OAL loadings cause rimlock in it as they try to feed up the magazine. I discovered this at the range (fortunately), when carrying the gun with corbons probably 15 years ago. I'd run several boxes of corbons thru it and they'd feed fine at the range - load the gun; shoot the gun - they did fine. But in the course of being carried in my pocket for a couple weeks, the rounds managed to jiggle/bounce around enough to rimlock in the magazine. When I went to shoot it again, the round in the chamber fired, and then the gun was locked solid, with the top round in the magazine held back by the rim of the one below it, their rims locked in the wrong position. Had to disassemble the loaded magazine to unbugger everything, and from that point on, could only trust the gun with long-OAL fmj stuff, until I replaced it with a P-64 and later an LCP.

I found a spacer someone was selling for .32acp pistol magazines, to make JHP loads fit more like FMJ loads in the magazine, but never tried one. Glued in place in the magazine, it seemed like another potential failure point. Plus the fact that it shot an inch low for every foot of shooting distance and the fact that it had already broken twice (springs), I couldn't ever really trust it again. Part of the reason that I haven't yet sold it is that I can't imagine it being any good for anyone else and I don't want dump a turd on someone else. If I come across a gunsmith that is interested I may sell it to them, but I'm hesitant to hand it off to someone who might errantly trust it as-is.

interesting to know. I have no experience with that gun. Like I said, the only Keltic I own is a PF-9, and it has been surprisingly reliable. Zero issues after hundreds of rounds through it.
