I 've read a lot of info on the web on how the mini Kel-tecs should perform like target pistols and be as durable as a model 5903 S&W 9mm. My understanding when I first saw the P-32 and now the P-3AT was that these were small lightweight concealed carry primary or back up pistols. They were to be carried a lot and shot enough to break in and practice with every once in awhile, not run 200 rounds thru every weekend. I heard a long time ago that some people expected to much out of the S&W Sigma .380 also and was one of the reasons it was discontinued. S&W always intended that pistol as a back up or primary concealed carry for those who did not or could not carry something larger. What do you think do some expect to much out of these lightweight mini powerhouses or are they fullfilling the niche they were intended for? I hope they don't go the way of the Sigma.380. My P-32 has performed great for what I thought the pistol was made for.
