About the Handgun:
The P-32 is a semi-automatic, locked breech pistol, chambered for the .32 Auto cartridge. The firing mechanism is double-action only (DAO). The magazine has a 7 round capacity. The P-32 is one of the lightest .32 Auto pistols on the market. Thanks to its locking dynamics and superior ergonometry, perceived recoil and practical accuracy are comparable to much larger guns. The P-32 is mainly intended for plainclothes police officers as a secondary weapon, or for concealed carry by licensed citizens. The small grip size and light trigger pull make the P-32 ideal for female shooters.
About the Manufacturer:
Kel-Tec CNC Industries Inc. is a private US company founded in 1991. Initially, a CNC machine shop, Kel-Tec started to manufacture firearms in 1995. First specializing in handguns for concealed carry by law enforcement personnel or licensed citizens, they have gradually diversified into rifles. Kel-Tec has become one of the top handgun makers in the US.
About the Cartridge:
Initially introduced in europe, this semi-rimmed centerfire cartridge came to the United States when Colt introduced its 'Pocket Model' semiautomatic pistol. Like the .25 ACP, the .32 ACP is considered by many as too weak to be an effective self-defense round. But it has been an extremely popular caliber, notably by the fact that practically all minor and major manufacturers of autoloading handguns in the world have built millions of small pocket autoloaders in .32 Auto.
