    My cocky cousin had a small, really small handgun that was i think a .32
    It had a pocket or belt clip like a knife has. It was either a Kahr, or Kelly tec.
    Tell me what it is.
    Reliable?
    Price?
    It was damn cool.

    Kel Tec has a P32 that has a belt clip that you can add. I personally prefer a larger round than a .32.

    You can also get a belt/pocket clip for the .380 Kel-Tec.................

    I have the Kel-Tec P3AT with the belt clip. It is a .380 acp. Been a great gun, very reliable, no failures, and perfect for CCW. Disappeears in a pocket.

    Not the gun to have if you want to go shoot for fun. Lots of rough edges and really snappy with the .380. Would definately recommend it for carry.

    Think you can get them for under $250.

    .32 ACP is great if you enjoy return fire

    Well, I'd like to know the stats of someone returning fire.
    Cause it can't be that high.

    A lot of people in boot hill thought that way. A man on a mission can absorb a lot of lead from far more powerful calibers and still kill you. If he dies later that won't help you

    Belt clips are dangerous in my mind. They do not cover the trigger so there is a greater risk of an accidental discharge than if you use a holster with proper trigger coverage.

    I agree. That's an accident waiting to happen. As well, I am not impressed by Kel-Tec. Cheap gun, crappy trigger, and not 100% reliable either. I wouldn't consider carrying this gun. There are so many better options out there.

    For the other side of the arguement. I've never had a problem with my Kel-tec.

    Doesn't come close to the quality of a Seecamp though, but then look at the cost.

    Still have a chance, albeit maybe remote, of catching it on something which, in my mind, would be taking unneccessary risks.

    I haven't with my P3AT but the P-40 with either the standard .40 barrel or the optional .357 SIG can cause people problems if the limp wrist it! In fact, that's the reason KT quit producing it, just too many perfectly functioning guns returned to them.

    Yes, it's "snappy" and people stop and ask what it is due to it's small size and sound. It used to be my carry gun, and it is VERY reliable, if held right.

    I carry the P3AT in my bathrobe pocket and have for years now with never a "catch". The trigger has a long hard pull unlike a Glock. I won't own a Glock due it not having a positive safety and all the ND's that the police have had over the years.
