Ugky Gun Sunday


KelTec makes a fairly decent and once unique 32 caliber hideout gun in the P32. I own one, and have carried one, in fact. The guns are rather rough from the factory, and most owners consider them to be a starting point towards a finished carry gun. That's no big deal really. When I think about it, I presently have a Colt Commander at Clark Custom going through a similar basic process.

Sometimes though, even the best of intentions can spring hay wire. This little KelTec did not receive a reasonable hard chrome and melted slide. No. It ended up looking like a cheap hooker's all night protection. Pimps world wide would be proud.

You sure that's not a water pistol? Looks like that cheap plastic they use on those.
The Kel-Tec booth at the NRA Convention yesterday (in Phoenix AZ) was pretty busy. I gave it a pass but they did seem to have as much or more traffic as anyone.

Apparently, it's so ugly, it caused you to misspell "ugly." Heh.

A prostitute should never be slapped. But whoever created that thing should!

Fortunately, this one is imminently fixable, since the plastic "frame" on the P-32 and P-3AT is actually a frame sleeve, the actual serial numbered frame is a metal block under the plastic sleeve.

K-T sells additional grip sleeves as spare parts.

That pistol is a great candidate for a krylon job.

Yeah, how the heck did they put that finish on there? It certainly is horrible and appears to have had its already minimal sights ground off. Sure makes you wonder what gets into some people's minds.

Actually, there is a process called 'vacuum metalizing' that is used to plate plactic products. Can't say I am wild about this piece, even though a Kel-Tech P3AT is my carry piece, but since it is out of sight, I think this is a little over the line.

Isn't that the same material as is used to make Mardis Gras dubloons? If not, it's darn close.
Perhaps this is the cheap version of the, ah, overly-dressed Mexican weapons seen earlier.
