hi guys, i am looking to buy this gun for my mother as she is intent on getting something small and light to fit in her purse, and the P-32 seems perfect. thing is I have no idea if this .32 caliber pistol is powerful enough to stop a deranged killer. especially in the hands of someone like my dear mother :loveydove. i tried to suggest something like a cz-52, makarov, or even one of those nice Polish P-64. but she is looking for something a little smaller or more modern... and since modern firearms are so darn expensive, and the fact that I love my momma, i even offered to pay half the price and maintain it for her. i was planning on getting a CZ-52 one of these days but seems since i am paying half for the P-32 I just cant anymore. I also have this thing about buying more than one type of gun, if I buy one and then buy 5 the first one wont be as special to me anymore(sorry, i'm a bit crazy). anyway, my question to guys is this... is the kel-tec P-32 a good choice for concealed weapons carry and can it double as a decent plinker? with a 7 round magazine will it be able to stop a hardened criminal in trembling hands? if not what do you recommend? judging from reviews I really want to buy this pistol but if its not good enough I might go with the Polish P-64 or Kel-Tec P-3AT.
