    I just purchased my little P3AT at a gun show this year.  I have a CCH in Texas but was fearful of carrying my gun with a bullet in the chamber.  I emailed Kel Tec asking about a possible accidental firing if I dropped it and felt more confident after their reply.  Shortly after that I accidently dropped it, bullet in the chamber and fully loaded, onto my ceramic tile kitchen floor and it was just fine.  Now I carry it everywhere.

    Does anyone know if the P32 is as safe when dropped as the P3AT?

    It uses the exact same trigger and hammer block system.

    Glad it was ok. Thanks for "testing" that for the rest of us. ;)

    Titanium firing pins are becoming an industry standard, used in everything from the P3AT to Colt (and other) 1911s

    SO, exactly where did you see a Titanium firing pin for the P3AT??

    Kel-Tec certainly doesn't make them out of Titanium, and no after-market company makes them either that I ever heard of.

    As an aside, they very likely would not work anyway.

    The K-T steel FP is as light as it can be and still be able to transfer the high-speed impact to the primer.
