I just got my new Kel Tec. I'm about to do some shooting to break it in. What kind of ammo are you guys carrying in the keltec?

CorBon DPX. Test reports show the stuff functioning properly through leather and jean materials. Excellent petal formation and no plugging. I can't find a local retailer so I just order it from Midway or wherever may be cheapest online.



As for your 3AT, spend some time over at KTOG.org. Those guys are great resources for everything Kel-Tec. Find the instructions for the "fluff and buff" over there as I'm a believer that this ought to be done to every Keltec just to make sure no rough edges or tooling marks cause problems. Too many people don't spend a little time on the front end when they get the gun, and then complain about FTFs, etc. later. It's probably true that every brand of gun could use a little polishing of certain internals here and there (e.g., even our M&P's suffer from some rough edges that cause gritty triggers and squishy resets), but that goes without saying on a Keltec. The company admits it doesn't "fluff and buff" them before they go out the door, but that's o.k. when you're only paying $259 for a base model. One more thing, get yourself an Uncle Mike's slip-on grip in the small size for more control. Those DPX rounds have some snap. Also, I find the Uncle Mikes Size 1 pocket holster to be perfect. If you open the little extra sewed-up flap on those holsters, you can carry your 3AT and an extra magazine in the same pocket with ease.



Congrats on the new gun purchase.
