That's a fair point as far as construction. There isn't a formal 380 +P so maybe they tested them with Buffalo bore or whoever is marketing themselves as 380 +P.The Keltec P-3AT is rated for so called +P rounds possibly because the barrel and slide are machined from 4140 ordnance steel then heat treated. and the frame is machined from a solid 7075-T6 aluminum extrusion. Keltec machines via CNC and Ruger casts ALL the parts for the LCP. I wouldn't abuse my LCP. Denny
I have Keltecs, the P32. My late brother carried one. They are well made handguns. If Ruger were to make an investment cast aluminum body 32 acp like the Keltec P32 I would be putting my money down to get one.
The 32 acp has definite uses in "gun hostile" places.
