    Hey yall, what do you think about this?

    I'm trying to get this picture to upload properly. Forgive opperator Error.

    I cleaned this gun thoroughly before hand. The first couple shots went fine, then some failures.

    . . . . .I love kel tec. . . . . . . . .

    I guess I should talk to the manufacturor, but they aren't open till monday. I bought the gun used. I wish I would have spent the money and time and gotten a ruger.

    Need more info: What ammo? New or reloads? Has it done this before?

    How do you know it is the weapon causing this?

    I can tell the gun is .380. What caliber are those bullets?

    WOW
    That thing has a seriously oversized chamber or that is 32ACP ammo or other incorrect size. Pull it apart and see how a round fits in the chamber.

    I would say it is the ammo before I would blame the gun.

    I seriously doubt it.

    Strip it down as far as you can, clean it real well, fully inspect it with a good light source, reassemble it and do a proper function check.

    You should be good to go.
