    My first time here, and I want ot make you all aware, if you do not already know, that Kel-Tec is considering selling 10-round magazines for the P-3AT. Kel-Tec has a survey on their web site, and this subject is one of the options.

    Anyone else that would to see this happen, please hit the survey. Their marketing person, Karen, will be back from vacation next week. Suggest you also call her and tell her you want them to have it produced.

    Men are stupid. Lots of times we consider looks over all else. Guess what? I'm one of those stupid guys. I just don't like the looks. I don't even like the small mag extension available now.

    I like the P3AT just the way is is. I will go for the pinky extension. Again, looks. Oh well. Some of us will never learn.

    And like someone said in the links provided, defeats the purpose of the P3AT. Instead of small and concealable it'll be big and ugly.

    I also agree,I dont like it. I purchased my gun because it was small and easy to conceal

    It would be nice to have that option and I would buy one as soon as it hit the market. The +1 extension already allows me to carry 7+1 so two more rounds won't make that much of a difference in the length of the mag. Probably 1 1/4 inches max. It would be a nice thing to have at the range as well and the added length would make the gun much more accurate than it already is. YMMV.

    Small, easy to carry, easy to pull out of your pocket the way it is. The main thing is to be able to put the load where it will save your life if needed!!

  9. Who tries to put the big mag in their pocket?

    The big mag could be handy as a back up and a range mag, and like a lot of things you will see on this board- if you stick around long enough, is that there are alot of good DIY projects.

    Aside from reading this board- some of you guys may also want to consider this as a good read:

    It'd be cool for the range.

    It'd be cool for a range toy and for a backup magazine..

    Let's face it, there are situations that may arrise, where being stuck with 7 rounds of .380 might be less then ideal..

    Bring it up to 17.. and well, we're looking at a slight improvement of those odds...

    I've read stories of shoot-outs, during botched robberies, that the surviver traded several bullets with the would-be robber and it was the last bullet that they had, that barely made the difference...

    Carry more, carry often!

    I don't think so. I'll grab my .40 S&W long before I try to "make do" with ten rounds of 380. The whole idea of the P3AT is to carry it in your POCKET!
     
  13. What POCKET do you carry your S&W .40 cal chambered gun in?


    With a 10 round BACK UP mag, what would stop you from carrying the 3AT in your pocket?

    I do not get the concept that some of you don't want EXTRA ammo. PLEASE HELP ME UNDERSTAND how fewer rounds is better in a SPARE MAGAZINE?

    The point is, a 10 round magazine totally defeats the purpose of its (P3AT) small size... If I wanted MORE ammo, I could simply carry my CZ83 as it is a double stack 12+1 in 380. Or I could pull my 12+1 40 S&W out. I didn't say it was in my pocket... now did I?

    Sorry for the confusion, but I am perfectly happy with my P3AT just like it is...

    Hmm... interesting.

    I assumed most around here would pull out their P11 if they wanted more firepower. [smiley=huh.gif] [smiley=laugh.gif]

    You know not of what you speak.  That reviews page is from 2002...and frankly even then didn't have a lot of "issues."  A lot of water has passed under the bridge and of all the weapons KT makes, the P11 is lowest on the "issue" list - probably something having to do with it being larger and heavier than some of the other pistols. Weight:power:size DOES make a difference.  Short of a batch of ejectors that didn't work when they tried to make a new one work for the Pf9 and P11, I can't think of any "issues" that would be valid today.

    Or mine. But it's a better pocket gun than a 3AT, if you're wearing the right clothing.

    I cannot speak as to whether P-11 reliability is better or worse than in 2002. But my P-11 is fine, and has never jammed or what have you in many hundreds of rounds. Mine hails from 1996 though.
