    I've had my P3AT for a little over a month now and it's been perfect so far.  I love shooting this little guy - I only wish .380 ammo was a little cheaper and that the outside of my trigger finger was a little tougher.  Yesterday was only my second trip to the range with the P3AT and I put another 50 flawless rounds of Magtech FMJ.  I now fully trust this gun as my CCW.  It's so easy to carry and I'm convinced that it'll get the job done.  It makes me want to buy more of these... hmm.

    Here are the results of 2 6-round mags, standing up 2-handed slow fire from 21 feet.  The 2 fliers are the last shots from each magazine.  It was getting pretty dark and that front site was harder to pick up.  I've got some nitesiters on order so maybe that'll help.

    looks like if that was a attacker, they would be hurting pretty bad. amazing how well these little guns shoot considering how small they are.

    I agree!!  I would have never ever believed that these guns could be so accurate until I shot my first full magazine 4 weeks ago.  The engineering that went into the design of the P3AT is amazing.  I wish I wouldn't have waited so long to buy one.

    Niice shooting.  Its always fun to compete against people shooting service pistols with the P3AT.  People are always amazed at the accuracy you can get out of this little gun with its little sights.

    I'm in the 250-300 round range with only one failure to eject when a friend limp wristed it.

    200-300 rounds of FMJ before the first HP ... it will depend on your particular gun, grip style and grip strength as to what works for you so try several.

    And ... welcome to the board.
