Hi, Picked up a new PF9 a couple of weeks ago at a gun show and I really like it, but my wife says it is worse than our .38 Taurus snubby for recoil. Went to the gun show yesterday and picked up a new P-3AT (the durn "green" plastic, but it does have the Parkerized slide like I wanted) Seems to shoot fine with only 1 failure to extract and that was with the 1st round of my proposed carry ammo of Ranger 124 gr. (about all theself defense .380 ammo left at the show), the following 25 or so were fine. I noticed with both the Ranger and practice JHP's (winchester white box and PMC) that this thng ejects almost sraight up! My gun club indoor range master wasn't real happy with the chips I took out of the accoustic ceiling tiles which are about 18" above our firing positions. Also, most of the brass has a preety good dent in the lip area. Anyone else notice any of this with the 3AT?
