    Well...hehe after bad go with the pf9, I gingerly steped into the p3at.

    Ruger lcp was sitting on the counter with a guy. he was looking at both. took the lcp. and that was the last one. lasted an hour they said.

    Anyways, I wanted the p32, but they didn't have one...guy was talking some real smack on the p32. all crap according to this site...but hey I want a small kel tec.

    So p3at. Didn't clean it. Just went to the back range. 50 rounds of magtech fmj.

    I put up a paper 3 inches wide by 5 inches long at 5 yards. first 4 shots I didn't hit it. I was annoyed. oh great.

    I adjusted. hit every single time after that. actually hit in the same hole. A lot!

    The trigger is significantly lighter then the pf9.

    I don't care what the manual says. way lighter. haha maybe I am wrong though :)

    I misjudge how long the trigger was the first shot. i though it had clicked off and thought it was broken. haha.

    Anyways. I am satisfied.
    :) what more can you ask

    Hi Wild Cat,

      I see you're a "Full Member" so what took you so long to come around to the P3AT?  :)

      Best of luck with your new gun. Sorry that you had a bad go with the PF9 but did you finnally get it working?

    Take care...

    They're great little guns and hard to beat for the money. What flavor did you get?

    My favorite thing about my P3at is the trigger.
    I sold a P-11 to get it.
    The P-11 has a real long heavy pull.
    My P3at is still long but light and with a definite break at the end.
    I may have to buy a matching P32 someday.

    thanks all.

    Flavor: blued. They didn't have stainless.

    what took so long...caliber. I admit it. but I will be danged. for the past hour sitting here I never even thought about it, and its in my pocket!

    PF-9, no i didn't get it working. I am of the opinion that these require some more work. People reported (like myself) all good after only a couple hundred rounds. this is when my started doing everything wrong. everything. Never could hit anything anyways.

    All and all very happy
