    welcome to ktog.
  5. WELCOME kmunch!

    YES.. IMHO...There is a lot to learn.

    This is what I do........YMMV............

    1) I never consider my guns reliable enough to bet my life on them until I got at least 200- 300 rounds down range with out any troubles.

    2) I never carry a gun in my pocket without a proper holster.

    AS far as the 3AT and 3AT clones........ tons of information and trouble shooting tips can be found here on KTOG.

    Oh pics!

    An excellent plan. I put 200 FMJ through mine before I ever tried a JHP. You can probably cut that corner if you have a Dremel and polish the feed ramp.

    But, don't cut corners, always apply extra care.

    Welcome to the group! Sounds like your gun is doing fine in it's break in period. Most people recommend 200-300 rounds before carrying as long as there are no problems but I have carried mine since the day I bought it. That day 50 rounds went down the pipe with no problems and it became my primary carry gun 90% of the time. Now I'm up here in D.C. most of the time and can't carry. Enjoy your freedoms!
