    Me likey!

    Now, critical question...KTWM, are you around, and can you let us know if this being marked "+P" means unhealthy for the P3AT? Will it void the warranty? Even if not, is it likely to damage the gun or cause problems?

    My P3AT (2nd gen) manual says:  "The P-3AT will accept +P ammunition, however not with continuous use."

    I talked to the folks over at Buffalo Bore. They own and shoot a P3AT ... And they talk about how it works in a P3AT on thier web site

    The problem is (this is the same language as in the PF9 manual btw) there is no such thing as .380 +P, officially. Assumedly .380 +P is anything loaded above the standard, and there is no SAAMI pressure limit or anything for .380 +P, because there are no SAAMI definitions of .380 +P.

    That's what would make me nervous about it, and I'd want to hear from the horses mouth (KT) if this would be considered bad ammo. I wouldn't anticipate the same issues as the MagSafe stuff because it isn't wildly unbalanced with a light weight projectile and a super high velocity, but I'd want to have their express approval.

    Nicneufeld; I understand your concerns. That is one reason I will probably stick to Cor Bon or Federal HST.
