Funny thing...I was introduced to the LCP by a store owner who carries one daily. I wanted one, but he had a waiting list, and no one in town had one, so I started looking online. There I discovered the P3, and how the LCP was a copy that was still going through growing pains. I went to a local pawn shop, and there was a P3. I bought it, and have never looked back. I loved it so much that 2 months later I got rid of my other 9mm, and bought a PF-9. Now I carry one or both daily, and recommend them every chance I get. great products by an American company that stands behind them. Glad that no one had an LCP when I caught the bug.
