    I love my little P-3at, but man I hated the  hand pain created by the kick coupled with the darn sharp knurling on the grip.  I bought myself some KTaddon grips

    I bought the rubber grip and the stick on pads.  It is amazing the difference in the gun, absolutely  100% better.  My only complaint is that the rubber grip is a bit thin and when I draw the gun from the holster it flaps under my thumb, but no other complaints.

    This is now hands down my number 1 pocket carry gun, and has now officially replaced my seecamp .32

    I had the same issues. Hated shooting the damn thing and figured it was only for when I needed it but i also wanted to be proficent with it so I took the pain. That all changed when I put the extension on the magazine and the Hogue grips on. I put the grip upside down, it fits and feels much better.

    the gun is now a pleasure to shoot and can go through 100 rounds ( if I can find them ) with no problems

    Cool find! I'm going to make my own out of a strip of recoil pad.
    If it don't work... I know where to go!!

    I got the ktaddons grip pads and cover several months ago. It worked great, but sure looked an awful lot like a piece of bike innertube and two small pieces of craft foam. If I had known that was what I was getting I would have made the same thing myself. It definitely helps the grip though.

    Same here. Now that I know what it is, I will make my own. I already make my own inner tube grips for P32 aand P3AT. The craft foam underneath the tube makes it even better. Plus, by doing it myself, I can customize the size of the foam pads to my neeeds.
