I just qualified with my P3AT yesterday for a back up weapon using American Eagle ammo. I have qualified with it before and have used AE, S&B, and Blazer for that purpose. They all gave me cycling problems. It fires Hydra Shok and Cor Bon (which I use for carrying) without a problem. I had several FTE yesterday, usually on the next to the last round. It's not a magazine issue because it happened with both magazines. I guess it's like a car that only takes premium gas. Unfortunately, since I carry it more than anything else on and off duty, the malfunctions have given me less than a warm fuzzy feeling and I am considering going to a snub nose revolver. They just don't disappear in a pocket like the P3AT.
