After eight months of flawless performance my trusty P3AT died. I went to the range to practice and shot my 9mm guns and then pulled the P3AT from the pocket holster where it resides daily. When I went to change the magazine I found the hammer spring broken. I was surprised. This gun had been perfect from day one. Probably had 12-16 trips to the range. Not sure how many rounds probably 500 - 800. Called Kel Tec and a new spring is on the way. Just don't know exactly how I feel about this. No way to know why it broke, but I sure am glad I wasn't pulling it out for self defense. Makes 2PP sound better and better.
