I found this on the first google hit
"SAAMI drop-testing at the H. P. White labs, as well as drop tests to military specifications at the factory passing all with flying colors" at BNET

Hey I know the P3AT doesnt have any internal safeties...

my question is, would it discharge if dropped?
It does have an internal safety. It has a hammer-block that holds the hammer away from the firing pin at all times (until you pull the trigger of course). This makes it VERY drop safe.

I'm presuming the OP was asking because of dropped on the muzzle issues with the virtually identical LCP Ruger.
While I've never seen solid evidence of a problem with either gun, it seems odd Ruger would organize a huge recall for no reason whatsoever.

Since the P-3AT doesn't have a firing pin safety I assume it could fire if dropped hard enough right on the muzzle. I think it would have to be a very hard drop though to overcome the firing pin spring and still ignite the primer.
