    [​IMG][​IMG]I have to admit that after my first trip to the range I am feeling real good about the p3-AT. What does the -AT stand for anyway? The plate in the pic was from about 21 feet out (7 good paces). I think I hit it 7 out of 7.Im not sure if the top bull hit is a double or not. I was about 50% on the plate from 50 yards out which is better than my Taurus 85 usually gets me. I had 2 misfeeds though. One with the Speer HPs and one with the Blazer FMJs. I can accept that after 120 rounds fired with only an out of the box cleaning and lube. As you can see in the second pic the finish on my slide took a beating. That too is not a problem as I bought this gun to use and not to look at. So to sum it up I am impressed and will be carrying this tonight with the Winchester ammo. I also have a pf-9 which is at Kel-Tec. Sent back after only about 50 rounds through due to misfeed and mag catch issues. If first impressions are what they say thay are, the 9 mil will be in the safe when it gets back and the 380 in my pocket! Brian

    How on earth could the slide get damaged in that spot? :eek:

    Good shooting there

    It is a little thing, but could you shrink the pic so it isn't larger than the normal screen

    Glad your P-three eighty (3AT) is a good one!

    My gun tends to get those marks on the slide also. They are from the brass hitting the slide during ejection.

    I found it comes of my parkerized slide with CLP and a little rubbing with a cloth.

    Excellent Shooting!!! Impressive. I, too have had good luck with my P3. It's a good shooter, enough that I would place my life in it's hands... When I'm out with the family, I prefer my PM9, K40, or even my Kimber Pro CDP 2, but that's just preference... I picked-up a PF-9 last week and can't wait to get it out -- just have to wait another week for some range time. Hopefully it will be a good one out of the box.

    Anyway, welcome fellow newbie!

    Enjoy your new toy! :)

      It's not damaged, the brass mark will clean right off. From the position of it though, I wonder: Is part number 115 (Ejector) in its little slot?
