I took my new P3AT to the range for the first time Saturday. I did not do the Fluff & Buff. All I did was clean it, oil it and put grease on the slides. I did blue the barrel because I did not like the look of the raw metal look. I shoot 200 rounds of FMJ through it with no problems. The recoil was no problem at all, but the checkering on the grips hurts after 100 rounds. I also need to put some bright paint on the sights (I could not see them).
