Today I found a p3AT in my local classified news paper. So I called the guy, who said that it was not for sale, but he would trade it for a revolver. To make a long story short, I gave him my Taurus Ultra Lite .38 Special and two boxes of ammo for his only slightly used P3AT .380. Also came with a box of .380 ammo and a box of 9mm ammo, as I have a PF-9 also. It was still in the KT hard case with the owners manual and the little bag with the locks in it. He said only about 50 rounds have been shot through it, and I cant see hardly any wear. It is a Gen II gun. I shot it a little today (ammo is scarce) with no issues. Do you guys think I came out good on this trade? I think so...

Also I found some .380 ammo in my area today for $32 per box (50ct. FMJ) and $38 for Cor Bon HP's (20ct.) Thats crazy!!!

I don't like to bust balls, but I don't think I woulda made the trade myself. But also, I LOVE my taurus 85. And as you stated with the prices and availability problem of .380 I'd rather spend $20 on 50 .38's than $30 on 50 .380's. You feel me knockin? Just my opinion. I do know the .380 is an awesome little gun, so enjoy!

If your happy, that's all that matters. Not what we may think.

Knowing what I know now, I would also trade. I qualified with my Taurus 38, but didn't like to carry it, to hard to conceal, and it pulled on my pants. I forget I have my P3at with me, all the time, but ammo is hard to get. got 2 boxes of 50 blazers the other day, for 12.95, first I've been able to get in 6 mo. Don't like it much tho. I've still got 2 boxes of Hornady Critical Defense, for carry. Jim <><

What the others already said.

If your satisfied then it was an awesome trade. Sounds like the p3at is one of the more recent newer ones, with the trigger lock and all.

FWIW the tirgger lock is a cylindrical piece of plastic that inserts into the trigger guard behind the trigger & a small padlock that holds it in place.  Standard equipment since day one.


BTW, sounds like a decent trade to me.

Yup if your happy thats the main thing! I just bought a P3AT 2 weeks ago it only had 7 shots thru it. I got the gun,250 rounds of ammo and the lil zipper case for 195.00 from a buddy that has very big hands and didn't like it at all so I got a good deal I think!

Actually, my 3at (bought this month) had two pieces of plastic that snapped together and had a screw that locks them in. The head of the screw takes a special key.

My PF-9 came with the lock you mentioned which I bought last year.
