    Hi everyone, my name is Marvin (Muddy). I just purchased a P3AT for deep concealed carry. I can't wait to shoot it. I just found this board so I figured I would sign up and say hi :)

    Well, I actually do have a question. This is only my second handgun. My primary is a Smith and Wesson SW9VE that I love. I only get to target shoot once or twice a month. Is the KelTec the quality of gun that target shooting a couple of times a month will be OK? I mean do they hold up pretty well? I'm not talking marathon shoots either. We shoot so many different weapons that any given pistol will only have 50-100 rounds shot through it in an afternoon..

    Welcome to KTOG Muddy!

    KT states that the life of their P3AT is about 6000 rounds I think. While they are not meant to be range toys it is perfectly okay to put 50-100 rounds through them every couple of weeks or so just to maintain a high level of accuracy with the pistol. If anything breaks or malfunctions in any way KT will replace it at no cost to you up to and including the whole gun. Shoot with confidence!

    Keep your range at 5 to 7 yards and you won't be disappointed. Longer range and it may be hard to hit p.o.a. My p3 at ten yards shoots low and right of p.o.a. Happy shooting and good luck. Tom :)

    Thanks guys.

    Well, I got the call from the sheriff's office today. My carry permit has been issued and is ready to pick up. That was only a three week wait, about half the time they told me. So I can go pick up my little KelTec this week and maybe squeez off a few rounds this weekend.

    Plus this is going to make it way easier to transport my Smith and Wesson to the range without all the worry of making it visable.
