    i live in melbourne florida which is about a half hour drive from cocoa, i bought my 380 put about 40 rounds through it and it jammed on the last 2 bullets every time i reloaded it to 6+1 config then i noticed the grip basically ballooned out on the left side near the pin that holds the slide on. so i drove over to kel-tec said my gun is broke and they asked me what color grip i wanted and i got navy blue =P  and they got me a new grip and new pin and even polished my feed ramp and cleaned/deburred the whole gun. then they test fired 21 rounds thru it to make sure all was well and gave it back to me. it took from start to finish from me walking in the door at kel-tec to walking out with my new fixed gun approximately 16 minutes. i love kel tec, by the way i purchased, fired and had it fixed all in the same day lol its never had a problem since awesome little gun

    How about the nickname "Bruiser?" You know, black and blue? ;D

    I haven't seen a navy grip with a blued slide. That really looks sharp! I wonder if I called up KT it they would sell me a navy grip. I'll check their website and see if they are for sale.

    how 'bout that for customer service! I have had more than my share of problems with my P3. Every time Kel-Tec makes it right. They've won me over with their customer service. Outstanding.

    Welcome supmatch,
    Nice that you live so close to Kel-Tec. A bit too far for me to drive there, :D

    Let's not overlook that KTOG service ... notice how TxCajun edited the post to add img tags for everyone to enjoy a gander at "Bruiser" without having to touch a clickety-pop! ;D

    well found supmatch! wish i was that close to the factory. you're is fairly close in color to my little constant buddy, just got stuck paying a TAD bit more for mine.

    anyhow - glad you've got her up and running again, now shoot it like you stole it!

    Welcome to the group! That's a good looking gun you've got there and the belt clip is a nice touch.

    And I wouldn't expect anything less from KT :cool:
