Today I stopped in at the LGS where I recently bought a P-3AT after weeks on a waiting list for any and all KelTec models, and I found a hard chromed P-11 lying in the showcase. I paid $269.99 for my P-3AT just 3 weeks ago, and he now has a HC P-11 tagged at $259.99. My original plan had been to buy a 9mm either a P-11 or P-9 whichever came in first, but after waiting for a while I decided to take whatever KT came in first and that resulted in buying the P-3AT. His helper says it's priced lower because KTs are easier to get from the factory distributor now and demand has slacked off. My first thought was to try haggling out a trade-in deal with my almost new blued P-3AT traded in on his HC P-11. The owner was very busy with other customers, and while waiting I decided not to jump into something until I thought it over. Now I am undecided, I have bought a set of scarce .380 reloading dies and have scrounged up approx 150 empty .380 brass cases, and I have an order of 250hard to find round nose .355" diameter bullets in shipment. The bullets would work in the P-11, but I would have to locate another batch of brass for the 9mm and buy another set of 9x18mm dies if I can find a dealer somewhere on the net with a set in stock. What to do, make do with the more concealable .380 for pocket carry, or lose some bucks on the .380 dies and brass and then lose some more bucks on a swap-out deal with the LGS? As my thread title says, I can't decide. Anyways, it's very late and my mind is too sleepy to make a good decision, so I'll just wait and see if anybody has some good advice by tomorrow afternoon. The P-11 probably won't stay in that showcase more than a day or two because the shop was crowded with customers and looky-loos when I was there for an hour or so this afternoon, and most of them appeared to be serious buyers. BTW, the LGS also got in a shipment of .380 Gold Dot ammo today, but I didn't buy any because I didn't know if I would be trading in the P-3AT. I probably should have bought a couple of boxes anyway since they would be easy to resell if it turns out that I don't need them, although the helper guy said ammo is becoming more available too. I wish somebody would tell Walmart that. No WM I have been in for the past 2 or 3 months has had any popular caliber handgun ammo in stock, and the clerks don't know when or even if any will come in.
