Here is the short story: I bought my HC P3AT about a year or so ago when I lived in IL. I had always wanted one even though I couldn't legally carry there. Fast forward to Jan. 2008...I move back to KS (where my wife and I are originally from). After a 6 mos residency requirement is met and the waiting period to receive my permit after applying, I finally can carry this little gem. In the meantime, my wife and I bought his and hers Kahr CW9's since I couldn't find a HC PF9. I've carried the Kahr a couple of times, but the P3AT is always in my pocket. I've even found myself putting the Kahr back in the safe when I come home for lunch and grabbing the Kel-Tec. I've added +1 extensions to both of my mags as well as a grip sleeve from sprinter. Now if I could just get a metal mag catch, I'd be a happy camper!
