    Anyone try this? Obviously no one is going to win any matches with a p3at, but trying would be fun.
    I've tried it a few times and found it humbling, but practicing with what you carry makes sense.
    Has anyone else tried it?

    I have scored very high with the PF9 several times...I would think the only problem you may have is the reload and the steel poppers - otherwise go for it and do well!

    I tried the pf9 in idpa for a bit. I liked it, but was using wolf with those hard russian primers.
    A few ftf and I sold the gun although it wasn't really the guns fault.
    Not a bad gun for idpa though.

    p3at may not win you a competition but it is great practice.

    I have used my P3AT in bug gun matches and have done really well with it. Unfortuneately, I won't be able to shoot anymore as I now have an Amalaser on it and that is against the rules. :'(

    I wonder when the IDPA people are going to realize that real CCW people have lasers on their guns!
