First things first - I am a huge Kel-Tec fan and definitely dont have to be convinced that it's a wonderful design and a great little pistol. But, I have had a run of bad luck with them today that I thought I'd share here and ask for some advice. I had a P32 that was my front pocket companion everywhere I went for 3 years. My preacher, (yeah, little country churches here in the backwoods of Mississippi still have preachers that pack heat in the pulpit), he wanted to buy it from me real bad on a day when I also happened to need the money really bad, and I sold it to him. Immediately sick with regret, I knew it wouldn't be long til I was back in the saddle again and toting a pocket Kel-Tec. Today was the big day - I went down to the local gun shop and picked up a new one; only this time I opted for the 3AT. As soon as I got the pistol home and out of the box I noticed that the mag release button wasnt sticking out very far. I initially just thought it was a variant feature from the 32 to the 3AT, but it turned out that the mag would come out without pushing the button if I gave it the tiniest little tug, and a fully loaded magazine would jump back out immediately after being pushed in. The catch just wouldnt engage and "click" the magazine in place. So, back to the gun shop I went and .... I was out the door with an identical P3AT that had a properly functioning mag catch. No big thang, really - just kind of a bummer. As soon as I got in the truck I loaded a mag with Federal Hydra-Shok and attempted to rack one into the chamber. When I let the slide go, it didn't move a millimeter - it was stuck in the open position, unsuccessfully attempting to force a bullet up the feed ramp and into the chamber. "Hmm, I've read about this happening on KTOG..." thought I as I racked it back again - this time successfully chambering the round. "Looks like I'll be doing one of those KTOG Fluff and Buffs tonight, whatever that is." I've tried three times since then to chamber a round from a full magazine, each time having the same result. I never had this problem with my P32, so I never did anything but clean the pocket lint and dirt out of it about once a week by opening up the action and ****ing into it. [Nah.... I've just been wanting to say that ever since I saw that MadOgre dude say it about his AKs.] But seriously, I never had the problem before. So here is the point of my unnecessarily lengthy post - could someone please be kind enough to give me a "do these things, and do them in this order" list of break-in chores that I need to do in order to get this little bad boy in working condition? I know there is a ton of info on here already, but honestly I'm just not real sure where to start, and I dont want to do anything out of order that may wind up being a mistake. Thanks in advance - Resurgam!
