    Long time lurker. Figured I would toss in my first post since I just began a new addiction. This is my 2G P3AT. It has an advanced fluff and buff. I'm also sending it off for a trigger job to lighten this damn thing and possibly a porting on the bbl and slide. Painted sights, Bersa FP's and a clipdraw round it out.

    I've been up for the last three hours finishing the latest mods to my home armory/workshop and I figured I'd try out another new purchase.

    After sending off my beloved G26 and G34 to Wendell Tactical Concepts for some stipple work, I figured I'd try to learn the secret.

    Well, I think I got it figured out. Stiplling is addicting. Big time. Funny thing is, I can get paid to do it locally. Aftere seeing my duty G34, there are several local cops asking to get it done. I gave out every WTC business card I had and continue to bragg for Gary because his work is phenominal, but for the select few folks around here that refuse to send their weapons in the mail, looks like I have some work on the side. ;D

    Well, what do you guys think? I started off on some Glock base plates to get my footing. I'm not gonna give away Gary's secret, but lets just say I went the cheaper route. He has a really nice setup. Not so much here, but I'll make do.

    After growing some balls, I pushed the Glock base plates to the side and broke out my KT P3AT. All I can say is wow, what a friggen difference.

    I'm gonna shoot it later tonight at work and a range report bump will follow. Thanks for the space folks!

    Took me about 2 hours of painstaking work. Anyhoo, here are some pics...

    My baseplate is on the right, with a WTC baseplate to the left to compare...



    With a KT clipdraw installed...


    With an extra mag... both mags sporting Bersa baseplates..


    In my custom made pocket holster which I created out of a KT OE case...

    Nice work and that KT pouch-turned-holster is the first I've seen. :cool:

    Like many modes of art, that looks like pain staking time consuming work to me. Let us know how much easier it is to hold onto. They look nice.

    I like the pouch turned holster. You should post some instructions on how to do that.

    I really like your holster. The Stiplling looks good on the glock but it makes the P3-AT look like it has grown hair ;) Just my opion.

    Looks pretty cool to me. Nice work!

    I am curious how stippling the forward part of the frame affects draw.

    Looks great IMHO. And, hard to imagine a better gripping surface. I'll bet that thing sticks like glue to your hand when you draw. I've been using powdered rosin on my Hogue rubber grip to achieve the same effect. Needed that extra thinkness that the Hogue provides for my big hands. Tell us all about the trigger job when it returns :cool:

    I think you did an excellent job! Maybe it's just me, but doing my own mods makes me appreciate the amount of work that goes into them that much more. The pouch is kinda like the icing on the cake to me ;)

    When these first came out, someone on a blog mentioned making a case holster. I couldn't find it just now on a google...

    Thank you sir.

    Much easier to hang onto. I put 100 rounds of Fed. HSHP through it at my range/armory tonight after doing my officers yearly Glock inspections. I liken it to having skateboard tape all over it.

    I'll get started on it tonight while work is slow. I think I have enough pics saved in photobukkat. I'll put it into a new thread for you guys.

    Thanks much. Draw is from my III-A balistic vest, or that holster y'all see and is unaffected by the texturizing of the stipple work.

    Here is a pic. What kinda F-body you have? ;)
