    I am pricing the P-3AT a local store for $318.00, is this a good price? Also, he said that if I order the gun that I get whatever comes in... I am wanting the chrome. Is this true?

    That's high even for a Hard Chromed,
    Very high for a Parkerized,
    and WAY overpriced for a blued.

    Depending on location, the prices I've seen lately are about;
    $240 - 270 for blued
    $250 - 290 for parkerized
    $280 - 320 for hard chrome

    I've never heard of charging the same price for all three types, but it's their shop and they can run it as they please.

    It's like buying a car for a set price and then accepting what ever model the dealer wants to give you. ::)

    I got mine at a gunshow for $269 plus the governor's cut. It is a sweet little parkerized baby. I was in a sporting goods store here in Northeastern Mississippi and saw a pair of them in there for the same price, different colors. IMHO, me thinks the $318 is a tad salty.
  6. With the 3AT availability right now... it is a sellers market.

    I have bought 3 of these guns for myself, and have been with friends at gun shows for 4 more. I have never paid more than $250 out the door for a blued.

    I recall paying a tad overr $300 out the door for my Chromed Navy Grip.

    BUT...aint she purty?

    Well, I thank everyone for the information... I will be searching around more here in north MS. I don't want to be drug under the bus here but I have been looking at the new Ruger LCP also.
  8. ir... I am in North Louisiana... so I would think the price should not be that much of a spread between your location and mine.

    Price is relevant to what part of the country you are in. I bought my hard chrome at a gun show in south Texas in May 07 for $290 (before tax and extra mag). Always shop around.

    CDNN has them for $219 in the latest catalog, but you'd need to add shipping & transfer costs (unless you're connected).

    No, I have seen them as low as $270 here in AZ just a few weeks ago and in stock in Tucson.

    That price is way too high. I paid $245 + 7% tax, and got a free box of ammo (Gold Dots) in the deal.

    Take a look at the following link. If this pistol is still available, the price for the package is very attractive, IMHO.

    Well, I went back in and the seller had them at $275.00!! Alot better. Still would like to compare to the LCP before purchase.

    Speaking of the LCP, my local northern AZ gun shop owner told me he got two of them in on Monday (RUGER is in northern AZ) and he sold both of them within hours.
    They also might be hard to come by for a while until the newness wears off. You'll probably have to be patient if you want to compare both KELTEC and RUGER side by side...

    I picked up my P3AT for 230.00 with a box of WWB and an Uncle Mike's pocket holster...out the door price.

    Yesterday I saw a new SUB 2000 for 319.00 at my local gun shop so I think you should keep shopping for a while.. These little guns are a hot commodity right now and the low supply has raised the price. The biggest hassle as you have seen, is that the shops are just selling whatever they can get...if you want a special order your wait is even longer. Unless you get lucky!

    Good luck with your hunt.
