Initially I bought the little kel-tec for light summer carry and other times when a larger gun might cause a problem. I could carry a Glock 23 IWB no problem and also carried a snubnose .38 which was even easier. They all have their pros and cons but the P3at is becoming my favorite. Here's why:
1. Lightest, smallest and by far the most comfortable.
2. 7 shots vs. 5 in the snubnose.
3. Easier to draw since I can have my hand on it in a pocket (Here, take my wallet ;)).
4. Laser is an added advantage, plus it actually lights up the target some in pitch dark.
5. I feel safer with one in the chamber than with the Glock.

I know there are many great carry guns out there so I'd love to hear other members comment on them, especially in relation to the P3at.

[quote author=Haku link=1235621300/60#71 date=1243195012]Well I don't have a Glock 26, I just have the Glock 23. I read somewhere that I could by a 9mm and 357 sig barrel to fit the Glock 23. Has anyone done something like that? The barrel is 99.00 is it worth it??
Haku,

You only need to do the math to find out $ wise if it is worth getting an after market barrel. I don't know the price of .357 Sig but I'd guess it is more expensive than 9mm. You would probably pay for the barrel after shooting maybe 500 rounds of 9mm in place of your .40 S&W - just guessing as I've not done the math. Also, if the after market barrel has regular rifling you'd be able to shoot cheaper hard cast bullets.

Another route you could go - and this is something I'm considering for my 26 - is to buy a .22lr conversion kit. Allthough it is ~ $250.00 shooting .22s is really cheap and the payback comes quickly ifin you do a lot of shooting. Also, makes your gun a lot less intimidating for a novice to shoot.

Yet another way to go is to get a quality "Glock 23 or 26" gas blowback airsoft pistol. I get a lot of practice using mine. e.g. http://www.airsplat.com/Items/GP-KJW-G23-B.htm

Take care...

I've done the math to swap barrels from 40s&w to 9mm and without being a reloader, and after purchasing two 9mm magazines it would be something like 2,000 rounds before it begins to pay off IIRC. Just not practical for me. It may be a great idea for others, especially if you have other 9mm weapons.
