    I thought I could quit at any time....,well, I now have my third Kel Tec, a P3at.
    I brought it home to do a thorough clean and lube then headed to my favorite
    indoor range. I took the PF9 and P11 along too.
    The new P3 performed very well with the limited ammo supply I was able to
    round up. The photo below shows the first 12 rounds that went down range at
    five yards. There were no functioning surprises and recoil is a non issue.
    The trigger came out of the box very smooth and manageable.
    Now, if I could just find some more .380 ammo.

    Good for you! I've only got 2 Kel-Tecs and they're both P3ATs. Really would like to hear from you sometime down the road to find out which Kel-Tec you have gets the most carry.

    Take care...

    Number three ?
    It's safe to say you are officially addicted. There is no known cure, and slinging brass widens the smile.
    The KT bug bites again. :cool:

    Edit - Don't want to be considered an enabler, but
    This is alot of fun for the money. Your girls will understand.  ;D

    Thanks for the link JB-Norcal. I get a no access to this page error message.  
    I probably don't have enough posts yet.
    Incidentally, .380 is beginning to appear in Phoenix.  I was able to buy 2 WWB at Lone Wolf
    and a total of 4 at Cabelas late last week.  Things are lookin up.

    Where were you aiming on the target? I only sacrificed 25 rounds from my only box of ammo and I hit mostly about 6 inches low at 7 yards. I had maybe three where I wanted them to go. I was surprised that there didn't seem to have much recoil and the trigger wasn't too bad either.

    I can relate... I just bought my 2nd Sat.   A 1G P-3AT, to go with my P-F9.  I took mine home did a thorough clean, and quick F & B since it had only about 25 rounds through it.  I then began trying to find ammo... I called 20+ stores and finally was able to round up 100 rounds of ammo. I wanted to shoot it, but spent so much time finding ammo I ran out of time to shoot... Well I guess it will have to wait to get a chance to test it out.

    My point of aim was approximately the center of the left most group of 3.

    Ha! I've bought three guns so far - and 2/3 of them are Kel-Tecs.

    Got my eye out now for a P-3AT. I love the PF-9, but even the PF-9 is a little bulky for summertime carry. I've got the bug, and I am justifying new acquisitions ;)

    Welcome to the fold glssmp, and congrats on the new addition.

    The P3AT is my daily carry also, but by no means my only Kel-Tec.

    So far I have:

    Sub2000 .40
    And waiting with bated breath to add the "Hammer"-RFB. :cool:
