    First post.

    I am a big gun guy and like the .45 and 10MM. Until this forum, I would have laughed at the thought of a .380. But, after spending many nights on the forum, I have decided to buy one. Luckily, I ran in to a post for a lightly used P-3AT for $200 which includes a couple of boxes of ammo and a holster. I will buy it tomorrow.

    Thanks for all of the great posts from all of you and I intend to stay with this forum after I get my gun.

    Great price! Be sure to let us know what you think. I assume you're buying it for plinking beer cans at the lake? ;)

    a p3 in the pocket beats a whole arsnel at home in the safe. Enjoy, be safe, let us know what you think of your new toy.

    :'( :'( :'(

    It didn't happen. I tried to buy it today and learned that it was sold yesterday. The bad part is that I called yesterday to buy and he said that he couldn't sell it today. Oh well... I am back on the hunt to find another one. May just order of gunbroker.com to save time.

    But you should know that the P3at is designed for light concealed defense.

    Otherwise I would not choose it.
    I had to make many tweaks and mods on my P32 to make
    it acceptable to me, even for light concealed defense.

    I am considering a P3at now because I learned how
    to make it better from my P32 experience.

    Just FYI.

    I'd wager that he was offered more money.

    I would have paid more.. I just wasn't given the opportunity.

    I found one locally for $299 new which sounds fair. I think this will be the best fit ( a P-3AT ) that is because the PF-9 is just too big for my pocket. I have read that some people can make it work, but i couldn't.

    $299 for blued. I plan on getting the nickle-plating unless I can find a HC.
