    Hello KTOG!  Great site.
    Just picked up a P3at and took it to the range. At first at 7 yds I completely missed the paper. Then made adjustment and heres a pic of the shots. Happy with it, being so small and all.
    Ignore the ruger..

    Twice though, the mag dropped loose on me.  :-?
    Need a new mag catch I guess. Hard to install? Cant tell by looking.

    Welcome! Nice report.

    You may be hitting the mag release with your thumb, check that first. Installing a new one is simple, couple of minutes. Do a search for lots of info on replacing it.

    Hey thanks. Yeah, I do hit it with my thumb, or I was. Now though, I can just pull the mag free easily without pushing the release.

    Either it's not locked in or your mag catch is shot. Call KT and they'll send you one. Directions are posted on this site.
