Let me first say HELLO to all you fellow KT enthusiasts! I am the proud owner of two KT's, a G17 Sub-2000 and now a black/blued P3AT. I've lurked here for some time, and gotten quite a bit of useful information. I finally got a chance to take my new P3AT out and felt compelled to post a report. Prior to this range session, I did a basic field strip, just like I would on any other new pistol. Cleaned well, and gave it a light oiling. I've read a bit about the fluff and buff, and honestly thought that this trial run would be disappointing, and that I'd have to eventually break down and perform the F&B. I bought the gun about a month ago, and cleaned it right away. Since then, I have been carrying it (pretty much every day) unloaded to break in my new pocket holster. Yesterday, I had some free time and it wasn't raining, so I headed out to the woods. My plan was as follows: 1. Break-in with 50 rounds of any ammo. 2. Disassemble, clean, lube, reassemble. 3. Shoot 50 rounds of brand "A", jot down amounts of FTF's and FTE's, 4. Disassemble, clean, lube, reassemble 5. Repeat this process up to about 200 or 250 rounds (4 or 5 different ammo brands) to compare reliability. Here's how it actually went: 1. Aguila 95 gr FMJ: shot 50 rounds, had 3 FTF's (all in the first 25 rounds), and no FTE's. 2. At this point, I decided things were going pretty well, and decided not to clean the gun. Ran 50 rounds of Remington UMC 95 gr FMJ's. 0 FTF's, and 0 FTE's. 3. Again, didn't clean the gun. Ran 50 more flawless rounds of S&B 92 gr FMJ's. 4. Didn't clean the gun. 50 rounds of Speer Lawman 95 gr TMJ's were next. Had 1 FTF, which may have been my fault. The slide didn't go all the way into battery, but all it took was a bump with the heel of my hand to move the slide all the way forward. No FTE's. 5. Ran 24 rounds of Magtech 95 gr FMJ's with no malfunctions. 6. Ran 20 rounds of Cor Bon 90 gr JHP's, again with no malfunctions. At that point, I had to leave the woods because I was getting eaten alive by mosquitos. But I had seen enough! To sum it up, I fired roughly 250 rounds through a brand new P3AT that had been riding around in my pocket for a month, never cleaned it during the test, and had NO failures to eject, and only 4 failures to feed, 3 of which were in the first 25 rounds! Needless to say I am EXTREMELY pleased with this little pistol! A few comments: 1. My hand is sore today. No biggie. 2. Those Cor Bon rounds are quite impressive. Substantially more muzzle flash and perceived recoil than the practice ammo, as well as significantly more damage downrange. 3. The recoil overall is pretty stout, but not uncomfortable. I will admit that I have a hard time maintaining a correct grip when shooting with one hand. Overall, I can't say enough about this gun. Thanks, Kel Tec!
