    I just purchased a back up/ummer carry to my regular cary (Sig 226 or 220).  I decided on the Kel-Tec P3-AT for its size and great reviews from this forum.  I look forward to getting it and trying it out next weekend.  I will post a range report next week.  I ordered a Galco inside the pocket holster on the advise of a friend that has one.

    Any other accesories needed???

    Thanks all.

    Congratulations. I initially had reservations about buying a p3,but have had no problems and love mine.

    Blued, Parked, or HC?

    What color grip?

    <- Notice I changed my avatar on KTOG from my G26 to my P3AT.

    A second P3AT.

    Seriously though, I recommend Jack Fuselier's nickel plating for non HC KTs as a must accessory.

    So I guess you really do need a second P3 while the first goes in for plating. :D

    Slip-On Grips for the Kel-Tec P-3AT


    Hogue, Pachmayr, Glaser, and Butler Creek make slip-on grips that fit the P-3AT. They are all a bit different. Some may need trimming. AGRIP makes a pre-cut stick-on grip.

    Hogue HandAll, Jr
    These have finger grooves, are thinner at the front and back straps, have slight palm swells, and are textured on the sides.
    http://www.brownells.com/aspx/NS/store/productdetail.aspx?p=6938&s=

    Pachmayr, Model 4
    These have finger grooves, are the same thickness all around, and are textured all over.
    http://www.pachmayr.com/pachmayr/slipons.htm

    Glaser
    These have no finger grooves, are the same thickness all around, and are smooth all over.
    http://www.aglaser.com/grips/

    Butler Creek, Small (no longer manufactured but may still be available)
    These have no finger grooves, the same thickness all around and a bit thinner than Glaser and Pachmayr, and are textured on the sides.

    AGRIP

    Or you can make your own:
    One good thing about doing it this way is that the material is thin and you can experiment by trying a different number of layers. Some bike tubes have ribbed areas, so you can make a ribbed or smooth grip.
    I got a couple of tubes free - went to a local bike shop and asked for any bad ones they were throwing away.
    The 20 x 1.75 - 2.125 worked best for me.

    I bought the grip pads and grip cover from AG Laser http://www.aglaser.com/grips/for my P3AT. It has made a world of difference! The gun is now 'fun' to shoot. Shot 100 rounds today with the P3AT with no problems and would have shot more but wanted to shoot my 1911's some. Before I bought the pads/grip I could only shoot 50 rounds before the gun would wear the skin off the 'web' area of my hand. I used 3 of the pads on the P3AT (1 in front and 2 in back) and used the leftover 1 on my PF9. I bought them based on a few recommendations on the forum here. If you do a search I'm sure you'll be able to find the posts.

    The grip cover is nothing fancy. Looks like a bike tube that has been cut to fit the P3AT. You could make this yourself if you wanted to instead of purchasing it. I bought the grip instead of making it myself not knowing exactly what it was. In my opinion the pads at least are a 'must have accessory'.
