Hi Folks, I pick up my new P3AT tomorrow evening, following my mandatory wait for 'them' to verify that yet again I'm not a danger to anything other than my bank account. lol Been shooting handguns off and on for 37 of my 58 years but this is my 1st SMALL tool. Got it to celebrate my upcoming Utah permit and wanted the convenience of size & weight. Had a Mauser HSC in 380 over 20 years ago and liked that round. The KT will join my present small stable of the Browning .22, old Walther P38 and my recent CZ52 in 7.62x25. Can't say I'm thrilled to hear about the recent blow up or pookieguy giving up on the piece, or some of the other FTF/FTE issues, but hopefully mine came off the assembly line ready to go? I'll post a mini report when I get back from the range tomorrow. ANY machine can have issues., if the manufacturer stands behind it that at least is a very strong positive. I can get a PF9 at this gun shop for the same price as the P3 so I'll have to decide whether to buy an early birthday present too while I'm there tomorrow.
