I recently acquired a P3AT and absolutely love it! I've had my CCDW license for over ten years and have never really carried, simply because I didn't like lugging around my .38 snubby. Now I carry my P3AT every chance I get (not all the time, mind you, but quite a bit). I don't know why I waited so long to get one! I took it to the range a couple of weeks ago for its inaugural test firing. It was a nasty day at an outdoor range (Know Creek in West Point, KY), so I was just throwing lead down range. I fired 50+ rounds with it new out of the box and didn't have a single hiccup--no F&B required! I'm a big guy with small hands, so it's very comfortable for me to fire, and I don't have any problems with the recoil. I can't wait to do some real target practice! I've been trolling this board for a while (even before I got my P3AT), so I bought a few accessories right out of the gate: 1) A leather wallet holster from pocketholsters.com and Desanti Nemesis for front pocket carry. I'm not sure which one I like best yet. 2) A set of sights from nightsiters.com (haven't installed them yet) 3) A Hogue Handall grip (haven't received it yet) 4) A set of A-Zoom snap caps. I don't know how many times I "inadvertently" dry-fired it on it's maiden voyage at the range, but I've seen the error of my ways and won't be making that mistake any more. BTW, this is a *brand new* model with the new hammer block. At the range, I was firing Magtech 95gr FMJ. I'm carrying 90gr Hydra Shock Personal Defense.
