Hello All: Last Saturday I purchased my p-3AT. The first gun I have purchased in over 3o years!! It was a toss up between the LCP and the KT. My decision was made easier because the dealer did not have a LCP in stock. I have researched both and I think they are both great guns. I just love this little thing. I got my CWP over a year ago so I am now trying to get comfortable carrying. I purchased a pocket holster and it is working out well. Took it to the range and fired 30 rounds with no problems at all. It bites a little but not a problem. I was a very active shooter back in the 70s - shooting mostly 22 target guns (Ruger MK1 and Hi Standard Victor). I was also into reloading .45LC, 44MAG, 38 & 357, 9mm) Still have all my guns but have not fired any in over 30 years. I am jumping back in with both feet. This is a great forum, I enjoy it very much. Frank

Welcome to the forum!

The P3AT makes a fine SD carry gun when you can't or won't carry anything larger. Great also as a BUG when you are carrying something else as primary.

welcome aboard Frank, same here was a toss up between a LCP or a P3AT. but with the help from everyone here it was hands down a P3AT for me and I could not be happier. after 100 + rds and not 1 problem its now my everyday pocket carry gun.

Lived in NY and range closed-nothing close enough. We moved to SC and things were right once again.

Funny how so many places up north just seem to go out of their way to make it hard to keep and bear arms. Makes you wonder how they ever won the war of Northern Aggression, doesn't it? Welcome back to Dixie Frank!

...I've lived in some pretty red commie states (CT most recently) where there weren't convenient places to shoot.  I still went occasionally.  I also always took stuff when I went back home or on vacation to "gun friendly" states.[reason]I. KEEP IT NICE:[/reason]

CT still has a pretty restrictive and retarded AWB, but I was pleasantly surprised when it came to handguns.  There is no "approved list" you have to stick to like in MA or CA.  There's no ban on magazine capacity (MD) or hollow points (NJ).  A pistol permit was easy to get and very little restrictions as to where you couldn't carry.  Open carry is "technically legal" because there's nothing in the laws prohibiting it.  And, people did open carry even though they very often got hassled by other citizens and Johnny Law.   "No gun" type signs carried no weight legally and could be ignored.  Still, the overall "feeling" was just that the entire state (i.e. people) was pretty anti-gun.  ....... ::)

When I lived in NY I even had a FFL and was so into guns. Loved shooting and was very involved, but things change. Many of my shooting buddies moved, wife and I had a new baby and your values just change. Got into scuba diving and it was my passion for years. Guns were always a love but just could not fit them in. Never got rid of any of them and now I am renewing my interest in shooting so go figure. Live is good.

God bless SC

Stick with that and don't allow yourself to be called out again in here.

My response would have been "nunya".  As in business.  Welcome to the forum.   :)

fas111, welcome. there never is enough time to do everything is there? and some things need to take a back seat. I have not been to a range to do anything besides the last trip to knob creek in a long time, and I own one......
