    Finally took the little pistol at the range.
    I was a little anxious after reading all the posts here and elsewhere ...
    Shot 100 rds of UMC ball ammo.
    I had my padded shooting glove from the time we were shooting IHMSA.
    Removed it after the first mag.
    Shot 2 handed, one handed strong side, and weak side.
    Yeah, there is a bit of muzzle flip, but not enough to bother my arthritis  ;D
    I shot a few full mags - 7+1 (with the extension) to make sure.
    The accuracy was good, all the shots in a 6" circle at 15 feet except 6 (rapid fire).

    I am happy

    Not a single problem, worked just like a Glock  ;)   I guess the extensive F&B I did helped.
    Now I need to try it with the DPX I should get in a few days; if it works like it did today, it will become my BUG and later my EDC for dressy functions.

    Kudos to Kel-Tec and to the members of this forum who taught so many things,  THANKS , guys

    That's great news! Now consider this, have two P3ATs one dedicated primarily to practice & training and the other to carry.

    Take care...

    I'm not certain I understand the logic? I have alway been taught that it is best to train and practice with the same weapon that you carry as each weapon can have its own quirks. Does your technique not defeat that purpose?
