Have been a lurker several weeks now. Found a P3AT at a local store about 2 weeks ago and purchased for $226. I just want to thank everyone for making this a great site and helping us newbies out tremendously. I immediately did a thorough F&B using 400 and 600 grit wet/dry sandpaper. Coated the outside with Eezox, oiled and greased inside with Remoil and Slick 50 One Grease. Painted the front sight. Ran snap caps through it with no problems, but could not find time to make it out shooting. (4 kids keep me hopping most of the time.) So, FINALLY, today at lunch I made a trip to the local indoor range for a FAST session. Started with 12 rounds of HydroShoks, then 30 rounds of American Eagle and then 30 rounds of ....... dang, forgot what it's called, but I'll add it later. Then finished with a few more HydroShoks. So.....70+ rounds without a hickup. Since my time was short, I fired pretty much as fast as I could load. Approximately 1 sec/shot, fill the mag and do it again. A couple notes. I really didn't find it uncomfortable to shoot at all. I shot about 1/2 of the shots with two hands and about 1/2 with one hand. No problems either way, I prefered shooting it one handed. I did check for smileys and yes they are there. I originally thought as long it was reliable, I wouldn't mess with the smiley fix, but I probably will. I'm a enjoy tinkering. Accuracy at 8 yards was better than I was expecting. ESPECIALLY since I was just shooting to put some rounds through the gun. My Conclusion: I really like the P3AT. It is a great little gun. It is definitely a keeper!!!! I have some Golden Sabres on order. Next session!!!!!! I also shot about 25 rounds through my Glock 27 today. Sure wish it was easier to carry, but I just can't do it comfortably and confidently. Thanks again everyone!!!!!!! HOPEFULLY, I'll have a chance to add a few pics tonight.
