    And I'm very satisfied with it after my first trip to the range. 50 rounds of WWB and a dozen Golden Sabers thru it, no worries, no issues, no nothing.

    Just what you want from an everyday carry piece. :)

    VERY happy with it. My only gripe is no slide lockback on empty, but other than that, I have a new everyday CCW piece.

    Welcome to KTOG and glad you took the time to post

    If you want a slide lock, you can always add a P32. I did ;)

    But I still like the P3AT better and leave the P32 in the case
     

  3. Glad you are here hawthorne.........

    Thanks for the report..and if you do a search on the site you will find the slide lock mod.

    Wecome Hawthorne2k. A reliable P3AT IMHO makes an excellent everyday carry piece.

    Take care ...

    Thank you, all. Is there a link to the slide lock mod thread? I can't seem to find it.

    Well, considering that I'm the kind of machinist that saws something twice and it's still too short, I think I'll just make sure I count my outgoing rounds and leave this sort of thing to the experts.

    :D

    Thanks anyways.

    I, too, was a little disconcerted when I found that there was no slide lock on empty, but I think it is just because of habit.  I had never shot a semi-auto without a slide lock.  Now that I am used to it, it is not an issue. (I have learned to count my rounds :) )

    My hats off to you guys who've learned to count. Me? I just glance at the ejector port for the glimpse of brass ;D

    Welcome to ktog!

    I catch myself doing that same thing at the range when I lose count of how many rounds are downrange.
