I purchased a new P3AT at a gun show last weekend and after browsing some of the threads here,I was a little anxious about the purchase. A lot of problems being brought up and solutions being requested. Anyway, I went ahead and did a F&B and a few other tricks and took it out to the range today. I fired 100 reloads through it and it had nary a burp or hiccup, it ran like a fine built watch! Many thanks to all of the helpful hints you folks are throwin' down on here. P.S.-Used to carry a P-11 as a backup when I was a LEO and it never failed me either.
