    Recently purchased a Gen2 P3AT .380ACP on-line for the amazing low price of, ta-dah: $175!
    This offer included a nice Uncle Mike's size 2 pocked holster.  :)

    But, that's not all! I picked-up the item up at the seller's address, and avoided the usual shipping expense of $20-$25.  :D

    AND, paid the FFL expense of $8.00!  ;D

    That's a P3AT, holster, shipping, and FFL for: $183.00!!!  :eek:

    The gat is in excellent condition and appears to have been fired little and carried less.

    I added a shoe and it feels nice in my hand.

    Picked-up some Winchester USA Centerfire Pistol Ammunition USA380VP, 380 ACP, Full Metal Jacket, 95 GR, 955 fps, 100 Rd/bx at Walmart for $31.97+tax and look forward to a trip to the range.   Would like to use for SD.  Thoughts?

    Included a photo of my latest. I also included photos of my other two KelTecs: a P32 w/ArmaLaser that the P3AT replaced; and my first P32. Hmmm, seems like one or two of the little guys gotta go.

    If those were mine and one had to "go" it would not be the P3AT.
    I had a 32, but not for long once I got a 380.
    Kel-Tec 32 with Winchester 60 gr. Silvertip 839 fps / 94# KE
    Kel-Tec 32 with 65 gr. Federal Hydra Shok 804 fps / 93# KE
    P3AT with 90 gr. Gold Dot 841 fps / 141# KE
    P3AT with 90 gr. Hydra Shok 845 fps / 143# KE
    The 380 is about 50% more powerful, based on KE determined by chrono results (average for 5 shots)

    The holster at the bottom is a KNJ Pocket Holster PH02, from Bee-Barb Outfitters.  A couple of "rubber" strips around the center help to keep the holster in the pocket when drawing either a P-32 or P3AT.

    Your name suggests you are here in Pittsburgh (PGH), me too, curious what shop you had it shipped to as I have never done an online purchase but am looking to do so.

    Congrats on finding the good deal! For SD? Sure, I carry mine and never feel undergunned.

    Wish i could find one for that price. My p-11 is a little to big for me to carry comfortably.
