    The UPS guy brought my new OD grip earlier today. It took only 2 days to get here from Fla. which was quicker than I expected.
    Everyone was right by saying it wasn't that hard to swap out. I only had one little glitch which was letting the trigger spring slip past the trigger bar before I saw how it was supposed to go together. Took me a few minutes to figure it out. After that all went smooth.
    I'll get to fire it some later today and make sure everything's still working like it should.

    I think the color of the OD grip and HC slide go together pretty well.

    Looks great. I like that OD and chrome look you have on there. Also, it gives quite a bit of personal satisfaction to come through with a major mod like that in good condition. Assuming the range will prove it works well, that is. Which it will - no worries.

    Wow, I've never really liked OD, but that looks nice.  Great combination of OD and HD.

    Thanks for all the positive comments.
    Just got the holster today and after more rounds down range it should be ready for carry full time.

    Nice job!

    Good looking end result, and I like that holster.

    I have more than a few pistols, but the P3AT is my daily carry 99% of the time.

    Just can't beat it for size/weight/comfort/concealment.

    And when you can't carry something larger, the .380 round is certainly better than nothing.

    Good luck.  :cool:

    I've been carrying my P32 in the same kind of holster for about a month now and I have it with me as long as I have pants on.  It's like you just forget it's there.:)
    The 3AT will move to full time as soon as it's proven reliable. So far so good. ;)

    Thanks.
    The more I shoot and carry the Kel Tec the more I like it. It's like everybody says, you get to where you don't even notice it in your pocket. I think the holster has a lot to do with it too. It's really comfortable.

    Yeah, the holster helps to make it more comfortable. I made a custom, form-fitting one. Feels like a second wallet.

    I was planning on getting an OD and black PF9 but realized I have a pocket knife that's OD and brushed stainless. I know it's silly but I might have to get an OD/chrome PF9 to match the knife :p

    I've got a HC/Grey P3AT and think I would jump on a PF9 if I came across one in the same combo. Of course, then my wife would jump on me.  :)

    Beautiful gun!!!! I have one just like in my pocket right now. Until I get my Kahr PM9 fixed my P3AT is back in rotation as my 24/7 gun.

    I think HC over green is the nicest color scheme KT has to offer. I have a HC/green P3AT and PF9 that I love.

    Congrats of your impeccable taste!

    I looked long and hard at the gray grip before deciding on the OD. If I get tired of the OD I can always order the gray grip and just swap them out. That's what's good about the Kel Tec, versatility. :)
