After trying out a couple other examples of pocket 380's and lots of practice with the KT, it's going in my pocket.

I'm at about 500 rds now of everything from Corbon DPX to the cheapest crap i could find, with zero malfunction of any kind. The Glock 23 is still primary for hunting/fishing/backpacking trips, but EDC will be this little beasty.

I will say that i loved the ergonomics of the Taurus TCP but it went away when i couldn't make it reliable even after the break-in period and some fluff & buff. I was getting both FTF's & FTE's once every 3-4 magazines regardless of ammunition where the P3AT is 100% reliable and 100% omnivorous.

So, i was thinking of starting off by getting an extra mag, the Hogue handall jr, and the pocket pal holster.

Anyone have experience with this holster, and if so, am i restricted to a 6rd mag for my spare or can i get something bigger or with a pinky extension?

On a side-note, the pistol fits pretty well in a maxpedition rat pack wallet, which attaches to your belt via velcro. I really like this setup but it's not ideal 100% of the time.

No! They work exceptionally well and I have several each in 32, 380 and 9/40 cal.

No problems out of mine neither. Gives me +1round, as well as +1 finger on the grip, yet is still very easy to carry concealed and feeds perfectly.

Kel-tec needs to make one for the PF9. It is way overdue.

Amen, Dale. KT acts like the PF-9 owners are a redheaded stepchildren. Look at all the extras for their other guns including night sights for the P-11 while we PF-9 folks are left in the cold.

I like your maxpedition, it looks very sharp and practical

I really was disappointed with nylon pocket holsters.  They shed fine holster particles which get on the gun and possible inside it. Also, they get ratty with very little use.  A good fitting leather holster is the ultimate scabbard,  protecting the trigger from any movement.  RKBA holsters are a real bargain, providing custom made holster according to your specs for a low price and  he only charges $2.50 for postage. His quality is quite good which is a good thing since your little PAT is most likely going to get a lot of pocket time. I have looked at other pocket holsters but they are not properly designed and do no work as well.
You can carry a spare mag in a small nylon or leather knife pouch and take advantage of the smallness of the 3AT instead of  having a magazine with the pistol, increasing size o lump in your pocket.

Here is the web site for RKBA:  http://www.rkbaholsters.com/index.htm

Now it could be that they found out that we are a CZ-82 collectors and are just jealous!
