I gotta say it, the slide serrations on the p3at don't do it for me. after only 2 mags, my hand started sweating. I can imagine that this is the body reaction in a defensive situation too. My hand slips off the bugger too much. Having come from a kahr pm40, man, those serrations were so sharp it felt like it was going to cut you. But it never did. and it always kept your hand on the slide. I am sure this subject has been discussed, but add that to the 3rd generation want list from me.
