Howdy everyone

I was able to make it to the range this morning to do a little shooting, and took the digital camera along for the ride, since I also had my daughter with me. I recalled a thread somewhere here where someone had wondered if anyone had a video of the P3AT firing. So I shot one (so to speak). ;D You can see it here:

I don't know how informative it will be for anyone, except to verify that this thing barely fits my hand, but I thought that maybe someone would be interested.

Ganiman answered for me here. A little while ago I made a comment about being a better shot with my SIG Pro than I was with the Kel Tec, and someone responded that I couldn't conceal the SIG as easily. So I took a couple of pictures. The first one is the SIG under my shirt - of course, I could be lying, and one person here would be quick to assume so, but it is there. The next two pics are the SIG and the P3AT as they fit in the same pocket. The P3AT is a lot more comfortable than the SIG, at least sitting down. Standing up doesn't matter much.

Yes, larger guns can be pocket carried. I can stuff a glock 27 into my pocket, and it will conceal decently. The problem is I cant get it out of there in a hurry. It can take several seconds to get it out of there, the P3AT slides out easily.

Well, I am a bit larger than average. Let's say I don't really blend into a crowd very easily. In fact, I can be a crowd all by myself! The SIG isn't actually in my pocket, it is in my watch pocket! That frees up the main pocket for keys, change, etc. ;D

Nice video, Pennsy! Very interesteng, Thanks for sharing it.

Of course, what WE consider pocket carry, means the wholw gun is concealed in the pocket.

Packer.

I guess it isn't technically a pocket carry, but it is in a DeSantis Nemisis pocket holster, and as I mentioned above, it is a watch pocket carry. The main pocket in my jeans is big enough for the SIG to disappear completely inside, but if I carry it in the watch pocket, it keeps it up tight against my belt without having to use an IWB or OWB holster.

Hey PennsyPlinker.

Nice video. BTW, I did go shooting that day...., I ended up at the Firing Line and I took my daughter with me to teach her how to shoot. (the Beretta 92 with lasermax was awesome!) I just had to run another 100 rounds through the 3-AT. Worked great with maybe one FTE because of limp wristing. When I got home to clean, and I was reassembling, I forgot to put the extractor back in and the slide got stuck on the rail. (someone else had an earlier post on this problem) Could not push forward or backward to re-insert the assembly pin. I mean... this sucker would not budge. Of course I made the mistake of pulling the trigger to see if it would release and I think that made it worse. Thought I was going to have to send it back to KT or take a chance on disassembling the rest of the gun. Anyway, long story short, I wrapped a cloth on the hammer end of the slide and gave it a good klunk on the carpet and that released the slide. All is well now, but I am not sure why this happened. Perhaps someone else can explain why this got jammed and if leaving the extractor out had anything to do with it.

You forgot to put the ejector back in.
The extractor is attached to the slide.

Anyway, leaving out the ejector can in no way cause the slide to bind up.

You must have had the recoil spring guide rod out of place in the frame, or the hammer was bound up slightly on the bottom of the slide.

Probably would have come loose if you had jerked on it harder.

And as you discovered, DO NOT pull the trigger with the slide off!
On any gun, not just KT's!

Hey RCmodel,

Yes... I meant to say ejector (darn, I always mix those two terms up). Thanks for the explanation as you have definitely cleared up some of my questions as to why this happened. I pulled the trigger when the slide was on, with the hope that it may loosen the slide from the jam. It was a bad idea because it made the jam even worse. Like you said, it's just a bad idea to pull the trigger in any dry situation.

Thanks. I made it back to the range the next morning, since I had to take the dog over for his haircut, and I was about a mile away. That's when I got this video, since I had my daughter along as well. She has been shooting for a while now, but we are planning on taking a class together along with Mom to get both of them some professional instruction - and the referesher won't hurt me either.

I'll send you an email next time I have some time coming up and we'll try again.
