OK, I will give you my 2 cents as a P3AT owner as to why I would choose the P3AT, however they are very similar.TNHitter said:...I recently bought a PF9 and love it, no problems with it at all. Now I am looking at a .380 to CCW when my PF9 wont fit the bill...Ive been looking at the P3AT and Ruger LCP, can anyone provide benefits of the P3AT over the LCP, other than price?
Thank you so much for sharing your experience, you have encouraged me to move forward on expanding my pocket carry life adventure. I sincerely hope that my P3AT is not the jealous type.TNHitter said:The weight is never a problem and if I didnt want to pocket carry, I could always keep the PF9 with me. Some of my attire such as dress slacks have shallow pockets and therefore the butt of the gun it a little to close to the opening of my pocket for my personal comfort.
My PF9 fits great in jeans, casual shorts, and even some dress slacks. I actually forget i am wearing it sometimes....sign of a good CCW!
I think the ability to pocket carry a PF9 will depend on your build;however I suggest you get one anyways =)
Thanks for all the replies, P3AT is my next purchase =)
Just what do you feel you need protection from with the 44 Rem Mag ;D roque elaphant Joking of course, couldn't pass on thatRobert357 said:[quote author=TNHitter link=1249422051/0#0 date=1249422051]...

I really have fallen in love with the P3AT and pocket carry, . . . The P3AT is a superb pocket carry handgun that is completely concealable.
I have found that both weight and size are bigger factors . . . pocket carry. When I really feel I need protection I have some very large caliber (45 ACP 1911, 44 Rem Mag snubnose revolver, 357 Ruger revolver) handguns and inside the waistband holsters, but really have grown fond of pocket carry with the P3AT and fear anything much bigger than a P3AT will just not be as pleasant and doable. That is why I wonder if the PF-9 is just a little too big or heavy some of the time?
Seriously, when I go hiking in the woods and lace up my hiking boots, I usually slip my 44 Rem Mag, Astra Stainless Steel, Terminator, snubnose revolver into an Uncle Mikes inside the waistband holster and hide it all under a loose fleece jacket. I live in western Washingtion, where your chance of meeting large groups of people on a trail on a weekend day is almost 100%. Furthermore, most of them are tree huggers who freak out at open carry. I don't need or appreciate the drama I have to deal with, with open carry among such folks.vn6869 said:Just what do you feel you need protection from with the 44 Rem Mag ;D roque elaphant Joking of course, couldn't pass on that
I thought it was only one tbh.joje said:doesnt the lcp come with two magazines? thats a $25 value. on the other hand i believe the lcp still suffers from the trigger "bug" that kel-tec since has fixed?
