The gun was great! Love my P3AT! But I don't love this ammo in .380. 1st off I didn't buy them for jhp or as a carry round but was already at Academy and they were there for about the same price as I usually pay for .380 fmj. Also I'd used and had good luck with Monarch Brass in 9mm and .38 spl many many times. As I said I bought these for range fodder, but for someone looking for a possible carry round thats inexpensive enough to practice with... this ISN'T THE ANSWER. I'm not sure of the round count on my P3AT because I lost count after 600 but would guess I'm around 800+ now. Except for 1st 2 mags at initial break-in I've only had 1 malfunction thus far (and extraction failure caused by a defective cartridge). Today I only fired 50 rounds because the purpose of the range visit was to finish the break-in of my PF-9. As always, my P3AT fed and extracted without issue, and every round was struck with authority, center of primer. However, 3 rounds out of the box of 50 failed to ignite. I examined the rounds carefully and the dent in the primers would have caused any other round to fire. Definitely the ammo. All in all, great day at the range! What a dependable pocket rocket! BTW, for those that don't like the recoil of the P3AT, fire 50-100 rounds from the PF-9 1st and the P3AT will feel like a BB gun. Have to add... the Monarch was extremely accurate. Fired 1 round to test for accuracy before practicing point and shoot with the rest of the box. Without using a rest, it shot to the point of aim perfectly.
