    Just curious, how did you notice that you had smileys?  Unless I recover my bullets I never look.  Some of my P3ATs did smileys from time to time.  It never made a difference in how they shot and I bet the bad guy wouldn't have felt any better being hit with a smiley bullet.

    Smileys are a fact of life with a small .380 like this. I don't think sending it back to Kel-Tec is going to help any. Read around; there is a feed ramp mod that might help reduce the effect...
