So I just got my P3AT today, bought it NEW from a local gun shop. Got it home for it's pre-range cleaning, ran a cloth through the barrel and got a bunch of black soot on it. This tells me the gun has been fired before. What should I do?

What you have is "normal". They test fire every gun at the factory, but don't clean it afterwords.

Yeah, just found out they do that at the factory. Forgive me, this is my first new firearm. Thanks.

if you want to be sure call kel tec with the S# and they can tell you the build date and the shipping date then you will be sure if it was new.

my P3AT  S# KQX5x  when I called,  made 6-10  shipped 7-10  and I got it 8-10

Welcome. And, if you are like the rest of us, you will enjoy your P3AT and any other Kel-Tec you may own.
