    Thanks for looking. I recently got to shoot a mag full from a P3AT (not sure which generation). I have been thinking my next pistol to be a P32, but after shooting the P3AT, which do you recommend? Those of you who maybe have both pistols, which is the pros/cons, likes/dislikes (most likely not too many dislikes), etc between the two pistols? I already have a .380 pistol, so a P3AT would be sharing ammo with it. Thanks for replying.

    My recommendation would be for the .380. P-32s aren't nearly as scarce as the P3-AT and .32 is ballistcally inferior round. As long as you can find ammunition for it, I would say go for it!

    I have a P-3AT and my mom has a P-32. I have fired both, and there are pros and cons for both.

    All below are my opinions and perceptions; YMMV

    P-3AT

    Pros:
    Lightweight
    Easy to conceal
    Accurate
    Reliable

    Cons:
    Sharp recoil
    Sore hands
    Easy to limp-wrist
    Scarce ammo

    P-32

    Pros:
    Lightweight
    Easy to conceal
    Reliable
    Almost no recoil
    Difficult to limp-wrist

    Cons:
    Not very accurate
    Less powerful round
    Scarce ammo

    Jens - go check out the search function as this topic has been debated to death. I vote .380 and you can come shoot mine if you have any questions.

    I am already sort of biased to the .380 anyway, I just wanted to hear what people had to say :) Thanks!

    Yeah, but it was 0240, I couldn't sleep, I wanted to post something, and it was a subject that's been on my mind. :) Thanks all!
