    At one of my fav dealers, he has a USED 2nd gen, navy blue frame, hard chrome with a belt clip attached in the kel tec black zip case. He has $269 on the tag but he might possibly come down a bit on it for me. I held it, its in good shape, although I dont like not knowing if the previous owner(s) dry fired it alot, other than that im really thinking of getting it. Is this a pretty good deal? Thanks all. :)

    If you don't want it, buy it for me and I will pay a 5% handling fee.

    Blue , I should have specified. I really liked the little gun I just don't pocket carry. I either carry pf9. or p11 on belt in holster.

    I like the blue on black frame alot, but sometimes ive had light rust on my p32 blued/black, im not to much for navy frame but thats something I can live with for a while as ive heard u can buy a colored frame from KT, ive got 2 PF9's one with all the updated parts and the other will all the updated parts except its got a plastic mag release which I carry the PF9 now b/c its much lighter than the glock 26 i would normally carry. I believe imma still buy that one if he comes down on the price a little, if not I may wait for the next gun show and see what it has. decisions decisions

    I wouldn't pay that much for it, but I guess prices can vary quite a bit by region. If you want it, buy it. :)

    i would get it. the price is ok. now day you are not going to get one (used or new) for that price. here in tennessee is going price for a new one is $330.00 and that's is if you can find one. used ones are hard to find. i have looked for a used one and have had no luck. no matter what you find wrong, kel tec will send you the parts to fix it.

    I paid $200 for a used P3AT--my second-- that was in great shape with a holster and some ammo thrown in. But I saw one recently in a gun shop for $499. They are so difficult to find that I am sure someone will pay it.

    I paid $275.00 for mine brand new in January. There's no way I'm spending that much on a P3AT. It's a great gun but not that great. Some will pay it but not me.

    Depends on the area... My black grip/HC brand new was $289.

    But that same gun in OH is going for $315 for average. Depends on area... I wouldn't pay that much for a used one... Unless I didn't own a 3AT, and wanted to have one.

    I'd probably buy. That's not a bad price nowadays, and if you can get the price down, so much the better. As for the dry-fire, if it breaks, won't Keltec make it better? In the current shortage, a gun in the hand beats one on the dealers shelf.

    Please read the rules, no buying selling except in the TP.
    Also what you propose is called a straw purchase, ya might want to google that before ya go posting in public...  Both buyer and seller would do time in Fed pen w/ a guy named Buba  ;)
