In the welcome wagon area I briefly explained my aquisition of a new Kel Tec 380. I no longer find this little baby ugly! Here's what i have been up to.

New in box P-3AT(OD Green)
SN. Begin JVxxx

Performed total Fluff & Buff of barrell only. Lugs, Feed ramp(s) and chamber, complete exterior polish. Cleaned out factory trash from slide rails and oiled liberally. THAT'S IT!

Went Desert riding this morning on my trusty KTM and took along this little KT to deflower with a few rounds.

Exactly what I expected as far as recoil. SNAPPPY and FUN!

My first 7 cartridges were Rem 88gr. JHP's.  1 second between shots,.. perfect feeds and ejects! I DID NOT EXPECT THAT!
Second 7 rounds........SAME.........SAME.........SAME........PERFECT PERFORMANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Third 7, same ammo, as fast as I could pull the trigger.............PERFECT!!!!!!    By this time, the two guys I was riding with were playing a game catching the empty casings trying not to take a step to do so.  They were about 12 - 15 feet behind me and having a blast.
Lastly I filled her up with 7 102Gr. Golden sabres to see if I could get a whimper out of this little gem.  No such luck!!  Perfect again!!   I am so SO  SOOO stoked with this weapon!  I am extremely thankful for this website and the wealth of knowledge you all possess! I really was totally prepared for some type of problem to arise during these initial rounds as I have read how you all address them and make corrections.  I am almost scared to give it a "complete" F & B as I have never had a pocket pistol that performed properly and this one rocked today!!

Thanks to all
Tom

Welcome Proteen.  If she is working fine there is no need to do any further F&B.  Keeping that feed ramp nice and shiney and slick is a big part of it.  If your rails are sliding nicely now just keep her clean, lubed and go run some more through her.  Most of them are that way, we just get a little caught up when all we see is "sick" ones in this "hospital."  

Note that just because there is no need to do more F&B'ing doesn't mean don't get to know her intimately.  They are easy to tear apart, put back together, and see how things work.

Welcome Tom

Just picked my Baby up this past Friday. Haven't had a chance yet to test her out. But glad your time went well.

Happy Shooting to you.

Welcome Aboard! Happy to read you had such a positive experience with your new P3AT. Of all the color cominations I've seen I like the Black/OD the best - even better than my HC/Gray.


Take care...

That is the truth. I've only have my P-11 for about two weeks and just picked up a black/OD P-3AT today. I damn near bought the P-32 that was sitting next to it in the display too, but I was short about 100 bucks. ;D
