kinda long story this past summer i rode up north and back down thru the rockies. went thru several thunderstorms. got caught a few time before i could gear up. as a result my p3at got wet and the slide turned to rust in just one day. cleaned it up and moved it from my bib pocket to the bikes glove box. when i got back home i tore it apart, buffed it down and tried to cold blue it myself. looked ok but would still rust up if it got wet riding. now for the WoW! i live less than 50 miles from Jack Fuselier. i dropped off the slide for the p3at and a p11 i keep in the nightstand for the satin nickel finish. WoW! they look great! (upper left is my factory satin finish p11) looks like i'm gonna shoot up a couple hundred rounds tomorrow! THANK JACK FUSELIER!
