Put a total of 350 rounds through my P3-AT serial number J8L 0#. No peening, no failures of any kind. No nothing but bang...bang...bang. I went a couple weeks ago and put 150 through it and decided if another 200 works I will feel secure in my new little pistol. I can't be more pleased and the range master wanted to know what I thought of the P3-AT...he should be picking his up in a couple days. I have been telling co-workers to be careful buying one of these but now I have no problem recommending them.

That ridge started right away and I thought I was sunk but it never changed. The amazing part is I can't get it to malfunction. I have seriously limp wristed it and it just keeps running.

And because it preformed so well this is it's new home.
The temps here in Phoenix are already pushing or are already at 90 and that's why I bought this pistol in the first place.

Thanks for the good report! What brand of holster is that? Is it as comfortable as it looks?
Packer.
It's from a guy on E-Bay that hand makes them. I think I paid $25.00 for it. Very comfortable, you forget it's there and it lays close to your body and with the forward cant it dissapears under your shirt.

About the same wait as his peers...  shorter in some cases.   :-/

From a similar thread:

Here is a VERY small sample of typical wait time for a few custom makers like RJ.  

Alessi PCH Holster
After a couple of weeks of this I started calling different places. I got one distributor in New York that said the wait would be 1 to 2 years if then! I asked him if there was anyone he knew that might possibly have one in stock! I knew his answer before he said it. I asked him should I find one what should I expect to pay? His answer; "Any price!" He said my best bet was to order one and wait.

Ky-Tac
I have three Bravehearts by Ky-Tac.  Unfortunately, while David's design and workmanship are superlative, his delivery is as slow as molasses in January. It's worth calling him to see if he has something for your gun in stock to ship you immediately. If not, caveat emptor; I waited a year for one of his holsters.

Milt Sparks
Milt Sparks - I don't mind waiting four months for quality...   it was like, 9 months this past summer when i attempted to order a summer special.

I finally took the plunge. After having looked for leather for my 3" mdl 60 for a few years with no success, I broke down and called milt sparks. Not only did I order my mdl 60 holster, but when he told me there is a 12 to 18 week wait I went ahead and ordered 2 VM2's, a belt and mag carrier...

We understand that many of you cannot wait the sometimes 8 to 20 weeks (or longer) that it takes to get our product.

HBE Leatherworks
When asked about the expected wait time for a Com 3, he advised "3 to 6 months." Mr. Larsen also added that if the buyer is wanting the holster made of an exotic hide such as alligator, the price and the wait would be longer.

I'm not bitching at all. I have read nothing but good things about Kevin and his holsters. I have to think if a holster maker has a one year waiting list they should stop taking orders until they catch up some. I wouldn't order from someone that thinks his product is so special that they make you wait like that.
