    Yes, I'm another new proud new P3AT owner. Rather I will be, should be able to pick it up next Wed and I can't wait. I plan to get my CCW here next week. Already planning my other goodies. After extensive research on the board, what a wealth of information I might add, I've decided on carrying Golden Sabers as my primary round, a GURU Dave P3AT pocket holster, and for my purposes I'll stick with the factory 6rnd magazine. Gonna break it in on some Federal FMJ, decided I'll hold off on the FnB until I put at least 100 rounds through and see how things are. Of course I'll strip it down, clean and re-oil before my first shot. I'd really like to find a nice slip-on cover for it, haven't really looked into that as of yet. Did quite a bit of research looking for a good CC weapon and finally settled on the P3AT, seems to be the best value out there for its class. Can't wait to take it to the range!

    I'm talking about those slip-on grips. The Pachmayr #4 or Handall Jr are just some I've seen so far.

    So I'm pretty interested in doing a pre-shooting FnB, I think it would be a good idea overall. Though I've heard it may void the warranty, is this true? It'd be a shame to FnB only to find some defect that requires I send it to KT and they say, "Sorry, but you're SOL" Ya know..

    the F&B is basically a through cleaning of a newly machined part, ie knock of the sharp edges, look for and remove any tight fits, and polish tool marks. I perform every cleaning like a F&B, if I see a dinged or smear, I scrape and polish it.


    IF you take a side grinder to it and throw sparks, that might void the warrenty ;D
