    I'll third the motion for the P3AT, though I prefer Gold Dots.

    Not a Kel-Tec but my p64 is my ankle/backup gun, the smallest I carry until I finally break down and buy a NAA mini revolver. I only use this one as a bug or on the rare occasion I have to wear a tux.

    I have a P-3AT as I sit here at the library in my front pocket. I love it for its concealability. I'd rather have my Glock 23 but it's too hard to conceal with what I'm wearing.

    .38 special j frame snub revolver loaded with 129 grain +P Hydra Shoks..I have a Beretta 3032 Tomcat on layaway though and I suspect I'll load it with Silvertips

    P3AT with Gold Dots as well. It's great with the belt clip inside the waistband in shorts and a T-Shirt. Very easy to hide and I sometimes forget its even there.

    My P3AT is also my minimum. I put it in a pocket holster with jeans or shorts when something larger is not possible/practical.

    Not from this forum, evidently, since everyone here apparently has a P3AT and likes it enough to carry it.

    Mine has never malfunctioned. I have run ball, Gold Dot and Silvertip through it. I do clean it somewhat more frequently than my Glocks, which is to say every couple of months. It just perks right along, doesn't complain, and is tiny and light and easy to carry even in running shorts. I even sold my S&W J-frame, the last of my revolvers, and replaced it with the P3AT.

    Not bad for $225.

    I carry a Kahr P9. Here is a pic of it on a regular sized mouse pad. This is my summer carry since it is so thin and light. I highly recommend it.

    I would never do that..my J frame has a certain style, flair or panache that appeals to me

    Diff'rent strokes, I guess. I don't care one whit about style, just functionality (I mainly carry Glocks!). For me, the P3AT is easier to shoot well than the J-frame, recoils less, and is also obviously lighter and flatter.

    Smallest I would carry?? Well that would have to depend on where and when, In South America I carried a Walther TPH in a shirt tail holster, ,, and on UC duty for the PD have carried either the same gun or a Browning-25 and then a NAA 22 mag ,

    Most times now tho I will not go below a 9mm in any of the recent quality compacts
