I like the KelTec P3AT.
Some might call it Summer Wear, like the Seecamp, Beretta Bobcat, etc., but what is your favorite ultra small pocket gun?
I was planning on picking up a 3AT until Ruger's new knockoff came out. Now I have to look at both.
I wish the 3AT came with a metal framed version.
Kel-tec 3AT. Why pay more for the same gun.
PF9 in pocket most of time. P3at sometimes. Sometimes both.
Colt Pony Pocketlite .380 in SS. It's not new. I picked it up six years ago, just after Colt stopped making the small guns. I carry it all the time!
I'll be looking at the new Ruger LCP .380 when they hit the stores in the next couple of months. Yesterday, I stopped by the gun shop/range that I go to now and then and ended up in a conversation with the owner and a couple of other customers about the new Ruger LCP. The owner of the shop has had the opportunity to handle one. He claims that in some ways it looks very similar to the Kel Tec 3at, however, it's not! He claims that the Ruger is far superior in overall fit & construction. The trigger pull, although firm, is a dream over the Kel Tec 3at. He believes that once they hit the shops and the public gets to handle them, and compare them to other .380 pocket guns, they will sell like hot cakes!
My experience with mouse type guns is limited as I have large hands and it is not fun for me to shoot them at all, so before CC they were next to useless to me. However now I gained a little experience with them trying to find a good pocket gun and after trying Seecamp, Beretta tomcat, Kel Tec, etc. and found I like the NAA .32. It goes bang every time I pull the trigger and doesn't kill my hand the way the others did when I tried them.
Here's another vote for the Keltec .380.
NAA 380 Guardian. This has replaced my two Mustangs for EDC.
P3AT or a S&W model 37 I was just looking at.
the kel tec 3AT
I am getting S & W 642...I cannot do the keltec....my buddy had problems, plus what I have researched. At least mine will keep going bang,lol
Kel Tec P3AT.
Never argue with drunks or crazy people.
When I still had it, My derringer ( i think if i remember it was american arms) in 45 colt. kicked like a mule (at both ends) but great to shoot
Charter Arms, Bulldog Pug .44 Special
i like my beretta bobcat, my dad loves his. even my g/f's dad has the beretta tomcat with crimson trace grips. no complaints, keep them clean & they work a long time.
though this summer i'll be looking for something in a larger caliber. possibly a keltec p11 or pf9. or might go to the dark side & get a .357 or 38 special snubby.
My favorite is probably the Walther TPH. It doesn't really come in practical self defense calibers, though. For that purpose, I would have to join the keltec .380 group or peraps the new ruger, when it proves itself well designed and reliable.
So, are any of you KelTec fans even going to check out the new Ruger LCP and maybe reconsider? Being
a Ruger, it should be reliable and it looks like the fit and finish may be a lot better....
Since my KelTec works with 100% reliability now, I don't see a need for a different pocket .380. I don't care even a little about the appearance of a concealment pistol.
But if the LCP was a 9mm, I'd be all over it.
