I picked one up just for the heck of it, and have been quite pleased and even impressed at how accurate it is, and how well it functions. I keep it loaded with Hornady XTP's at all times, and carry it monday through friday while at work. I think that you will find that it doesn't actually kick like a mule at all. I find them quite tame to shoot.
In case you didn't know, the ejector is a separate piece that slips into a groove in the frame rail. It will fall out if the stripped frame is turned upside down, and some people have either missed it's absence completely, or lost it and couldn't find it.
I would like to get a Ruger LCP when it comes out, but I have absolutely no justification for buying one since the P3AT does so well. Then again, I never let that stop me before....
