Had a bad week, so the wife let me in on a secret that there was a gun show going on in Fort Worth yesterday. We went "just to look" and a P-3AT followed me home. Both her and I are going to get our CHLs soon, and after a lot of reading the P-3AT seemed like the best bang for the buck for a pocket gun. She will probably end up using it as a purse gun. Either way I think it's a great little gun and can't wait to get it out to the range.
I tried the small Hogue slip-on grip, but found that it didn't grip my P3AT very well. There is a company out there that makes them specifically for the P3AT, and therefore might fit better and slip less (less trimming too).
I think the P3AT is a great little pistol, and mine has been flawless since the day it followed me home. There are a few places on the internet that have "fluff & buff" instructions that might help to make your example run a bit better, but all I did to make mine run so well was to give it a proper clean and lube and polish the feedramp.
I did some searches and found the other company making the slip on grips for the 3AT. They are made by a member over at KTOG.com, and from all the reviews I've read, they seem to be really great. I went ahead and ordered the slip on grip, and the absorbing pads. I figure I'll give it a try! www.ktaddons.com
I'm going to order the Nemisis also while I'm at it!
