    Looky what just showed up with my name on it...

    A while ago my uncle asked me to look around for a P3AT for him, so i did. After multiple dealers literally laughed in my face when I asked if they had any, I realized that these are back-ordered everywhere around. The cheapest I found one was 265 at a gun show, plus Tennessee's ridiculous 9.5% sales tax.

    So I decided to see if I could get lucky online and found these for $499 shipped. They are brand new, in the hard plastic cases, have consecutive serial numbers, and I didnt pay any tax on them. I didn't really feel the need to have one myself, but since I had to buy 2 at a time I guess now i'll have something to carry in my gym shorts when I'm out running or working out And for $249.50 apiece, I'll take it!

    I'd really like to shoot one of those. I have no practical purpose to own one, (CC is damn near impossible in MD) but I'd like to try one out... It's like a squirt gun that squirts lead projectiles!

    Heh, except squirt guns don't feel like someone hitting your hand with a hammer when you shoot them.

    after reading for months about how hard these kick, i was recently let WAY down on expected recoil when i shot my friend's. (he just bought it). doesn't even kick as har as my FEG PA-63 did prior to a new spring (that drew blood and bruised bone, now, its a pussycat)
    course, igotta agree, it does kick a wee more that a squirt gun

    The KT-3AT is my #1 card table gun. I shoot it often to stay in tune with it.

    I got mine de-clawed... with some houge jr's... The little wrap-around grips do wonders, without significantly adding bulk. Stays put nicely...

    +1 on the Hogue Jr's. Makes the gun much more enjoyable to shoot, although it's still not a gun I want to put 100 rounds though any time soon.

    Thanks friends. I might look into some of those grips. It doesn't seem uncomfortable to me the way it is, but the LCP I held the other day seems much more comfortable with its softer edges.

    I have been carrying the P3AT more lately and it kinda grows on me

    Here's a 15 round group from 7 yards with the P3AT. It's by no means a target gun but it does better than I expected from the little featherweight. This is also the first time I shot it, except for 2 rounds off my uncle's porch just to see if they worked, so I'm sure I can improve with some practice.

    I also let the girlfriend shoot it, but she was done after 4 rounds


    So far, 21 rounds, flawless performance

    That's pretty good shooting with a mouse gun (especially that group at 1 o'clock)

    My P32 shoots pretty much the same at that distance.

    If anyone is interested, http://www.ktaddons.com/ sells stick on energy absorbing pads for Kel-Tec pistols. They also have a slip on grip cover and plating service for blued slides/parts.

    Regards,
