      Yep; for the intended use of this gun it's just as easy to point shoot or use the back of the slide to "aim".

      It's interesting to know that they do, indeed, stay in place on some sights. It's even more interesting to know that they stay "illuminated" for a relatively-usefully long time, and that just a little time under a flashlight does the trick.

      Hmmm...
      It's against my better judgment, but I guess I'll have to try them for myself.
      It does take a longer time under a normal flash. but my bright led lights or surefire work well. PM sent

      Yes. It is a belly gun.

      Try head-shots at 15 yards, and you'll know why the P3AT has sights.
      For that matter, try center-of-head shots at seven yards, and you'll know even better.

      Are yall saying that the p3at is not accurate? anyone that believes that should put a set of the crimson trace laserguards on one, you will change your mind about it, its still as one guy said a ears nose and throat gun, but you can put it there from about 25 yards with that laser, It will definately hit where the litle red dot is easily from 25 yards, no problem.

      No. Quite the opposite.
      It's accurate enough, at up to at least 20 yards, in my hands.
      That's why I suggested using its sights.
      You can't make head shots with an inaccurate pistol.

      Are you saying a laser makes a gun accurate? I am scratching my head. I would say that practice (amongst other things) will do more for your accuaracy then a laser. I may not understand a lasers function correctly.

      No the laser doesnt make it MORE ACCURATE but it does help in sight alignment, most people think that short barreled guns are not accurate when in fact it is just because you have a shorter distance between your rear and front sight, thus making it harder to get a good alignment on your sights, all I was saying is that a laser will help with proper sight alignment.
