    P3AT-LCP Limp Wristing

    I have a P3AT and love it. I carry it 24/7 in front pocet in a Nemisis holster. 1200 rounds through it with a few problems in the first box of ammo. Sent back to factory and has been flawless for the next 1150 rounds. I read about the limp wrist problem, do the LCP's and Kahr P380's have the same problem ? I love the forumn , have learned alot !

    Absolutely. My wife shot my LCP for the first time last Saturday and had two FTE in one magazine. When I explained the limp wrist deal, she put two more mags through with no issues.

    The only time my LCP had a FTE/FTF was when I intentionally limp-wristed it; I used the lightest possible grip pressure and hit the bulls eye with both shots (after clearing the first jam).

    I have a tendency to use a "death grip" on it most times in anticipation of the recoil and, in those instances, have never had an issue.

    Limp-wristing can be (is) a problem with almost any semiauto, and is only magnified in the shorter barreled models. It's a matter of training to adjust to that firearm's peculiararities.

    any gun can have a fte / stovepipe due to limp wristing. short barrels especially. i had a problem with that with my kimber for a long time. now i dont limp wrist near as much and i load my ammo a little hotter.

    Neither I, nor my (petite) wife has ever had such an issue with either of our LCPs. I suppose it is possible, but its never happened.

    The pinky extension helps keep these small guns from jumping around in your hand, and should be considered a mandatory accessory, IMHO.

    Yep. I have the Kel-Tec P3AT, and had that issue when I first got it with 1 or 2 rounds. Pinky extension and better grip takes care of it.

    With such a nice "snap" to this thing (and other short barreled weapons like the LCP), you get used to "deathgripping" them pretty quickly, and the problem goes away.
    Stop acting like we're fightin' for "freedom". We are ALREADY....free.
