    Kel-Tec - Thanks!

    Thanks everyone who recommended the Kel-Tec p3at .380 as a good "pocket carry" gun. I purchased one yesterday, and it is a GREAT little gun... very accurate, incredibly light, and just as predicted... fits perfectly in my pocket.

    It looks kind of "cheap" in it's construction, but I didn't have any FTF's or anything, which I ALWAYS seem to have when I'm breaking in a new gun... so, perhaps looks can be deceiving.

    - Glock 27 (.40)
    - Kel-Tec p3at (.380)
    - Beretta 96FS (.40)
    - Smith & Wesson 5906 (9mm)

    Now get yourself a nice pocket holster from KD or a K Rat from palehorseholsters to carry it in, don't let it ride in your pocket without a decent holster.

    The sights are slightly worse than terrible but, shooting carefully AKA slow & deliberate from a rest...as a test - it's surprisingly accurate.

    Incredipete,

    Congrats on your recent purchase as the P-3AT is a great pocket gun! I carry mine everyday regardless if I'm carrying my Sig P229 (.40) or not.

    While there are great holster makers out there, I bought a wallet holster from Guru Dave. I received it in days, not weeks and can carry it either in my jeans back pocket or in my right front pocket of my office slacks. Check them out at http://www.pocketholsters.com/Kel-Te...t_holster.html

    Congratulations on the Kel-Tec. Enjoy it and carry it. My little P32 in my K&D Pocket Defender is a constant companion.

    DeSantis Nemesis or the Uncle Mikes pocket holster, get the belt clip. the belt clip works well.

    I bought a P11 and couldn't be happier. I too questioned the "cheap" attribute, but after having it, going to the KelTec support site, and then actually shooting the thing, I am pleased to say the least. No malfunctions with a little over 500 rounds. Great gun. Not a range gun for super accuracy, or shooting all day, but for Goblins it will work I am sure.
