The P3AT is perfect for those times when you can't carry a gun.
Mine is dead reliable with gold dot's, and surprisingly accurate out to 25 yards or so. Over 3 years and a couple thousand rounds, problem free. Good to see there are others with the same experience.
Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.
My P3ATs have been quite reliable and accurate. I even quaified one for my backup gun. This is not a range gun, and can not be expected to hold up like one. If you are planning to us it as such, be prepared to send them back for rebuild now and then. It's best to buy two of them, so that you always have one to carry while the other is in Florida. I have never understood why anyone would want to put thousands of rounds thru this little pocket pistol. I put about 100rds thru mine for a reliablilty check. At the end of subsequent range sessions, I pull it out of my pocket and fire a magazine of my carry ammo to verify function. I clean and inspect the gun before reloading with carry ammo.That's it!!!
