I have not had a failure with my 2nd gen 3AT. It has become a toss-up whether I carry it or my 442 w/CT lasergrips. The 3AT goes better with dress pants & also with tighter shorts.
I tried the PocketSlipper laser on my 3AT, but it affected my grip too much. The 3AT shoots well enough @ 5-7 yards that I can use point shooting if my old eyes fail me.
