    I picked up my Pete just this last weekend off someone trying to get rid of it at a local gun show. It was $230 for one with a parked slide and grey bottom that came with an extra mag and 20 rounds of Fed HydraShock HPs.

    I paid $225 about two years ago.


    I orderd a pocket holster from K&D. It was the pocket defender 2in1. However, I had the sew the leather pad to the holster, and remove the snaps. I always want the leather pad. It works great for the front pocket, and is very accessible.

    You will also want to go to KTOG and look at the fluff and buff section. My 3-AT is so polished, the feed ramp looks like a mirror, as well as the other recomended fluff and buff areas.

    I love my 3-AT! I always carry it. Sometimes as a BUG and sometimes as a primary.

    I concur. Go to KTOG.org, there is a plethora of information. With a little bit of sanding and polishing you can turn your crudely manufactured P3AT into a pretty little poistol.

    I have a parkerized p3at with a black frame. I went as far as polishing the extractor and the serations in the slide and it looks damned sharp.

    another good mod would be to get some silver or white touch up paint at an auto store and brush it on the rear and front sights. It makes them 10 times more visible in low light situations.

    I paid $285 for mine when they first came out. All black, I don't recall seeing any other option at the time. I also had a P32 that I bought about 6 years ago. I have since given it to a buddy.

    I throw the P3AT in an ankle holster every now and again as a BUG. Personally, I will never carry anything less than 9mm or .38 as a primary.

    When I carry my .380 or the .32, it is always in a Fist kydex pocket holster...

    Just came in between front and back grass cuttings...the KT P-3AT is in my pocket right now...

    Nice gun...you'll love it!

    Ret - I just scoped out Fist's website and didn't see a kydex holster. The only pocket holster is the #5 made of leather. Does the kydex one look like the #5?

    A coworker just picked up one of these last month...how are they? I don't think he's even shot it yet.
    Better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6

    Mine's a blued G2 model with the dark grey/black frame. Had it about 18 months and paid $229 NIB at a gun show. The local shops are currently selling them for $260-$300. I haven't seen a chrome one, at least not in several years, even at gun shows. The last chromed K-T of any kind I saw around here was a P-11 at a gun show about a year ago. The dealer wanted $249 for it if I remember correctly.

    I have G2 chrome with the green polymer. Bought it about two months ago. Figured I better snatch it up because the chrome models are hard to find. I paid around $270 for mine.

    I paid $249 for mine and it was the best money I've spent on a gun. I've been thinking about getting a PPK/S to take its place just because I've always wanted one. But I really can't imagine not carrying the P3AT as a backup/deep concealment gun.
