    Don't let that deter you from getting one, they are a great little pocket gun. My wife loves hers, she will not carry anything else.

    Put it in your pocket...you won't even know it's there...a great little run to the store or cut the grass gun...had mine for almost 5 years and never a problem.

    actually there IS a manual safety on the P3AT...


    the trigger!

    It ain't gonna go bang if you don't pull the trigger. Best safety mechanism there is.

    Same as a double-action revolver: a long pull on the trigger is required to fire it.

    before I'd purchase a P3AT, I'd wait and take a look at Ruger's LCP that's just shipping this month. It might be a more reliable gun....then again my P3AT is 100%

    As stated... the trigger is the safety. Put it in your pocket with a pocket holster and nothing else. You will be fine.

    From the P3AT owners manual .... "The trigger connects via a transfer bar to the hammer. The hammer is driven by a novel free floating extension spring. The light weight firing pin transmits the energy of the hammer to ignite the primer. After firing, the hammer block holds the hammer away from the firing pin, providing a mechanical safety. The functioning of the mechanism greatly surpasses all applicable SAAMI safety standards."

    the p3at is a great gun. use a pocket holster when in pocket. the belt clip works great.
