    2181 - it just runs smoother and smoother.

    It's my ONLY gun, so it gets all the practice.

    I never carry my P3AT as a primary. I put a box of 50 through it when I first got it and haven't shot it since. I had no malfunctions.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Actually have a P32, but similar. Have about 300 rounds through it with no major problems except on one type of ammo (Beliot, I believe .....on sale at Sportsmans W.) I think it was a fmj type and jammed every other shot. When I used major brand ammo like Remington, it is smooth as silk.

    400-500 rounds, no problems.
    The keys to winning a gunfight are first to bring a gun and secondly to take your time, quickly.

    Always remember that if your opponent is within range, so are you.

    A guy over at KTOG.Org - Kel-Tec Owners Group that goes by "jocko" fired 5000 rounds [plus or minus] through his P3AT before the slide cracked. He has since purchased a Kahr PM9 and doesn't post much at ktog these days. I'll try to locate him and have him sign in here.

    I've only got about 12rds through mine...lol the previous ownder said he only put about 25rds through it. I was having some issues with the trigger and later that day found out it was the trigger pin, but as mentioned earlier, a lil loctite and I think the problem is solved...I'll be taking it back to the range here pretty soon.
    Better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6

    800+ rounds. I find that the 105 gr golden sabers work the best. Of course, you want to do a fluff and buff!!!
