    .380? Used to be all the P3AT owners were all over the place here, but they seem to have been a lot quieter since the LCP come along. I thought I was the odd man out with my NAA Guardian. LOL

    There were a lot of P3AT owners who posted in the recent .380 thread.

    Still P3AT here. The LCP looks nice, but I see no real reason to switch.

    I like my kel-tec. It rides with me everywhere I go.

    like me, most P3AT users are totally content. Part of the reason you may not be hearing a lot is due to KT struggling to keep up with demand. The P3AT is as scarce as hen's teeth at our local shops and gun shows. Not to mention that Ruger has spent massive amounts of money trying to promote the LCP. And, throw in the fact that nearly all the manufacturers are now trying to jump on the KelTec pocket pistol bandwagon with their "own" version, the market is getting flooded with options.

    I still have 2 KT's, one P3AT and one P32, and plan to keep them, as they are not offended by their room mates of Kimber, Sig, S&W, Ruger.......

    My 2-1/2 P3AT'S have run perfect after break in, with over 1500 rnds between them. At 7.4 oz (first generations ) the LCP doesn't compare in weight or thickness. Although the LCP has the useless manual slide stop.

    Check my posts for pre-offered LCP's I stated there would be the same issues as the P3AT, and I was proven right in some cases.

    ***How much does that NAA Guardian weigh? Might as well carry a 3" 1911***

    I chose the P3AT because it is quite a bit cheaper than the LCP. I love mine, and wouldn't trade it for anything.

    I love Ruger pistols, but my P-3AT will not be replaced with an LCP!

    Have both, P-3at is edc, LCP is "Sunday" gun, nicer fit and finish. Just received recall box, so off it will go. After it comes back I will decide if it will be my new edc.

    Yeah the Guardian was a little heavy...I sold it, needing money. I did like it..fely substantial and not too light. Glad everybodyu is happy with the KTs, It just seemed like right before the LCP made it out all of the KT supporters were very vocal.

    I dont have either, I prefer the P32, but if I were to choose between the two, I'd buy the P3AT over the LCP.

    Had p3at, traded it for a Ruger Speed Six .357 Mag ,2-3/4" snub nose.
    If I still had it I would see no need to replace with the LCP
