    Went to the gunshow...

    Picked up a new Kel-Tek P3AT for 269.00!
    I was tired of waiting for an LCP (can't find one around here)
    Now if I can find some ammo, I'm off to the range to try her out! The Glock 19 might get a little jealous, I think it will stay in the safe most of the summer.

    I believe you've made a wise purchase. My KT 380 (first gen) has never had a problem...that's almost 6 years!

    Congrats on the purchase!

    P.S. You won't spend a lot of range time with it, not a fun gun to shoot, but it will always go bang...the perfect pocket gun.

    Look up the Fist #5 kydex pocket holster with the 'thumb push'...see 'Related Links' above.

    Congrats on the purchase. Good choice.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    That Fist looks nice! I picked up a Desantis Nemesis pocket holster at the show, it's ok for now. I ordered a K&D IWB Mini-Defender a while back for the LCP, it should hold the Kel-Tek nicely. (I hope)

    A steal by todays standards !

    Let us know your range experience (when you find the ammo )

    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

    Congratulations..I think it was a wise pruchase. I think you are better off with the Kel-Tec as opposed to the LCP.

    I'm curious about that statement as well. All in all I think the LCP has a nicer fit and finish, however the availability and the price of the Kel-Tek sold it to me.

    Good choice. I always carry my P3AT... I like the grip much better than the LCP.

    Good choice.

    You'll find you'll take it EVERYWHERE. Its so easy.

    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    That seems like a real good price to us.

    That is a good price. I paid $207 for a P32 five months ago. The LCP was just recalled and they still could not be found in my area of Ohio.

    I took it apart when I got it, LO&B. I have put 100 rounds thru it. Not one problem. Nada. That is what I am told you want from a carry gun: Reliability.

    Add the CT laser and you are good to go.
