    Carry gun problem

    I just got a Springfield XD9 SC last month, now I called and ordered a Walther PK380, and a Kel-Tec P3AT. My dealer quoted me around $515 for the two guns which is a great price! In WI we have this stupid 48hr waiting period thing so I have to always make two trips when I buy handguns. The dealer is about 30 min away from my house so it kind of sucks. When I went into fill out the first round of paperwork we realized that the Walther had never shown up, it had been back ordered by the wholesaler. He said to make up for the hassle of a couple extra trips he would give me a deal on the Kel-Tec or a really great deal in the LCP that had been just out of my price range. I ended up buying the LCP for $250 and will wait until next week for the PK380!

    I was really surprised how similar the two mini .380s really are. I think the mags even come from the same factory I Italy.

    Meh, I'm still waiting for my S&W 327 TRR8 to come in. Week 9 of my wait is almost over. Now that makes me sad. Although, that means I need to pay a visit to the gun store to see if a ship-to date has been given. Visiting the gun store always makes me smile.

    I wish I had the OPs problems. I'm not seeing a problem outside of having to get another holster.

    When you purchase more than one handgun at a time, the dealer must submit a multiple sales report to ATF.

    The problem is, he has 2 new .380's and he's still under-gunned!

    Ya these two guns were bought off the record if you know what I mean. WHen she asks how many guns I have, I always say around 25 but I am pushing in on 30. I only need 3 more to match my age!

    You will like the LCP. Take a moment and join the Elsie Pea forum. There is a lot of good information there to help you get the most from this little pistol.

    Have a safe 4th!

    Good advice to check out the elsiepeaforum. And the LCP is a much better buy than the P3AT

    It's not very "off the record" if you're posting about it on a forum.

    Watch it buying multiple guns at the same time if all for CCW. Train well with one for an extended period - I'd say quite long - then carry it for awhile - long while. THEN, start on one of the others.

    You don't want to sort of know 3 guns when you're life depends on instantaneous use of one based on body memory.

    I believe it is Sturm, Ruger & Co. I like their firearms as well.

    You know, if the OP does feel undergunned, he could tape the .380s together and fire them in unison. A couple of sticks, some duct tape, and a call to Red Green for proper stick placement and all is good!
