I have a 1st generation P-3AT that I've carried daily since back around 2003 and again I have never had a failure of any sort with this gun. They're great little guns but they have to be held and held tight...no limp wristing...[emphasis added]
    Yes. This is frequently the case.
    Most people should not be trying to use mini-pistols: They are experts' tools.

    My wife, Jean, shorter than five feet, 90 pounds when fully dressed and sopping wet, is very pleased with the P-3AT that she chose for herself.
    She knows how to hold it, and she knows how to hit with it, and it just doesn't bobble or jam.

    But when she chose it, she already knew how to use a pistol properly, so the transition to a mini-pistol was easy for her.
