IMO the ergonomics,the load,and the sights of the P-3AT make it a 7yd. weapon. I find that this is fine with me. That is the longest range that I practice at with this weapon.

I pull from pocket and use my "quick fire" procedures or pull from pocket and practice my simi-concealed behind body,clothing,or furniture,drills. I always practice my shoot 2 or shoot 3 drills(never 1 shot). People that shoot 1 always want to "take a look" instead of finishing the "job".

The little weapon is close to perfect in the application that I bought it for and use it(only) for.
The Speer GD's function flawlessly in my weapon. I've got 450 rds. thru the weapon at this point and not a FTF or FTE.

I also feel that people think of this weapon as a weapon that they can give extended range time to without cleaning or re-lube. This little weapon(IMO)was designed for a carry weapon. A clean carry weapon. I have never shot more than 40 or so rds. thru it during a range session. I will never need or expect this weapon to shoot more than that when suddenly invited to a gunfight. ----------

I guess the 380 round is a pretty good defense load after all. I just might get one of those for an always gun. One that Ill always have with me. Good shootin with that small of a gun
