    I think I may have to get one of those. I'm afraid my P32 will get jealous though because it probably won't get out of the safe very often after the P3AT comes home!

    I have never seen a bad review on gunblast.com. That is something I consider when reading the articles there. Of course, I'm a little bitter right now because my 3AT doesn't work after less than 100 rounds.

    I'm up to 300 rounds in my P3AT with no problems.

    There is a "smiley face" issue, where the bullets hit the feed ramp, leaving a smile on the bullet nose.
    No failures have been caused by it, but I'll be glad when it is cleared up.

    With a shootable, controllable .380 in a package that small, KelTec has a winner on their hands.

    This gun is much more comfortable to shoot than the NAA Guardian (.32) that I used to own.

    I have been hearing quite a few negative reviews on the Kel-Tec P3-AT. It is a shame because I had the hope that they would have winner there. The P-32 also has it's share of problems but I was thinking that the new P3-AT might have been improved in some way. It doesn't look like it was improved at all.

    Based on the spotty rep of the P-32 and now the P3-AT, I don't see my money going back to them anytime soon. It is a shame because I really wanted to like my P-32. It was flat and super light and it held enough ammo in a relativly potent caliber that made it somewhat comforting to have with you but the unreliability and poor quality of the gun made it a nightmare.

    Kel-Tec should sell out to a company that will keep the ideas alive but will also make a quality product that can be trusted. Kel-Tec is a good idea poorly followed through. Such a shame. :(

    I had a KT P32 and I had some troubles. And Ill admit I became a bit of a "TROLL". But Ill tell you something, I gave up on my KT too quick. I never really gave it a chance.:( But I will tell you one thing Im a HAPPY CAMPER now.:D I had to have another, So I went out and bought another P32. Im also looking for the P3AT. "Cool Name" isnt it? FireStar is a troll he wants another but he keeps buying crap like the "STAR" And Llama line up.
    I just cant see myself without a KT P32. Man! I wish that I could find the P3AT in Bama.

    Ah yes, makdaddy03 and Flyer, the Gestopo of the gun forums.:D Be careful what you say around them or they might come and kick in your door with their Jack boots.

    Flyer is good at cleaning things, or should I say white washing. Kel-Tecs have more than their share of problems but he can't seem to accept that. I am only trying to warn others before they spend their hard earned dollars on a gun that may not work. I'm looking out for my fellow shooters by giving them sad truth about the Kel-Tec scam.

    Star makes better guns than Kel-Tec by a long shot! I don't buy Llama so get it straight, Star, Llama and Bersa are all different companies.:banghead: I don't say that Kel-Tec is the same company as Bryco or Jennings but the quality is about the same.

    This started out as a thread about the P3AT which would have been an interesting thread for most of us.

    Given what it's turned into instead, I'd say it's time for the moderator to close this down. :fire:

    Disappointed,
