Pro's - $ & weight, size, concealability
Con's-Anyone gon a con with the Kel tec?
Can't beat it for pocket carry when larger guns do not fit the bill.
Cons, since you asked so nicely
If you're asking for cons I'll give you a few (now take note that I really like my P-3AT for what it is)
- So tiny, only a baby could fit all fingers on the grip
- Finished roughly which can and many times does affect reliability in addition to comfort (lots of hanging bits of plastic to rub your hand raw)
- Sights are almost nonexistant
- It's a .380...yeah I know, we don't have to get into that arguement
- While shooting, it constantly wants to rotate in your hand
Some will complain about the long trigger, but I happen to like it.
I own a P-3AT.
Light, and with a short barrel, can cause this little one to jump around in your hand.
Assume/pretend there are NO sights.
For a few bucks more, and just a bit more size, you can get the PF-9 in 9mm, which is much better built and carries a stronger round.
Can be carried in your shirt pocket, and I've seen some "necklace" holster rigs for it.
Great for ankle or any pants pocket.
James Bond carried a .380 and look at all the one-shot-kills he made.
A truly "disposable" gun if it breaks?
Doesn't always like hollow points. To remain agony-free stay with FMJ.
Just my 2Â¢.
For the size class and the price range the triggers on the Kel-Tecs (P-32, P-3AT, and PF-9) are pretty good IMO. A little long, but not heavy, which to me is the biggest sin a gun maker can make, excessively heavy trigger pull.
My dad has the pakerized version I have a blued PF-9. The parkerizing looks pretty good, the blueing kind of looks like crap. I would drop the extra money for a parkerized gun.
Bond's PPK was in .32 ACP.
Looks more like a .380 to me.
His first was a Beretta 418 in .25 ACP.
The Walther PPK, true, was 7.65 x 17 mm Browning or .32 ACP.
I really like his new Walther P99. Is it 9 x 19 mm or .40 S&W?
(sorry for the threadjacking)
That doesn't even look like a PPK! PPK's don't have frame mounted safeties.
That actually looks like one of those Colt Mustangs in .380, though it really looks like a combination between one of those and a PPK.
I'd be willing to bet his new gun is 9MM, being that he's British and such. As I understand it .40 S&W is kind of an American cartridge.
