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 2¢.

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.

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.
