Browsing this forum piqued my interest in Kel Tec mouse guns, and lurking here brainwashed me into buying a brand new hard chrome P3AT, which I got today. Fit and finish exceed those other KT's that I've examined in the past. Barrel to frame lock-up--front and back--is outstanding with almost no movement where barrel hood contacts breech face. I detected no rough contact surfaces but did polish slightly with Flitz in a couple places so I could say that I fluffed and buffed too.
The little pistol functioned without flaw for 50 rounds and shot to point of aim at 15 yards. I prefer it to the LCP which I also own. The Ruger works ok but lacks the trim sleekness of the P3AT. The KT .380 has got soul--like a Browning Auto-5 shotgun or Win M-94 30-30, or a S&W M-10. 50 years of intense pistol and revolver shooting tell me to carry the P3AT and range play with the other.
I look forward to interacting with ya'll and learning a few tricks.
