I'm thinking about picking up a kel-tec P3AT as a back up gun, any opinions on this one

Funny you should mention it but im thinking about picking one up on sunday. I hear there is no safety or slide locking lever. I guess that is the price you pay for cheap and small. Other than that I just hope it feeds reliably.

I sold mine a couple months back to my coworker for 200. I had a Handall Jr. grip sleeve from Hogue trimmed up quite to fit a bit because the pistol's so small. At the range a few of the employees had one as well. One had problems but he got it fluffed and buffed and got his extactor tuned then no more problems. Myself and the other two or three people who owned one there had never had any problems.

Oh yeah, I've used two types of hollowpoints that both fed well and three brands of ball ammo without a stutter. Hope that helps.

Well I picked up mine today at a gun show. I paid $239 + tax. The slide and frame fit isnt perfect and neither is the barrel to the slide. I can imagine what the 25 yard accuracy will be like. I cant wait to try it out.

Just got back from the range with my new kel-tec, and thought i'd give it a little review; i shot 100 rounds of rem umc 95gr FMJ and 25 rounds of Rem golden saber 102gr JHP (What i'll actually carry with it) and i didn't have one single hiccup with the gun and i was actually suprised with the accuracy i was shooting all 9's and 10's from 10yds, this is an awesome gun for the price
