I like the small size and small price. The sights were way off out of the box but they are adjustable; so when I get the time I\'ll zero them in. I use a Glock on duty and this is exactly like it and simple to break down and clean. I would like to get a good holster and see if it will work itself in with my current concealed carry rotation. Night sights would have made this a super find.

I was looking for a small pocket CC for the times when I can't or don't want to carry my Kahr CM9 (love that one!). I read many, many reviews and decided on the .380 pocket CC that started the whole trend (and the one Ruger copied). Shipping was a bit longer than I have experienced the other times I purchased from Buds, but nothing that was going to ding a review. Gun showed up at FFL in great shape, no marks and all parts functioned as they should. The next day I ran 100 rounds through it of standard ball ammo and only had two FTEs and that was due to limp wrist on my part because this little thing is snappy given very low weight and slightly sweaty hands. For range work I added mag finger extensions and Hogue grip - helps a lot. However, for carry I removed those items because this gun is all about hiding its footprint and quick draw when in a pocket. The sites are basically non-existent, but that is on purpose. Regardless, it did not affect how I shot it - 4" pattern at 15', 6" pattern at 20' and 8" pattern at 25 feet. I thought not having a slide hold open would be annoying, but I have to remember this is not a range gun, it's a CC and I feel it will do its job nicely if/when needed to. I would rather carry my 9mm all the time, but reality is NO ONE wants to get hit by a bullet - period. I know some reviews state they got "Monday" guns, but I would still recommend this CC because of size, weight and OK caliber. Many CC reviews say ball ammo may be the best for penetration and that is what I use when carrying. I paired this up with a $6 pocket holster sold by Buds and it all works great!

Trigger pull is heavy and long. That's not a bad thing. The gun has no safety nor does it lock back on the last round. Has a sharp kick because it's a light and small gun. This is well suited for deep conceal carry. I suggest putting one round in the pipe via the mag and then reloading the 6th. round into it for a 6+1 configuration. This gun is for CLOSE range. Don't expect to pick off something at 25 yards, ain't gonna happen. 10 feet or less. CLOSE personal protection, that's what this gun is for and it will work for that. I would clean it first, then put about 50 rounds in it for a break in. It ate every round I feed it and never jammed. If you try to put over 100 rounds through it, it'll start to gum up. It's a personal pocket gun, not an all day at the range one. Keep it clean and well oiled and it will do its job.This is a good gun.

I ordered a Kel Tec 380 P3at from Bud's Guns on 6/22/12. The shipping was fast as I picked up my pistol from my FFL dealer only 3 days later. I was extremely pleased with the P3at as it is very light and extremely concealable. As a retired law officer, I am armed at all times and with the P3at I can carry it in a pocket holster in the front pocket of my jeans or shorts. I have fired approx. 3 magazines through the pistol with no FTF or FTE. This pistol is awesome, I highly reccommend it and want to say Bud's is GREAT and when you order from them, there are no surprises and you will be extremely satisfied. THANKS BUDS.

Well made, very light and fits well in waist band holsters. Not a gun to run 100 rds through at the range every time you go, but a great little CCW for the $, ran 75 rounds through it day one, 3 FTE, no FTF. Very accurate at 7 yards. Hope to see the FTE to improve now that i have pulled it part and cleaned it myself. No slide lock which takes some getting used to.

After 5 weeks at Kel-Tec for repair, my P3AT was back in action. Took the pistol out to the range yesterday and put 48 rounds of FMJ through her without any incident! Looks like Kel-Tec fixed the problem (FTE). Kel-Tec changed many internal components and polished the feed ramp. They also recommend that I not use any cheap aluminum/steel casing ammo. Called Kel-Tec twice and both times they were very courteous and professional. Other than the 5 week delay, I think Kel-Tec's customer service is good. It's nice to hace my CCW back.
