    OK, I have been dying to ask somebody this for a while now. (Sorry to hijack your thread.)

    What is the fascination with the LCP? It looks likean exact copy of theKel-Tec, but people (here in Utah at least) arewilling to shellout $500 dollars for them!

    And on top of that, .380 ammunition is eitherexpensive as hell, or non-existent!

    Shooting the little bastards at the range is no fun either, is concealment really that important?

    Sorry... /[rant off]

    The only advantages I can see with the LCP is that it looks a little more de-horned (rounded corners) and it has a slide-lock which I think the Kel-Tec lacks.

    To me, the price difference isn't worth it. But that factors in my personal financial goals, etc.

    If I were tobuy one, it would be the Kel-Tec in stainless, which I think is still less than the LCP, depending on where you find it.

    As far as concealability, some folks just have habits, clothes, or venues where something that size is wanted. Heck, I'd even go for the smaller ones by NAA, but they're all-metal and noticeably heavier.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    I won't supporta company (Ruger) that rips off the product of another company (Kel-Tec) and then blatantly lies about it. 'nuff said.

    No, you wouldn't buy the Kel-Tec in stainless because they don't make it in stainless. They do make a hard chrome version which many seem to like. Kel-Tec will tell you that it is for corrosion protection only and not for appearance so don't expect it to be "pretty" up close. That said, I like the looks of my hard chrome P3ATs better than my blue'd ones! They also make one in Parkerized which I like most.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Don't let these guys tarnish your view of the gun. A guy at the gun club bought one and the next thing I knew his two buddies bought them too. Obviously they really like them.

    I have one of the chrome models and habe never had a problem with it. From what I can gather the chrome ones don't seem to have the problems that a few of the blued ones. As for the recoil and so on I find it fun to shoot and less recoil that many other guns. And yes I can slip it in my pocket without the worry about whether it is concealed or not. It may be a .3AT rather than a 9 or foty but I feel comfortable with it.

    Yup, but I'm not giving mine up. I would suggest to keep looking in the stores and checking the auction sites. You can find the P32 and the P11 fairly easily but the P3AT and LCP are harder but not impossible.

    The P3AT has its place. Its so light you can actually forget its there. Its no fun to shoot though (kicks like a mule without a lot to hold onto) nor do I trust my aim with it beyond 10 yards or so (being DAO and so damn small you can forget double taps). I wouldn't part with mine though. Depending on what I am wearing it is sometimes my only concealed option.

    All that being said, if you can get away carrying a 3" 45, you'll feel a lot better about it. I carry both depending on what I am wearing, but definitely appreciate the accuracy and shooting qualities of my 45 over the 380...

    I saw an Ruger LCP at Bens Loan in Renton for $319 today.. they said they were getting 3 more soon. It felt a lot better in hand than the P3AT...

    What is the difference between newer generation and older? How would I know which one I have?

    Look at the extractor on the right side of the slide. If yours is more angular shaped and has a big allen head bolt at the rear end of it you have a 2nd Gen. If it is perfectly rectangular and skinny you have a 1st Gen. 1st Gens have an octagonal shaped slide and 2nd Gens have a more square slide as they went to bar stock for the 2nd Gen slides.

    I'll figure out how to post a pic here in a second.

    -adamsesq


    ETA: Sorry, I don't have a picture of the extractor side but this one shows how the grip is differently shaped as well. Upper Right is 2nd Gen:




    Found the right side picture. 2nd Gen is upper again.

    Thanks for that info.

    Looks like the second generation is what has been produced since some time in 2005. I got mine new in 2008 so it's no surprise that it's second generation.

    That's a nice looking P3AT jeepers. And it's parkerized too which adds a bit of value and makes it one of my favorites!
