Because of positive reviews, I purchased a PF-9 after receiving my CCW permit. Being so light, it has a lot more kick than my Ruger P95, but I can consistently make a tighter pattern with the PF-9. I clean and oil it after every session, put about 300 rounds through, without any problem whatsoever. With a price over $100 less than a Taurus and Ruger I compared with, this was a steal. I love it! - G. L.
Well I\'ve been waiting since June 2010 for it to arrive, finally got it first week of Feb 2011. It is light and fun to shoot. I have been storing 22 mag ammo since last summer and it will not take me long to shoot it all. The two 30 round clips did not last long enough so I ordered 2 more from Kel-Tec they arrived within 7 days. So far no problems or stove pipe. I hope others will get their PMR soon. Kel-Tec guns are just fun I own several and they are all great. - D. P.
I purchased a PF-9 as a concealled carry weapon after realizing my Glock 27 was too heavy and bulky for me to be comfortable with here in Florida where heavy clothing is rarely worn. I wear the PF-9 on my ankle or in a pocket and because it is lighter and thinner I am very comfortable. I lightly oiled the gun before going to the range and shot 100 rounds of Federal FMJ without any problems. The cost of the PF-9 was roughly one half of the Glocks. If I had only known then what I know now, but time will tell. Right now I feel the PF-9 is definately worth trying , especially considering the cost. - V. C.
I fired 50 Aguila FMJs and 25 Aguila hollow point rounds through my P3-AT .380 today. It was the first time I had taken the pistol to the range. The Aguila brand ammunition was the only available ammo I could find, but the pistol seemed to like the stuff. First of all; no jams, no stovepipes, no feeding issues, no problems with operation what so ever. I had read that the pistol needed a break in period of about 100 rounds fired through it before it could be considered a dependable CC weapon. Maybe I purchased a Wednesday model, but my P3-AT did not have any malfunctions.
Accuracy was fairly impressive considering the length of the barrel.
I started out at seven yards from my target and fired the weapon using the “loading the trigger” method of firing. This produced baseball sized shot groups.
At fifteen yards, the weapon produced pie plate sized shot groups consistently and on occasion landed three and four shots into a softball sized area.
After 75 rounds, my index finger was sore…but it was worth the time and effort to prove to myself that the P3-AT in .380 is a dandy little sub compact pistol that I will recommend to friends and family.
3 inch groups @ 7 yards
8 1/2 inch groups at 15 yards
No malfunctions, jams etc. - J. M.
I was looking for a small c.c. gun went to local gun shop and looked around saw that the hi point guns were very cheap so that is what i looked at then i saw how big and heavy it was. I said to my self if i'm going to carry this i might as well carry my glock. Then i saw this little gun ask to see it and i was amazed how light it was and small. So i ask about it and was told verry good after break in. I bought the gun brought it home with some gold dot ammo . Could'nt wait to shoot this gun 1st clip no jams. So i cleaned the gun real good and bought some ball ammo 1st box a few misfires. 2nd box NO MISFIRES. Cleaned gun again and found that the firing pin was a little dry and need some oil. Oiled that baby up took it back out for a test fire and the firing pin was hitting the primer alot harder. I think i will have no more problems. I would recommend this gun. 1 inch groups at 7 yards. - J. R.
