I have been looking for a pocket gun.
I have looked at the P3AT but too many have had problems it seems.
Does anyone have a firmed up release date on the Ruger LCP?
Better yet, has anyone seen one at the shows?
Well they are out in different parts of the contry. Here's a kicker. A guy bought one on another forum and his recipt said Kel-Tec/Ruger on it. I think there's something going on behind the secense that we don't know about. If you put the two pistols side by side the Ruger is just a dressed up model of the KT/3AT. I guess that's why they cost about $60 more. :?:
I am understanding now, after a few phone calls, that it's due out in mid March according to Ruger.
The retail is $333 on the gun.
I have found nobody that owns one yet, but I suppose anything is possible.
All cosmetic, is the difference. I know for a fact that Kel-Tec shut down two of their production lines and put them to making the 3AT's. I live right up the road from their factory and know a few guys who work there.
Some of you other P3-AT guys correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it just the 1st generation pistols that had the extractor problems? My info was that they no longer have serious issues. I know mine shoots great, but I've only put a box or so through it. So I guess I'm not sure what Ken is talking about.
I found out that dealers have some 89,000 orders now on the books for the yet to be released LCP.
I wanted a couple of guns now and decided not to wait.
I bought a couple of the Kel-Tec P3ATs today for the wife and I.
Under $300 each and at just over 11 Oz loaded makes them hard to beat.
I must apologize to you Mr.Keninaz. I gave you some bad info . The gentleman had a receipt that said Kel-Tec/Ruger as he paid for the gun in advance. He does not have it yet and you are right they will not be out till mid March. It's my old age I think they call it dementia. Sorry.
Those little Kel-tecs are sooooooooooooooo....................cute!
I have the first generation P3AT and carry it daily. It shoots just fine! Also have the 32 and like it too. I may be in the market for the new 9 mm model but I want them to get all the bugs worked out of it first.
Gunrnr said that he experienced some issues with one of the first models that he shot, I believe. Jump in Gunrnr if you read this post.
