I have a P3AT I've had for many years, and my wife has a P32. The .380 is not what I'd call desirable to shoot at the range, it's a bit unruly when fired repeatedly. It serves its function though as a small personal defense weapon. My wife carries the P32 everyday. The .32 has a much more manageable recoil, and she's fires at least 50 rounds when we go to the range with it. I carry the .380 during the summer when I need something more concealable given the less cover in hot weather. Neither of them ever have any issues. I've owned and carried the P3AT for about 8 years now. It's very tolerant of pocket lint to. I've never stripped and cleaned it now that I think about it. Better go home and do that tonight.

My first sub compact years ago was a P11 9 mm back in the mid 90's when they first came out.

Great little gun. My only complaint with KT's are the heavy triggers but for a "contact distance" pocket gun the price point is excellent and there reliable all day long in my experience.

I purchased a kel tec p11 a few months back just because it was cheap and I had the money. First thing I did was get finger extensions and a trigger shoe. But to me the trigger pull was still bad I could not fire as fast as I was used to and that bothered me also no matter how much practice I put in at 15 rds I could not get a good group on it after months also that cheapy plastic rear sight started to wear down very fast because of how it sat in my holster.....I sold it a few weeks ago and bought more ammo for my sr40c I will say it was a reliable gun and kel tecs customer service is great I won't fault anyone for carrying one
