I have never had a problem with my p3at. Some say you have to break it in but mine was good out of the box.

I dont have a problem racking but my Sig 238 is easier to rack if you cock the hammer first.

Yup, another reason to love SAO or DA/SA guns!

I know it's not comfortable to shoot, but its for protection. I do trust the Ruger name and quality. If I can't get this problem fixed, that's where I'm headed

if you can take a look at the KAHR CW380, much better then the kel-tec and ruger. the CW380 is new go on their web site and look at it.

One if the reasons why I like the keltec and Ruger is because of the belt clip option. I summer carry at 6 o'clock and always wear shirts and t shirts. I'm a smaller framed guy so that configuration fits well.

Did you mean the CW9 or PM9?
Excellent guns, I moved from a Kel-tec PF9 to a Kahr, night and day difference.

However, when I bought the Kel-tec the firing pin fell out after about 50 rounds and I sent it back to the factory. When I got it back the gun was much smoother and better running, I think they went thru the whole gun. You might consider doing that if you have the time to wait for them to fix it.
