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.

You are either pro gun or pro crime.

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

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.
