The P3AT and its clone the Ruger LCP were both miserable to shoot which is why I have a Sig P238. I had an original P11 that I bought from a dealer that was a gunsmith. He modified the P11's he sold. It had a decent trigger and functioned flawlessly. 1 failure to fire due to a bad primer in over 6K rounds. I currently have 2 Sub2K's that run very well. Neither have had a malfunction since the 1st couple of magazines. Taurus supposedly has upped their game. It could not have gotten much worse. I had a PT92 that was a disaster and their customer service was just as bad. On the other hand I had a PT22 that I put over 15K rounds through over 19 years when the frame broke. Taurus replaced it without question. No way it could be repaired.
