I shot my buddy's P3AT and didn't like it. I bought the LCP last year, but ended up selling it. IMO it was better built than the P3AT, but it was too small for me. The trigger pull was too long and it would jump out of my hand every time I pulled the trigger. I ended up buying a Kahr PM9 which I freakin' love. You should take a look at the Kel-Tec PF9, its a tad bigger. If its between the Kel-Tec or Ruger I would go with the Ruger. Just my .2 cents.
Academy had it for $349. It came with an extra magazine, gun luck (of course) and a pretty neat plastic box for storage. More expensive than the Kel-Tec I know but I got what I could find. Now just to find some ammo....geesh.
I have both guns - The KT P3AT (one of the early ones I bought new when they first came out) had a few tough break in problems, but is running smooth now...even without being sent in for factory modifications.
I like the LCP better, as it is finished nicer and ran fine out of the box with no problems (it's a 370 series with diamond stamp). Paid $329 for it at Academy in early December before the MSRP went up $20. I carry it in a Desantis Nemisis pocket holster ($18 at Cabelas).
Just got some Monarch .380 94 gr JHP @$15.99/box of 50 at Academy in Round Rock. They had just rolled it off the delivery truck by 11:30 Friday morning.
almost picked up an LCP today...held it in my hand and it is just way too small...guess i have to stick with the bersa 380. i was hoping to get the lcp because it is much smaller. on the bright side...academy in corpus christi was stocking up on monarch 380 when i got there...woo hoo!
