    I saw that on another forum.....I just wonder what the turn around is. I guess I need to find a FFL to ship to?

    CDNN's pretty fast. I ordered my FN High Power from them last year. Handgun shipping is $12 IIRC too.

    may i ask why you want something that small?
    I doubt id feel comfortable with any caliber smaller than .38 special

    You should have sent it back, they come from the factory with a long 5 pound trigger.

    Just about any store or show should have them and you should be able to take one home for under $250 easy.

    Because they make excellent anytime guns or BUG's. There are times when I just can't carry anything larger.

    Its not like a .380 is THAT much smaller.

    I would rock one for a summer carry pocket gun in a heartbeat. :wiggle:

    Because "a .25 in the hand is worth more than a .45 on the nightstand."

    Thats why I want one! I got a .45 Sub-compact that i can carry fine with normal shirt and jeans. But in Texas it is to damn hot to wear jeans all the time. I want one i can just slide in my pocket.

    the p3at is a gun you pretty much have to buy locally. a good price online or via mail order is always killed by shipping and transfer fee.

    Just have to find a good FFL. $209 from CDNN, $12 shipping, then $10 transfer gives $231 which is a fair deal.

    i got mine for $209 though....... thats about what they are going for these days
    on such a cheap pistol, i would have a hard time paying those kind of fees.

    That goes to show how the price varies by region. Around here $249 is the normal "marked" price for the Keltecs. $209 would be unheard of.

    Mine is made by RJ Hedley. Huge +1, great leather at nylon prices, durable, and very comfortable. He had been taking a break, but it looks like he's making again.
