Kel-Tec P3AT


The Kel-Tec P3AT is a semi-automatic pocket pistol chambered in .380 ACP.

The P3AT weighs a little more than half a pound loaded, so Kel-Tec proudly boasts it is the lightest .380 ACP pistol available.

The P3AT was developed from the P-32, which uses a locked-breech system typically used for larger calibers. It’s where the backwards force is absorbed by the spring instead of the frame. The P3AT has a double-action trigger, so there’s more resistance on the pull and it’s tougher to accidentally discharge when retrieving from a pocket or holster.

The .380 ACP is a popular self-defense cartridge comparable to the 9mm.
Kel-Tec recommends the P3AT for concealed carry.
