NRA Gun of the Week: Kel-Tec P3AT Pistol

A few years following the launch of Kel-Tec’s P-32 polymer pistol, a more potent variant built around the .380 ACP cartridge was introduced—the P3AT. This recoil-operated semi-automatic pistol tips the scales at 8.3 ozs., empty, and features a 2.7” barrel with a capacity of six rounds in the magazine.
