Ruger LCP or Keltec P3AT

If you were to pick either a Ruger LCP or the Keltec P3AT which would you choose and why? Anyone one with feedback on either I'd appreciate hearing about your experience with them.

The Keltec with the clip extension felt better in my hand than the Ruger. W/O the extension both felt like shit. Shot the Keltec with and without the finger extension and it made a world of difference ( the extension did ). The Keltec is my daily carry.

Neither! Walther PPK-S dead nuts on accurate!

If I had to go with either of the choices it would be the Ruger they are just like any other Ruger you can use them like a hammer and still expect them to perform!

I have the ruger and love it. The grip is a whole lot better with the ext. It is a little hard to hang on to without the grip ext. The gun is very light and i can put it in my pocket for the day and forget about it until the need arises.

I carry the LCP. I fired both the Ruger and the KelTec and I liked the feel of the LCP more.


I have a buddy that bought an extra LCP that he is looking to sell if your interested.

I own both. I prefer the feel of the LCP myself. Both shoot almost exactly the same. No problems with the LCP. The P3AT has had a few ejection problems.
I carry the Ruger LCP

If you don't mind get me some info/price about it I'd appreciate it.

It probably wouldn't be for a couple week's though as I just picked up a Ruger GP100.

I'd do the Ruger. None of my reasons are scientific enough for DFWS, but it is what I'd do.
