We recommend against inexperienced shooters owning auto pistols in the first place, novice gun owners should start out with revolvers, not with autos. Small autos by their nature must have stiff recoil springs, and that makes the slide hard to operate in order for a person to chamber the first round or unload the pistol. For those with little strength in their grip, and who must have an auto, get a Beretta 21, 950, or .32 Tomcat where a person doesn't have to manually cycle the pistol's slide. Photo shows a representative that we had in stock at press time of the highly popular Kel-Tec P3AT .380 Double Action Pistol. Black plastic pistols are definitely not our forte or favorite kind of merchandise; we grudgingly admit, however, that the Kel-Tec is a good gun, strange and non-traditional as it is. The only reason we stock these is because they’re popular, and the little company does deserve credit for innovation and simplicity. Since the late 1980s, we have personally sold over 500 Kel-Tecs, over the counter to local customers who actually use and carry them, and we have sent fewer than 10 of them back to the factory for service. Any time a product has less than 3% return ratio; any time, that is, that 3 or less out of 100 of any particular item ever requires repair or service, it is a good product. Factory specs are as follows: caliber .380 ACP; semi-auto double action only; 6 + 1 capacity; ultra high impact polymer grip and grip frame; blue finish; integrated sights; weight empty 8.5 oz; 5 pound trigger pull; 2 1/2 inch barrel. Grip frames come colored as we can get them, all of us dealers take whatever the factory and distributor wants to send us. They come in black, green, and gray grip frames. Photos show a blue slide, gray grip frame #00071 variant we had at press time. Own one of these good, flat little pistols, brand new in box, for only $ 219.95.

Don't let your buddies use your account. Registered user must be the buyer, with his or her own money. Buying firearms and related items for other people can result in felony charges. Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
GA Pay buyers are NOT charged until we confirm we have the item and are ready to ship it. The same thing is true for phone-in, fax-in, and mail-in payments. In this respect, and in several others, Guns America outshines all its competitors. This is the best firearms website there is, hands down.
