  • Kel-Tec PF-9 or P-11

    I have the chance to pick up one of these, strictly for concealled carry purposes. What does anyone know about these guns and what is the best place/price (have an FFL).

    Really looking at one of these due to price and how carried. Any ideas on the differences between the two and what not (good and bad info)?

      I was always wary of KelTec until a friend showed me a PF9 his wife had in her purse. I really liked the size, the design and the feel, and it got great reviews. I somewhat reluctantly picked one up for $240 new back in early 2007 (the shop was getting nearly the same amount for used ones, so I figured I would not lose much if I didn't like it). That was pretty soon after they came out I believe. I still own it, though I never felt comfortable with just carrying a 9mm single stacker, so it's usually a "backup to my backup" role. However it is the most concealable pistol I own for summertime wear (inside the waistband with comfortable shorts) and also fits perfectly in certain situations where other pistols do not. I have put about 1200 rounds through it I would say, just barely broken it in, and have had zero issues. the PF9 has proven to be surprisingly durable and reliable, and I admit I am impressed, I was not expecting to like it as much as I do. One complaint is that the stock plastic rear sight rubs against the retention band of both of my holsters, and is getting worn down on the right side from that. Honestly, it's not a bad little piece of kit but it's size is the best thing it's got going for it.

      If I were to purchase one single backup pistol...I would go for one of the newer subcompact .45s. My main carry pistol is a Kimber Pro Carry .45 and is wearable in about 80% of situations, however for those rare times when it is not practical, I wish I had a smaller and more concealable .45 instead of the PF9. And that's exactly what I plan to do at the next gun show I go to :)

        The nutnfancy review on YouTube agrees with you but adds that it has a long DA trigger pull and due to it's light weight it tends to have muzzel whip when fired but it was very accurate and reliable out of the box.

          That looooong trigger pull is a li'l prob on my Khar CW9, too....It's actually kind of a nuisance.....considering trading for something a bit faster......

            Yeah she's a handful with +P rounds, let me tell ya! I've fired a box of them through it, and have some in the mag at all times, but the manual cautions about using them too much in that little frame.
