    The better shooter?Kel-tec's PF-9 or PF-11

    Specs are close enough to make this comparison,imo
    PF-9 5.85long,4.3hi,.88wide,3.1barrel,15.5oz
    PF-11 5.6lng,4.3hi,1.04w,3.1brl,20oz so that's 4.5heavier
    The PF-11 is a 6.1lbs trig pull DOA
    PF-9 ?trig pull with da/sa styleSo is the PF-11 "potentially" the more accurate pistol because it is heavier and recoil recovery less???

    I'm actually looking into a trade for a PF9 today. Look at ktog.com for some info on both guns.

    I own a PF-9. I've held several P-11's, but haven't had the chance to shoot one... So I can't comment on which one is the better "shooter".

    I strongly prefer the PF-9. Even though the numbers look very close on paper, when you handle the PF-9 in person it's noticeably thinner and lighter than the P-11.

    I believe that they are probably equal in the shooting department except that the P11 has a wider grip,but the PF9 is more concealable.I have a P11 that carries in my cargo shorts well,and my 1911 is my jeans gun

    If "thickness' is an issue, the PF9 is the better choice in my opinion.

    Either pistol is capable of head shots at 25 yards once you learn the triggers. Both will ruin a zombie's day out to about 100 yards. What more could you ask from an ultra-compact 9mm?

    I've had a P11 for about 6 yrs and "several" PF9s. They may be about the same in accuracy but I shoot the PF9 much better probably due to lighter trigger. The P11 requires much more practice for me to be proficient beyond 5-7 yds. YMMV.

    to me the p11 shoots better. but most of the time it is hard to tell the differents between the two when shooting.

    I own both. The PF9 is my EDC and the P11 is my glovebox gun for when I travel. The P11 is a better range gun as it doesn't hurt as bad, but the PF9 is a pleasure to carry. Especially in the South Texas heat where I wear really light and thin shirts most of the year.

    I own a PF9, the trigger is way to long IMO. Follow up shots are much slower than compared to my G26. The sights on the Pf9 are not fast acquisition sights to say the least. The pf9 is also very snappy and slightly kicks out of place in my hand. It almost always kicks the partial pinky hold off the gun. I have never shot the P11 but I'm guessing it's a better pistol.

    Mine shoot equally well, but I prefer the smaller size & trigger of my PF9
