    Fondled 2 pistols at the store today

    Don't worry, I haven't found fault with the 101 and I'm not looking to replace it. I went in to grab ammo for the AR for a range trip tomorrow to run my new 4x32 scope through it's paces and I decided to take a quick peek at the cases.

    #1 Kel Tec PF9 - I have been eyeing these for awhile. There are a few situations where I would like a deep concealment piece and my 101 is just a bit on the chunky side. I was really impressed when I got one in my hand. I was considering the CM9 for awhile but I like the extra round that PF9 carries. Funny side note - When the guy hands it to me he says "The trigger is HORRIBLE! Long and heavy! I take it, safety check it and squeeze the trigger and immediately think "This guys on crack! This trigger is like butter!". Then I remembered that I have spent that last few months shooting my 101 pretty much exclusively in DA. Before I started shooting a lot of DA wheel gun I probably would have agreed with him but at this point a PF9 trigger feels like a vacation for my finger lol. Either way I think I will be picking one of these up in the next few weeks.

    #2 H&K P2000SK - The only reason I picked it up was it was in the next case over from the Kel Tecs and I wanted to see "What the fuss was all about". I did indeed see what all the fuss was about! It felt great in hand and had a dream like trigger. The placement of the trigger release was a annoyance for me and it's a bit on the chunky side at 1.33 inches wide but overall I have to say I liked it and would definitely be interested in shooting one. If it shot as good as it feels I would consider picking one up. I really like the handle length. I don't think it's a class by itself but I refer to it as Coofficers size. Basically a sub compact handle length that I can still get my pinky on.

    I almost went to the LGS to fondle some guns last week, but then I remembered land taxes were due yesterday.

    So which one are you gettin'?

    Beware of those "run in the gun store to get ammo" trips. They can be very expensive. You like the PF9 better than the LC9?

    I prefer the PF9 for a couple of reasons.

    No external safety
    No Magazine disconnect safety
    No butt ugly loaded chamber indicator

    I went by my closest LGS today and did some "winder shoppin." They had a nice Sig P250 with both the .40S&W and .357Sig barrels and 3 mags for $500. DAO and night sights. They had a nice FNX .40 too and I really liked the features of it (DA/SA can carry it cocked and locked or de-cock). I also held a Colt New Agent. Sweet and beautiful small 1911 in .45, but the price tag is over a grand...ouch!! I might unload several of my other guns I don't carry and pick one of those up.

    This is also the only HK I've ever had an interest in. My friend has one, but I've never loved one enough to swallow the price!

    Here is another reason for the Keltec PF9. I just got my kit yesterday and put in 100 rounds through it with CCI MiniMags. Ran great. This kit is great for practice !!! I hope this helps. God Bless

    Have you held a HK P30 or HK45? They're amazing.

    The HK P2000sk is indeed a superlative pistol. Last Friday I took it and a USPc to the range with a few other smaller carry type guns, both Kahrs. I first shot about 15 mags through the Kahrs, then I switched to the HKs. I'd forgotten how sweet, how soft and pleasant these guns are to shoot. Yes, it's a bit chunky, but it is soo good, so fine, so... HK. Money well spent.

    I found the PF9 to be harsh to shoot. Trigger in mine was not smooth and the gun made my hand hurt. Concealment is great, though.

    I traded my PF9 for a CW9 and the extra money was well worth it. Great trigger, light weight, and good ergonomics.
