    Don't really need a 9mm but want one. LC9 or Kel Tec P11?

    I guess I just like guns. I really don't need a 9mm but want one to go with my Beretta .40 and my Ruger LCP. Right in the middle. Like papa bear, mama bear and baby bear. I know it is a personal thing but I sure am confused on which 9 to buy. Kahr CM9 is nice also. What do you think?

    CM9. You need something to fill the gap between the Beretta and the LCP.

    Of your choices I went with the LC9. I really like it for what it is. The Keltec felt "cheap" to me. I carry my LC9 all day everyday. Not sure if that is your intended purpose. I would say there are better 9's depending on your intended use.

    Suggestions

    I'm going to guess you want a compact 9mm for carry purposes, given that you mentioned some small, single stack candidates.

    My two 9mm's in that category are a Kahr MK9 and a Sig P239. Both conceal well, although the Kahr MK9 is the smaller of the two. I would recommend either one for reliability and accuracy. They also have enough weight to handle 9mm +P recoil very well. They are belt guns, not pocket guns, because of the weight.

    My opinion Keltec P11, 13+1 rounds of 9mm in such a small package with the stock magazine. God Bless

    I tried different guns at a range (rent-a-gun) and picked the P-11, paid $255.00 for it and shoots great, no problems. I used Snap Caps to get used to the trigger since I was pulling to the left on the target, now it's straight shots

    Both of those are nice handguns. However, I also would suggest the Ruger LCR. Not an auto but one of the best revolvers out right now.

    I also probaby don't "need" any of the following, but I do want them.

    AR-15, AK, SKS, any 1911 .45 acp., something in .40 caliber, M1 Garand and a better M1 Carbine than the El Cheapo Universal I have that is broken.

    Lee-Enfield .303, K-98 Mauser.....well I think you get the idea.

    The Kahr is a high quality firearm, and it is a much better pistol than the LC9 and the Kel-Tec.

    Guns are just like money, you can never have too many/much.

    That being said, of the choices I'd go with the Kahr, better trigger than the other 2.

    Yep, I really wanted a LC9 and the CM9. But this new Bersa looks it could be a winner. Im waiting on the reviews to start coming in on this new gun. It could be my first 9mm.

    Just not worth the price.
