Possibly considering purchasing one.
-It is a seriously scary thought that there are subsets of American society that think being intellectual is a BAD thing...
Don't do it Rollo. Mine was the biggest POS ever and the only gun I've ever traded.
The other slim 9mm options are much better.
I don't carry a gun to look for or start a fight. I carry one to finish a fight I never wanted to be in.
Revolvers, “more elegant weapons for a more civilized age.”
I would also suggest a different single 9. I purchased a PF9 to carry on the days I couldn't carry my sr9c. No problems with the first 100 rounds then 3 light strikes in 4 magazines...and that was after the suggested fluff and buff. Cleaned the firing pin and channel then 2 more light strikes in the next 5 magazines (in the first 3 two were blazer and one federal 115gr...last two were wwb 115gr). I have not had the problem of late but will never trust it enough to carry it. Picked up a Kahr cm9 two weeks ago...the pf9 is the only gun I have that I regret buying.
I will be the odd one. I love my PF9 has ran flawlessly from the start. It will run anything I feed it. Easy to conceal does have a long trigger but not bad once you get used to it.

no issues with any of my PF-9's. I did the feed ramp buff before I ever fired any of them. Amazing little pistols in the right hands.
Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.
I have nothing but love for mine. It's always by my side.

Can't vote ... yet cuz, mine is in the mail
Get it, strip it, clean it, lube it up, and give it a shot!! Can't go wrong for the price and Kel-Tec's CS is second to none.
If you clean it real good, lube and grease it up real good, run some 75 to 100 Federal 115gr ammo down its throat, you should be OK. Wait to see how it runs before you Fluff & Buff it.
Get a parker-slide or hard chrome.
NO LIMP WRIST ... NO PROBLEM
Once I get mine I'll post a report.
No problems here. Runs like it is supposed to. The only thing I did to ours is add a Hogue rubber overgrip to the thing.
Good pistol for what it is designed for.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

If you do go for it het the houge grip its a lifesaver mine was good out of the boxstill did the fluff and buff on it to make sure. I agree there are better pistols out there but mine has been a decent little gun.
nary an issue with mine and I love the +1 extension!
Mine was the worst handgun I've ever owned. It was eating itself where the front barrel lug and slide meet. It had FTE issues. It didn't seem to like to feed Winchester jhps. Mag drops with +p. Sold it for scrap, and bought an LC9.

The pf9 is not for every one. I got mine used from some one who did not like it. it shoots real good for me. and its my main carry on some days.
If you are interested in one, find some one with one that will let you shoot it or find a range with one for rent and try it. This will give you an idea of if you will like it.
of course I say try it before you buy it on all guns, if at all possible. All you will be out is ammo cost. ;)
by the way I did not vote because mine was used.
