    Any of you guys carry a KelTec P11?

    Now a days my main carry gun is a Glock 26 and I love it. I just traded for another G26 so I would have an other one just in case.
    But I also have a KelTec P11 that I like to carry. The trigger is not as good on the P11 as the G26 but it is just as reliable and very accurate.
    I was just wondering if any of you guys carry a P11 on the daily basis.
    I have heard alot of bad things about the P11 on the internet, but I have never had a problem with any of my KelTecs.
    The P11 is very light and thin and still has a 10 or 12 shot mag. The only thing that is not so great on it is the heavy trigger(6.5 pounds) and they are even uglier than Glocks.
    So who carries an ugly P11?

    Got one & it goes to work everyday and sits in an enclosed fenced yard in the D.
    I have a Desantis Nemesis for it as well as the KT clip which is affixed to the RS of the frame.
    Bought in 2009 for $289 and an xtra mag $26, and a pinkie xtension for one mag.
    It has around 600 rounds out of it with ZERO issues, has about a 10.5 lb. trigger(my M&P compacts have 6.5 lb triggers and are far lighter than the KT).
    It serves a purpose of an innexpensive pistol, with very reasonable capacity, which can be left in the car in the getto, in a reasonably safe, fenced,limited access facility and if the vehicle winds up gone, I'm out little in the form of the firearm.
    I trust it will go bang with whatever ammo might be in it, and to inflict a lot of damage.

    My brother had one he bought used, and quickly found out why the previous owner got rid of it. Thing was a piece of junk. I never shot it, but trust him. He sold it ASAP and got a ruger LC9.

    I had one. Was my main carry for a while. Sold it recently and replaced it with a SR9c which is barely any bigger but has a much better trigger and sights and is easier to shoot tight groups with. Great gun for what it is if you can deal with that heavy long trigger. Think you might want to check that trigger again OP. Mine was a lot closer to 9 lbs than 6.5.

    I don't at the moment, but I'll probably find one at the Gun Show I'm going to next month. There's usually always at least one for sale that day. But, I'm hoping to find a 442 or 642.
    No matter which one I get, whether it's the P11 or the revolver, it's gonna be a backup weapon primarily.

    Have had a P11 for years...I did have a sticky magazine (not the original with the gun) that I keep just for the range, but the gun itself rides in a Nemesis faily often...the trigger is long but smooth, and the gun is reliable....I don't try to feed the sharpest HP's through it, but I do trust it...since, I believe, 1999 or so.

    Bought one 14 years ago for $225.00 new. I only bought it because I was 21, and it was all I could afford. I knock the dust off it every now and again. Although I've actually considered trading it for ammo. I guess that doesn't say too much. Everyone has their own opinion though. What works for you, and what you are comfortable with, is what's best.

    I have one and I carry it every so often. Yes, the trigger pull is tough (8.5) but it goes bang every time I pull the trigger.
    It is not my main carry but does get into the rotation at least once a week.

    Nope is at 6.5 pounds. I got the P11 from my FFL/gunsmith. He did quite a bit of work on the trigger. The reset isn't that bad either.
