    IMO, the PF9 is a bargain. Good bang for the buck. Shoots well and I haven't had any misfires so far. Fits easily in front pocket.
    Others to consider for pocket carry are: Kimber Solo ( my favorite), Kahr CM9/PM9.

    Snubbie revolver

    I no longer trust any 9mm semi auto smaller than a Glock 26

    I've got a PF9 and have had some issues with it, but those got worked out. I've enjoyed working on the gun and becoming familiar with it. There is good support out there if it does have issues. But I consider it more of a backup gun than a primary gun.

    I have a PF9 and it has worked great. It gets carried either in a kydex pocket holster or an IWB rig like a hybrid crossbreed. I also have a MIC trigger holster whereas if it's not being carried its on the gun. All according to how I'm dressing for the day I either carry a PF9 or a smith 642 most of the time.

    There are a ton of threads on the PF9, do a search. In short, it is very light and slim but is very unpleasant to shoot and Kel Tec quality is very questionable. You might be like me and get one that works well, or you may get one that is a total piece of junk.

    There's no way I'd buy one a PF9. I bought a Beretta Nano and I love it.

    I had a PF9 but eventually decided I preferred a snubbie revolver for that role. I experience no functional problems with the PF9.

    I have a 'hard chrome' version. Really like it for what it is.
    I've had zero issues (600+ rounds). Trigger isn't great...but it has improved.
    Not a range gun...but very light/easy to conceal.
    I recommend the hard-chrome...more likely to be without issues.
    From what I hear, Kel Tec has good customer service.
    It's not a Kahr or a shield...but it has its place.

    I agree. I have the cheap blued version, and the only difference is that I have to keep mine wiped down with a silicon rag, or else it's gonna rust. It does the job, though.

    PF9's are fine, and work fine as well. To me, easy to shoot. Some folks complain about recoil, but it's nothing different than you would feel out of any 9mm gun that size. I put the little rubber piece around the grip, so the grip wouldn't cut into my hand, and that has worked great. I can sit down and put a couple of hundred rounds thru one with no issues. I'ld stick with the 9mm, and not the .380's, .38's, etc. .... you'll be much better off.

    My PF9 was a lemon and the biggest POS I have ever fired. I'd trust my life to a Hi Point before I'd trust it to a Kel Tec.

    i think that the PF-9 is a great, affordable, reliable gun. the Ruger LC-9 is mostly a tarted up PF-9.

    from what i've read on this site, most folks are very happy with the gun. some have had problems requiring a trip or two back to the factory, but KelTec's customer service seems to be quite good.

    i chose a Kahr CM-9, mostly because it felt more solid to me than the PF-9, but the KelTec was my second choice.

    i usually carry the CM over my S&W 642 J-frame revolver mostly because i shoot the pistol MUCH better than i do the revolver.

    IMO, as Jeff Cooper once said about the Colt Lightweight Commander, "A gun to be carried much, and shot little."

    My general opinion is if you don't like the LC9, you won't like the PF-9. The trigger pulls are similar with the PF-9 not being quite as long. Being lighter than the LC9, the PF-9 recoil is snappy. I haven't owned either so I can only give my opinion based on the time I spend shooting when I rented them. If you are looking for a ultra compact 9mm and don't want to spend a lot I would recommend a Kahr CM9. I haven't owned one of these either but I preferred the trigger pull to either the LC9 or PF-9.

    I purchased a used PF9 about a year agao and carry it often. Hasn"t had a single hiccup. A bit big for pocket carry for me. I use a belt clip. Carries and conceals nicely.
