    Lightbulb Keltec PF-9

    A quick word and review on this gun: Bought it yesterday for summer carry. Loaded it's 18.1 ozs. Accurate from 11 yards. Fed FMJ and DPX hollowpoints with no problem. It is not a Glock, in that you have to let the trigger return fully for a complete reset. But it is much thinner than a Glock, about half the price, holds 7+1 of 9mm (verses 5 in my j frame) and fits nicely in SmartCarry or IWB carry. If weight is a big concern with you as it is with me, take a look at the Keltec PF-9. I don't think you can beat it for the price.
    Just my 2 cents!

    You've got a GREAT carry gun there!! They have a good following when you can find em! I have one on order thru the store I work at, Price is 279.95 less my discounts......They had several and the guns flew out the door.... Price point is a seller as well as the Kel-Tec reputation........Picture a P11 keltec but only MUCH slimmer!!

    How's the trigger pull in comparison to the P11?

    Much better than a P11, but I swear the trigger itself is the same one they use on the P11. It's too curved and pushes into the trigger finger. I am trying to file it down but have not got it right yet. The trigger pull is ok, but it's not like a Glock. The PF-9 trigger pull is longer and heavier, just like a revolver.

    I looked at the Keltec a little, but I had concerns about the construction, fit and finish. Also read several reviews where it was sensitive to ammunition and jammed some.

    You can't beat the price, just be consistent with the ammo you put thru it and break it in.

    I think I'll keep my P3AT. For the price and concealment, you can't beat it. Steve48

    The Ammo problems were on the earlier models and have been fixed with the addition of a longer feedramp. Although it does jam w/ a limp wrist.

    I can't find a gun shop in Central Texas that has a PF9. I finally settled for a Bersa Thunder CC 380. It was a good choice and is an excellent concealed carry pistol.
