    It's basically a P11 with a better trigger pull and a safety. A lot better trigger pull I might add. And the finish is better. They had some issues with them to begin with, but from what I've read mostly ironed now at this point.

    They come with a lifetime warranty as well for what that's worth.

    For my money right now? Kel-tec. Once Skyy has been on the market a little bit and gets a chance to prove itself,then maybe. Looks to be a very promising firearm though.

    +1 with SammyIamToday.

    Got two of them, like 'em and plan to get their MPX-9 single stack 9mm when it's finally released. BTW, I paid $220 for my first CPX-1 in Jan '06 and $239 for the second gun in Nov' 06.

    Good review-thanks!

    I'll give 'em a couple of months then decide.

    Skyy

    Their facility is a few miles from the range where I work. I got to fire several that some of their workers brought in to test fire. I thought they were good competition to the KT at the time. Lately I keep seeng Skyys with broken safeties, and the occasional broken hammer. The levers are snapping off at the cross pin. I don't see the need for a safety in a pistol like that, especially if it's going to be a weak point. The Skyy uses its own magazine, while the KT uses the readily available S&W 59-69 series mags. And I wasn't real happy with the owner or president or whoever doing the B.S. thing on some gun boards, but I can get over that, I guess appologies were made.

    All things considered, I'd pick the KT, if for no other reason than I have a stack of 59 and 69 magazines lying around.

    I have one, it is a good carry gun. Ran 200 rds thru it with no issues. Fit and finish is very good, smooth, but long trigger pull. You must completely release the trigger for it to reset and recoil is stout for a 9mm are the only complaints.

    Thumbs down SKYY = cheap= == not reliable

    I went to qualify for my concealed carry in south carolina this past saturday and was at the door talking with one of the instructors and in walked an older gentlman with his gen 2 SKYY 9 mm. well after a few comments of him saying how much he liked it and me and the instructor both kind of saying" we'll see " the class was started. He shot with me in qualifying, as we were shooting, I was lane 5, he was 2, the instructor kept stopping for lane 2. Needless to say he did not get through his 3rd set of 5 shots due to mechanical malfunction. After seeing what I have heard and read with my own 2 eyes I will say never my life on the line and a SKYY in my hand, but hopefully in the bad guys hand, cause good chance he wont even get a roound off. Please dont get me wrong, im not trashing these guys, but if your life is hanging in the balance and you had not been told the good and bad, you might of been carrying this thing and it may just do what it has done for so many other people, malfunction. Spend the money on a little bit nicer, more reliable brand. Im not a ruger guy, but I recently got the LC9 and love it. Great finish, reiable, shoots great for a small pistol w/ 9mm shell. ANd oh yeah is only about 100 more dollars than that SKYY. Is your life worth being cheap? Mine is not. Sorry this si long, but felt like it needed to be said.

    P.S. - My instructor said they got in 5 brand new gen 2 SKYY from the manufactor I guess. 2 did not work directly out of the box. She said 2 of the other 3 fell to peices basically after putting 50 or so rounds through them.

    the first generation was TERRIBLE and the latest offering is way better
    but at the end of the day its a low cost PF9 copycat that I would never own

    I have never actually read anything good about them. I would suggest just saving up and getting the Kel Tec.
