Nothing wrong with that combo. I'm not a Keltec fan, but hey if it works for you that's all that matters!!!

Thanks for sharing.. I have a Kel-tec PF-9, and while they are no safe queen, the do what you bought it for.

The Ruger is a good carry...but the grip is far too large for concealment...kind of defeats the purpose. I'd go with the stock grip and shoot 110 grain .38 special Corbon DPX + P out of it. If you want to fire hot .357 mag rounds...go up to the 3 inch barrel GP100 and do it right.
I, too, am not a Kel Tec fan...or any small auto for that matter...they are all prone to malfunction.
It all comes down to going down the dark holes after monsters. That’s what it’s all about; when everyone else is huddled around the campfire, somebody has to go out and fight.

+1 on Sp101 Great solid gun !!

I like both of your guns, but I like 9mm the best, so
the pf9 is on my list of guns to buy as well.
if you don.t mind me asking , what type of ammo does
it like ? IE brand and grain bullet.

both are good guns for the job.

Both are very good choices. I have and carry the PF9 all the time as one of my primary guns.

The PF-9 For the range, I just use whatever I can get my hands on. Range reloads or Blazer Brass and some Speer GoldDot Luger+P 124 GRHP because it was on sale. And is what I carry for CC. There are SO Many more ppl here that could tell you what is best. I am not to with it with all the weight issues. I may be carrying the wrong ammo for it. Kel-Tec says it’s ok to shoot limited amounts of +P and that’s what I do. But I heard ppl shoot +P all the time thru thousands of rds. Without a problem. I just shoot a mag or so, so I get some pratice with what I carry.

+1 on the Ruger. I have never had a centerfire S&W revolver misfire.
