    My 2 Carry options.

    Just wanted to share/show my 2 carry guns. I like ‘em both and I am very happy with them.
    Ruger SP101 2.25 in .357 Mag and a Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm. I Trust my life to both. I like the Rubber Houge grips on both. They help with the sting from the 357 Mag And the 9mm +P in the small Kel-Tec.







    Thanks for lookin'.

    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.

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

    The SP101 .357 Mag Is not right? hummm Thats a Very interesting statement.
    My Kel-Tec has about 700 rds thru it Without 1 Problem.
    (I don't shoot the last bullet so less wear on slide catch and I don't force The mag in, so no wear on the mag catch)
    P.S.
    I CC the SP101 all the time. In the pocket or on the hip. In fact when 2 cops showed up because my neighbor had attracted them, they stopped by to talk about what a goof ball crack head he is. ( it's a shame what drugs can do) I was outside my front door next to my truck when they came over. At one point I realized that my hand had casually went into my pocket and was resting on the “Too LARGE” of a handle . After a short bit the conversation turned to TV and then to my 120” HD TV and the 2 cops asked if they could see it so we went inside to watch TV and it took forever to get them to leave.

    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.
    As I have read about the Kel-Tec, with its short barrel It Needs the +P to propel it to the correct velocity for penetration and expansion. But please don’t go by my word alone as I am a novice and still learning.
