    KelTec PF-9

    Considering a KelTec PF-9 as a BUG to my XD 40. I love the size of this gun. I was considering the Ruger LCP but think I would feel a bit better with a 9mm over the .380. Thoughts?

    I wouldn't be too worried about the difference between .380 and 9mm when you've already exhausted your primary and have to go to your backup at that point you're in deep either way.

    I like the fit and finish of the Ruger LCP to any of the kel-tecs I've seen.

    I used to pocket carry a P3AT until I bought a PF-9. Now I'm going to sell the P3AT. The PF-9 is very compact and carries in the pocket well. 9mm ammo is easier to find and cheaper than .380, too. My Kel-Tec hasn't been recalled, either.

    I was looking at the Kel Tec's as well. I favor the P-3at
    over their 9mm. The P-3at is lighter something to think
    about if you wear it for EDC. It holds only one round less
    than the PF-9.

    I would take the lighter gun over more firepower but that is me.
    For some reason I like the green over the standard black. You can
    see it at budsgunshop..

    I have an older P3at and 2 PF9s that have been problem free. The PF9 works well for me as primary in Summer and BUG rest of year. GD124+p's avg 1120fps/350fpe out of them and shoot better for me than any of my j frames or 380. Pocket carry or IWB under light clothes works real well. None of them ever sent back for repairs.

    Okay...good point Texan. So let's call it an alternative to my XD .40...maybe a summer CCW.

    When I'm not carrying my primary, I usually tend to carry J Frames in .38 spl. If I had to find an alternative, I'd probably go with 9mm.

    I have the P3at, and it goes pretty much everywhere I go. I've been planning on buying a PF-9 as a pocket 9mm, but somehow I ended up buying a Rock Island 5" 1911. Not sure what happened there.

    Yeah, I do like the J frames. I just picked up a S&W 640 for my wife. I might still consider one of those or similar less expensive version if I don't go with one of these pocket semi-autos.

    My PF9 fills the niche between my P32 and Glock 19. It's easy to carry and shoots a more powerful round than the .32 ACP. Now I just need to find a decent leather paddle holster

    I have my heart set on getting the Kahr PM9, but at around $800.00, (depending on the finish), the PF9 may be a more reasonable alternative right now.

    I can find the Kahr PM9, but not the Keltec PF9 in gun stores near me. Go figure.
    God bless our troops!

    I use the PF9 as my primary a fair amount of time. It is the thinnest, lightest most concealable 9mm in capacity and price range. I do not like to shoot more than 2-3 mags at the range. It is a gun that will wear you out at the range. But I agree with the comment on the .380 vs 9mm. Both calibers are the same size. With the new ammo like Hornady's Critical Defense - I think the .380 will perform as well as any 9mm. Corbon Pow'r Ball is another good one. I am sure there are many more. So if using for only a BUG - I might be inclined to go with a LCP.

    Thumbs up

    I own a PF9 which has performed flawlessly but it's not quite my BUG. Still waiting to find an LCP/P3AT at a reasonable price.

    I considered the PF9, but chose the P11 instead for its greater capacity and easier controlability. It works really well IWB in a Don Hume or Tuck-It. I also have a P3AT for summer pocket carry.
