    I'm not the best person to help out here but have played with both on occasion. My brother-in-law has these two Kel-Tec models. While both shoot well I was more intrigued with the single stack PF9. It's grip felt better to me and despite its light weight it was very controllable. He frequently carries it in his boot. It would be easy to conceal. I'm an old fogy and not too keen on plastic pistols. For those who are fine with such construction the PF9 offers really good value for the money.

    Welcome from Utah, and good luck. Sorry, I have no experience with either.

    I have a KelTec PF-9 and it is great for concealed carry. It can be concealed iwb, owb, ankle whatever. It also shoots very nice for such a compact gun. I have put about 250 rounds through mine without a single issue. I would definately recommend it.

    Assuming you want it for CCW duty, I would choose the PF9. However, the P11 isnt a bad choice, and you can use S&W high cap mags in it.

    I like the pf-9 for overall concealment and weight but Sixto makes a good point with the high cap mags.

    Can't attest to this personally as I've never fired a P-11 but I do have a PF-9 and I've been told that the trigger on the PF-9 is a vast improvement over the trigger on the P-11. For what it's worth.
