    Keltec P11 vs PF9

    I carry a P11 and heard rumor of a PF9 for sale...it got me thinking. I am happy with the P11, but it curious if anyone with more hands on with these weapons could give me some pros and cons. Thanks guys!

    Also...what does this mean? "Firing mechanism is double action only with an automatic hammer block safety" Obviously I know they don't have a traditional safety, but how does the double action work?

    I tried both and bought the P11 because it filled my hand better, seemed as though it would be easier to shoot well and has a 10-round mag. That said, the PF9 has a better trigger pull and is slightly lighter and easier to conceal. I've been happy with the 11 but could have lived with the 9. I think you'd be happy with either; it depends on how each feels to you.

    I have both and the trigger pull of the PF9 is eaiser than the P11. The size of the two are the same except for the thickness, the PF9 is slimmer because of its single stack mag.

    I have both and both are DAO guns with hammer block safety (means it won't fire if dropped - bar of steel blocks the hammer getting to the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled).

    The P11 is a great carry gun for 12+1 rounds, harder trigger and can take S&W 59xx and 69xx series mags.
    The PF9 is a thinner and better trigger but 7+1 rounds and only takes their propriety mags. Can work in pocket, OWB or IWB very well.

    I use and carry both so choose the one that fits your hands better.

    Im all about the P11. My wife is even more into the P11. I bought her a revolver and she said thanks but no thanks. She wanted to just keep her P11 and told me to go buy her some perfume.

    If you can carry the P11 and are comfortable with it, I'd say stick with it. I got a PF9 mostly because it was just thinner, lighter, and easier to carry (for me) in many situations.

    If I could have pulled off the P11 more comfortably, I'd have preferred the 12+1 and feel of the thicker grips.

    Everyone already summed it up pretty good. Being a smaller guy, I like the PF-9. It's just easier to conceal. I also snagged it for $227 last month.

    The p-11 is 10+1 not 12+1. I think its a difficult choice between the 2. I think the pf9 is nicer looking and maybe a little cleaner, but the p-11 has more rnds and is just as concealable. I think id take the latter.

    If the P11 weren't so much thicker I would have bought it instead of my PF9. As it is I'm VERY happy with my little skinny pocket pistol.
    Of course this was to be a pocket pistol and I haven't even considered any other way to carry this little beauty.

    Look again because Kel-tec has offered 12+1 flush fit mags for the last two years and they work.

    When I bought my '9' the shop had it and the '11'. I found the '9' felt a little better in my hands and would be slightly easier to conceal. I am pleased with it.

    I just picked up a P11, and I think it's a great pistol. The trigger is a bit long, but it does the job..
