Looks like whoever did the Cerakote did an outstanding job!
Picked up a Kel-Tec a year ago for pocket carry, the P-32 and it was a total Gem: never had a failure, but it was .32acp. Finally decided it was time to try out the big brother and hope it was as reliable and accurate as the little .32
Enter the Kel-Tec PF-9, with a plus-1 baseplate giving it 9+1 capacity of 9mm firepower. Alas, it was very hard to find in Cerakote Tan, so I bought a black one, and had the frame Cerakoted in Coyote Tan ( plus $70 bucks). Why? I have no earthly idea. Call it a whim. My Glocks are both FDE, so I guess I just wanted to go with some color.
Anyway, the match is close to the factory Tan plus-one magazine adaptors, but not perfect. In regular daylight, it looks the same, but under a spotlight and a maginifed camera lens, it looks a shade off. But that's just cosmetics... how does it shoot? In fairness, I had the gunsmith give it a fluff and buff, feedramp and slight polish on the rails. Maybe it gives me a non-typical result, but I just wanted to have a good reliable back-up pistol, so what does it matter?
Anyway, with ammo being high AND hard to find, I only took 100 rounds to the range. Don't want to burn up what I can't replace easily, right?
Result: 100% function, no FTF, no FTE. 100 pulls of the trigger, 100 holes. In a row.
Not enough to put in my daily rotation, but very pleased with the result. Another 200 rounds with the same result and it will be in my rotation. Probably needs a good cleaning after 100 bangs anyway. So I will keep you posted, but for me and my $300, this little guy does the job just fine....maybe it just runs in the family!
Forgive me if I sound... confused here. But why would you rotate firearms on a daily basis? The point of carrying a firearm, to most, is for self protection and preservation if necessary. Would it not make more sense to carry the firearm that your most comfortable, accustomed to, and most importantly, most accurate with?Not enough to put in my daily rotation,
This post is why I have 3 different guns for carry. Different tools for different jobs. Nice lookin pf-9 Hope it works out and becomes reliable for carry duties. I have the p-32 and love the little gun. Ya its only a 32 but at times when you need deep concealment it shines. And at least you have a gun. First rule of gunfighting. Have one.Nothing confusing about it. My daily activity and attire dictates which weapon I decide to carry.
Cool, wearing a blazer, moderate to high potential threat level: full-size Glock.
Tucked in shirt, warm to hot weather, moderate to low potential threat area: IWB Kel-Tec or ankle S&W
Un-tucked shirt, causal attire with unknown threat: anything I feel like carrying.
Having one gun is fine. However, most skilled tradesmen have more than one hammer. And more than one screwdriver. They select the tool based on the job they expect to have to do.
I guess I consider myself a skilled tradesman.
