Kel tec pf9
 
Just curious what u all thought of them? I have one that is basically my truck gun and I actually like it a lot more then I thought I would. Put plenty of rounds through it and and never had a FTF or a FTE that I heard where sometimes problems. Anyway just wondering ya'lls thoughts on it.

If you got a reliable one that you like, then you should be set.

My opi ion is that KelTec is capable of producing some good designs. Their execution can be a little rough or crude in comparison to other manufacturers and their quality control doesn't seem so consistent. Some people get a gun that works great, some people get a gun that still needs work. Most that I've seen, need some smoothing out of sharp edges and sometimes working surfaces as well.

Nothing wrong with a good working one.

I like mine well enough. Even if it doesnt lend its self to comfy shooting.

It worked well enough for George Zimmerman....

Mine is great except with WWB. Then it has fte issues for the rest it is great.

like mine. I installed the belt clip kit and trigger kit. I clip in inside my belt and it lays so flat, I can conceal just wearing a T shirt and jeans. I consider mine as strictly CC. It is not a gun for at lot of shooting at the range. I have had no FTF issues.

Mine runs good on anything except NATO brass. Some winchester white box is made of NATO brass. Don't ask why it hates that stuff but I avoid it like the plague.

I don't think shooting it is too bad. The recoil is snappy but manageable. The standard grip is a little short for all of my fingers but they make a +1 extension that goes on the bottom of the magazine and solves that problem while turning the capacity of the gun into a 8+1.

The best thing I like about the gun is parts for it can be bought straight from the kel Tec website very inexpensively. They are super fast on shipping and if you have a problem just give them a call and they will fix it.

From a morbid curiosity standpoint, I can't but wonder if KelTec has seen any increases in sales of the PF9, or in general, due to it's new fame (or infamy if you prefer.)

I have some of that Winchester in the white box haven't shot any of it though with the pf9 mostly federal with no problems. Did it FTF or FTE? Like I said I haven't had one problem yet and the more I shoot it the more I like it. Thanks for all the replies one of the main reasons I joined this sight was the friendly and knowledgable posters.
