no such thing as bad publicity. Bunch of free advertising.

Its funny folks say their rig wont eat WWB. I have yet to find anything mine wont eat. Horndy critical defense, federal ball, 146 gr subsonics, WWB...all of it.

I had a few failures with WWB but mostly with once fired NATO brass. My problems were failure to extract. Once the gun fired the case would get stuck in the chamber midway through extraction because the extractor would jump over the rim of the case.

How do you know what NATO brass is?

Because the range I bought it from does their own reloading and they told me that lot was from military surplus brass. Upon very close inspection it appears that the extraction groove on NATO brass (or at least the stuff they had) is not as deep as the off the shelf stuff. Just to be sure of the problem, we tried the ammo in multiple guns alongside mine and mine was the only one with the problem, but no problem with off the shelf stuff. They also let me try some 9mm rounds they reloaded in non-NATO brass; worked great.

I had a PF9 for a while. Functioned fine. Not much fun to shoot and difficult to be accurate with beyond 10 yards.

It's what I'd call a 'value' carry gun. They're like $260-320, and it's a solid option in that price range. Also quite light and compact. You can do better (for a few hundred $ more), but you can also do a lot worse for the same price of the Kel-Tec.
