Default Kel-TecPF9

Currently carry aRuger LCPas my everyday pocket carry and was looking to upgrade caliber. Was contemplating on getting a Kel-TecPF9 and was hoping to see if anyone knew if it was a good gun. From what I have researched it is, but wanted some real live feedback. Thanks!

It is not a well finshed pistol and has a heavy trigger and can be hard on the shooter. In shirt It is a basic MM CC pistol. If the shooter is up to it they can function just fine. I CC'd one for 2 years and fired close to 2000 rounds thru it. Never had an issue. But I did move on the kahrs as my carry line . Small heavy recoiling pistols in general can be problem prone do mainly to owners skill level and ammo . Buy a mid sized framed pistol and anyone can shoot them well.

Run a search on different forums and read people view of the handguns you have an interest in. Go to KTOG forum too and ask and read reviews there.

I carry the Kel tec 9. It has performed very good for me. Once you know the trigger, no problem. It is not a range gun, thats for sure. Strictly a self defense weapon. I installed the trigger kit and belt clip kit. I dont use a holster. I clip mine on, and inside my belt. It lays so flat, I can carry with a T Shirt on.

You'd be worlds better off going with a ruger lc9 unless you have the patience to send your gun back to the factory 2 or 3 times while they "fix" crap that never should have come from their factory broken.

That's how my EXP was with it. Now I'm looking to sell/trade mine. It's the hard chrome model and I put the Crimson Trace Light Guard on it. If I did it over again I would've gotten a Kahr PM9. Now that the XDs is out I'm not sure though.

Ask Mr George Zimmerman if his kel-tec got the job done

Great for self defense,but as a range gun,it really punishes the hand after awhile.

Its a damn fine weapon.

I have carried mine with confidence for over 2 years.

Its an inexpensive weapon that goes bang every time you squeeze the trigger. (after it gets you broke in)

But as stated above, it does take some getting used to.

Thugs everywhere agree... It's damn effective!

Just ask TM... Oh... Wait... You can't ask him.

KT's are not the "nicest" carry guns out there but... They are "thug" tested and victim approved.
