I upgraded from a p32 to the pf9. The recoil is harsh but it does make me feel safer knowing the power is so much greater. I do need to practice with it some more.

Someone here asked about reliability of the PF 9 here. I have around 500 rounds through mine without 1 single hiccup. I did not even need to do a fluff and buff. It's been great right out of th box. Keltec does state that you should not put thousands upon thousands of rounds through it. It is designed to be carried alot and shot enough to stay proficient with it. Keltec also recommends that you do not feed it a regular diet of +P ammo. I hbe not put any +P ammo though this small gun and don't plan on it. I've heard from others it can be picky about what type of ammo you feed it. I've feed mine blazer brass, Winchester white box, American Eagle, and a few more range ammo with no problems.

I carry it with federal hydra-shook or Speer Gold Dot. They feed flawlessly. If anyone wants to see a really good review on the PF 9 check out nutnfancy's handgun review on YouTube.

Congratulations Soolie on your purchase on the PF 9. $260 is a good price for this gun. I've purchased many guns from Buds. They are great to work with. If anyone is thinking about the PF 9 I'd suggest grabbing one from Budsgunshop before they are all gone

The one I bought was used. They were asking $250 for it so I would say you got a good deal.

I also got my PF-9 from Bud's ($259 + tax), but I picked it up at the store. I live about an hour and a half from there. It was my first purchase from Bud's, and I was pleased. They have a great selection, good prices, and good service.

Took the PF-9 back to the range today. I have to say, after putting another hundred or so rounds through it, I'm not crazy about it. It may just be me, but I find it very uncomfortable to shoot, and I'm all over the place with it. Plus, I had 3 FTE's, but I'll reserve judgment regarding the reliability until I've put a couple hundred more through it. By comparison, I also spent some time today shooting the Springfield XD subcompact. What a difference! Sure, we're talking 2 different guns here - the XD is a lot more substantial (not to mention a lot more expensive), but it was like night and day.

I think I'm still looking for my perfect carry gun. I don't think the PF-9 is the right one for me.

I knew I should have gotten that LCP

Take a real sharp knife and slowly and carefully shave the molding seam on the back of the grips. Thi allows you to hold the PF-9 more natural and avoid hand pain. If you are very careful it also helps the apperance.

I may try a slip-on grip cover.

I did that along with a stick on grip pad and it did help.

My Kahr CW-9 is almost identical in size. The Hogue Handall Jr. makes shooting very comfortable. It not only cushions the recoil, it has molded finger grooves to make it more controllable. It costs $10 at most gun stores.
