Default First range day with new pistol!

So I got to shoot my new Kel-Tec PF9 today and I've got to say, it was really fun. I was a little scared because from what I read, it can be 'snappy' or have a hard kick because it's so light. I found this to be an exaggeration, it did have a mild snap for recoil though. Despite this, it was easy to regain a sight picture on the target quickly. I believe that the extra bit of grip from the magazine lip made a difference here too. The gun fit my hands rather perfectly.

I spent the first 3 clips (21 rounds) getting acquainted with the gun and sighting it in at 30ft.


Then I moved to my next target, shooting 5 rounds per clip. I've gotta say I was impressed by the gun's accuracy, as well as my own.


I also had a chance to fire a few rounds from my .32 top break, and a "Trooper mk V" .357 here at 30ft aiming at one half of a target.


We also plinked around with a couple .22's and my brother's 9mm. We only had about an hour or so to shoot so I wasn't fully satisfied when we left. I'll probably have another report next weekend.

Good shooting. I like my PF9 and it has been very relaible. I think it is a much better pocket gun than any 380 gun can be.

Great choice!

[QUOTE=stalkingbear;505491]Well done! How's the trigger on it?[/QUO

It took a little getting used to but I like it. It's a heavy pull (5-6lbs according to their website) but the trigger itself is polymer, so it's light. Plus, the trigger must travel a considerable distance before it fires. I learned from a youtube review that it is a good idea to find the point just before it fires and pull the trigger to it while lining up the shot, then take it. I found that my accuracy improved considerably once that "sweet spot" was was located. I like it, because you gotta be damn sure you want to fire when you pull the trigger, harder for accidents to occur.
