    I got my concealed carry permit in the mail yesterday (Thursday 24) and today (25) purchased a kel-tec pf-9 today. I am very happy with speed that I received it back and very happy with my weapon. I am planning after work tomorrow to go to the range and shoot some holes in paper.

    Great stuff, Uchahi! Get that trigger time racked up, but get your mind geared to never having to bust a cap on another human unless absolutely necessary. And it will be up to you to decide when it's absolutely necessary, and to handle everything that follows.

    Good job! Just remember the responsibility that goes along with carrying.

    Hey, I ran away from a guy that I had just beaten the crap out of recently because he said that he was going to get his gun out of his backpack. I could have let a regular ass-kicking turn into a justified shooting, but there was no need for it. I broke it off, drew, retreated to an ambush site, and listened to the crackhead yell and cry. I don't know if he really had a gun, but I was in such a position that it didn't even matter because I had the time and the opportunity to decide what happened next. At no point did he know that I was carrying, because things never got to the threshold where he would get to see a muzle flash, which should be the first sign to a BG that you're toting.

    I think is a great choice, there is no other gun easier to carry than this one, I had to smooth off with fine sandpaper three parts of the gun.
    First, the rear of the grip where the upper part of the hand falls.
    Second, see where the pinky rests? that part is sharp so it has to be sanded a little.
    Third, the trigger feels more like a revolver, is part of the safety this pistol is designed with, anyways, when you place your index on the trigger you'll feel the sharp end of it and also the almost 45 degree angle of the tip.
    If you don't understand what I am talking about, get your Pf9,finish a 50 round box of your favorite 9mm with discipline and then look at your hand and the red spots, where it hurts.

    I am not bashing it at all, I love mine and all my friend prefer it over the whole bunch of stuff we bring to the range, is big enough to hold and holds enough power to work. And i forgot, it is .88" thin:cool:

    And now's the time that "concealed carry" becomes "discrete carry" and you don't tell people you are carrying. I'm glad there is another one in our society. Each one of us makes makes our neighborhoods safer by the mere fact that BG's don't know who is carrying and who isn't.

    Unless you're a BG in California or D.C. or Chicago. Then you know you have free rein as the only one packing heat. Hopefully everybody soon will have the same right you are exercising right now!

    I just wanted to thank everyone for the kind words. And I feel much safer now than in the past. I carry everyday even if it is just in the car to work and back. I am not comfortable keeping a round in the chamber, but I think that it will all be fine. I am Very Strongly considering carrying my 1911, and am in search of a hostler that I like.

    Update thing:

    1.)The original mag will only hold 6 rounds. (I bought a send one before I even knew this.)

    2.)The gun is light, smooth, and I like it.

    3.)The trigger pull sucks more D*ck than Paris Hilton. I am getting use to it though.

    4.) I have put 200 rounds through the gun and it was good.

    5.) I purchased a Black hawk size 7.
