I have never been able to hit the broadside of a barn with my Kel Tec P-11. I have had it for years and always considered it to be a belly buster, nothing more. I put a white trigger stop on it and gave it a short try out.

The first six shots were like normal, all over the place. Once I got the hang of using the trigger stop I put the last four shots in the same hole. I am going to give it a few days of dry firing before I waste any more ammo. I am sure a little luck was involved with putting four shots in the same hole but I am certain the P-11 has become a 15 yard shooter.

I made the trigger stop out of a rubber tab you put on the bottom of a table leg. It will be more durable than a pencil eraser. I simply drove a 380 brass through the plastic to get it the size I wanted. The I used a triangle shape file to fit the plastic to the gun. I attached the trigger stop to the gun with super glue.

The stop makes the kel tec shoot like it has a staged trigger. You just squeeze until you feel the trigger touching the stop. Then you get a good aim and squeeze. The trigger barely moves before the gun goes off. It is impossible for me to hold the gun steady with a mile long trigger travel. I can shoot the kel tec very well with the stop.

I'd be interested in shooting something like this. My largest pet peeve with DAO/Striker fire DA guns is the extreme amount of trigger distance. If this solved that at all it would greatly open up my options for backup carry pieces.
I used a pencil eraser for a template. I dry fired the gun with a pencil eraser until I achieved the desired effect. Then I carried the pencil eraser until I spotted something I could work with. The original White trigger stop is made from a pencil eraser. The pencil eraser is so soft I don't see how it would last more than a couple hundred rounds. I felt better with the chair leg pad. They last for years under much more extreme conditions. The drawback to the harder material is your work has to be more accurate. Once the stop is glued on the gun it is difficult to file/sand without damaging the gun. I put several layers of masking tape on contact areas to protect the gun while I was filing the stop.
