This is an unbeatable concealed carry option. I first started with the P3AT. Too small. So small it could be easily lost because there was NO feedback that it was still in my pocket or belt. I next Tried the PF9. Cannot find anything not to like about it, if you dont ask it to do something its not designed to do. I fire 20 rounds through it every trip to the range. Only 25'. I can group to 2.5-3" Its combat accuracy, this is no target gun. I love the long heavy trigger pull. The last thing I want, is to shoot someone unintentionally which will never happen with this setup. Always goes bang. With the optional clip, I know its in the small of my back. I can feel it back there, but often forget to remove it while driving as its not all that uncomfortable, even on a long trip. Not easy to field strip, not comfortable to shoot box after box of ammo through, wont group for shit at 25 yards, only 7 rounds, no country wide law enforcement endorsement. It is the gun you are likely to have with you which is better than all the bigger caliber, more comfortable, more accurate guns that were left behind because they were too big to be be remembered to be taken with you. I like it, you may or may not, but try it yourself before condemning it.

Quickly turns into $160 during checkout. “Gun Fee” seems stupid.

Super light carry gun; I carried mine for several years before switching to an XDS and a Glock 43. I dont know if the barrel now has rifling in it, but when I had mine the bullets would tumble through the target as opposed to spinning. As others have said, it is susceptible to limp wrising and it does have a very long, heavy trigger pull. I never had a problem with reliability. It does start to beat up your palm, after a few rounds, as it is a bit snappy. For $141, it is a good deal.

I have put around 600 rounds of 115 grain FMJ through my PF-9. It has worked flawlessly. Snappy, but not bad. It is also, suprisingly, more than accurate enough for self defence.

Spend another$20/$30 and get a Taurus PT 111 g2. Just about the same size, a tad thicker but holds 13 rounds, has the rail as well but is much more reliable. I own a few of them and several over the years and all have been ammo eating machines. All types, cases and grains they shoot them all without issues. The Taurus still has a somewhat long trigger pull but in my opinion is better than these. But to each their own and opinions are like assholes, everyone has one!

And not only does the Taurus hold 12+1 rounds, it comes standard with a second magazine. I own the PT111 Millennium and love it, but when I held the Kel-Tec the grip was dramatically thinner and smoother so would be very comfortable to carry. But I have big hands and like the grip on the Taurus with it's aggressive stippling. And I like carrying 25 rounds with the gun and just one additional magazine.

At this price this is a great deal. If you get a good one. People have had reliability issues. This was my first handgun back in 2013 and mine has been very reliable although It is very susceptible to limp wristing I have found. As long as you know this no problems at all. Everything I have put through it FMJs, Speer gold dot have been great. Now I keep Fed HST 150gr micros in it and the have been 100% go. The heavy long trigger is rough but it allows me to carry it with just the factory belt clip and no trigger protection which makes this the slimmest, lightest least bulky 9mm option available anywhere. Took me a while to get used to my Shield in a kydex cuz I was so spoiled by this. It stays in my carry rotation for this reason. I can't quit you PF9.

Oops, I did it again! I carried a PF9 for 7 years until it was stolen from my car (outside a no carry venue, errg!) that didnt have a locking glovebox, etc. At $169.99 ( I still had a $10 coupon from my SG membership to knock out the gun fee), I could not resist a trip down memory lane. On my first one, after I learned to shoot an extremely lightweight 9mm/broke it in with 200 rds of WWB, it was very reliable with good form, and after I became accustomed to what is required with a super lightweight nine, it was reliable enough for me one handed that I staked my life on it for over 7 years. I really didnt need another, as I have grown pretty fond of DB9 that is the only 9 that fits in the back pocket of my Levis instead of a wallet and is light enough to be feasible in that carry scenario. But hey, I can always get at least $200 back out of this gun if my trip down memory lane ends with sticking with my DB! I also have a LC9s decked out with laser/tritium sights and a SCCY CPX2, and the key to reliability with all of these 9mm pistols under 20 ounces, dont overstress them with more than 124gr ammo, plus all guns should eat 200 rds of FMJs before moving onto JHPs.

PS Razed by Wolves - you are right, availability has seem to come and go very quickly ever since the PF9 got so much attention in the well publicized Zimmerman trial. At this price, they should fly off the shelves again.

I almost bought a green/black one today at LGS. Decided I wanted to rent one first. If this was the green and black I probably couldn't refuse

My PF9 has yet to have a FTF, FTE, or any other malfunction. Granted I waited for the hard chrome version but I have shot a variety of FMJ, Remington JHP, and even frangible ammo through it with no problems. Comparing the PF9 to the Shield 9mm is not really fair. The Shield is in a class of it's own. My wife and I both use the Shield as our CCW but the PF9 is ideal for a back up or gun to keep concealed in your car. I do agree that it is harder on the hand but, again, it is not designed to go to the range and fire two or three hundred rounds through. If you are on a budget you could do much worse.

I took my friend's PF9 and my new Shield 9 to the range last week. Shot about a hundred rounds between the two of them. There simply is no comparison. The Shield 9 is a much better gun. The PF9 is a violent little bastard and definitely not a range gun. Go on Youtube and seach "keltec pf9 sucks" and watch the videos by "CandRreviews"

YMMV.... Bought one of these last year. First trigger pull FTE... Then FTE over and over again. Wrote Kel Tec, they sent me a new extractor, spring, screw... Installed and it seemed to work great..... Then the barrel lug snapped right off!! Less than 400 rds. Sent the damn thing in to be fixed and sold it. Good luck

One caveat about the PF9. It is a conceal carry/self defense firearm - NOT a range toy. It is uncomfortable to shoot due to the recoil and I hated the trigger on mine. However during the short amount of time I had mine (brown/black version from centerfiresystems) it had been 99% reliable. I say 99% as I had one jam in 100 rounds fired. I love taking my ccw very regularly to the range and practice with it and the PF9 not being a comfy range gun, stopped me from doing this. I only had it for a few weeks but if I needed a reliable ccw weapon, on the cheap and something that I do not care about regular practicing with; I'd buy another one in a heartbeat...

Well you had much better luck out of your PF-9 than I did. After numerous FTF's during over 200 rounds of trying to break it in I finally traded it in on a Glock 23 and forgot about it.

When the price is this low, they must be churning them out a dozen a minute I guess. Of course quality may be a hit and miss. It could be ammo related too, but of course other than price, the pf-9 loses against pretty much against anything that Glock can throw at it. Don't feel bad though - that one jam I had, took me a good 2-3 minutes to clear :)

I'd agree, with one caveat: The trigger travel is just about a 1/8 inch too long. It needs to break earlier. Not much, just a tad. The pull is fine, very very light for a DAO. Recoil is a tad harsh, but the pistol is so light it has to be expected.

It's not a "pretty" gun but I've seen worse. Lots of recoil and Loooooong trigger pull. But for the price I paid, I'm happy.

Really the only thing I don't like is having to worry about dry firing with this pistol. The manual says that could damage the pistol. It's quite easy to dry fire accidentally if I don't keep count of the rounds I'm firing down range. But I suppose keeping track of the rounds is good practice anyhow.

Being so light, I might try to tame the recoil a bit (like I did with my LCP) with some stronger recoil springs from Wolff (their P-11 springs might fit this). Also, stronger recoil springs tend to make shell casings eject closer, and perhaps put less stress on the ejector/extractor (especially with hot ammo, which this pistol is somewhat rated for [+P in moderation]). The drawback however, it will be harder to rack the slide manually, but it's not much harder than my LCP now.

Totally agree, at this price, I am very happy.

Isnt the trigger supposed to be a little shorter now? The original I used to carry was long but easily stageable. Better than an original LC9, before they went striker fired in the LC9s/EC9 (that are also significantly heavier than the PF9).

Re: Dry firing, thats what snap caps are for, should definitely limit dry fires as it is not a striker fired gun, but its not that fragile that you should expect a failure from an occasional dry fire. For trigger practice with a laser, I keep a couple of spent casings in my range bag.

Re: Recoil, I wouldnt change springs, I am assuming this isnt going to be your only pistol, so its not going to be an all day range toy with high round count. Once you tough it out thru the break in, really no reason to fire more than a couple of mags per range session to ensure functionality and confidence. Its going to be used in SHTF situations, a couple of rounds or one mag at a time for the most part, where recoil isnt really a huge concern, reliability is.

There are plenty of good 115gr and 124gr JHPs that do the job fine without going to +p. I respect the physics of only 12.7oz of mass versus a 9mm's recoil, the energy/stress is still contained within the system, consider frame and slide flex, especially if they flex at different rates than designed at contact points, as well as the stress on other metal parts like ejectors. There is no need to take the chance of a catastrophic failure that screws up a perfectly good lifetime warranty. BTW, the only other under 13oz 9mm, the Diamondback DB9, says no +P and nothing more than 124gr right in their manual. If your PF9 is reliable right out of the box, I'd suggest a Hogue rubber grip or texture grips to tame recoil before tinkering with internals and stick to standard 115 or 124gr loads. Just my two cents.... and thats about what its worth! :) Wish you the best with yours

My trigger pull is so long, I have to pull it all the way back to the rear of the trigger guard. It is smooth and stageable though, just like you say. I don't have a LC9 yet but I do have the LCP and its trigger pull is surprisingly much shorter.

I bought some snap caps for my father about 10 years ago, but they're 45 ACP. I forgot that this pistol has a last round hold-open, so perhaps losing count of rounds during speed firing at the range isn't an issue after all, since the trigger and hammer doesn't engage when the slide is open.

As far as the recoil springs, much of the inexpensive ammo I purchased is close to +P specs without being rated as such... My logic was that stronger recoil springs would improve my follow up shot accuracy and reduce wear and tear on my pistol.

Thanks for the tips, and I hope you enjoy your new pistol as well.
