    Picked up my Kel-Tec PF9!!!!!!!

    Well, as promised, I picked up my new-to-me Kel-Tec PF9 yesterday. So good to have it home! It still needs a good cleaning, but I hope to be able to get out and shoot it soon. I am so happy with my purchase. Can't believe that I got it for $180. To me, that seems like a good price. In addition, I picked up a neat Uncle Mike's pocket holster as well.

    BTW, thanks to everyone for giving advice on the other thread pertaining to this pistol. I do have one question for y'all though. How tight is the frame to slide fit on your PF9s? Mine seems a little loose. Not terrible by any means, but I was just curious. I don't think it will affect performance. Plus I have handled much higher-priced poly pistols that rattle like a bucket of bolts!

    HE thinks, therefore I am! <><

    Congratulations on the KelTec PF9. A good buddy of mine had one, and loved it, and bragged about it and recommeded it for CC, until he bought a Ruger LC9.

    I fired his PF9 a few times, and personally I didn't care for it. Too much caliber in too light of a gun IMO. I have a Taurus 709 and the Ruger LC9 that I like. I also have a KelTec P11 that is a little larger and easier to handle.

    No matter, from what I have and what I hear, KelTec makes a good product.

    I like a little bit of lose fit on guns like that. They are made to be carried and carry guns get lint, dirt, grit, and all sorts of other crud in them. A little rattle in a gun like that will keep them from locking up on a bit here or there in them. Think about how old GI 1911's used to be. They ran like Timex's in the mud and worse and only become jam-o-matics when people make them tight for accuracy on paper. I think of the PF9 as a serious caliber last ditch defense gun that doesn't come close to breaking the bank. You can't buy better for that same price. They weren't made to be range guns and it bugs me when people demand more from a gun than it was made to give you. Dang it, now I need to get one too...
    It's a trick... Get an axe...

    You did great RF at $180. The slide on my previous one was a tad loose but did not effect performance at all. If you go to Ktog and or call Keltec you can check the manufacturer date to see when it was built. Mine is almost NIB so the slide is fairly tight still. If you go to the Keltec sight you can check out the parts. You can rebuild that gun from the ground up if you want. A new blued slide is $80 and new receiver with parts incl is about $34, new barrel $95, the rest of the parts are nominal. They recently came out with a +1 round grip extension which is tremendous. If you like your pinky on the grip it gets it back on there and one extra round to boot. The Hogue jr hand-all is not a bad idea if you have med lg-to lg hands. Some people melt the bottom (hook) of the trigger back for more room in the trigger guard area. If you ever shot a P11 you'll note a really stiff trigger the PF-9 albeit has the longer D/A pull has a 5# trigger which is real nice. There is a little play within the first few millimeters but "hay it ain't a Kimber".The reset on these is great as well. Once you're used to it the trigger stages nicely. The felt recoil is snappy but train with it and it will become second nature. At least it did for me however I tend to be a recoil junky so I like it. As they told me at Keltec when I called there to trying to figure out my first one, get out there and shoot it allot. I will probably try to put 50-100 per session. On my first one I put 200-300 per session and developed some tough hands LOL.

    I still have no decided if I want a .22 conversion or not. For just a small amount more get a whole new gun. But Twisted industries has a conversion for both the pf9 and the p11. I have not tried these so I cant testify to their reliability, just putting the info out.
