Pictured below is my Kel Tec PF-9...one of three that I own ( my wife and daughter carry the other two as of Christmas 2011 ).

I have added a LaserLyte to the rail...as well as a Kel Tec pocket clip that holds it pefectly in my boot top.




The PF-9 is a 9x19mm caliber, recoil operated, locked breech, double action only semi automatic pistol. It's manufactured in Cocoa, Florida by Kel-Tec CNC Industries. Featuring extensive use of CNC (Computer Numerical Control) manufacturing techniques, its 6 main components consist of the barrel, slide, frame, grip, trigger group, and magazine. The barrel is manufactured of AISA 4140 steel hardened to 48 RHC, and the slide is constructed of the same steel. The frame, which houses the trigger group, consists of a solid machined 7075-T56 aluminum billet. A transfer bar system connects the hammer and trigger. A hammer block safety is incorporated which helps prevent accidental discharge if the pistol is dropped. The long double-action-only trigger pull provides an additional safety feature. The pistol includes a slide hold-open feature which locks the slide in its rearmost position after the last round is fired. The grip is made of duPont ST-8018 polymer and holds the steel, 7-round, single-column magazine. The sights consist of a fixed front blade and a windage-adjustable notched rear sight. Three white dots highlight the sights for optimum visibility in low-light conditions.

I've shot all of these pistols extensively before gifting them to my girls. Then they ran a few hundred rounds down range. Hopefully, they will never need them...

Pictured below is my KEL TEC P-32...a sub-compact semi-automatic pistol chambered in .32 ACP. Magazine capacity is 7 in a standard, single-stack magazine, plus one in the chamber.



The P-32 operates on Browning's short recoil principle. The barrel travels a short distance rearward while locked to the slide and the rear is then tilted down and unlocked from the slide through the action of a cam slot. The slide then continues rearward under inertia, extracting the spent case from the chamber and ejecting it. After the slide reaches the limit of its travel, the compressed recoil spring moves it forward again, stripping a new round from the magazine into the chamber. The cam slot and take-down pin move the chamber upward and the locking lugs on the barrel reengage those in the slide.

Almost bought a used P-11...nice carry piece with a larger capacity.

Did they finally phase that model out...?

I don't know. If I went by what I see in stores, the only gun Keltec actually produces is the P3AT, I've never seen any other Keltec in a store.

But I do have a P3AT.

Holy schnikes! I just clued in on why the .380-chambered P-3AT is called what it is. The "AT" reads "Eighty". KelTec is sooooooo clever. ;)

Light buuuuuuuuuuulb.

Still don't know why the didn't call the P-11's big brother .40 caliber gun the P4T.

Did you do the fluff & buff when you got the P-11...or was it GTG outta the box !?

Mine was bought used for $200, it worked fine, but the sights were atrocious, as in all bullets hit 12 inches below POA at 7 yards. I ordered the sight kit from Keltec and that fixed things.:)

Ajole got a question have you shot the Ruger LC9? Wondering if the LC9 is harder to hold than the P-11?

I ask because I want a P-11 I think but hope the grip is bigger than the LC9

Never held an LC9. The P11 is a double stack, so its a bit wider than, say, the PF9 by Keltec. A bit short, the pinky tends to not fit, unless you get the mag base plate with the pinky rest. But 1" wide, so there is something to grip.

Thanks for the info. I found the LC9 grip to narrow but sounds like the P11 might work for me.
