    Well, back to the range today with my little keltec. I now have put upwards of 500 rounds through it of different stuff. From the steel cased tul to remington, to white box, etc. It has not missed a beat.

    I have to admit that it took me a while to figure out how to shoot it accurately. Now I can consistently hit the bull at 15 to 20 feet. Pie pans be warned!!!

    I really like this little guy even though it barks and bites.

    I don't think I could shoot mine 500 times. I think I got about 100 in it. Never missed a beat but not fun to shoot.

    My 45 now that's FUN!

    I've lost count but must be past 500 by now with no problems. Didn't really fit in my front pants pocket so now that the weather has cooled it rides in my jacket breast pocket.

    I sold my PF9 to buy a ruger LCP, big mistake, i have no faith in 380 cal, so ill sell the LCP, with crimson trace and buy the PF9 back....npot that the lcp is not a good gun, it is, just not for me...

    Do what I did, own both! And 6 rounds of .380 in your pocket sure beats throughing rocks.

    I would rather have pf9 than lcp any day even if it hurts more to shoot

    I've never fired a pf9 but I can't imagine mit being more uncomfortable to shoot than the lcp. Everything about the operation of the LCP is awkward and/or uncomfortable (racking slide, shooting, mag release/swap). I sure like how easy it is to carry but I hope I never have to use it if that's what I have on me!

    I am on my second PF9. The first was an early production and could never get it to work correctly. It would not make it through a full mag without a malfunction, either failure to feed or failure to eject correctly. I sold it, fully disclosing its problems to the buyer.

    I picked up a used, later serial number and it's been 100% with everything I've put through it, including my own personal defense loads. It's been my everyday carry for over a year now.

    I hear you. Mine run smoothly too. Two of them are beyond 1000 rounds.

    One in each color. One for the pocket, one for the range, one for safe and one for the heck of it.

    They are light and flat and very concealable.

    I've got about 1000 rds through my PF-9. I had some mag retention problems early on because of the plastic mag catch/release. KT sent a metal one and it's been great. My recent complaint involves the sights. It was a little dark at my indoor range and I had trouble seeing the sights. Does anyone know is there are after-market night sights for the PF-9?

    Love my PF9, but I don't enjoy shooting it. My LCP recoils like a *****cat in comparison. Both pistols are in heavy rotation in my carry routine.
