Kel-Tec P-11 parkerized 9mm
[P11PK]
$265.00
by Ron W Date Added: Monday 20 December, 2010
Even after paying for expedited shipping, It still took 2 full weeks for my P11 to arrive. Taking a long time to ship is pretty much standard with Bud's, as I have experienced this before. I guess this is just the trade off for getting a reasonably priced product.

About the gun: I too received the black instead of the green gun. I was actually looking forward to the green, but I am fine with the black too. The item arrived in good order and in brand-new condition. First thing I did was to clean it, as it still had the packing lubrication in it. Once I had the bore and components nice and clean, and properly lubricated, I headed out to the range. Oh, and as another person posted, take care when reassembling it. The advice from that other post is solid and right on the money. Shooting the gun was a different experience. This pistol has an enormously long and heavy trigger pull. I would say much more than your average double action revolver. After only a few rounds I had to put it down. My shooting hand was already fatigued. By comparison, I can shoot all day with my 1911, and never get tired. But with only one box of ammo through the P11, I had to call it quits. The next day I took it out, and managed to get another 150 rounds through it before giving up. Had a few double stacks, and a couple of failures to eject. Cleaned it up, and continued. After my hand started shaking just to pull the trigger, I gave up again. When I took it as a secondary gun to my firearms training class, my instructor told me "You should get rid of the P.O.S.!"

I will give the little gun the benefit of the doubt, and work it out with dummy rounds, and see if that loosens it up a bit. I understand that the heavy pull is really the only safety this gun has, but this is a bit ridiculous. I would NOT recommend this little gun to a person with weak or small hands, even though this is a relatively small gun.

If I can't find a way to loosen it up a little, then I just may take my firearms instructor's advice.........
