Kel-Tec PF-9 PF-9 7+1 9mm 3.1"
by Matthew H Date Added: Sunday 04 March, 2012
I picked this up from my FFL on 3/3/12 and took it straight to my local range. Now, I've read all the reviews on this site as well as others, and it was hard to gauge what people thought of this gun. You either love it or hate it; it jams constantly or has no issues; it's a great concealed carry, or you wouldn't chance your life on it. That's the gist of the reviews I've seen. After much reservation and even thinking I'd refuse the transfer and send back to Bud's, I opted to keep it. After all, at the end of the day it was only $232.

After putting 100 rds (WWB and UMC) through it right out of the box, I thought I made the one of the biggest mistakes of all time. Jam-city with FTE happening every few shots, and it never locking back on completion of a magazine. I took it home and cried myself to sleep. Well, not really, but I did do more reading and head-scratching. I wasn't about to do the "fluff and buff" that the Kel-Tec forum recommends, so I opted to give it a good cleaning instead. In addition, I used a high-quality grease on the rails. Now, I probably should have done this BEFORE taking it to the range, but I've never had to with any Glock or Springfield I own, so I took my chances. Today (3/04/12), I took it back to the range, and what a difference! Not one single failure using PMC ammo. Not once did the slide fail to lock back. Nothing. It's like someone swapped out my gun while I was asleep. I'm going to chalk up the issues I had to the gun not being properly cleaned, and perhaps a bit of limp-wristing when shooting (this gun demands proper technique).

So, overall I'm pretty happy for the price. One thing that I can say with 100% certainty, as others have on here, is that this is NOT a range gun. You will go home a bruised and broken man (or woman) after firing off a hundred rounds or so. I have little nicks on my strong hand between the thumb/index finger and my trigger finger feels like hot garbage. The mousgunner and hickok45 reviews experienced similar pains. That said, I give it 4 out of 5 and have complete confidence in this weapon for EDC.
