Kel-Tec PF9: $300 Carry Pistol Innovation

2 min read

The most important thing you can do as someone who commits to an EDC system is to have a gun on you. Sometimes, we can not dress around the gun, and this is where we are put in a tough spot. Generally, downsizing our pistols does a few things to us. It typically can lessen our effectiveness in marksmanship, limits our round count, and increases our recoil and shooting discomfort. These characteristics are normal, but it is a sacrifice that many are willing to make. For this reason, Kel-Tec came out with the PF9 to answer the need for a pistol that is as slim and light as possible without costing an arm and a leg. Watch video below:

I will not pretend that shooting the Kel-Tec PF9 is a dream or that it is soothing. It is a pain in the palm after about 100 rounds, and is completely unacceptable in the felt recoil department according to my wife after just one round of shooting. Basically, this pistol is not for the faint of heart or the inexperienced. Just to save you time, this pistol is definitely better suited for one of two people. Either you need to have lots of time behind firearms in general to understand what is needed to perfect this platform in very little time, or you will need to be a committed individual that will spend the time to get used to the firearm and learn how to use it to great effect. I would say that this pistol is not hard to learn or get good with. You merely have to understand what you are dealing with and adjust accordingly.
