I was having off center primer strikes and quite often it was causing me light strikes. Called Kel-tec today while i was on my lunch break and they are going to replace my slide free of charge. however I decided I would like their olive drab green slide, so I'll have to pay the difference of 45.00 which don't bother me one bit... next up olive drab grip and a handall hogue jr :). I wasn't told if I would get a free magazine to take care of shipping, but from what I hear they do that for everyone... so lets find out how they treat me.

same here Reaper, but once they have it fixed they run fine it seems. All of the first run guns seem to have issues of one sort or another. Two different people at the range have totally new firearms after being back 3 or more times. But, I have to admit after shooting those pistols I was surprised.

For a little pistol in 9 mm it actually groups really well while shooting off hand at 21 feet. At 10 feet from the hip keeping every round in the mag in a 5 inch group is easy also.

I did just shoot a CZ Protek 17 shot 9 mm last night. Charlie picked one up and wanted me to check it out. Now for a very compact 9mm it is phenomenal but who wants to pay $1200.00 unless you own an R&D Machine Shop like Charlie does?

I think the PF9 is the best bang for the buck going in the pocket rocket arena. At least out of all of them I have shot so far.

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

I agree. before the kel tec I was gonna buy a Kahr pm9 and glad I didnt because of the huge price difference I was able to save up and buy an HK USP 40 quicker. more guns to come yet as well. stopped by the gun shop today and picked up a hogue handall jr... feels alot better in the hand, yet to test it out with live rounds. feels a little bulkier and my hand actually goes around it instead of leaving spaces here n there because of the slim grip. I work with a guy who has almost every pistol/rifle available from kel tec. he has had no problems with them as customer service is superb. I had him fluff n buff the chamber of my PF-9 and it ejects alot better now with federal champions. remington umc's on the other hand... forget about it. I get paid tomorrow so I'll be sending out the slide then if I get out of work at a descent time. might purchase an olive drab grip as well along with a belt clip. to be honest for 340 bucks... this little 9mm has suprised me. very pleased with it for the amount it cost. after you get to know it, its a pretty reliable pistol. I've had my blonde moments with it and have gotten irritated by it... but sometimes my memory slips a little bit as theres always tons of shit goin through my brain. haha hell last weekend i took my pf9 out and it was shooting to the left way to far... while i was 12 feet away it was at the least 2 feet off to the left... 75 rounds and a day later i realized the weekend prior I moved my rear sight to the left at the end of a box because it was shooting left... stupid me ha... I was so embarassed and the only one there was me. facepalmed myself after sayin wtf on ktog.org. :) guess we all cross them moments one time or another. the thing that really irritates me is I've shot lots of guns/pistols in the army... and that shit happened. someone needs to slap me. haha

I watched a guy who has been shooting for years try and break down his Pistol last night with the mag in it. He couldn't get it and handed it to Donny who was standing next to him, Donny dropped the mag and handed it back to him...

Needless to say, Steve did this in front of 32 Shooters right before we all loaded up for IPSC. We all go to dinner after the shoot every time, Steve skipped it. lol

That's ok, everyone will remember next week. HA!

I have the best damn story you will ever here, but before that, thanks for advice Guys, now the story,-- I am 29 years old and get with 3 brothers and 3 uncles and 22 gun club guys to go one week deer season. Everybody knows everybody from school, family etc. We start some drives and put some guys on left and some in stands and so on. Had to have ten pickups all together, and everybody in Camo w/ some red and colder than a w--ses T-t. Lot of hooded carhart clothes for Dec in pine barrens in Jersey. One guy Art, who runs a big ass farm and his nephew " Bubba " Real name even up North. They ride together, in Bubba's pickup custom, No back seats then guys. So some guys freezing in back pu bed. First drive was those guys pushing west another group pushing easterly & north. For the standers mostly right out of meadows where an island was and always had some bucks that loved the cedar trees for warmth and bed down in daytime. Drive was great, got 3 deer on first and all nice racks up to an 8 pointer. We all meet for next drive and who sits and who crawls etc. Bubba gets in truck and Art gets in passenger side and it was a short ride so my brothers and I jumped in back. My brother says to all of us --Does anybody else smell shit? We were going about twenty down a dirt road, All of us in back were about to say yes, when Art bails out of truck on passenger side of course, at twenty miles an hour. Bubba stops truck fast and we all pile up on each other, then we jump out and my brother says to Bubba why did Art bail out like that and Bubba says , I don't know ? He said Oh shit and jumped out! Art is up to us now and says Bubba don't you smell shit?, Bubba says no and then says a little now. Seems Bubba at last drive had to take a shit, and to do that, had to pull his carharts down and hooded sweatshirt, and squatted over a log, and shit in the hood of his seatshirt and never knew it. There it was a mean pile of the worst shit I ever saw filled up his hood on sweatshirt. It was so damn funny when Art bailed out of truck and ran up and said he shit in his own hood and I saw that and jumped out no matter where we were or how fast. So we all take about a 50' walk and Bubba in his undaunted wisdom took off layer after layer of clothes to throw sweatshirt away and you could see that his teeshirt was ripped in half. One of my brothers sons about 16 said why are you wearing a half of t-shirt ? We were laughing so hard by then, it took at least 20 minutes to tell the kid Bubba wiped his ass with his own t-shirt. I still am laughing as I write this. It was the funniest thing that I ever saw a bunch of grown men laugh over and poor Bubba, even though he was about 6'4", he had so many shit remarks and jokes he never lived it down. somebody even nailed a sweatshirt in the cabin with a caption of Bubba's biggest buck on his own load. Then a pause and the word shit was spelled out. It has been told to everybody in south and north jersey and now onhere. Sorry Bubba, what ever you are doing now. JLC

thats funny as hell

i have a fun one as far as deer hunting goes....Me and my Uncle hunt together a lot in Northern Wisconsin,he's only a year older than me.We were stalking out in the woods and it was cold as hell,we decided to warm up in the truck,have some coffee,plan our next move.on the way back to the truck,i moved a bit faster and cleared the 4 strand barbwire fence well before my Uncle and made it up to the truck,sitting in the drivers seat.My Uncle approached the barb wire strand fence and got caught up in it,dropping his rifle in the snow beore he recovered and clambered up the ditch,looking at the snow covered 30-06,shaking it and making his way up to the truck.well i watched him,i saw him peer into the barrel,looking for snow,when he blew into the barrel to clear the snow.....i honked the horn.....he died...i died laughing.

That is good and funny, and we all just do not thinksometimes, Life is a bitch then you die right. But we all still wonder how long would it take for Bubba to either smell it or touch it, or throw it over his head, later in the day ? That would have been the topper. JOHN

I got a little story about deer hunting shit. every year we have a family hunt way up north in the lower peninsula of michigan that lasts the full 2 weeks of rifle season. comin back to the camp sight at night i had to really drop a load, so as soon as we all got back to camp, i ran in the trailer slapped my happy ass on the toilet and let her blow. went to whipe my ass n stuck my damned finger tips into the pile of shit because the toilet is extremely small. i was grossed the hell out and laughin at the same time. never told anyone about that at deer camp. got back n told a few family members n they all had a good laugh at that. made my cousin's day, he was in prison at the time a couple years ago and he still laughs about it n points fingers whenever we're hangin out... ill take a dump outside from now on... either that or stand up n bend over to whipe haha

Just remember to squat over the log and make sure your aim is not in your own clothes. Bubba never lived it down HA HA I cannot even think of it without laughing, and how the other guy bailed out of truck,and then Bubba tearing his own clothes off on a 20 below day, to get rid of his own shit, and then the kid says why did he rip his undershirt? Frozen pine needles do not make good toilet paper!JLC
