    Before buying I looked at both the P-11 and the PF-9... I chose the PF-9 as a concealed carry handgun... It is slimmer and more easily fits a pocket holster without "bulging", which is my preferred form of carry (Were I planning to carry it in a belt holster, I may well have chosen the P-11.) ... Fully loaded the PF-9 is considerably lighter than the P-11, and of those that I looked at the PF-9 had a "better feel" to it, more natural to grip and point, and a "less stiff", trigger pull... After buying the PF-9 I cleaned it, then took it out and ran something over 250 rounds thru handloads and commercial ammo, hard ball and hollow points... Not a single hick-up, baubble, or failure of any kind. It hit the ground running and never looked back...... The only "advantage" of the P-11 that I could see was that it does offer more rounds per magazine. But, I just bought a couple of extra magazines for my PF-9.

    I'm sure you would be happy with either...but for me and my preferred means of carry, I'm completely satisfied with my PF-9.

    I'm a PF-9 user for about 2 years. I have had no major issues. It is sized right, easy to control, most aftermarket parts are for the PF-9, The P-11 lacks the tactical rail. I would add Traction grips

    & the Insight X2 tac light, The new trigger upgrade & a laser sight.

    to be honest with you ive never liked kel tec, used to have a couple, i dont anymore for good reason, the damn things failed to eject several rounds (almost an entire mags worth in one session) and traded an old rifle a while back for some handguns, a kel tec p11 was in the mix, and i hated it for its ergonomics and constant weak firing pin engagements. but if you MUST have a kel tec of either the pf9 or p11 i would say the pf9 because i liked the grips and slightly bigger frame but thats about it

    I believe the trigger pull on the 11 is about 2 x that on the 9.

    You should look at the SCCY CPX-2. I have the PF-9 and bought the SCCY for my son, and the SCCY is much easier and more pleasant to shoot, has no mag safety, and has second strike (fires again without re-cocking) capability.

    It also comes with two magazines and a transferable lifetime warranty.

    The action is identical. One is single stack, and flat, the other is double stack, and fat.

    Your preference.
