BTW there's a little trick to reducing the trigger pull force. I dropped mine a couple pounds, didn't cost a thing.

You can learn more than you wanted to know.
Just sent my P11 to "Bill" at Kel-Tec to look into my issue with the takedown pin popping out.
Maybe he will replace that spring too since I also complained about the trigger pull.
Yes the trigger DOES suck, no it's not really much fun to shoot with really hot loads, but for the purpose this gun is intended for it is perfectly adequate. 7 yard rapid fire groups are all inside a six inch circle with 124gr Golden Sabre. If I need sub 3 inch groups at 25 yards I carry my G30 or 1911. Most of the people who hate the little KTs are trying to make them something they are not. They are not range guns or target pistols or plinkers. They are very small, highly concealable, reliable, TOOLS that you can always have with you to save your bacon at close range.
My gun shoots 3.5" groups off the bench at 25 yards. It's been doing that for 14 years and over 11K rounds now. I see no reason to bother with another similar gun. To me, it's neigh on the perfect pocket PDW. It is 2 whole ounces heavier and 0.2 whole inches wider. For that you get more firepower, good trade off IMHO. If I were to be buying a NEW pocket 9, I might go for the PF9, though, for the slimmer profile. It still holds 9 rounds I think, not that bad. I just have the 10 round mags for the P11, never got the 12 rounders. BUT, it ain't worth the hassle to buy a new PF9 and sell the P11. Besides, the gun has never jammed, not in 11K rounds plus. It's quite proven itself.
These days my P11 pulls duty hidden in a false book sitting high on a sconce next to my front door. But often when I go out to exercise (read walk) I take the P11 along.
Now, that's funny....
The Kel Tec P11 is a fine gun for the money...
It is a real bargain. What's not to like about it. Heck, it is very reliable, easy to conceal, has 10 shots , a potent 9mm, and all for a very reasonable price. I like mine a great deal and consider it one of the best carry guns I have.
