    It's my primary summer gun. The factory belt clip is a must-have IMO. Really brings out it's true purpose.

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

    I carry mine daily but I am wanting a P3at now after seeing and handling one. The P-11 pack a good punch in a nicely sized package.

    Ha!
    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. :)
    Thanks!

    I LOVE my P-11. It's my summer EDC piece in addition to a P-3AT or P-32. I have 1600 rounds through it with ZERO malfunctions.
    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.

    I carry my P11 in the same pocket holster shown in saturno_v's pic. It is my BUG to whatever I wear on my hip on a given day. The little guy has been flawless since I did a F&B the first week I owned it.

    Hi all. Just joined and my first post. I have had my P11 for over a year now. I have upgraded it with a steel guide rod and a fluff and buff to help it feed. In 500-600 rounds i havent had one jam since the first 2 boxes went through it. I have installed and Arma Laser and carry in a Crossbreed holster ISB that i modifed to work with the Laser. The laser is extremely bright and can shine a long distance at night. I love the auto on feature when you stick your finger infront of the trigger. It is a very small gun in my big old bear paw but i bought it to hit what a point the laser at. Plain and simple.

    Yeah, old post, but I've seen much older drug up here. Good to know newbies find the search function. And, as I never posted on this thread, I will. I have been carrying a P11 for 14 years now and see no reason to change. It carries well in MY pockets and has more firepower than the newer PF9, not much, but slightly. I prefer the trigger on the P11, to be honest, for a pocket gun. It's longer throw means you have to want to pull it to get the job done. When adrenalized, it feels much lighter and shorter, too. It is very smooth and easy to hit with.

    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.

    Might as well join the old thread. I'm with MCgunner. The P11 is hard to beat on price and capacity for the size. Smaller 9mm's are not THAT much smaller, especially at this price point. However, I might go for a PF9 if I were buying one today, because I do find its grip to be more comfortable. Also, the P11's trigger is heavy, but I've never had a problem with it.

    Ha. I was gonna jump in on this thread... then I realized I'm the guy who posted it in the first place.

    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.

    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.
