The PF-9 was gonna be my next firearms purchase too.. Until "Wilson" and the KelTec unofficial PF-9 beta testers found so many flaws in the first batch..
I'm a big KelTec fan. I have a P32 & P11. I was all set for the PF-9, but now I'm gonna wait 6mo to a year until KT gets 'em right. (As I'm sure they will).
I'm not a gunsmith, and I prefer my firearms to work properly right out of the box.. I'm just not convinced the PF-9 is ready for prime time ... Cracked frames/slides/premature hammer wear/rear sight screws too long, ect. just scare the crap out of me in a pistol I plan to cc and defend myself & family with.
I'm not a KelTec basher by any means. I just wish they had kept the PF-9 "in house" for testing a bit longer rather than let a few bad ones hit the consumer market.
In fact (primarily to "Shipwrecks" glowing praise of the P99), I just ordered a new Walther P99c/AS with the money (+additional money) I had planned to contribute to KelTec for a PF-9.
Perhaps the P99c/AS will be good enough I won't need a PF-9? Ah, makes no difference, I'll still probably one sooner or later anyway.
