    New Owner

    Well I'm now the proud new owner of a P11. I've been looking for awhile for a good compact to complete a CCW class with and I believe I found it. Brought it home, lubed and oiled it per the instructions on the very informative Kel Tec links provided here on the site and then the fun began.

    I put a couple of clips through it at home and I plan on breaking it in good at the range the first part of next week.

    Any helpful advice to a first time semi-auto owner is welcome?

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    lube it well, keep your finger off the trigger (it still bears saying), and practice.
    I just put another 50 through mine today (up to 600 now, in 2 months)
    The trigger on these, can be improved, and probably should if you are comfortable doing so. I put a nice cabinet bumper behind the trigger guard for an overtravel stop. my groups closed a lot after that.
    Enjoy.

    If you have any problems feeding jhps, polishing the barrel ramp and in side chamber helps. Mine is 3 y/o and has over 2000 rds thru it w/no problems. Dry firing w/snap caps helped me learn better trigger control and trigger has lightened up some. Good luck.

    I'm shooting Rem. UMC's right now and after a little lube in the right spots she's running like a sewing machine.

    Niadhf do you have a pic of your trigger stop? How did you go about installing it?
