    You did not clean the gun before you shot it and still haven't yet? Good luck and have fun with your new weapon and all the add ons.

    I bought it from local small gun shop. I field stripped and it looked good, so I decided to give it a try. If I had any problems I would contributed them to being loaded with packing grease or some such, but it ran fine. Now I will take it down and give it good clean and lube.
    We did the same thing to my wife's Glock 27 without any problems.

    I can't use my little finger on it but wrap it underneath the magazine. My ring finger rests on the extension where the pinky is supposed to rest quite nicely.

    I just bought a Kel-Tec PF-9 and it had the pinky extension on both the magazines. I removed them. Not sure why it's called "Pinky" since I have small hands and my pinky doesn't come close to fitting on the grip.

    Without the extension, no issues for me. Personally, I'd prefer a 2 round extension for it...then my pinky will have a place to sit. Does anyone make one?

    I just bought a PF-9 last week and was able to shoot it over the weekend for the first time. I also purchased and extra mag with it so I was able to try with and without the extension. This may be an issue because it is new, but the empty mags would not fall from the gun. Instead they had to be pulled out when the slide is back (not so much closed). The extension made this easy, but I sure hope with another 100-200 rounds it fixes itself. I would rather not have the extension.

    Anybody else have this issue with their NIB PF-9?

    I don't have this weapon, but I think that if you leave off the pinkie extension and shoot enough you will never miss it. If you shoot with the pinkie extension first and then take it off it will never feel right again. I would leave it off for 500 rounds or so to see if I could adapt to it. The grip size is the part that prints through tee-shirts (where I would carry this type of weapon) so I would want the grip to be as small as possible. So I vote to leave it off for the first 500 rounds (don't switch back and forth).

    I don't have this weapon but if I did I would shoot it for 3 or 4 months regularly without the pinkie extension exclusively. After that time I would imagine I would have adapted to the grip and would not miss the extension.

    If you apply the extension early you will miss it no matter what.

    By in large the human body (and mind) is highly adaptable. I would not compromise the concealability until I have exhausted my efforts to adapt to the weapon without the grip extension.

    I have a P3AT with the pinky extension on two mags, and one without. When I carry in the pocket, I put the magazine without the extension on it. That extension tends to "print" through my pocket.

    Kel-Tec is now selling +1 magazine extensions...

    ...solid, very well designed. Shooting is veru much improved. The roughly 1/2" increased height of the PF9 effects concealability a bit...but not by much.

    Kel-Tec has just come out with a magazine extention that also adds +1 capasity to the magazine making the gun 8+1. I just ordered one this morning. You can get it just the base plate extention or pre-installed on a new magazine.

    I plan on ordering a nine round magazine from Cheaper Than Dirt for my P3AT. These are factory mags that run only about 24.00 dollars.

    Whats wrong with your PF9?
    I had some hiccups with mine in the beginning, but after F&B and a couple thousand rounds through it, it's like a Timex :-p
