      PF-9 . . . Pinky Extension or not?

      Kel-Tec ships a Pinky Extension for the PF-9 mags. I have large-ish hands. I am not sure I like it.

      This should only depend on whether you need it or not. Do you feel comfortable shooting the gun without the extension?

      I too have largish hands, that's why I stuck with the P-11 and the pinky extension.

      pinkey ext.

      Just took my new
      pf 9 out to shoot. The pinkey floor plate added noting to comfort or function for me and made the printing in the wallet holster worse.

      the regular floor plate is fine 4 me.

      I don't have a PF-9. I've just bought a P-3AT, though.
      I think that finger extensions on pocket-gun magazines defeat the purpose of having a tiny pistol: they make the gun larger (well, OK, longer).
      I suggest that it's better to learn to shoot the mini-gun () in its smallest configuration, and then carry it that way.
      You're much more likely to have it in your pocket, if it's easier to pocket it.

      (Jean and I will be in Lost Angles until the 11th, closing up a recently-deceased aunt's apartment, and settling her affairs. See you on the 12th, or maybe a little later.)

      Think I'd like it for shooting purposes but not for concealment purposes.

      The extension fits between my 4th and pinky fingers, and it helps me steady the gun in my hand. I find it does not adversely affect either the concealability or the carryability of the weapon. I'll keep using it.

      I note you changed your avatar. I like this one better, FWIW.

      Thanks for the feedback Fred! I tried it both ways and am not completely sure - will decide after the PF9 comes back from Cocoa.

      As for the avatar - thanks! That's wifey and I on our 1st date in Alexandria, VA 4 years ago! I drove 11hrs for the 1st date - you betcha I was gonna have a picture to remember it by even if it was the worst 1st date ever!! Luckily The Man upstairs didnt let me down - when I let Him open the doors I usually like whats on the other side - when I try picking which doors to open ugly beasts jump out at me! Ha!

      I don't have big hands, but i don't prefer the pinky extension. The curved design uncomfortably pushes my pinky up. Maybe if the extension wasn't curved outwards. But at that point why not just get a larger clip.

      Where is Pittsboro? My dad used to live in Alexandria; now he's in Roanoke. I'll be flying in to Raleigh-Durham (RDU) the end of Feb and driving to ROA for a visit. Dad's 92 now, so I try to see him a couple times each year. He's retired, but he still preaches about 3 Sundays each month as fill-in for pastors who need a break or for congregations in between pastors.

      I haven't tried the extension yet but don't think I would like it with medium sized hands. Gun kicks quite a bit and I think given the short grip, to my hand anyway, that it would not get under the pinky enough to do much other than cause pain. If one could get a full hook under then I imagine it would tame some of the recoil and provide a bit more control. Depends on the shooter and hand size. I agree the extension tends to defeat pocket concealment and could hamper draw presentation.

      The pinky extension makes holding this gun so much more comfortable, the only question is finding one.

      Handall Jr. from Hogue

      This has probably been mentioned elsewhere, if that is the case I will repeat it here. I highly recommend the Hogue Handall Jr. for the PF9. I bought one of these sleeves at a local dealer for 10 bucks and it took me less than five minutes to install. It adds no signature to the pistol, but it makes it feel much more comfortable with or without the grip extension. I keep the extension in the pistol in the holster and the extension-less mag in reserve. I would say that this makes the pistol much more point-able, and makes it fill the hand better while reducing the slippery feeling of the composite. The grip fits without any trimming and it fits like it was made specifically for this pistol.

      Thanks,
      Rob

      I voted no little finger extension. I bought the gun because it is small. No desire to add extra size.

      I voted no, even though this is a very personal preference. I got the PF9 for its incredibly thin concealment at 12 oz.
      It's not much fun to shoot at the range, especially with +Ps, but a mag every-other-month + my other sidearms, keeps me in good practice for defensive use.
      The pocketclip works perfectly in my RF jeans pocket.

      I did get the finger extension for my P3AT and can actually lock 2 of my big fingers on the grip now. However, it does increase the grip size significantly, so I may remove it, eventually.
      My wife, retired, with tiny/weak hands, does not like the grip extension on her P3AT, even though she carries it in her purse. [??]

      Last I saw these mag extensions was on ebay for about $8.

      Thumbs up PF-9 useability

      A KelTec is not a shooting gun because after about 40-50 rounds at the range your hand and trigger finger WILL hurt. It is however a great EDC after a bit of Fluff n Buff.

      I just aquired a PF9, and I put the pinky extension on it. I like it, because the little gun has a very healthy recoil. Gives me better control. I also added this http://www.ktaddons.com/products.htm with same issue. I took it out today and ran over 100 rounds through without any problems. That brings the total rounds through the gun at over 200 right out of the box. Without clean & lube or any fluff & buff. I have also gotten a couple of more magazines with pinky exensions.
