    Heck, I don't need a stinking cheese grater! I'm such a man that I just hold it in my hand with a really tight grip. Too bad I could not handle running +P thru that PF9 I had a while ago. I ran one magazine of the stuff and thought the gun was going to come apart.

    It's plain and simple. If the manufacturer of your weapon recommends you DON'T USE +P ammo, then DON'T USE IT. You'll void any kind of warranty and accelerate the wear and tear on your weapon. And, most importantly, it is dangerous to you and people around you.

    There is a plethora of fantastic standard pressure SD ammo out there. Using +P in a non +P rated weapon is foolish and gains you nothing.

    I agree. I ran one magazine full through the one I had, and that was enough to tell me that the gun is a little on the lite side for that sort of thing.

    If you want to shoot +P buy a good gun.....Kel Tecs are not made to handle +P. They are easy to afford and easy to find on the shelves.

    Keltec's website states that +p can be used but not for continuous use.

    The PF-9 will accept +P ammunition, however, not with continuous use. Thats what most manufactures advise, just use them sparingly to check out for functioning and accuracy and you should be good to go for carry, however there are many standard loads that will perform just as well as +p's but with less of the wear.. Rangers, Hornady, SXT"S and Gold-dot to name a few.

    I know Im late to this, but I recently tried sum Winchester Ranger Nato rounds in my Kel-Tec PF9 and I believe those are +P and I havent had an issue. I only ran maybe 2 mags thru it to be safe. Ive heard that you shouldnt continuously feed most pistols with +P ammo because it will wear them down, so I havent done it that much.

    "Just like the P-11, the PF-9 will accept +P ammunition, however, not with continuous use." This is on Kel Tec's website in the Pf9's description. Personally, I am not comfortable with using +p ammo in my PF9 because although I love it, it IS cheaply built.

    Howdy,

    I have a PF-9 and I use standard pressure either 115gr or 147gr JHPs and I carry a spare mag with NATO spec 124gr JSP.

    I had issues with FTF in the 147 grainers, but the 124's and 115's work well. I traded off my PF-9 a while ago for the P-11, large hands an issue, but neither of my Kel Tecs like or liked the 147 grain bullets...just too much of an OAL I think.

    I have scored a few boxes of a Mag Tech 92.6 grain solid copper JHP's that the P-11 seems to like, and these are standard pressure loads that are speedy!

    The premium ammo is good enough now that I have never felt the need to go to +P or +P+ in my PF9. It's hard enough to hold onto as is without adding to the equation. I would also like to be able to fire faster follow-up shots if need be. Just my .02.

    You are aware that this thread is from Jan 2010, I will respond to this thread but most are gone from the original conversation on this. I use 115 gold dots in my PF9 and they work very well.

    Old thread but I do use +P for a carry load in my PF9. Range use regular ball ammunition. Have fired 124gr +P, 124gr NATO, and 147gr cartridges out of my PF9 a few times at the range. When I get to the range and before I finish shooting the PF-9, I feed a magazine of my +P carry cartridges every time. Must have some practice with the carry load you will be carrying.
