Kel-Tec P-11

I think I’m finally going to get a Kel-Tec P-11 9mm handgun pretty soon. I went down to a new sporting goods store they have here in town, and they said they could get one in about two weeks, and it’d cost around $250. I was thinking about waiting until next week when I go into work to check the Provo/Orem area to see if anybody has that particular handgun in stock, but the more I thought about it, the more I doubted anybody will have one. And that would set me back three weeks instead of two, so I’ll probably order mine either today or tomorrow.
Cabela’s has 300 rounds of 115-grain full metal jacket reloads for $40, or about 13 cents per round. I’ll definitely be getting those, plus probably a box of Federal 135-grain Hydra-Shok JHPs for carrying.
Of course, I’ll have to get my concealed firearms permit, a locking case for the gun, an inside-the-waistband holster, at least one spare magazine, and probably many other accessories. Most of that will have to wait, though, because I can barely afford the actual handgun as it is.

  1. Don’t waste your money on that junk. Save up another 300 bucks and get the Heckler and Koch USP .40 It’s a much much better handgun. They also have a 45 and a 9 mil, but for concealed, an HK .40 USP compact is the gun to use. Top notch, 5 stars, you get the idea.

  2. Not junk… Not top of the line of course for under $300, but definately not junk.
    No arguement that some of the other weapons out there are better quality.. Guess they’ll probably last longer.. 80 years instead of 50 :).. But my kel-tec is definately good enough for me. I’ve fired hundreds and hundreds of rounds since I got mine 4 or 5 months ago without any trouble at all after the first few “break-in” rounds..
    It’s extemely small, extremely light, It’s incredibly easy to field-strip and clean, kel-tec has excellent customer service if you ever need a part or something, and at that price you have enough money left over to buy some extra magazines, lots of ammo, a holster, and still have some cash left over.

  3. I don’t carry that often… I feel pretty safe in this little podunk town… But I like to have the option available to me if I want to.
    And could someone please tell me why there’s this fear of people who have a permit to carry concealed? They’re probably the safest and most responsible people when it comes to guns in existance. Next to (maybe) the police. It’s the criminals that feel they need to carry an illegaly concealed weapon that I’m concerned with.

  4. I think that if you pass the govt. screening to carry a concealed weapon, you should be allowed to carry.
    And Tyson, you’re right, I didn’t mean to call it junk. Point, squeeze, fire. It all works, and that is a spactacular price for a 9 mm

  5. As far as passing a govt. screening test.. As long as the government didn’t have the option to limit who can take the test (except people with criminal records of coure…I’m talking about barring average everyday law-abiding people), I guess I could live with that.
    The potentially bad thing with federal government control of ccw permits is that they could just up and choose to allow say… “only members of some police or security force, and politicians and/or celbrities who have enough money to buy off whoever they need to in order to get the permit.”
    I can live with the test being more difficult.. I actually think my ccw test was a bit too easy. And I have no problem proving to anybody that I am safe, accurate, and very knowledgeable about firearms… But I don’t want the government to be able to tell me I can’t own and conceal a handgun just because they think it’s a bad idea, regardless of the fact that I both know what I’m doing, and am not a criminal.

  6. I have had a kel-tec p-11 for 6 months now and I love it. It’s my conceal carry weapon and I haven’t had any problems with it since I have bought it.
