    I too am a fan of the KelTec.

    I'm 6'2" and 160 lbs soaking wet with a pocket fulla quarters. It's hard to conceal on me when I wear my typical daily attire (Jeans and a T-Shirt) Put my Ruger P95 in my pocket and it looks like I'm smuggling a .50 cal BMG.

    My Girlfriend has a KelTec P11 and an Uncle Mike's holster.
    I slipped that inside my waistband and left my shirt untucked. Concealed beautifully; I think I'll get one. I'd just like to find a more rigid holster than the Uncle Mikes... That, and it's a little uncomfortable. But then again, very few people make Left handed holsters.


    Only bad thing about the P11, I've heard is that someone at my local range put 500-600 rounds a week through one for a few months... After about the 6th slide or barrel KelTec asked what he was doing with it and told him to knock that off...
    But for a $300 gun that's that small and has a lifetime warranty, I don't think that's that bad a problem.

    Default What about a Rohrbaugh?

    I understand a Rohrbaugh R9 is a very small 9mm gun (one of the smaller ones out there) and well made--being all metal. Has any one here handled one? How does this compare with the other guns mentioned in this thread?

    See post# 3. (there is a link there)

    It seems to be the smallest 9mm made, and probably the best of any mentioned here. But at around $1000, it sure oughtta be.

    Yes, I saw the Rohrbaugh link. That was why I wondered if anyone here has one and whether it handles well. You're right, at that price, it should be "well worth it". There seems to be very little info out there on who is pleased (or displeased) with that brand. The size, looks, and supposed quality are appealing, but the price...

    Handled yes, fired No. I did handle one at a gun show some time ago and found it very similar in size to the P-3AT and the LCP. It comes in two versions one "with" sights and one without. The one I handled was the with but darn if I could say it had a sight picture. I have to figure it is designed as a point & shoot just like the 380s are, more for within a few feet than any long distance shot.

    I would love to fire one to fee what the recoil is like, but I do not know of any range that has one.

    Read what the owners and true believers have to say:

    You'll probably learn more in an hour or two or reading there than you will asking about them for months on other threads.

    I recently chose the Kel-Tec PF9 for my CCW. Put 100 rounds through it the first day, without a single jam. I was supprised how well it shot. The sites need work. Shoot the target head and hit the chest almost every time. It will fit in my back pocket nicely.I did pick up an ankle holster. it works well. you will see some printing. Also have a Fobus paddle holster. there must be a better solution for a holster. Rent one, try one!

    +1 on the Kahr. I have the CW9, which runs just under $400. I carry it in a Galco ankle holster, a 5.11 holster shirt or a motorcycle vest with a CCW compartment. Occasionally I carry it as my primary piece in a Mernickle OWB holster. With my body type, I can't conceal anything larger with just a shirt over it. I find it comfortable in all of these position.

    The Kahr is the smallest. I owned a PM-40. It was a great little gun, but too abusive. I might very well own a PM-9 someday. That said, I LOVE my P-3AT. I'm getting some 100 gr bullets to load up for it soon, since factory ammo is non-existant.
