I have considered both and would like some educated opinions...i believe I can find those here, right? She is a novice shooter, CHL holder and enjoys the sport, or my company...either way. She has shot Sigs mostly, but the P6 I bought for her to carry is too big/heavy. I originally was sold on the p3at but have since been looking at the pf9. I am confident in her ability to handle them both and to handle herself in a situation where she would need either. My only reservation with the pf9 is the felt recoil, and I know there are some effective fixes for that. My only reservation with the p3at is adding another caliber (and a somewhat expensive one ) to the arsenal. What would you do faced with THOSE two choices?
