    Question for those of you that have both a P3AT and a P11 - Is the length of the trigger pull the same on both?
    Let me s'plain; My trigger finger has stiff joints that limit how far I can move the trigger and how heavy a pull I can handle. (It's a long story - look at some of my previous messages if you are interested.)
    Now I have a P11 and can't quite pull the trigger - my finger locks up just before the break point. I installed one of 2PP's LHS kits and bingo! I can pull the trigger.
    Problem - I want it unmodified to use for concealed carry.
    Problem - My grip is wimpy enough that the P11 hurts!

    So, if I go to a P3AT - will it solve my length of trigger pull problem?

    The P3at is MUCH easier than a P11. I don't know if its much shorter but it is like butter compared to the P11. I say go to the store and try one first.

    I have both. Started with the P-11 and hated the trigger pull. Bought a P3AT and love it. the trigger, IMO has a much shorter pull and also much smoother. I have added a mag extenion, a belt clip, a grip sleeve and a ARMA-LASER. it's with me 24/7. On a side note , I have gotten more acustom to the P-11 and am starting to enjoy it also. [I will soon be adding a laser to this gun as well.]

    The P-3AT seems to me to have a much nicer trigger pull. It's also a real pocket piece but the P-11 really is too much...both in size and weight. The P-11 is nice for an IWB carry.

    Sure, that is the Kahr PM9. Read this review.

    "At the 9 mm Luger power level, the PM9 is one of the few true pocket pistols, and one of the most practical carry guns available."

    $900!!!!!!!! I'll carry my USP .40 S&W anyday before I pay $900 for a pocket 9mm.

    Sure, that is the Kahr PM9.  Read this review.

    It's NOT $900. Nowhere near that. That's probably the LIST price from when they first came out. I got mine new, out the door for $525 with night sights AND they come with an extra extended magazine. Let's see Kel-Tec do that. Oops! They don't! ;)

    And, before anyone brings it up. Yes, I do have a P11...and two P3ATs.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I've been looking for a P3AT locally to try out with no luck - I'll keep looking.
    I'll be posting a P11 for sale or trade shortly.

    Try looking at the PF9. 9mm. Easier trigger than the P11

    P3at is said to have a 5lb trigger pull P11 had 9lb. I didn't find info on the PF 9

    PF9 and P3AT have the same trigger systems so they should be pretty darn comparable on weight/pull.
