One of the lightest and flattest 9mm pistols ever made, the PF-9™ is also one of the most concealable. This semi-automatic has a double action only firing mechanism, with an automatic hammer-lock safety. Developed from our highly successful P-11™ and P-3AT™ pistols, it retains many of their best features. Of course, as concealable as the PF-9 is, others won’t see them. MSRP: $356.36OK, I'll start:

At the time, PF9s were in very short supply. A dealer with whom I had never done business had this pistol. The price was fair. That he would not budge on his price did not bother me, as I was ectatic to find the Hard Chrome over Navy model, which of course is no longer available.
Before its maiden voyage, I cleaned and lubed the gun, and of course that is repeated every time the gun is fired. It has not had a fluff & buff or any polishing. The fit and finish on this pistol was very good.
At about 750 rounds, it has been flawless to date, and has functioned perfectly with the following ammo: 115 grain FMJ - Fiocchi, Monarc, Blazer Brass, and even the often nefarious Win White Box + 115 gr JHP (standard pressure) - Speer Gold Dot, which accounts for about 1/4 of the ammo that's gone down the tube, and about all it ever sees now.
Some of our gunboards seem to have a thread like this, the PF9 board didn't. Obviously the PF-9 is a very hot seller these days and a lot of new folks here doing research would probably like to see this information.

I think the switch to a striker fired trigger would also allow them to bring the back of the slide down at a sharper angle and shorten the beaver tail, slightly reducing overall length and weight (picture the rear of a DB9), tightening the weight competition with DiamondBack and furthering the already considerable weight difference with the Rugers and Shield.
Oh, one more thing that goes almost without saying, Be sure to keep the accessory rail.
