Last year I purchased an P 11. Other than a Pellet Gun its been my first handgun. Living in New Jersey; obtaining a pistol permit can be rather a big PITA. Criminal background check, mental health check, fingerprinting, etc etc...And once you get the permit, its only good for 90 days. And you can only buy 1 pistol every 30 days.... You can renew it once...After that its no good. Our choices of gun stores are a bit limited here and most of them stock the expensive models, Glock, S&W, Ruger, Kimber, etc. I asked them what the cheapest 9mm they had was, and it was a Taurus for $500 to $600 (not sure of the model number) When I asked for something a little cheaper they laughed at me....Well anyway with my time running out on the permit, not the mention that it was Winter time and snow storms, I did some research and purchased a P11. It was inexpensive; roughtly $265. After Watching Youtube videos and seeing bad things about Keltec, I wondered if I made a mistake....maybe I should have bought a SCCY or the Taurus.... Well anyway I didnt fire it as there are not too many ranges here...plus my wifes honey do this list....Well this past summer an indoor range opened up in the next town to me and I took my P-11 there...Boy was I impressed....this is really a nice gun... Recoil is not too bad...I put about 50 rounds thru it.... I fired my friends Sig P226.... but like my Keltec P-11 better...Just wish I had the chrome colored slide.....maybe I could spray paint it...
