Hi, Iam Dave and I am an... ooooops sorry wrong place. I just bought a Kel-Tek PF-9, googled Kel-Tek forums and just like that I am here. I am from the Seattle area and this is my first personally owned powder burner. I have a heavily modified air pistol and rifle that i use for plinking and rodents. There has been a lot of broad daylight home invasions in the Seattle /Tacoma area as of late, bold smashing things throught the sliding doors whether people are home or not. I am a retired Navy Chief and have had small arms training so I have shot guns throughout my life but never owned or kept a firearm in my home until now. There is just something in the air that says to me that it is time to have some personal protection. It now rests in a drawer by my bed, seven in the clip and one in the chamber, Hornady 124gr XTP hollow points. I applied for a concealed weapons permit on the way home from picking up my pistol. Now I am catching up on the posts about the new gun. They are a hard gun to find, must be a lot people getting the same feeling I am.
