Biased Opinion:

Taurus, because I've been so terribly impressed with my PT 24/7. As of now, 200 rounds through her (mixed ammo) without a single solitary issue. Great weight, great balance, great materials...phenominal firearm.

I had a pt140 and it was a great gun. Your talking a big size difference though. The keltec is more of a pocket gun where as the Taurus would need to be in some sort of concealed holster.
Not sure I really understand your thoughts as the MilPro 111 is only 1/4" longer and 1/4" wider. This is from both websites specs.

Have you also looked at the Sccy ? Sccy

And your purpose for this purchase?
Yeah, just saw one at a pawn shop last week. Think I want something with more of a track record.

Now that our shat Governor in Wisconsin said he is not running again, I am hopefull for CC to pass and that is what it would be used for.

Have you held them? The keltec seemed so much smaller and lighter to me.

Not the Kel-Tec yet......still trying to locate one locally.
These measurements are for the 3" barrels on both. Maybe that Taurus had a longer barrel. and I am aiming for a more slender gun. Thanks

I have a Kel-Tec P-11. While it is small, reliable, and easy to conceal, it has a strong recoil and a long trigger pull. I have not shot the Taurus, but I have held it. I am sure the Taurus would be much easier to shoot, but it is a bigger gun. If being able to carry in your pocket is not an issue, I would look at the Taurus over the Kel-Tec.

I have the PT-111 and the recoil is not bad and I have a Kel Tec P3AT as a BUG-24/7 pistol. The kel tec has a warranty like Hi Point and Taurus has Original owner lifetime warranty, which means you send in a warranty card. I haven't used the warranty on either one. The Taurus in a kholster and kel tec in a wallet holster works for me.

I WOULD GO WITH THE KELTEC. I OWNED A P-11 AND CURRENTLY OWN A 3AT. EXCELLENT GUNS NEVER A PROBLEM WITH EITHER. THE PF-9 FIXES THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAD WITH THE P-11 WHICH WAS THE LONG TRIGGER PULL. THAT IS ACTUALLY THE GUN I PLAN TO BUY NEXT.

I really like my Kel-Tec PF-9 thus far. I went with the PF-9 over the P-11 due to the lighter trigger and the single stack mag makes the PF-9 slimmer.
