Back in 1995, this sort of unknown company in Florida started making small and cheap polymer framed pistols. The P-11 was an instant hit. The LE market loved it for its backup ability to the 5906. Kel-Tec made this gun to take S&W magazines. 22 years later and the gun is still popular and loved. It's still cheap and it's still a great bargain for a CCW gun.
