I recently saw and handled a small autoloader called a Skyy it seems to be made in Fla. however having never heard of one before I was wandering if any of you had made the "mistake" or "great deal" in buying one.

I figured this would be a good place to gather info.
it seems well made and has a decent price.

Any and all info would be appreciated.

The Skyy seems to be an inexpensive gun competing with the Kel-tec P11 for that part of the market. It's intended for those who do not shoot a lot.

Both the Kel-tec and the Skyy are aimed at the non-enthusiast CCW market. Inexpensive, functional, reliable and available. But, they are not intended for heavy use.

If that fills your needs, try it for feel. The Kel-tecs have a longer track record. User group at http://www.ktog.com.

Now, if you want a reliable and durable small (but not really CCW for most of us) 9mm I suggest the S&W SW9VE late model Sigma. Make sure you get the SW9VE, not the earlier models which had issues.
$310 on sale locally here in FL. I got mine a few years ago for $289.
It has become the wife's sidearm, good for those with small hands.
The Taurus Millenium Pro in 9mm is another slightly more expensive alternative. $330 on sale locally in FL.

Thanks for the info. Not a big fan of the sigma too glock like. was attracted to the Skyy do to its size and the fact that it had a safety. Also having ten rounds seems an advantage most guns this size have at most six.

Just curious what leads you to believe it is not meant to be shot often.

A gent on another board claimed his Skyy lasted 180 rounds, and self destructed. I handled a Skyy next to a KelTec, and was left very unimpressed. If cheap is paramount to you, get a used Star BM single action 9mm for about $150, or a nice Makarov 9 Mak, a double action autoloader, for about the same.
If the Skyy fits you well, go get a KelTec P11, a decent gun, and worth the money.

Reports from Kel-Tec users. It isn't a gun you can put thousands or rounds through. You practice with a "real" gun, then carry the Kel-tec.
