Default Picked up an HK VP9



Advertise Here

I picked it up Friday night and spent Saturday morning cleaning it and trying out different grip combo's. I settled on the small backstrap and medium side panels at first (pictured) but went back to the medium backstrap after some holster drills. I will probably change them again once I get a chance to fire it. It's really cool that HK has this grip setup on the VP9. It allows the user to customize the grip to your individual needs. I hope to shoot it this week but I have been pretty busy. If it shoots as good as it feels, I will be very pleased.

Congrats on your newest handgun purchase!

The HK VP9 is an awesome weapon! I have never shot one but have handled one and I really like the ergonomics. I used to own it's young granddaddy the HK45 which led to the HK P30 which then eventually led to the HK VP9 and I loved it.

I actually own the VP9's rival the Walther PPQ. Both have their pros and cons but are so much a like it really makes no difference. Anyway it really comes down to personal preference.

The HKVP9 and Walther PPQ are by far my favorite striker-fired hand guns.

The Sig P320 is really nice but doesn't have the superior ergonomics of the
VP9 and PPQ.

The only thing I did not like about my HK45 was the spongy trigger and cheap feeling Manual Safety/Decocker lever.
The HK VP9 is striker-fired and has an excellent trigger.

If H&K comes out with the HK VP45 I will be all over that!

Try doing one side larger than the other. I have large hands; on my P30 I have the medium backstrap, large right side, and small left side and it feels like it was molded to my hand.

At first I didn't like the VP9. I figured if I wanted a striker fired I would get a Glock. The more I read about them the more I liked them. After fondling one I liked even more. I finally bought one and I love it. Very very accurate and the trigger is amazing. Did I say I loved it?

I touched a HK VP9 for the first time about a month a ago.....now I own 2 (one is a LE version) is now my EDC. Ironically, I bought my first 9mm (.45 ACP is my prefer caliber) during the holidays, a Glock 17 LAV and is was fine.

The HK VP9s is one my favorite EDC.....accurate, reliable and fun to shoot.

I too, look forward to owning a HK VP45.
