Default Even hk has a striker fired pistol now

I am very interested in this gun especially with this price point. I just may have a glock for sale. This vp9 looks sort of like a striker fired p30 but more like a ppx/p30 combination. I just hope the trigger is comparable to the ppq or why bother. And yes I know hk was the first to have striker fired guns, but this is their first modern striker at a "budget price"


Never enough guns or ammo

from 1976 to 2007 hk produced and sold probably the finest striker fired pistol to hit the market.

the HK P7 and its on my want list. if you want an hk striker get the p7 if you can find one. other than that go with the xdm or xds.

one of the issues i have with the glock and M&P and its a deal killer is there is no real safety mechanism. anything gets in the trigger guard its going off. i dont see a safety on the new hk either.

i wish ya luck with it.

There is a local story of a guy using a public rest room in a fast food restaurant and hanging his Glock on one of those wooden peg hat/coat racks. Supposedly the gun went of and emptied the entire mag. Again I cannot verify this but with a gun with a relatively light trigger pull and no safety other than the trigger flipper I believe this could happen. If anyone would care to try this I'll buy the ammo I'm just curious, just not that curious!

I just don't believe in a gun is unsafe because of no external or grip safeties. Sigs and revolvers have been safe for years and now everybody fears guns that go bang when you pull the trigger. Good holster and practices and you'll be safe. ND's are always from improper handling of firearms, like trying to hang a gun by the trigger guard. The real only unsafe disadvantage of glock like pistols in my opinion is if you're dropping the gun and trying to catch it and somehow pull the trigger in your catching motion. But then again proper training can prevent that as well.

The HK is everything I dislike about a Glock x10. I don't like the Glock fingergrips. The HK has giant fingergrips. I don't like the Glock stippling. The HK is stippled like mad. I think I will pass no matter what the price might be.

Glock out sells Sig Sauer 100 to 1 anytime you have that many more pistols on the market you are bound to have more accidents.

I really like the looks and style of a sig 238. It's SA pistol with an 8lb trigger pull. I had to pass on that. If I am going to pay $600 for a micro pistol it has to have a decent trigger.

Have you held a hk p30? Feels better in the hand than any glock any day..of the week. The finger groves are not intrusive like the glocks. I don't really see this gun being that much better than my m&p9 so I will probably wait for a vp45 if it ever comes out. I just don't understand why hk doesn't up their magazine capacities. I know it's not necessary, just a preference

I think the VP9 will sell very well for HK. And, at its very reasonable MSRP, it'll put HKs in the hands of folks who have never owned one of their pistols before.

Striker-fired handguns without external safeties are fine. The best safety is the one between your ears. NDs occur because somebody broke one or more of the basic safety rules for handling firearms. It's not the gun's fault that some owners are numbskulls.

The VP9 and VP40 are on my short list.
