Purchased one a few months back and I'm impressed. Gun has a great trigger for a striker fired polymer gun, it's a lot better than any glock, m&p or xd. I only wish they made a 5" barrel for competion, it would defiantly replace my Xdm competion if they do come out with one. Ofcourse your glock fan boys are going to put down the gun but if you are in the market for a new polymer gun I recommend checking one out. I have only put a few hundred rounds thru it so can't really comment yet in reliability but so far no hiccups. I perfer to purchase USA made guns but besides Ruger or the M&P there are not many choices these days and HK seems like a reputable company. Just my two cents

Been thinking about buying one myself. I handled one yesterday and it's the best feeling gun I believe I've ever held. Will be buying soon!

Ya the grip is one of my favorite things about it, with the extra grips you can get it just right.

I thought about getting one, I even played with it for a bit, but I'm not retraining to use that paddle magazine release. No idea why h&k does that knowing the U.S. market shys away from that style. Which is a shame because I really did want to like it.

I ended up getting the PPQ M2 instead. I felt the trigger and ergonomics were better on it, plus it has the right style mag release. I even like the Sig P320 over the VP9. If they change the style of mag release I might get one, even though I'd hate to give money to a company that doesn't want civilians to own their guns. It's still an h&k and I'd love to own one, even though I'm just a lowly civilian lol

I'd take a 1911 over any of the poly guns, any day. I'm glad you like your purchase!

Glad you like the 1911s I know I like my Ruger 1911 but I was simply trying to give a review of the Vp9 for people looking in to them and don't remember bringing up the 1911. There is always that one guy though ....

I bought a VP9 for my wife. It was her first handgun and she shot about 10 different ones before really liking the VP9. I got a great deal at the gun show last weekend... $632 out the door.

I bought my VP 9 back in December and I am thoroughly impressed. The trigger is much better than the HK P30 or USP. I am more than pleased with the accuracy and ergonomics. I don't understand the comparison with a 1911. I love my Dan Wesson Valor but don't understand why you would compare it to a HK VP 9. I love my plastic VP 9, Glock 34, and my 1911s as well. They are all great guns and what is the point of the comparison?

The point is that if you're going to spend $600 on a pistol, I should buy the one that I like better. I have shot a VP9, and I prefer my 1911. If you own and like the VP9, I am happy for you. I personally don't care for any of the plastic pistols.

I bought mine online and paid $580 including FFL fee. I couldn't imagine paying $800. I did get the regular VP9 and not the LE
