This may just be me, but I have a hard time getting a clean trigger break on them and have to adjust my grip compared to other handguns. Can't explain why, and it isn't an issue on other sticker fired guns with worse (sometimes dramatically) feeling triggers (glock, m&p gen 1 and 2)
Wife has one. She loves it. I’ve shot it and I like it also. Accurate and an easy shooter. She also has the 6 inch barrel and slide kit for it. The barrel locks up tighter and makes it an even better shooter. Mags aren’t all that expensive.
The VP9 is what she uses in tactical shoots at our local range. She’s always a top 5 finisher against the guys.
I have both the V P9 and VP 9 SK and carry them daily. As mentioned above mags are pricey. I love them, shoot well, digest any ammo, and contrary to the above post I am able to achieve optimal grip and shoot better with them than any Glock I own or have owned. Nothing against Glocks at all, except the ergos do not work for me on any level.
I have a VP9 tactical and it’s a great shooter. The trigger is one of the best striker fired triggers out there as maybe second behind the Walther PDP/PPQ. I prefer it over my tricked out Taran tactical G34. Great gun and it fits so well in the hand and it’s a natural shooter. I don’t find the mags to be expensive at 48 bucks but I also shoot mainly 2011s. Plus they are cross compatible with my P30L.
One of the best polymer striker pistols available as far as I'm concerned. Fit's the hand well, very reliable (mine is somewhere in the 8-9k roundcount range with the only malfunctions [2 of them] coming from Tulammo steel shit), and accurate. Has been well received by everyone that has shot it. 3 or 4 of my shooting buddies ended up getting one after shooting mine.
I just picked up one and have a VP9 Match coming in. I did switch the medium back piece for the small and kept the medium side panels. Pretty dang accurate, offhand at 25 10 rounds was an easy 3" grouping. Trigger is nice, seems to be easier to manipulate with no apparent lateral influence. In other words, less prone to be affected by finger placement errors.
I love my Glocks and Sigs. Simplicity of the Glocks, modularity of the Sig(320 series)(Classic beauty of the P22XX) But the ergonomics on the HK are better and built extremely well.
One thing is the recoil seems to be a tad bit more on these, noticeable to me but not enough to where it makes a difference. Reseting the trigger in recoil, tracking the sight and seeing what I need to see before hitting the gas relative to how fast I want to go around the corner isn't affected.
