Pro= It's a Heckler & Koch product
Con= It's not a USP :-)
Everything that dms16 said as a con. He forgot that the VP9 will not feed rounds if they are put into the mag not backwards.
Stuff. And thangs!
Well, at the risk of sounding like a hater. Mine pinched my trigger finger like no gun I've had before and it sounded like a rusty chaise lounge when it was racked. Big HK fan here, I have a 9MM Expert and a .45 Elite and am looking to add a 9MM USP compact at some point.
I don't like that magazines are (much) more expensive than my Glock magazines. They are less than FNS magazines though.
I don't like that there is only the one size, full size, and that's it, no compact, no sub compact, no long slide or tactical/practical/competition, just the one and that's it.
I don't like that it doesn't seem to be as consistently reliable in adverse conditions as Glock or some others, though there are more videos showing it work than not, including one where a Glock 19 fails and the VP9 does not...the main lesson being don't jump to conclusions on anything based on n=1.
I like the ergonomics. The trigger. The way it shoots/hits. That mine has been as reliable as one can reasonable expect (1 FTRTB with inexpensive 115gr FMJ in first 150 rounds, zero other malfunctions since, currently at 2,350 rounds).
I would buy a second. And I would buy smaller size versions like a compact and an SK.
Not sure what any Con would be for the VP9? In LE, ZY or ABC. It's a great gun. I guess being striker fired would be a Con. Because real "operators" use hammer fired pistols lol.

Pure classic. To hk haters they are nodding along and yepping with every bullet point.
I have the vp9 le. Really like the extra mag and night sights. Reason i bought that version. Dollar for dollar cheaper than a glock for 3 mags and night sights. Plus it's a hk. what else needs to said
