    If it is a range gun, I would careless if it had night sights. Go with non-LE and save some $$$. The stock Luminova sights are pretty decent for a range gun.

    I don't know of anybody off the top of my head that has that exactly setup in stock for both right now. But you quoted Buds, where the VP9 is $100 more than the Glock...and the Glock has less expensive additional magazines and the same, or less expensive, night sights, so it's going to be $100 or greater savings. Apples to apples, same retailer at teh same time.

    An HK VP9 costs more than a Glock 19/17/whatever. That's just he way it is. Every now and then somebody might get a screaming good deal on a VP9, a deal most people can't get, but that doesn't change that the HK costs more than the Glock. That's...just the way it is.

    They do. Which is competitive with a decent retail price on a Glock plus night sights, depending on what night sights you go with. You can order a Glock for right at $500 and a spare mag for $20 which leaves $120 to get your choice of night sights, and you can certainly get some and have them installed for that much or less.

    MY experience is that I want to put very specific night sights on a pistol so I don't ever buy them with the factory stuff, making the LE edition or equivalent a bad buy




    But to bring us back to the beginning, a VP9 LE is not cheaper than a 9mm Glock with night sights and three mags. And once yous tart adding more magazines...forget about it

    Con: If you buy one it may literally force you to spend more money than you wanted to. Example:

    I already bought a second VP9 (and my contention is that the first one forced me to do it)

    I would still buy smaller versions.

    Pro: Ergo, Trigger, Sexiness, Flawless (at least my 2)

    Con: I've yet to get one in FDE, & HK hasn't released one in Urban Grey, therefore I don't have one in Urban Grey.

    "Look Basil, twins"....I did the same thing. I have two VP9s in case zombies attack and I need to dual wield. Plus, it's nice to be able to rotate them regarding range time, my first VP9 has 7200 rounds, my second is at 2600 and catching up as time allows.

    Nice. I'm definitely behind there. I got the first one last September and the second one this month. 2,350 rounds and 140 rounds so far

    For me it would be that it is fast shooting as pro, but the downside for me is it is 9mm... which is borderline for me personally. As summer carry it would be OK, but I would be better in .40 IMO.

    Default Pros & Cons of VP9 LE

    Whittaker Guns had the regular one for 479 and the LE for 549 this morning

    I had the non LE version that I sold a few months back. I was feeling sellers remorse a bit and stumbled across this deal. I thought about the LE version but truth be told my previous VP9 and my current P30L and P30SK both have the regular sights and I like them.

    I put a non LE version on layaway

    Both sold out by this afternoon....there are some real good deals if you look around on the VP9.
