I like it (P7M8) and carry it when clothing restrictions don't necessitate ankle carry. The weight on the waist doesn't bother me as it doesn't strike me as excessive, and the weight soaks up any recoil nicely. I typically carry one or 2 mags depending on dress. I won't carry a gun without handcuffs, either, but that's me, and it balances out the belt.
All I know is I can run a QUAL course with it way better than our issue handgun, it just necessitates more frequent mag changes, and gets pretty hot towards the end! Since it's just an off-duty carry gun for me, and I'll never have more than 3 mags with the gun, the heating up is kind of a moot point, to me.
I have a P7M10, on the other hand, and other than as a collector's piece, I have no affection for it. A massive mutated Frankenpistol that I will never carry.
Given the cost of P7 pistols, there are certainly better options available. My other carry pistol is an old Gen II Glock 19, and there's not much that I can do with the P7M8 that I can't do as well with the Glock.

I've always wished that concept gun was real. HK needs a single stack nine in production again. Don't get me wrong, I love my PPS M2 but I shoot HK's better. I know I shoot the P7 better.
