VP9le x 2
VP9 Long Slide
P30LS 9 v3
P30L .40 v3
Had mine out yesterday to fire about 100 rounds of Winchester white box NATO 124 would loosen it up enough to work with 115 gr. loads. It's almost there; it occasionally fails to cycle fully. One type of ammo I can definitely disrecommend is Hornady 124 gr. "HAP" (Hornaday Action Pistol). This appears to be steel cased ammo with a truncated cone JHP. The last round in the magazine failed to extract, the slide closed on it and locked closed. Brute force in the form of impact was required to open the slide.
So, is anybody using the VP9L as an everyday carry yet? People do it with the 1911 and Glock 34, so clearly the size isn't a barrier (and I used to carry a 1911 years ago). I'm just wondering if I should switch to a fixed sight....
I’ve carried 34s with adjustable Dawson’s without any problems.

In the ongoing saga of 'what holster fits the L,' I wanted to add this:
For 3-gun, I usually swap between two different holsters. A CompTac with no retention--when the stage has you starting with the pistol, or you aren't doing anything that requires retention--and a Safariland ALS for a P30L when the stage has you running/jumping/climbing, etc. Although it is for a P30, the holster works perfectly with the VP9, so I never bothered to get a different one. Earlier today I hit it with a heat gun for a few seconds, and just like the CompTac, it now fits the L perfectly.
This place is costing me lots of money - LOL!
Just ordered the Hk Long Slide kit for my VP9.
