Fortunately for me, I bought quite a few....back when I thought they were too much. I had the "gotta have everything" HK bug. I also realized I don't care for the P7's, so I sold all but 1. As has been said....buy once, cry once. Just choose wisely.
"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it.
You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good.
Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy.
Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."

Well I guess I could work more and get more money to buy another one, but by the time I save that much, they'll be more expensive which means I'll have to work even more which will mean I'll be a slave to the P7 which is just what everyone said would happen.
I love to have one but the price is too high and with HK not making parts for it would cost a lot to fix I miss out on the P7 back when you could get one at a good price.
Change Happens. I have never owned a p7, but if they remade it I would likely buy one. But how many people do you think would? Enough to sustain profitability? We will likely never know. Like I said change happens. It's just a fact of life.
A Diamond is just a piece of coal that made good under pressure!
It's expensive and time consuming to produce and requires very tight tolerances. High production costs lead to low margins in order to make it to marketable.
I'm glad I bought some P7s before the market went full retard. I'd like to pick up one more LNIB M13 but that's real unlikely to happen now. I don't buy them for investment potential and at current prices -- as much as I love the pistol -- that's the only reason to buy one that really makes sense. Unless of course you can pick up a PD trade in or the like. Occasionally a few of those will hit the market (and evaporate in minutes). Last year around this time I was able to pick up a PD trade in M13 and I can't recall the price but it was under $2G and in really nice shape. WISH I'd bought two.
Still, hold out hope. You still occasionally hear of somebody scoring a sweet deal on one at a reasonable price from an estate sale or dumb luck at a LGS.
