    Default Bought never used VP9, new to guns

    I bought a never used VP 9 mm that is made in 2015. It has never been used. And I am new to guns.
    Do I need to clean and lube it before using it on range? How do I disassemble and clean and lube it?
    What are best products to use to do this?
    What type and grain of ammo should I shoot through it?
    Does it need some specific type and grain of ammo to break it in?
    Appreciate your help.
    Thanks so much.

    Jrandall,
    Welcome to the forum.

    Did you get a manual with your new pistol? In it will tell you ammo wt (115g or 124g)

    YES you should clean it, for no other reason is that it will teach you how to do it your self. Again, that should also be in your manual. It is really easy.

    again,, welcome to the Red & Black road. We ARE the HK ENABLERS forum.

    This should be covered in the owners manual. Read through it a few times. Make sure you learn the gun before taking it to live fire. Perhaps take a buddy with some experience.

    Welcome and congratulations on a great choice for you first firearm. Before anything, do yourself and everyone else around you a favor and take an NRA sanctioned “intro to pistol” and firearms safety course or equivalent at your earliest convenience. Learn firearm handling, safety and range etiquette
    BEFORE ever loading the firearm.

    Be safe and have fun!

    And when you are done reading the manual, read it again. Also, search the forum for questions and answers.

    You are literally asking us to type out things that are in the manual. Don’t get butt hurt because we aren’t being redundant.

    Thanks for the Welcome. What makes you say “We”? Who is We? I think you speak only for yourself. If you have nothing good to say, don’t say it.

    I’m sorry you’re butt hurt over the suggestion to read the manual. The manual clearly explains disassembly and lubrication. I mean why won’t you read it? Too lazy?

    If you are genuine and this is the first gun you ever owned you would be best served to read the manual, field strip per the instructions in the manual and familiarize yourself with the weapon. You would also be best served to find a beginners class on guns and gun safety before you even put one round in it, the VP9 could easily discharge accidentally. Guys are trying to help you but you sport a cocky attitude, something smells fishy here to me.
