The effectiveness of compensators (or match weights) varies from shooter to shooter.

    By 'learn to shoot' I'm hoping you meant 'learn my individual weapons unique quirks' as that would be awkward otherwise since this is simply my first 9mm and not my first firearm. My carry piece for the last few years has been a 1911 chambered in 45ACP. As for the compensator, I was simply curious since I had never seen one that mounted to the pict rail before.

    Thank you. And, Thank You, to everyone else too.

    Unless something changes I plan on taking it to the range next week to put about two hundred rounds through it.

    Yes, that is what I meant. Since, you've been carrying and shooting a 1911 for years, the VP9 will be easy to learn and master. The ergo grip options will really help.

    As for the compensator, I doubt you'll need one. I have one for my HK45, and it doesn't add anything significant in terms of accuracy. YMMV.

    Congrats and welcome! I have used the Hk parts match weight/compensator and it is pretty cool, but really doesn't make that much of a difference in how the gun shoots.

    Want less muzzle flip, buy a long slide. I can hardly tell the difference between blazzer brass and NATO ammunition with the long slide.*

    * might be a slight exageration
