    Default Shopping for a P7. Which variant should I get for a shooter/carry gun?

    Just like the title says, I am now in the market for a P7. I have been wanting one for a long time and I'm in a position to purchase one now. I want to hear your opinion on which one I should get for a shooter and occasional carry gun. I am leaning towards the P7 PSP. Mostly because it is one of the cheaper variants and I plan on shooting it a lot

    Agreed--- just a plain P7, with a look over by James to ensure proper functioning!!!

    IMHO the P7 is a collectible. I carried one concealed and shot it often in the 90's. I found it to be extremely well made and accurate. I also found it to be very heavy for a 9mm carry gun. There was also the issue of trigger finger burns if you shot it quite a bit on the range.

    Get one for a collectible and occasional range gun but there are dozens of better carry guns, several from H&K.

    I’m selling all my 9mm P7s. I daily carry an M10. For me the M10 is the best shooting P7 made. They have noticeably less recoil than the 9mm.

    I would recommend a standard P7 which is sometimes referred to as a PSP. The Police trade in P7s are usually the least expensive and most have the flush mag release which works well for conceal carry. Just because it looks good on the outside does NOT mean it’s a good pistol. You should try to find one in the best mechanical condition for the least amount of money. That way you will be able to enjoy it and not worry about it.

    I agree with, and cc the above.
    I recommend you not use the P7 as a range toy as in the quantity of rounds that you will fire if I understand your "shooter" statement.

    P7 or M8, the edge going slightly to the M8. You can find Bund or New Jersey police guns for under 2,000 at times. That's what I would look for. A lot of these guns were carried allot more than shot. Good luck on the mission.

    The key is to get several P7's so you can enjoy one or some at the range.

    If this is a carry gun, then I would advise the M8. In the case of an encounter the mag release lever allows faster reloads.

    I may have misspoke for a lack of a better word, maybe mistyped is what I am looking for, when I said "a shooter and occasional carry gun" what I meant was "an occasional shooter and carry gun". I am in the market for one mostly because of it being a collectable. But, I would like to have one that I can shoot without feeling like by doing so I am devaluing it.
