    I see safety class is essential, I'll look into it... don't want to shoot myself or by stander on accident lol

    Best price on mags I've found is Cross Creek Guns. $37.50 if I remember right.

    Good on you for the great attitude about safety. As a fairly new shooter myself, I found that individualized high quality instruction cannot be undervalued. If you learn good technique at the beginning (and avoid picking up bad "muscle memory"), you can very quickly improve your proficiency. I think of it sort of like learning a golf swing. Once bad habits are ingrained, it's twice the effort to unlearn them. Same with pistols. Learning proper grip, stance, sight alignment, sight picture, trigger control, etc. correctly from the inception will make you a safer shooter and a more effective shooter. Plus, it'll be a lot more fun!

    In your area, you might check out Paul Howe's offerings in Nacogdoches.

    Good luck and welcome!

    Man, I wish I had seen your post earlier. I already purchased 3 mags from hkparts.net. I'll check out that site and cancel my order if I have to... thanks for posting.

    Sombra - that's a nice analogy! Nacogdoches is quite a drive for me but I'll check it out, thanks for your insight.

    You picked a heck of a gun for your first handgun. Enjoy it.

    Thanks! Did a lot of research before pulling the trigger, I'm sure I made the right choice. PPQ and P320 are great choices too but the HK won me over.

    Man, hkparts.net already charged and ship my mags. I'm tempted to buy more at the price you posted but I spent a lot of money on accessories over the weekend and need to chill. I'll buy more at a later date.


    I disassembled my VP last night and the recoil spring doesn't have much red on it... does that mean my gun is not new? Watched Sootch00's video and his new VP coil spring is completely red... just wondering, not bothered by it. The frame itself is pretty clean, I wiped it down and oil the rail and all the other spots shown in one of the youtube video by the infamous navyman.

    I'll be taking this bad bitch to the range tomorrow... stoked!!!!
