    Default My 1st HK

    After a couple weeks of research, I finally pulled the trigger on my first handgun purchase today and it's a beauty. HK VP9 M700009-A5 😍 I started out thinking I wanted to buy a sig but eventually decided on either the VP9 or a PPQ. I preferred the paddle magazine release so walked out with the VP9.

    This is my first new gun purchase, any advice or tips on breaking it in? Dos and don'ts?

    Shoot it and enjoy it; practice makes perfect.

    Welcome to the site, and congratulations on your first, HK sidearm!!!
    Read the manual on cleaning before using and preferred bullet weight--- brass-cased ammunition--- always clean after every firing session.

    I started out with some 115 grain range ammo and had some feed issues. I switched to 124 grain NATO and no issues since. Winchester white is pretty cheap and seems to work really well for me.

    Welcome and congratulations on your new HK. You will learn to love that VP9 you have; especially the beautiful stock trigger. Sig Sauer and Walther make some great firearms; but HK is in a league of its own. HK makes the rest of them pale in comparison, in my book anyways. Practice, Practice, Practice will make you and your VP9 a lethal combination. You will learn and find a lot of good information from others on this great HKPro Forum we have here. Enjoy your VP9, as you have made a awesome choice in a handgun......

    It definitely left a mark on me. I'm in CA so I ended up paying $900 for a used VP9 and $1.8k for a used USP9 Expert.

    Congrats on your VP9 OP, it's definitely a great striker fire pistol

    OMG!! That's crazy. I just passed on a VP9 tact locally for 570(only passed cause I just bought a m17 surplus). Whats driving the price up so much, bad dealers or licensing fees? Or are they just not selling gins out there anymore?
