Is there really an entry level HK pistol? That may be a Glocktalk question(just kidding). I’m sure you would get more info if you specified by price or something. I’m new to HK so I wish I could help but I’m still trying to learn

Heckler and Koch are the top premium echelon of Firearms period! There really isn’t an answer to the question you asked, at least as I understand it. Maybe if you ask it differently or be more specific in what you mean ( by entry level moving up the chain), you probably will get a better answer to your question.

I'd say the place to start is a police trade in USP. It all goes up from there, with a mint Jubilee P7M8 at the top. 😉

My first HK was a P7M8 so it is an entry level HK then.

Most of the time, a larger framed pistol is easier to shoot. An optic makes it even easier to shoot after you learn how to use it.
I would have to say the VP9 OR orVP9L OR would be the easiest to shoot.
P2000SK in 40 S&W would probably be the most difficult to shoot for me.
It really all depends on what you are going to be using it for. If you want a hammer or striker?

You can’t go wrong with a VP9/L, P30/L, USP/Expert in 9mm as a first handgun.

Savage… you still got it?
Nope. I started late in life and on my own, no guidance, so I went with what internet said was the best. @2008 I decided to figure out how not to suck and what was the best on my own. That was the end of P7 and whole DelFatti outfit or me.
I do agree with internet on some things tho: if he makes it for your gun and you want leather, Matt is the best.

I’m not sure how you managed to “suck” with a P7M8.

Multiple choice options:

1. I am very, very good at sucking. I repeat, very good.
2. Upbringing in a negative reinforcement oriented culture. Maybe I didn't really suck. Although I did.
3. The gun doesn't support the type of shooting I wanted to be good at.
4. All of the above.

P7 was made for the reasons it was. Using it to learn how to shoot 2 sec Bill Drill from concealment or making an M class weren't those things, but that's the path I've been walking. It was used, it was carried, I took it to classes, Vickers, Rogers, somebody else. I think the round count on it was 10K when I sold it, but it stopped being an adequate developmental tool for me.

To each his own. I am curious though: what was it about the M8 that you feel prohibited your ability to draw and fire 6 rounds quickly and accurately from concealment? That is, after all, what the pistol was designed for.

6 rounds, absolutely nothing. Repeating that 4-5 times was another story. My tolerance for the heat was under one box with that kind of pace, and then gloves had to come out, and then I had to put it down. My today's practice was 300 rounds in a balmy 92 degrees; I would've needed 5-6 P7s to get through it.

In 2011 I switched from a strong side IWB to appendix carry and rapidly found out that the P7 was the worst gun amongst those that I owned for that carry position. That and a couple of other things sealed the deal. This place being an HK and a P7 sanctuary, I try refrain from talking what else negative I thought of that gun.

Neat gun but, as you said, clearly a case of to each his own.
