    I went to the range today with 3 pistols. G19, PPQ, and P7M8. I hadn't shot my P7 in a while, and I am glad I brought it along today. I had planned to split the 300 rounds I had evenly among the guns, but ended up shooting the majority of the ammo through the P7.

    It fits in my hand so well, and I feel so connected with it. It is literally like made for me. I was totally reminded why I have 7 of them :)

    Hands down, the greatest handgun I have ever shot.
     
  2. 7 P7's? Holy crap, wish I could afford just one. Very nice gun and I envy you.

    I just bought a new, unfired P7M8 and haven't got it yet. I'm debating shooting it at all but reports like this have me chomping at the bit to get it to the range.

    I don't know that I'd say the P7 is the greatest handgun ever made but any HK is certainly in the top 3 at least.

    Got a P7 PSP that will drive nails. 100% reliability. Must have put over 2500 rounds through it in two years.

    that will do layaway. may just have to go that route:cool:

    I would say the HK P7M8/13 is one of the best, fastest and safest 9mm handguns.
    Of course it needs proper training to learn how to handle it.
    If you have little training with a P7 an AD is more likely then with other models like a Glock or Sig.

    It is a real shame that HK stopped making the P7.
    I wonder if ever anyone would buy the rights and built them again like with the G3 and PTR.

    I like them and HAD one...wish I still had it but I must say it's not the perfect pistol FOR ME.....that would be the PPQ.
    I consider the P7 a cool oddity.

    Frame heats up after a mag or two. Squeeze cocker is unusual and even dangerous if you use other pistols a lot. Sold mine because I didn't want to be tied to one pistol's MO.

    I hate having money tied up like that.

    I found one for sale on hkpro that was put-up yesterday for 650.... looks like 'well used' but I would sent it in to get NP3+ coating.

    i'd really like to shoot one before I buy it. and honestly, my MP9c shoots so well, I can't see any reason getting something else for carry. plus I have a light/laser on that so

    My girl can't shoot it double action (too heavy) but she loves shooting it SA.

    the handle isn't any bigger than a USP (maybe milimeters)

    Unfortunately, i've never even handled one. It's one of those guns that i plan on picking up when a good opportunity comes along. Just hasn't happened yet.

    She is one of my favorite handguns, my H&K P7M8.

    A classic pistol that is one of a kind.

    I'm not sure about the greatest ever, but its an awesome pistol for sure.

    I've got a P7M8 and P7M10 and love both of them. :cool:

    It's a unique gun, no doubt.
