    The trigger is nice. Who here has a 40 and likes / dislikes it?

    The 9 and 40 are about 480-490 on GB.

    Best striker ever. Got my VP9 FDE for 499.
    Put a Talon grip on it and it shoots great. Great trigger and ergos.

    I absolutely love the VP9. and I concur, it is in fact currently the best shooting striker fired pistol to date. I just naturally shoot it noticeably better then any Glock that we own.

    I have to admit, the mag release is a little weird, and I don't carry this gun so that is not a big deal.

    Supposedly, eventually they are going to release the Mil submission version with the standard button release. Its available in Europe, but most of the guys in their SHOT booth were too busy to talk to any of the little people asking questions, so no clue as to if/when it will show up.

    I got a new VP9 in a trade, and have never taken it out of the box. You guys are talking me into trying it.

    So the SF model 4.5 to 5.5# trigger pull.

    Now the question is how many will they make? If it's a small number as soon as they are sold out the price will go nuts to the upside.

    the SF models are the euro models... not available in the states, however usually a good gander into the future of what will be coming soon to the VP line up as they are the same pistol.

    I've had both and they were natural POI for me. I could really shoot accurate at distance with the VP9 and at shorter 7 yards it wasn't even a challenge. I was the minority that suffered from the trigger "sting" and eventually traded them off. I may at some point try again because they just shot so natural for me. Great pistols!

    I saw that on a Hickok vid last night, The HK drew blood. Sounds drastic.

    The 40 is a good deal bulkier in case you didn’t notice.

    I enjoy my VP40. Went for the LE edition because it was a good bargain for the night sights & extra mag. Good deal from Buds on that one.

    The slide is bulkier, but because of that it’s very enjoyable to fire. Not terrible to conceal. Would recommend getting the 40 to anyone on the fence about buying one.

    (I also have the VP9, and I think I like the VP40 better)

    I have a VP9 LE and it is the the best shooting plastic gun I’ve shot. The only thing I didn’t like is the back plate where you can see the pistol is cocked , I changed mine out to one with out the hole so things don’t find their way in there.

    I'm probably selling off my M&P 2.0's because my VP9 just blows it out the water.

    The P10c came close but i sold it. It has some issues. I'd wait a year or maybe less to get another p10c.

    I purchased a used Vp9 last year and I definitely enjoyed shooting it, even more than my SIG P226 M25. Then a few months ago I picked up a Walter PPQ and have not shot the Hk or SIG since :)

    I think the striker on the Walther PPQ is better than the VP9. I have both pistols and I don't shoot the VP9 much anymore. I think that will go to my son.

    My preference between the two is the VP9. The PPQ is lighter, but less predictable. Both good, so it comes down to personal preference.

    The Euro mag releases are amazing, much better than the little button on the side of the grip.
    mag changes are much faster, with the paddle release. the button forces to toggle the pistol in my hand. but for those with a 5 inch thumb, more power to you.

    thinking about the 40, but....... unsure of it is all.
    i would really like the Glock 10mm.
