Brian, I was surprise it did not follow you home to be added to your non-1911 collection.
Were you able to dry fire?oops, should be "an" HK, not "a" HK (damn cell phone, lol)
At any rate, I was surprised to see both of them in a local shop just sitting there already. I have no interest in the VP40, but I love the VP9. Those that like the 40S&W, should really love this pistol. They have great triggers and feel so good in hand. While I don't like the cartridge, its good to see HK expand this excellent series.
The P30SK is a cool little pistol. It seems slightly smaller then the P2000SK, but I obviously never compared them back to back. The price was $400 less than a P30L sitting right next to it. I was trying to find the difference in quality, if any. All I saw in my very brief time handling the gun is that the P30SK shares the VP series grip texturing, which is not nearly as fine as the original P30 texturing. Whether that's the only cost cutting or not, I have no idea. I did like the pistol quite a bit either way.
Just thought I'd share some quick observations on the two newest additions to the HK lineup. This company seems to be headed in the right direction as of late with some more affordable offerings.
Gino, I didn't dry fire them, unfortunately. I would assume the VP40's trigger to be that of the VP9. I did feel the initial weight of the DA pull on the P30SK and thought it to be similar to that of my P30.Were you able to dry fire?
How was the trigger pull and more importantly the reset?
Took me awhile to find them but I did.. Now have 8 of them.. heheheI like my VP9 and I'm a .40 fan, but just don't find myself shooting .40 as much as I used to. Really the main thing holding me back on anymore HK's, especially the VP, is the mags are as hard to find as unicorns and cost as much as one too. I'm glad to see HK starting to put out quality guns at a more affordable price range. They need to cut loose on the magazine production and get their mags into the same price range and availability as Glock.
I'm sure there will be smaller VP models in the future.VP40? I didn't even know those were out, but I saw CDNN had the P30SK for $588 last week or so. I just can't get excited over either one, but if they release a VP45, VP9K, or VP9SK then I'll probably be looking to get my first HK.
