This topic has drifted to an interesting area, as it relates to triggers and LE guns.
I spent a great deal of last fall and winter trying to talk my self out of buying a Walther PPQ. Many people at that time were making the argument that the PPQ's trigger is TOO nice for a LE/Defensive gun.
Those with time shooting the VP9 have all commented on the positive aspects of the trigger. But even so, I was wondering when someone would start talking about Apex making upgrades to the VP9.
My LE career started at the beginning of the semi auto phase. I was two recruit classes past being issued a revolver. We went from S&W 5906's to 5946 DAO's, to the M&P9. I have seen the effects of a gun that's easier to shoot for the masses who's only trigger time for the year is when they attend mandated firearms training as it relates to putting rounds on target under stress. I am sold on the striker fired system for this reason. But there is such a thing as too nice/light of a trigger. Some of the reworked M&P guns I've seen people compete with would fall into that category.
My VP9 arrived at my FFL yesterday, and I managed to pick it up on the way into work. As my boss would frown upon test firing a new pistol within the inter-city neighborhoods that I supervise, I have only dry fired it so far. For a Virgin pistol, this trigger is nice. It may not be as light or as crisp as some guns being used in various matches or shooting games. But for a gun designed to be carried in the real world, it's really nice. I can't wait to see how the trigger feels when I smooth it out a bit by firing a could thousand rounds through it.
Personally, I am stuck with carrying a M&P9 for a duty weapon. As we just transitioned to our second issue of the M&P9 last year, I doubt I'll see another issued gun before I retire. But I am at a point in my life where I am looking at life after retirement. For this, I see the VP9 being a strong contender for becoming my daily companion.
I hope the VP9 becomes a series of guns for H&K. I'd really like to see a VP9sk come out to accompany the VP9.
