If you mean the HK P7, complete hipster "old things are better" gun. I don't get the allure. The squeeze cocker is weird, the trigger feels like shit, magazines and parts required for routine maintenance are a pain to find. They're also stupidly expensive since they've been discontinued for decades and you don't get much for your money other than you can say "I own a P7"

@Seul

It's my home office, so if someone comes in at all there's going to be a real problem...;)

They’re great guns although they may be a hindrance at some higher level performance standards.

Pride of ownership is pretty high although there’s not much sense in that when your pistol is concealed tucked in you waistband all day long.

What are you guys running for sights/lights/holsters etc?

All my pistols have Trijicon fiber optic sights. My holsters are Tenicor Velo appendix holsters. I always have a striker control device installed on my glocks as well as a grip plug. When I do run a light it’s a Surefire x300. I did increase the trigger weight to get a more crisp break but that’s about it.

On my rifle I run a Trijicon MRO, Scalarworks mount and back up fixed irons and an x300. Expensive accessories but totally worth it. I run a magpul sling on my ar15 too with a blue force gear u loop to attach it. No quick detach for me.

I try to keep everything slick and light so there isn’t a lot of stuff on my guns.

One of these days I’ll take a photo of me wearing my shit hits the fan kit including belt mounted mags/Med kits and body armor. The list of items reads like a yard sale

Came across this trolling a forum regarding the HK VP9:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAiepTZ66Hs&feature=youtu.be


All these single action striker fired pistols make me really nervous.


This is the third pistol I've seen that has issues with the striker being dropped without the trigger being pulled. The other two are the Steyr L9/M9/C9 series and the Sig P320 (supposedly this has been fixed, i still think their triggers suck and their mags are too expensive)

I know you’re a Glock fan but are there any other companies you’d recommend that make good, reliable firearms? I’m looking into a self-defense training course but classes are booked into July. I figured I’d get hands on experience first to get an idea on what works for me but there are so many companies to choose from. Basically, I’m looking for reliability but something economical (but not super cheap). Is Springfield Armory good? Palmetto?

Springfield armory is garbage. Run from it like your head is on fire.

Psa isn’t known for quality either.

If I weren’t into Glocks I would look into smith and Wesson m&ps

The CZ P10c is supposed to be good too.

Honestly, in the circles I hang around everyone uses a Glock. I don’t have that much experience with other plastic striker fired guns.

If you’re interested double action single action hammer fired guns I could talk your ear off. They’re more of a hobby for me. Plastic striker fired guns are purely pragmatic.

If I went with a Glock, which would you recommend? The G19? I’d probably go with 9mm based on your earlier recommendation.  I kinda want something that would serve as an all-purpose gun.

I’ve been watching several Glock 19 YouTube reviews and so far so good. The only downside I can see with this is that it’s another rabbit hole i’m going down. Now I gotta look into ammo, a safe, training/safety classes, etc.

Big daddy unlimited has excellent prices but you have to buy a membership. Sgammo is my go to for ammo. Tenicor is my favorite holster brand.

Don’t forget to buy new sights. The sights that come with Glocks are a joke.

Ha! A gun thread on the Iron Heart Forum, I had no idea! That’s awesome. Have gone back and read through it and just want to say thank you to @DougNg for being such a great ambassador for the 2A community, keep it up!

@Boras

Thanks, I just want to pass along info that I've learned along the way. Took me a lot of time and $$$
Guns are not for everyone, I just want to share my experiences and maybe help folks make educated decisions.

I appreciate my fellow forum members who don't troll this thread even though they may not agree with my views on firearms.
At the end of the day, we all have the same goal: not get hurt.
