Got a holster from Litepath very well made as always.
Stores still have them though.

Just checked and Impact Guns, Budsgunshop, and Europtics all have them in stock - if anyone is interested.

Styer USA though is out of their L9-A1 pistols though, and do not know when they are getting more imported.

Imagine for a minute though. . . If someone like GM or Ford sold their entire run before the first Month was out of a new year.

Somehow I doubt that. I have seen multiple VP9's at wholesalers like Davidsons, RSR, etc...

Magazines on the other hand are nowhere to be found and has hence forth delayed my thoughts of purchasing one.

The thing to keep in mind is that firearms manufacturers are not like car manufacturers, where they have a line or a factory for each model. Kimber for instance, plans their production out for the year, they make frames and slides and then set the line to make so many of a certain model. That's why you just cannot order a Kimber. It won't get delivered until that model comes back around into production and the your dealer waits his turn, like waiting for an upgrade to first class. He who spends the most, gets the prize.

I imagine that HK does a similar thing. They make X number of these for the year and then move on to the next model.

You beat me to it.My LGS only uses certain distributors.
I would be curious on the number made.

Mags are in stock here never had issues with their service.

$70. Fuck that. Adam is almost always at the top end for pricing. Don't get me wrong, I have bought from him before and doubtless will again but were I in the market for these mags I would keep looking. If I had to pay $70 each for the 5-6 mags I would have to go with the gun it would definitely lead me to just stick with my G17/19/26 until that situation changed.

As well, H&K needs a compact version of the VP9. A lot of folks are not inclined to carry a full size pistol around all the time.

HK mags have always been pretty expensive. I just picked up four brand new, still in the plastic, p7m8 mags for $35 a piece - that was a really good deal. As they are normally going for twice that.

That is an interesting comparison. Yet vehicle manufacturers do run out, and can only increase production via building new factories once all shifts are going full tilt.

It's surprising to me that gun manuf. haven't changed their production model to keep pace with the increasing numbers of firearm sales.
I only say this because certainly seems to me that [besides greater numbers of potential sales and increasing sales per annum,] each Month there is a New-Model _______ handgun out that everyone wants. If the VP9 is the shizzle, why not shizzle 'em till they drop?

Perhaps they just want to keep demand high. They obviously know something I don't in that regard.

While true, IMHO If they hope to put a dent in Glock's business this won't fly. But as a German friend of mine said when we talked about this maybe an hour after I posted, "You are over thinking this, H&K doesn't GAF."

They seem to pass the test of time I got G3 mags from the 60's that are still going strong.
HK parts is pricey they had P7 PSP mags for a decent price awhile back.
There was a rumor that HK was having money problems so maybe the HK don't GAF attitude might change?


Just FYI the VP9 and P30 use the same mags.

Having consulted for one, I can tell you they have great minds, love to shoot, most build great guns but their business sense is for shit. No way to get legit money for a small business under this admin, the venture capitalists buy you platinum patrone and then want to ass rape you when you get home.

I know it seems like a logical decision, but I hear of this dynamic happening time and time again. HK? maybe they can break the mold but its better to leave them (customers) wanting than to waste time building guns that may end up sitting on a shelf and not building guns for which orders have been placed.

Never understood this myself fully, but I do now. You never know how the market will react to certain products. Then there is the economy,

Then of course are production delays, delays from vendors, etc.. etc.. No one wants to get stuck with thousands of guns sitting in a warehouse or at the factory like Colt did with many of their carbines because the market fizzled.

A few weeks back while I was still waffling, there were mags everywhere for 40-ish dollars.

My plan was to sell the like new G17 and the 17 magazines and then buy as many VP9/P30 mags I could stomach.

There was a guy selling one with the standard two mags, and whatever else came in box for it on a Tennessee Gun Forum for $575. It was pretty much new as he had only put a box through it then kept it in the safe. The only reason he was selling it, and some other guns was to raise funds for appliances in his new house.

He was local, it wouldn't have had taxes or background check fees...I'm kind of kicking myself for passing on it, but I had just bought a few big items and didn't want to blow the extra cash.
