Heckler & Koch's Volkspistole (or the "People's Pistol" in German) is the company's resplendent answer to American demand for a civilian-shooter pistol. While this latest HK doesn't represent groundbreaking technology, it's rather simply a perfected fusion of proven engineering concepts. The VP9 and VP40 boast reliable protection from a world-renowned name in firearms manufacturing.
Will Dabbs shares, "In our testing, accuracy was perfectly acceptable with either option. The 9mm is easier on the wrists, but the .40 S&W is hardly abusive. I ran some of everything through these two HK pistols and naturally had no stoppages. My new VP40 currently resides in the nightstand beside the bed. The title of apex predator in the Dabbs family arsenal is a coveted position."
