I thought it was discount ammo. Better than WWB but not premium.

VP9 owner here, to be fair I ran into quite a few issues my first time with the pistol. I broke it down cleaned it and lubed it and ever since i haven't had one problem. 115 and 124 grains shoot fine.

I hope it runs better your next time! I'm loving mine.

I have a fairly new VP9 with 200 rounds through it. Winchester white box, Blazer and Hornady HP, the WWB and Blazer were 115 gr. I'm not sure of the Hornadys grain, self defense rounds. I have had no malfunctions, but one double feed. I take responsibility for that since I press checked and I did not allow the slide to slam forward under its own resistance.

My cousin owns one with several thousand rounds through it and no problems.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a HUGE fan of HK's.......so long as they are legacy HK's. It ain't the same company it used to be.

About a thousand rounds through mine. Not a glitch. Yours must be a Friday afternoon or Monday morning product.

Me too.
OP didn't even mention +P, so how did he know he was shooting +P?

Oh. Just willy nilly throwing it out there.

Same. Always gives me a chuckle.


That said, I don't usually hear my VP9 owning friends complaining about reliability issues.

The thread on teachers having sex with students got very heated, I believe Road Dawg, Boundless and Blaster got the hammer but Blaster's was rescinded because of his involvement in the upcoming MDS Pig Roast

Be careful out there.

I'm surprised we made it to 18 posts before a Glocker chimed in.
Did you hear about the H&K kabooms? Me neither.

Me x however many have had zero issues from Day 1.

Never shot anything through it but 115gr cheap ammo. Have never had any failure of any sort, and first shot it right out of the box, sans cleaning and lubing...
