Sometimes Heckler & Koch gets no respect. The German company was the first to offer a polymer-frame, full-size, striker-fired 9 mm service pistol with its VP70. And it has been a leader in suppressed handguns. Every heard of the Mk 23 Mod 0?
The H&K VP9 made its debut in 2014, and it was two things H&K wasn't well known for at the time—the gun was striker-fired and affordable (well, by H&K standards).
