NRA Gun of the Week: Heckler & Koch VP9SK Pistol

Heckler & Koch is right at home producing polymer-framed pistols, after all, the German manufacturer is credited with introducing the first one in 1970 with the VP70although most erroneously credit Glock, which entered the market 12 years later. And if you think H&K isn't catering enough to the U.S. consumer, the fact that the gun maker is building a factory in the U.S.Columbus, Ga., to be exactis one sure indication that they are serious about making pistols for the American defensive handgun market. A great example can be found in its new VP9SK, the 9 mm sub-compact version of the VP9 pistol that was introduced in 2014 and took home American Rifleman's Golden Bullseye for Handgun of the Year. Ideal for concealed carry, the pistol is packed with ergonomic features that make it adaptable to most any shooter, male or female. In fact, in a recent American Rifleman survey of nearly three dozen women, the HK VP9SK placed in the top five favorites of 24 pistols fired.
