NRA Gun of the Week: Heckler & Koch VP9 Pistol

Heckler & Koch is renowned for the quality of its firearms—quality that has been recognized and adopted by myriad public service agencies around the world. The VP9 is a relatively new (it was American Rifleman's Golden Bullseye winner for "Handgun of the Year" in 2015), full-size, striker-fired pistol built on a reinforced polymer frame. From the sights to the polygonal-rifled barrel, to the trigger and the magazine, the VP9 is a pistol built to perform. Watch as American Rifleman's Kelly Young tells us a little more about this H&K pistol.
