Looked for a firearm/handgun section, or a place to pose a question...…..Does RG.Org not allow or has it just never come up?

Here goes, I have several handguns I have owned for 40+ yrs and decided to buy myself a new birthday present. Did all the paperwork for the state and received a phone call this morning to come to the PD to pick up my permits. Been shopping, now Iam torn between the Sig P320 and the H&K VP9. I see both can be customized to fit my hand with optional backstraps/grips. Was looking for first hand experience with either, to make an intelligent decision. Or I could just purchase both......

So in your state where you have to apply for a permit just to purchase a firearm ? WOW, THANK GOD for gun friendly states, where you can walk into any gun shop and buy on the spot providing you pass the background check, as for your choices both are an excellent carry piece, If you can carry and seeing that your from the peoples republic, that right was taken away from it citizens.

Can't help you make that decision. Either one will get the job done.
Started shooting when I was a youngin' and kinda backed off when the kids came along.
Bought a few rifles & shotguns over the past several years and shoot more in the winter when I don't ride as much.

I say buy 'em both!

Thanks for the replies...….

Yeah Jersey is crazy stupid about firearms. 10yrs ago I went to buy a pellet rifle to chase the deer out of my yard and couldn't, because I didn't process a NJ firearm permit...smh RecentlyI finally decided to do the paperwork to apply for the permit to buy a rifle/shotgun. Now to buy a handgun is another required permit. The dumbass's in this state elected this liberal Gov and he is working to make things next to impossible regarding handguns, hence me getting my ass in gear with the permits. I now have 3 handgun permits in my possession, good for 180 days. Looking at a 9MM, a 40 cal and a Kimber (Don't have any use for the Kimber, but have always loved them)

I was born and raised in Fla, where you just walked in and purchased whatever...I use to spend many weekends at the range, hell we use to have weapons days at work, where everyone would bring your handgun in to show off....Good ole days
Anyway, Work took me up the east coast and I settled in NJ as work was plentiful. Bought a home and now with the way the market turned, kinda stuck. Just making the best out of the situation.....as I have a group that rides into Penn weekly, usually 275-300 mile lunch runs and I also belong to a drag racing group, though not as active anymore, and I am joining a group that shoots weekly
**Forgot to add, unless your an ex LEO, the chances of getting a carry permit are slim and none**

Hi Bruce; as already mentioned - if you can afford it get both. I mean SIG SAUER and Heckler & Koch are both outstanding, high quality pistols. I would say they are like BMW and MB – either way it's money well spent! ;D
I own a SIG SAUER P226 and the H&K P30 (both 9x19mm) because I prefer hammer-fired rather than striker. I personally like the trigger pull on the hammer better than the striker.

BTW in the Armed Forces we have the Glock 17 (9x19). It's an okay striker-pistol but it's nowhere near the P226 (a SEAL-team favorite) or the P30 when it comes to precision! IMHO

My EDC in summer is a VP9SK, winter or riding is a VP9. You absolutely cannot find a pistol with a better fit for all sizes of hands. The P30 is the same frame, just hammer fired. Everything about the VP9 is great, both sizes shoot like a dream, and adjusting the grip size takes minutes, much quicker than the P320.
That being said, the 320 is a great gun, shoots and carries well. The standard size grip is medium, and it's a bit more "duty" sized than the VP9.
You can't go wrong with either one. I love my HK's and SIG's almost as much as my Shark, but the better carry gun is one of the VP9s.

These Two Brands Always Make Me Want To Look

Great looking weapons and seriously, can’t go wrong either way

I suggest finding a retailer where you can test them out

Then your making the right decision for what’s best for you between the brands

Beretta makes a sweet 96A1 in .40

Sig and H&K both make excellent weapons and you certainly can’t go wrong with ether. Personally, my handgun of choice is a Walther PPQ because it fits in my hand so comfortably. However, I also shoot a Springfield XD and do so much more accurately. With that said, I totally agree with Swomack, who suggested to find a range that offers both guns of your choice and put a few rounds down range. Shooting them both is really the only way you’ll truly know which you prefer. Hell, just buy them both. It’s my opinion that guns are like bikes and he who goes through life owning the most wins.
