Over and out
Yea, it's just the/your "getting into" quip/posit compelled me to say they started doing that over forty years ago.True, but that was not a very successful pistol. A safety where the mag release should be, Euro style butt mag release and the funkiest trigger in history. I think the VP9 will by a slight improvement.
It also uses P30 mags - and will likely fit some/most P30 holsters - so there are already accessories to support the gun. In a way - HK did with the P30/VP9 what Sig did with the P250/320 - they took a hammer fired gun, made some tweaks, and build a striker fired platform out of it with some common parts between the two.
