    I've never even heard of a VP70. If you want HK I'd suggest a USP. If not, hit your local rental range and spend some time trying different models.

    And I don't think just anyone can buy a firearm with a removeable stock and a 3 round burst. Well not without paying extra.

    With a stock you would need to SBR it and I dont know if they are available, The pistol itself in semi is available dont know about classIII ones, They've been out of production for about 20 years but you still see'em for sale. I picked up a vp a couple months back, got it mostly for collecting since its the original polymer framed handgun, accuracy its ok, I dont really care for the trigger on it, doubt it would be that good for ccw due to lack of holsters that would fit it. Mag's aren't to cheap for it, its a nice gun but I probably not the best choice for a first gun.

    :werd: Looks to be a) extremely rare; b) extremely expensive; c) not pratical for a first handgun. I'd stick with something mainstream and in current production.
