Sweet piece charlie, I am envious.
So where are the pics or how come I cannot see them?
Shipwreck, you really have not lived till you've handled a P7. The single action trigger is smoother and easier than anything other than a good 1911 and the safety of the cocking mechanism just has to be used to believe. The low bore axis, soft recoil, and thin size in simple incredible. Surely someone on this board who lives near you will invite you out. Lurk around the Park Cities Tactical and I'm sure you can find a group out having fun with theirs.

I think I'm gonna' have the whole thing hard chromed by either Fords or Tripp Research down the road. Thanks for the compliments and yeah, the grips feel real good. I bought it unfired.
I gotta say - DON'T Go with Tripp - not if it is a gun U love. He ruined a 1911 of mine in Jan 06, and I even gave him a chance to fix it (I've told the story many times here). Anyway, after that experience - I kinda learned that if the finish is not messed up, be happy w/ what ya got if it is one of your fav guns.
If you have to hard chrome it, I've heard good things about MetaLife. Or, maybe NP3 it.
I carry mine in a Blade-Tech IWB or an Alessi CQC/S.
I bought my P7M8 w/ AF date code back in March when it was supposedly the last ones they were getting in. Out here in SoCal I paid 1500.00. A few with the AG date codes came in recently w/ the Trussville marking and they were quickly bought up at 1600.00 apiece. It's so freaking expensive when it comes to HK firearms out here, but to a few the high price is worth it.
When I do it (and it may be a few months away), it will be Fords. I'm going to carry it and shoot it a while before I have it hard chromed or put night sights on it. I'm expecting a pancake holster from Don Hume any day now. I've been wanting a P7 for a long time and finally decided to take the plunge.
