Couldn't wait. Took it out to the range during my lunch break this afternoon and ran 100 rounds of Geco 124gr FMJ thru it. Amazing. It had been 36 years since I last shot a P5 and the only thing I could think of the whole time was, "why did I wait so long to get one of these?"
P5's aren't that hard to come by, unless you're holding-out for a lightly-used commercial model in good condition for a decent price. It had proven to be such a challenge over the years that I had pretty much given-up on the idea but, maybe I should've tried harder?
The P5 has a great trigger. Many German service pistols did during the era it was produced. It just happened to be one of the first. P5's were also renowned for their accuracy and this one did not disappoint. It was almost too easy to hit 4" steel plates in the 7-10 yard range and incredibly easy to make fast, accurate follow-up shots.
I'm going to shoot a video at some point and get it on paper. Today was just a function test and cabin fever therapy. It felt good!
