I enjoy a variety of firearms and calibers, and I've waited too long to order the HP25. It is amazing value for the money, and I'm happy that it's made in the U.S.
On arrival, I found it was pretty heavy in lube, so much I had to wipe it and the magazine down before firing. My FFL is also a range, so I got to try it out within minutes of receiving it. I had the forethought to bring along some ammo, too.
The HP25 is accurate and I perceived virtually no recoil. I achieved tight groups at 5 and 7 yards, and had no feed or firing issues with PMC .25 50 grain.
It is a heavy gun, but that just makes it "feel good" in the hand. It comes with a single mag, but additional mags can be quickly ordered from the manufacturer.
As many have noted, it's really hard to get the advertised capacity (10) in the mag. I could manage 7 okay, 8 is where it got tricky. Hopefully leaving it with 8 for a few days will help condition the spring, but seriously, even getting that 8th one in almost caused me to cut my thumb.
Otherwise, no complaints. It's accurate, affordable, American made, and fun. Even someone with weak hands can fire this. Cock the hammer back and the slide racks even easier.
It's a good starter/training pistol for new shooters.
