The P17 is a mediocre pistol but a fantastic value. I bought one to check it out even though I own a Feinwerkbau 80 and a 100. The trigger is heavy and has a ton of creep, but it’s capable of surprising accuracy. Learn to shoot it accurately and you’ll be a master with a better gun. I played with my P17 for a while, wrote it up on my web page, and then shipped it off to a friend for him to play with. Even if it only lasts a year of regular use you’d probably spend more on pellets than you did on the gun.
